    15.7%
  4. No, we need his scoring punch off the bench.

    47.1%

    Perhaps we can agree that he plays terrible transition D because he falls on every missed layup and stays there for a second complaining he was fouled?

    None of those guys are particularly good on either side of the floor.

    The heat Lillard is getting from pundits right now is to the extreme.

    Skip Bayless is beside himself right now.

    and there we go...It's Dame's fault CJ shot and airball and missed 5 FT's....fuck, that Dame is like a voodoo doll. He's probably why it's rained the last 3 days

    Put Steph Curry on this team right now, and he looks exactly the same as Dame. He has the luxury of teammates+better system.

    Stotts just had the gall to say the Blazers didn't get any points in transition because they were taking the ball out of the net.
    Blazers don't run.... what is he taking about?

    Dame is the best player on a team in the Final 4. Seems tier 1 to me.

    I see this completely different. Stotts has made adjustments in both game 2 and game 3 that worked very well.
    This game he even did what i was looking for and went big. The only thing he has not tried is going young. I assume that will happen in game four if they are down in the fourth quarter.

    They ARE more talented. Our guards are out of gas. Aminu and Harkless aren’t good enough. If they are getting these kind of minutes you don’t have a championship level team. Damian couldn’t beat Jerebko off the dribble. He’s beat.

    why do you guys who trash Dame all the time even bother with the obvious fucking lie "I love Dame". Tonight, I've seen 3 different guys who have spent the last half-dozen game threads bashing Lillard say "I love Dame but...". It's pathetic and nobody who has paid any attention believes it for a second. Just own your fucking bile and bash without the lie

    This off-season I’d like Terry to add a veteran coach to his staff. Look at Kerr’s staff, he has guys like Mike Brown (great defensive mind/finals HC), and Ron Adams who has been around forever and is also an elite defensive mind (early 2000s Bucks/Rose Bulls).

    The good note Leonard had great game and Zach didn't shoot well but he had 8 rebounds and 1 block not bad.

    One has to think that if Nurkic were here, he’d bring to us what Green is bringing the Warriors rn, we need that brash energy.

    With all this Dame bashing, he'd more than be welcome to come to GSW. Have no idea if we retain Durant or not, but Dame is no longer wanted in Portland, he can come home.

    I like Curry, but I honesty rather give Simons his spot next season. He’s bigger, way more athletic, and he needs minutes.
