    Our shooting would be abysmal if this guy wasn't on the team. He fits our system flawlessly.

    We are in trouble if we don't bring him back next year.

    Our defense and rebound is horrid. I don't know you can fix that with Small ball.

    You don't.

    Trade EG after the season for a good forward.

    And, yes....Ben is an ideal fit here.

    He sucks! He hits one three but gives up 10. There is no big man now to help him when his man just pisses right through him. One of the most clueless players ever and there is a reason why he has not made it.

    It was a weird game for him, great win but this 8 man rotation is going to get taxed quickly.

    That was an Allstar game performance overall from everyone incl. opponent.

    Ben McLemore is great for us, as long as it’s in a small role. 15 minutes max even if he’s hot.

    We don't win this game tonight without McLemore's shooting.

    His defense is bad but it isn't any worse than his teammates in the first 3 quarters. Those 3's in the fourth quarter kept us in it.

    At shooting.

    Unfortunately, not on defense. It's not a coincidence the team started getting more stops after he fouled out. I saw him get cooked by f*cking Trey Burke off the dribble for an AND-1. That sh*t isn't acceptable.

    Respect the shooting stroke though.

    Trey Burke killed everyone guarding him tonight. Night of his life.

    Usually he makes shot on one end and then gives up easy one/stupid foul for And1/bad rotation on the other. He is here in rotation just because Gerald isnt

    The thing is no one guarded him. Cant expect NBA level guard not to make open shots
