    Can anybody tell me why Gordon is getting all these minutes and Clemons is getting absolutely none? Every game we have to sit here and watch him put up brick after brick after brick and not do anything else. What does he do better than Clemons?? This is getting ridiculous i'm tired of defending this team.

    Neither should be playing. We have enough garbage, undersized, chucker guards who dont give a **** about defense. Absolutely baffling how bad gordon is yet mike still insists on playing him over capela.

    As soon as he's eligible to be traded I hope we pull the trigger.

    Because EG is a proven veteran who has been a huge part of our team for years and Clemons is an undrafted, unproven, 5’9 shot chucker who would be a black hole on D

    Undrafted: Kendrick Nunn says hello

    Unproven: That's like when people complain about jobs that require some experience coming out of college. How else do you suggest this man get experience without playing? It's the REGULAR SEASON NOT THE PLAYOFFS!

    Shot chucker: Eric Gordon says hello

    Black hole on D: Houston Rockets say hello

    Kendrick Nunn isn’t 5’9 brother.

    I’m sure if we had Kendrick Nunn he would be getting a lot of minutes.

    I like Clemons but dude is just way to small
    Imo to be a true regular rotation player on any team at any time in his career.

    He’s lucky he’s in the nba.

    If he can grab 8-10m from the nba before he’s pushed out the league that’s a win for him imo.

    He’s to small to be a real nba player imo.

    We are getting good looks. Once harden and gordon progress to their average % this team will break out on a run. 55 wins minimum

    Clemons can’t guard anyone. I’d like to see him get some tick... but you want to add him to this defense??

    I'm not saying to play him starter minutes... but he hasn't been in the game yet this season and we 5 games in. Can we not throw him in for 8 minutes to see if he can knock down a open 3 since Eric Gordon can't seem to do it? BTW i also haven't seen Gordon make any plays on defense either.

    Gordon’s bricking is tough to watch.

    No

    We have the worst defense in NBA.

    And coaching doesn’t exist.

    You do realize that the poor defense we'd get due to Clemons' height comes with a mediocre 3-point shot, right? I mean, he's a gunner who doesn't hesitate to pull the trigger, but even against pre-season lineups (including the Shanghai Sharks), he hit less than 33% of this 3s.

    You'd have an argument if Clemons could hit north of 40%, but at this point he doesn't offer enough instant offense to offset the instant offense boost he'd give to the opponents.

    Im not high on capela but gordon had 3 points in 30 minutes. At least capela can set screens and doesnt force our defense to double anyone over 6'5

    Gordon can defence, but 3 points are terrible recently. Celmons is short, only can shoot. Harden wants to shoot, he will not pass the ball when celmons is here
