    why is there a need for a alternate universe. it just happened a year ago. everyone has seen them on this actual team and what this team can be. And that's a true championship contender. This current team looks to be scrapping to just make the playoffs with no identity

    Thats what I dont get in the playoffs ariza was terrible and Luc didnt even play. Everyone is calling for melo head after going 1-11 but ariza does that in a game 7 to go to the finals and gets a pass

    Paul’s career => Playoffs runs? Champions?

    I am thankful for your opinions, too. Remember we don’t have to agree.

    I think Brandon Knight was supposed to be the more certain backup PG, but coming off a knee injury, has an infection, no timetable for his return, so yea, that’s kinda dead for now. It’s times like these where you can still pick up the long shot guy, but also pick up a no upside, but steady enough guy like Raymond Felton with the Thunder. They won’t wow you, they are not going to get better, but they can fill in 10-15 minutes and fill in for injury.

    I don’t know if there are any of those guys available though, right now all I can think of would be guys like Chalmers and Jack who are probably still more serviceable in the PG role than MCW, but not good by any means.

    There is a distinct possibility that 2018 Ariza could have declined from the previous year and Luc would have been injured.

    Luc has been injured with the Clippers and played spare minutes.

    4-6 in meaningless november games... dealing with multiple injuries and suspensions to core players and starters and defensive coordinator being out.... this team does have an identity... 2 pointgods
    they are just coasting and taking it easy... as they should , cause you dont win championship early in november

    How do we get Bazemore from Atlanta to be our starting SF? Is Brolo untouchable right now with how he's shooting? Rolo a buyout candidate? Would love to have the twins for size and different skill sets.

    Are we just going to ignore that mighty Celtics, who play in the east, who lost no players from last year, with the most stacked roster in NBA, and the best home crowd in NBA, and the best coach, had no injuries and suspensions, are still struggling to integrate new players ( who are far more talented than ennis mcw melo and stein) into their system?
