    Calvin Murphy cracks me up. Dancing and all happy after the game, looking Pretty in Pink tonight. Gotta love him. Never leave us Calvin. You are a gem.

    4 points in 29 minutes for joe johnson in a game like that is alarming.

    So this pretty much ends all the Joe Johnson positivity that some had or is he really bored out there, waiting to turn it on in the playoffs?

    Also for all that talk of MDA’s system, it’s still all about our stars. This game should’ve been a win even with just PJ, Green, Joe and Black as regulars if his system was so “genius”.

    It’s alarming that how bad the bench guys are.

    Chee horrendously bad

    Johnson just retire already.

    Onaku looks bad


    Hunter started bad but improved as the game went on.

    Every time someone mentions D'Antoni having some sort of magic system, just remember that in 2015-16, Brett Brown and D'Antoni led 76ers to 10 wins. Their team was 29th in PPG and last in OffRtg. You only go as far as the talent on your team can take you.

    Sure talent matters, but I don’t get how even unbiased / biased media are praising MDA so much now. Of course he’s doing great, but they always talk about the perfect system and he’s an offensive genius, rather than his approach and player management in general which is very good. Players love him, like Rudy T and Adelman.

    Guess it’s to take away from Harden and CP3, though he did take that Suns team and did something rarely done before but those teams were stacked with talent.

    I just watched the highlights. Did Willie Cauley-Stein get a tattoo on the top of his forehead to improve his hairline?

    You aren't wrong, but it would be a lot more alarming if I wasn't used to him blowing every opportunity we have given him. The only thing he has shown is the ability to play some good team defense, bring the ball up the court sometimes, and play some bully ball (just back down his defender in an iso from the three point pretty much all the way to the hoop which should be an easy basket but he still misses those.) Sigh...

    Joeee Chee with 4 blocks. It's a start. 1 summer of working on his shot and we'll see what he can do next season.

    Nothing to be alarmed about, the guy is simply isn't who he is anymore, not expecting any contribution from him in the playoffs.

    I really dislike this version of him, he explodes for 1 game perhaps, and people starting to have their hopes up again, just no.

    The guy is just old, probably the only contribution he can provide is on the defensive side when we play small and has to guard PF but that's about it

    LOL. Right.
    Sac saves it all on salaries. They can't get any top players to come there
    so why not give away a few thousand in goodies to draw some fans?

    I was surprised how bad of a ball handler JJ is.
    He was running the point several times and kept having the ball knocked away or out of bounds quite a bit.
    Couldn't seem to keep control
