    Tucker Gordon Demarcus Wall... a lot of vets

    4 all stars .. you dont have to make it .. its a bs competition ...whats important youre capable of playing like one..

    heat didnt have 4 allstars last year neither but they played like it and almost won it were it not for the injuries

    Damn if the rockets don’t start the year with 60% of the team out and didn’t start Nwaba, The Rockets could be in the 4th or 5th seed even with Fatman getting traded.

    While I am still advocating for the tank....I will say

    Mason Jones continues to be cool.

    He is definitely from the mark jackson Pablo prigioni school of ball. That dude has a loooong career in front of him. He will play just as fast at 36 as his rookie year.

    Other than the Bulls game, where they also hit a lot of tough shots, D has been a lot better since Fat Harden has been gone.

    Amazing what this team can do when it doesnt have to compensate for:

    Oladipo shooting 20+ times at a low FG%
    Boogie looking like he's done
    Eric Gordon going 1-8 from 3-point range

    I get we're not going to get this type of output every night, but if we can get a Gordon that can consistently shoot 2-5 or 3-7 from 3 and mix it up driving to the hoop, an Oladipo that can shoot 40% or higher FG%, and a Boogie who can limit his turnovers, get rebounds, and not go 2 for 10 or more from the field, it becomes much easier to win games.

    Tucker is probably not going to be here at the deadline, I dont know about Oladipo either.

    They arent going to make it because they are not all star level.

    Jimmy Butler and Bam were all stars.

    Clutchfans is super bi polar. Can’t wait until we lose to the Pelicans by 5 and everyone wants to cut Cousins. Seriously though, fun game but hold off on giving the whole roster the super max.

    Serious fun tonight. We made the Mavs look silly. Heck, our end of the bench outplayed their end of the bench. Boogie gets the game ball with an incredible performance. I hope he has a lot more of those in him. Gordon with his best game in a long time. Jones was unreal. Heck, a lot of the young guys were unconscious. Crazy good game!

    Kenyon Martin Jr. maybe potential backup small ball center in the future? I don't have a lot of faith from him as a shooter, but he protects the rim and goes up for alley oops like a 5 would anyway. Plus he runs the floor like a forward, so he could create some mismatches for the other team on defense.

    I wonder if Silas will start Gordon over Oladipo next game? I think EG deserves it after how he’s played this season. He has stepped up big! It would also allow Dipo to play his game off the bench and not worry too much about fitting in.
