    Im still not sold on the BS that we wanted this roster. I still honestly believe it was a tax dodge. I also think we have a lame duck coach because of a cheap ass owner. That being said Im still curious to see how it pans out. If we keep shooting like last night or even close to that we will be hard to beat.

    If Capela could shoot three's consistently, he'd still be on this team.

    I dont believe in the idea of small ball, but I do believe in pace and space. AD certainly isnt small, but he'd fit in nicely here. So would any other guy over 6'8" with good lateral quickness and the ability to knock down an open shot.

    Yes, while we go all the way to gear up our small ball system and have it tested even well-engineered by using up 28 games, our opps (most likely lal, lac, den) gonna use 28 games to quietly observe n study our system finding a way out to beat us or keeping their ace in the hole for stunning us in the clutch.
    MDA need to think about it. (cant be overly optimistic…again better got a plan b at his elbow)

    On this we can agree to agree: when MDA has the right players, he can succeed. I like our chances better now.

    When I say “adjustments”, I use the word as do many fans and announcers: this team is doing this or that, so the opposing team counters with That or This.

    MDA has a lot more interchangeable parts now. Tucker doesn’t have to play 52 out of 48 minutes, so to speak. Nor Harden. THAT will be a big step in the right direction: giving him players he trusts.

    if cc could shoot 3s…he could had signed a fat contract (20%-40%more than he got now), we could have given him a nickname 'great freak', we could have won a championship in 2017-2018 season:(:oops:

    very logical and well said assessment...

    where I would have a differing opinion is that I'm a 'fallback plan' kinda guy... lol.
    If somebody misses like 4 or 5 3s in a row - then drive in for a closer shot... take an easy bunny or 2 from shorter range, find your stroke and then stretch it back out... it aint 3 points but it keeps the scoreboard moving... and if you've had 10 bad beats in a row on the poker table... maybe its time you lie back a little bit, try to steal a few blinds, watch the flow a little closer and then be a little more selective in the hands you decide to chase... lol

    The dude made Donovan Mitchell look like an overrated rookie.
