    Then he shouldn't be playing. He's not doing the team any favors playing with how ineffective he has been for the most part since he's been back.

    It was very obvious last night that Luc is nowhere close to 100%. And that's a big problem against the Warriors.

    he's gotta get it together man. it's basically the nba finals. you gotta put it all on the line.

    if he's mentally fried, he's a liability out there. can't have guys that are simply not making shots vs. this team.

    How is him being able to dunk relevant?

    I think he meant to say, my shoulder can't take playing aggressively on Offense.

    I thought this was the case. He definitely shouldn’t have said it publicly though

    Nary a single word from all the Capela only fanboys about his 6 rebounds and being a total non-factor in the defensive paint. But you're going to pick on a player that's got an injured shoulder.

    I meant he is not like Shaq, Lebron or Griffin who live off dunks. That's not his main weapon.

    If he wants to dunk so badly, then dun do it. Wait till next season. I can't help him with that, he has to step up one way or the other.

    We should talk about his shooting, how he can shoot without using his shoulder.

    The thing is the article clearly states, it's all mental, he aint injured no longer, he helped down the Jazz in 5 games.

    Maybe the language was not appropriate but his point was Mbah has to contribute otherwise it will be tough.

    He also has to play better D.

    chris paul can't dunk either, he doesn't miss layups. your problem isn't your inability to dunk, it's your inability to make layups and that's been a problem all season.

    Ummmmmm

    We all know we need LMM healthy to have a chance to beat this team. But the bottom line is he is injured. You can say he's back and it's mental. You can say he helped us beat the Jazz. But we didn't need him at 100% to beat them. Wet need him at 100% to have a shot at these guys.

    His shoulder has been dislocated twice and he needs surgery. He's dinged. And that's that. Can't blame him for injuries sustained. It's part of the business.

    The blame for us losing to the Warriors will fall on the same person that is responsible for putting this team together that won 65 games.

    The fact is we are playing against a historically great team. Arguably the best team ever. A team that has mastered the rules of the modern day game, salary cap, etc. They're a great team and a great franchise. It's going to take a special team to beat them. And this year we don't have it.

    What we have, and it's as clear as it will ever be after last night's game, is a very, very good team with two superstars and a bunch of great role players. That means we're an excellent team.....probably better than everybody else in the Association....except the team we're playing now. They've got three legit superstars, a star, and a bunch of great role players. They have more basketball skills than we do......period. And their coaching is just as good as ours and their front office is just as good as ours.

    We'l have to figure out how to get more basketball skills out of a roster of 17 than they currently have. So LMM isn't really the problem here. The Warriors are the problem. And they haven't been solved. And aren't going to be this season.
