    Do you bring back Wall by Sunday?

    EG is not a PG and I know it maybe a little early but with games coming up against the Nets, Bucks and with a eight of nine road trip to follow, this could be the difference in the season.

    No because once you put him in you can’t take him out

    No, man.. He’s out of shape, missed training camp, hasn’t played in ages. It’ll be painful.

    Bring him back and let KPJ and JG rest... then when KPJ is truly ready to play... Wall should have either built up his trade value or re-injured something.

    Wall will not be ready by Sunday.
    They haven’t even reached an agreement for a return. (Even though there’s no decision to be made. He’s coming off the bench or well continue not playing/stay home.)
    And again, Wall will not be ready by Sunday.

    Difference in the season? LOL No.
    Then we’ll pull the tank back out of the garage and the tank rolls on.

    They went from 1-16 (worst in the league) to 6-16 (4th worst in the league; still tied for last in the West).
    Nothing has really changed. Certainly not “Let’s rush John Wall back! Let’s insert John Wall into the starting lineup!”
    John Wall is a non-factor. Like non.

    If we want a mid 1st round pick, play Wall, he will help us win some games. If we wanna suck and let rooks play, hold him out.

    I honestly can't believe Porter is out with a bruise on his thigh.....that seems trivial....but hey......I prefer old school.

    I agree with u homie. Actually I'll take it a step further, I do not believe the bruise story. I think there is more but they are "protecting" kpj in the media from announcing bad news to protect his fragile ego

    Also, looks like Keith Jones dropped the ball AGAIN for the the 1000th by bringing a guy back to early . Hate these rockets trainers , always have. They seem to behind the 8 ball for years regarding new technology and medical advances to help the body. But what do I know? I'm a high school dropout.

    He should play. He might get his trade value up.

    We need to take a lot of pressure off EG so he won’t get hurt before trade deadline. He’s doing too much right now. Feels like a ticking timebomb at this usage before another injury and we just hope it goes off after he’s traded.

    KPJ is getting it....and his Assist to Turnovers has been over 2-1 most games now......huge progress.

    Only 10 turnovers total last night.

    But Gordon is not really a good PG, especially when pressured.

    He’ll also dominate the ball and stunt the development of the young guys. The passing has been so good the last few games. I don’t want to watch John Wall iso-ball.

    This.

    I mean if the idea is to win games (I know it might not be, just speaking theoretical here) then you keep Wall far away from the team. They are rolling right now, playing as a team, moving the ball, building confidence.

    The last thing you want to do is add a guy that doesn't even want to be here to the lineup. He's going to play completely for himself and the team will have to adjust to him.
