Lavar says Melo is not happy

Less concerned about the turnovers--it's the NBA, and with a fast paced style like Lamelo plays, you can live with some TOs that come from being aggressive and pushing the ball.  Where I think Borrego and the staff are concerned is the defense.  They feel it's bad enough that the trade off between a better offense with Lamelo on the floor isn't worth the porous defense. I don't have the on/off +/- and other advanced stats to back it up, but that's what they eye test says. 

It's what I was concerned about before the draft. I was saying Lamelo couldn't be a star if he didn't improve his defense because it would cancel out his offense. For what it's worth, I've been willing to eat crow on my Lamelo stance, because his offense has been better than I expected even with inconsistency with his shooting. And he's doing much better at such a young age than I expected. He's got a lot of time to improve on all aspects of his game.

Well...our defense as an entire team has been horrid the last few games

I think that Lavar is bullshitting about this. Lamelo has come in as a rookie being very humbled with the mentality of wanting to learn and earn his way into a starter. You can tell that all of his teammates love him and are behind him. I don’t care that Ball isn’t starting right now, but he should be getting a lot more minutes. Same with Miles Bridges. Time to fired James Borrego after this season. 

Yes bridges and ball should both be getting more time on the court

not ready to fire coach after a dozen games

We need to win some games

Mitch has been solid. Calm down and poo. 

I agree Mitch has done a nice job thus far. Only took nearly a decade for MJ to allow a GM who had a clue.

To be fair, he did not look good against the bulls. Multiple turnovers and bad 3 point shots I can see why he was taken out of the game but what I dont understand is when he's playing well, he still gets taken out of the game

I would think that professional basketball coaches don't pay any mind to angry parents. That's for YMCA coaches.

Unfortunately, this angry parent has a big platform. He also is echoing what many others (both fans and media) are saying at this point. If you draft this kid and plan to fug around like this, you are inviting a poo storm. Not sure wtf Borrego is thinking.

Yeah, everybody knows he's the future. He's NBA ready. You found that out already.

You've got a 6'8" point guard coach. Miles Bridges needs to start too. Diplomacy doesn't win games. Your best players do.

I have watched every game this season, honestly after the back to back triple dub games he should have been starting from there. There is a thought that graham and rozier are only getting ridiculous minutes to increase trade value.  The problem is graham has been absolute trash all season outside of 2 games and now rozier is starting to slump but both are still logging almost 40 minutes. Lamelo has the same stats and only playing half the minutes as graham. Considering that its still a dangerous line borrego is walking and some serious changes need to made to the lineup sooner than later.

No, thats when he initially invested in the team. He took full control in 2010.

Air Dolt took full control of all basketball operations when he came on in June of 2006.

"As part of the deal, Jordan took full control over the basketball side of the operation, with the title "Managing Member of Basketball Operations"."

"On June 15, 2006, Jordan announced he had bought a minority stake of the Charlotte Bobcats. As part of the deal, Jordan was named Managing Member of Basketball Operations and given full control over the basketball side of the team operation."

Lamelo's defense was a concern before the draft and is a concern now. 

These are also the same fans that think dumb poo like CMC is a slot WR, NY makes good BBQ, QAnon is real, and that Burger King makes good food.
