    Anderson has been in a slump for sure and if we can dump him for a player of need, then so be it, but he is def a key piece in his ability to stretch the floor so far out. Yes he can be a liability to the point where he isnt playable against some units but hes not as bad as everyone is making him out to be. We played well against the Warriors who even without Durant are more talented.

    Again, we just need to get healthy and the addition of Green, defensive lapses and all only adds depth and makes having Ryno quite a luxury.

    You really think a risk taker like Morey cares about these concerns? DMC would not be the first "head case" he takes a flyer on.

    I would do this obviously but why would New Orleans? I mean they have been one of the most incompetent NBA organizations in recent history so I guess anything is possible.

    I’d be willing to part with Capela if it meant getting rid of Ryno as well. Maybe you could pull a multi team deal and we snag Deandre Jordan and another solid wing.

    Wishful thinking o_O:)

    Excellent game notes write up. Hope to see more of these! :)

    Capela needs to play with more "force." (watch DeAndre Jordan play as an example). While Draymond Green is a good measuring stick, I always use Adams as a measuring stick for Capela. He is a beast on rebounding. Capela can be good at out running players and being "bouncy" with rebounds. But the "quick" AND "strong" centers give him problems. Capela's role is huge for this team. They need a lot from him.

    Anderson & Tucker's scoring going south really hurts. They need SOMETHING from these guys. Tucker at least adds some defense, but he still is fouling too much.

    This should be stickied, would love to see you writing a bit more Clutch, but know you are busy.

    Appreciate the take.

    I would be shocked if he is traded --- because that means someone was on the receiving end.

    @tinman did you see this burn? I feel like you need to see this. That's that 99er sting right there

    I wrote in last night's game thread: "PJ has got Ryanitis."

    I have given up defending Ryno. Now he can't even shoot on the road. And Tucker has got whatever is infecting Ryno.

    On the negative:

    *Warriors forced a switch several times involving CP3 in last nights game. They didn’t want
    to show too much before the playoffs; but they got some video of Draymond taking CP3 into the post. Klay
    taking CP3 into the post. Iggy as well. Just testing our help defense and where will it come from.

    Warriors will milk that when they play Cleveland (Isaiah Thomas); and they will when the Rockets play
    them in a series. Heavy dose of forced switch vs CP3....send help (free open 3-pt shooter)......or Livingston,
    Durant, Draymond, Klay will all rise above him and get off an easy 8 footer. Shades of Livingston on JET/Prigi.

    *Rockets play the Warriors with a glaring weakness at PF. It’s almost 5-on-4 as a result when Ryan is
    on the floor.

    Positive:

    *CP3-offense
    *Gerald Green-offense
    *Weber-Green attack was productive with CP3 sitting
    *Capela-offense (needed to show something vs GSW.....something to build on)

    Give me more players like Gerald Green who is locked and loaded before catching the ball and
    then releases with an extremely quick release.

    Oh you guys are great. But I beat @Clutch to the punch on his story with "We ain't got enough." The talking points are virtually identical. But I published mine first. I also posted about Bobby Brown first. Same thoughts. Wondering why we wasted a roster spot and salary on him. And I pumped Bell in the draft and subsequently lamented us not getting him before @Clutch did.

    But even so, the plagiarize thing was a joke. I for one love the 99ers for being here first and for making this happen, even when I disagree with your takes.
