    Fred's 16 assists made up for his poor shot selection. he takes some of the worst shots inside the arc.

    Jalen is turning himself into a role player. I'm just not sure what role he's trying to be

    i want rookie Jalen coached by IME.

    rookie Jalen wouldn't need Ime to tell him who to hate. yall remember when Jalen would bark at Cade for no reason?

    he would get up for games because he wanted the lights

    when was the last time he did that? That Atlanta game?

    Swag Jalen was freaking electric then Silas put him in the corner and he thought he was the one that was failing..

    im telling you SILAS is the worst thing to happen to the core kids.

    I BLAME SILAS

    im sick

    ain’t no way Stone went into this season with Jock Landale as the backup C…this is 1 of the biggest catfish stories in recent history

    dude looks like he’d average 5 points 4 boards in 25 minutes in the NCAA Div ll

    And Brooks is being a superstar.

    What an inverse world.

    Jalen gonna be 50 going, “if only Silas wasn’t my coach!!!” What a loser mentality. It’s all there right in front of him…do or do not.

    No handle.
    No shooting.
    No basketball IQ.

    No formula works.

    It took Austin Reeves shooting way beyond 3 pt line and the other one stepback 3 from James Harden.

    It's always sad to lose games but it's not that bad. If all the Rox losses are like these they won't have many losses.

    I agree. I worded it poorly. You’re right, I mostly meant “consistently”. They have the ability. They just don’t know how to do it consistently.

    Alpi is +21, but we lost game by 1

    We desperately need back up center. I suggest O.F.Yurtseven. (Good rebounder, rim protecter, and is a teammate in Turkey National Team with Alpi)

    It sucks that we didn’t get out on top. I love this team though. Green and Bari is what’s holding us back. If they have OK games it’s enough for the Rox to win. It’s a better overall team then what was expected. Alpi is that good, yeah.

    Tomorrow they have another chance, hopefuly the young guys show improvements on offense.

    “Good” night y’all :eek:

    Weird how upset people are over a loss. Kinda nice to hear again since OKC will most likely take our pick, but I'm still in the "whatever, we played hard" phase.

    He can absolutely contribute, but if you’re relying on Brooks to be your other star you’re f*cked. If only there was someone to take that role.

    It's taking superstar performances to beat us. I can live with the losses when they're hard fought.

    Lebron really is a science project at this point. He's in such good shape and is a basketball computer. I think he could play another decade given reasonable health.
