I knew we'd lose yet I'm still really pissed, nothing positive to take from this game.  I know Big Al is supposed to be our leading scorer but he looked like a black hole on offense and defense tonight.  Last year on offense Kemba was flying around finding the open man or creating a shot for himself, tonight it was just dump to Big Al and he rarely passed the ball.  His midrange jumper was horrible and he was even worse on defense.  He doesn't even try to step up.  MKG played great defensively and was great near the hoop but he's never going to be worthy of that second overall pick with that jump shot.  Meanwhile Drummond had 12-8 tonight, fugingg yay!!!  Zeller did nothing n noteworthy but such a small sample.  Looked scared on offense and bad on defense.  Kemba only took 10 shots despite being our best offensive player.  McBob is the only one who really played a good game.  We're much better on defense but offense is just a snoozefest.  Dump it to Big Al and let him work.  How does this progress our core players?

checking from the highlights and boxscore, we are still the "Bobcats". Looking like a Top5 lottery pick.

Come on it was a road game against a top tier western conference team. Did you really think we were going to win or even really keep it that close? They played hard for 2.5 quarters but I, for one, am not expecting an nba title this year.

It doesn't, lol. Big Al has and always will be a low post volume shooter who makes around 48-49% of his shots. He's too big and slow footed to play good defense and that's the problem. His per is deceiving in that he gives up his per right back with him being so bad on defense and being a volume post scorer.

Still really high on Zeller, just may be a steep learning curve

Not me... Didn't want mclemore at all. Still don't, he alone isn't going to fix the cats and they needed low post scoring worse.

Heat were playing back to back without wade. It was also a home game for Philly, not miami's home opener.

Philly beat the Heat.
