    I know we're all pretty down about WB sucking ass and the refs ****ing us and all...

    But on a small upside Clint's rebounding like a maniac.

    He's currently averaging 15 & 15 with 2 blocks (65 FG%) in under 33 mpg. Very impressive numbers.

    Also noteworthy, his defensive rebounding incentive is looking very likely and will legitimately **** us on Lux Tax, we're likely gonna have to end up sending out multiple 2nds to clear some contracts like Nene & Green to dodge it.

    Capela is basically the same player, playing a faster pace.

    It’s funny because everyone is using this as logic for their own agenda.

    “okay great, now that his value is up, let’s trade him”

    okay cool, I always believed in him! Glad he’s finally turned the corner.”

    Sorry guys, but your eyes are fooling you, yet again. We have no more evidence for or against keeping him, or trading him, than we did last season, and every GM in the league knows it.

    He is playing great but I’d be a lot more excited if he developed semi legit outside jumper that was moderately a threat and if his FT% wasn’t sliding backwards in the 40s. Those gripes aside he’s easily been our second best player this year and he’s been quite consistent as the season has rolled on here. If only he had a jumper or better a 3pt shot yikes he’d be scary

    That’s a good point. Hate this dumb system we run all the time yet we allow the worst shooter on the team to fire mid range jumper after mid range jumper when he sucks as a shooter.

    The chemistry between westbrook and capeala has been good.

    Of course it's been good because it's westbrook we're talking about.

    Clint has taken an extreme leap this season.

    If they kept CP3 and just ran it back, they’d maybe be title favorites.

    Alas...
