    6 point lead turned into a 6 point deficit. Mission accomplished.

    He is honestly the opposite of this when playing for Australia. Hustles like a madman, gets onto every loose ball, blocks shots, hits 3s... we need to get him a green and gold jersey ASAP

    If all it takes is one bad coach to ruin you then maybe you never had it in the first place?

    I’d argue Sengun was treated worse by Silas and he’s playing better than ever.

    Maybe Jalen just isn’t that guy.

    I’ve watched nearly every game…I’ve commented in here before that I’ve seen more effort from him. I saw him run from helping on defense tonite down the stretch. Playing defense is more than just trying to check your man.

    Precisely and it created a situation that you cannot lose FVV and DB to injuries, but injuries happen.

    You don't want to be addicted to having them around at all times.

    The flip is…we don’t have enough talent to win without them. So there’s that. Sengun is really really good. Not great but very good. Aside from that, there isn’t enough talent to win, regardless of who is coach.

    Why would you think he would get a max extention at this point? To me that is so not a possibility I am confused as to why it's even brought up?

    The coach is giving the "green" light to Fred and Brooks to take all the shots. The ball movement died as the game went on.

    Need Green to be much better than this. Whenever he's defending a shot, it's an automatic make. And whenever he shoots it or tries to drive it, it's either a miss or TO. I'm not confident in him at all. There's no wiggle in his movements, and on his drives he looks like Westbrook (and not the OKC one). Left hand is like it's made of stone, no rotation on the ball as he releases it. What good does his athleticism do when he doesn't know how to use it?

    Yeah...Ime just said stay in front of your man....created a lane to the basdket. However, Brooks played great.....wouldn't have had a chance to win if not for him. NOBODY gets 'em all right.

    We are playing a championship contender at full strength at home in a game the refs gave them three times as many free throws and we lost by one. If this is not the definition of "the process" that should be trusted, I don't know what is. It isn't excuses, it is trying to appreciate progress.

    Jalen Green fans are the new LOFs. No point arguing with them because they'll see Green have 1 good game every 4 games and think he's the next Kobe.
