    Ariza wanted a pay check and he isn’t playing that great either. What we needed from him was his leadership and he was the glue guy.
    Hope he comes back though

    Luc on the other had didn’t get sign because Cp3 maybe Morey too but I believe Cp3 was the main person that wanted us to sign his friend Melo. Since we had to wait till he was bought out or traded and then bought out by Atlanta we lost a chance at trying to sign other players and we couldn’t sign Luc because we wanted to give Melo a bit more to kee his rights (I think ). And Luc isn’t playing that great.

    Also we traded Ryan and we got a couple of pieces that didn’t fit or aren’t great. So it was either keep Anderson and keep letting him sulk on the bench or trade him. He isn’t playing in Phoenix anymore. So at least this trade was okay. And we could probably trade the pieces we got easier than trading Ryan’s.

    The only one that we sign that has been very mediocre in the court has been MCW. Hartenstein shouldn’t be Capela ‘s back up but he is improving slowly. Ennis isn’t that bad, he does foul a lot but he is average.

    Gordon has been hurting us more lately than anyone. Shooting terribly and bricking most of his 3s. We should have either trade him or not even try to trade for Jimmy because now we have another Anderson waiting to happen. To me it seems The rumors have been getting into his head and now he thinks he is just a tradable piece.
    This I do blame Morey but also Gordon. He just just focus on the court trades happen that’s part of the game.

    Another thing I do blame Morey is the belief that Capela doesn’t need a back up. Or always getting terrible or macerate back ups. Nene was good when he came back even during the seasons when we had Dwight we had bad back ups. We needed someone like Tyson chandler. He has helped the lakers even if he is old. We need someone who is better defensively in The paint.
    Capela is okay but he has still a lot of bad habits.

    So I don’t fully blame Morey. I blame Tillman more than Morey and I blame it more on Carmelo’s drama not unfolding sooner.

    Truth is we do need more players we been saying it since game one or since the beginning of this season. That’s is why we needed to trade for Butler also since it did more damage with all the rumors, it was just a distraction.

    I cant understand why there are so many unplayable guys on the roster... Even in 2015 we had guys like Brewer, Smith, Jones, Terry, Dorsey, and Donuts. Yeah, most of them were below average or washed up but at least they could stay on the floor.

    MCW, Zhou, Chriss, and Anthony dont see the floor at all. And they won't ever for the rest of the season. FOUR GUYS WE CANT PLAY.

    Knight and Nene are "hurt". 2 guys we can't play.

    JAMES ENNIS III
    GARY CLARK
    ISAIAH HARTENSTEIN
    GERALD GREEN

    really?? These are the people we gotta rely on? Because be honest. Gordon is just a starter that comes off the bench. But those 4 guys are our real bench mob. What the actual ****?

    Now Daryl Morey has to Christmas shop on the 28th of December instead of black Friday weekend like most competent shoppers do.

    Imagine trying to get rotation players in December lol. Traded Ryan Anderson for Brandon Knight who is injured and probably won't ever play. .. but hey at least he makes less than Ryno right? Smh ‍♂️

    This season is probably lost unless the Warriors, Bucks, and Raptors suffer some misery in the playoffs like we always do. A year of CP3's aging career wasted. This blows.

    And who the **** is danul house??????

    Revisionist history...

    In 2015, all those players were beyond horrible. We all wanted them off the floor.

    Same thing this year. The team sucks. We're headed for the 8 seed.

    never understood the MCW signing...he brings nothing to the table

    Why?

    to go from almost winning a title to this current squad after just 1 offseason is so disappointing, and the future does not look bright at all either

    And deep down, you know @Carl Herrera is right about Tillman.

    "but but but Daryl's hands were tied!"

    My friend ... Morey is being paid like a brilliant guy, he has to prove it or leave. As simple as that.

    washington signed jeff green to a vet minimum contract and the guy made 5-6 shots tonight playing key minutes with rebs, assists, defense. mcw cam in for 2min and was a -7 with brainless blunder after brainless blunder. morey is a numbers cruncher who simply doesn't know basketball.

    As soon as Morey’s done with the last of the leftovers, he’ll get right on this . . .

    People need to calm down. We are very lucky to have Daryl Morey. He is the best GM in basketball. A few lost games do not change that.

    Our main bench guys tonight were

    House a scrub who the suns of all teams chose not to retain and signed last night from the G league

    Clark : undrafted rookie

    Isiah : 20 year old late round second pick

    Let that sink in! That is how bad our bench is right now and you add Chrissand MCW to finish off the platter then no wonder we have the lowest productive bench in the league. Poor Eric and Harden had to score a combined 90 points to keep this a ball game

    Morey's a great gm that's always aggressive and he's never satisfied, which is a huge factor for why we've gone to 6 straight playoffs. That being said... he struck out big this season with the roster he put together, needs to fix it asap.

    It's Melo's fault.

    Not long.

    Morey is dialing up a trade right now for Jordan Hamilton, Kevin McDaniels Jr. & Terrence Williams; 1st round pick to opposing team.

    Morey is a great GM, but this past offseason was terrible. Terrible tradeoff losing Ariza, Moute for Melo, MCW, Ennis

    We need Lucas as the lead. Someone that will develop younger talent and understand the 2 all stars. Sorry but somethings got to give.
