    To win a championship. Did you not see the potential in the OKC game without Clint and Keef?

    Can understand the concern with him clanking open looks. Given we got no choice but to work with we got, I'll remain hesitantly optimistic that he'll find his shot with consistent open looks provided by CP3 and Harden. We already know he's got championship experience which counts for something as well.

    Funny. After the first game Austin Rivers played with the Rockets, lot of people suddenly became Rivers only fans. Now he has come back down to earth, everybody knows why he's a journeyman guy except when he played for his dad.

    Shumpert has played only one game. Calm down.

    i think a lot like w/ ariza, he'll get hot some games and miss just about everything in others. it's like our team curse to never have any consistent knockdown shooters

    Shumpert has been a 36% 3 point shooter the last 2 years how is that shooting bricks?

    I hope not to be a small forward. I’ve seen how that movie ends vs the Warriors w/Durant (Irving/JR Smith/Shumpert)......Not Well. (4-1 Warriors)

    And Irving is bigger than CP3 if we are running a CP3/Harden/Shumpert lineup. Rivers/EGordon a little bigger but
    their offense has kind of bottomed out lately. Gordon might get hot by playoff time.....but Irving played
    well back then and they still lost easily. Now add Cousins to the mix.

    He bought the team in 2017, so I'm pretty sure it was just a jersey symbolizing that.

    Another 3 and D player to replace an underperforming Ennis and unsigned House. Consolation prize after striking out on trades with Memphis, Miami, and Boston. Deemed not worth going over the luxury tax for however. 2 players to be added from the buyout market around the 21st instead.

    no he has shot 36% on 3's the last out of 4 years.

    why are you lying to prove a point.

    he is a career 34% shooter.
