I got to talk this one out before I pick my player. 


PG: Lillard

SF: Durant

PF: A. Davis

C: Marc Gasol 


Basically what I am missing from this line-up is a tough nosed defensive player. I basically am missing my defensive stopper who can shoot the 3 to keep teams honest. Basically what I need is an MKG with a 3 point shot and I would feel great about this starting 5. 


So in saying that I would probably choose a 2 SF line-up and pick up a guy like a Kawhi Leonard or even MKG (I know I am a homer). I truly think every team needs a MKG type player to have a complete TEAM! 


But for the basis of this pole I will choose Klay Thompson. His defense is serviceable but he has the 3 point shooting I am looking for.

Picked Gasol. He's got some range and excellent Defense. 


Free throw shooting knocked Howard out. And chemistry knocked Cousins out. 


PG: Lillard (still wavering on why I chose him over Curry but went with my first instinct) 

C: Marc Gasol 

In Topic: Current Team: Stay The Course or Shake It Up?

Stay the course. Way too early to determine how this team will look come end of the year. I say if we are still looking terrible end of december and beginning of january now we can start to panic. 


82 games is a lot of games and we are introducing 2 new starters and pretty much an entirely new bench rotation. Now take into account all the injuries thus far and that equals a recipe for instability and bad play. 

Why do you think we have one amazing quarter or half and then a completely terrible one? Right now we have a bunch of individuals playing 1 on 1 basketball. My hope is that they can start playing as a unit but Im thinking end of dec. 

In Topic: Another "suck it" game to Kemba haters...

Kemba is our leader. Yes he's inconsistent, but I feel like that will improve when the chemistry improves with the additions we have. Is he going to be a 10 ast guy. Absolutely not. But can he be a leader of a playoff team. Absolutely. 


Fact is he will drive you crazy at times and then he will make you feel amazing at other times. Im hoping that he will become more consistent in the future but there should really be no hating on the guy. Would you have rather paid for a Thomas or a Bledsoe? 


He's still very young. Let our young team grow together!

In Topic: Rhythm - It Matters

The problem is and always be Identity. The first few games when they discouraged Cam running, so throwing the ball came out quicker with shorter routes. Cinci game Read Option came back but so did the No Huddle. That game was played a ton out of the no huddle. Then Seattle and NO game almost all Read Option with no I-formation runs. Also no NO Huddle and no rhythm and play clock almost always at the end. 


This game they try to play the time of possession  game almost exclusively huddle and running the play clock down to the end on each possession just like against Seattle and NO but this time tried to do almost no Read Option runs. 


So it comes back to no identity as an offense. Every game we change our identity and it isnt working.
