    Well to be honest I'm not blaming the players I'm blaming the coach. The coach had a good plan the players executed that game plan and they got a 20 pt lead.

    And then the Mavs adjusted and Ime didn't know what to do. The Mavs started trapping and doubling Jalen and he cooled off. OTH they expected Brooks and Jalen to lock up Luka and Irving 1on1...bruh. Not fouling at the end is the cherry on top like why even let Mavs bring the ball half court? Just foul immediately and get the ball back it was so simple smh. Ime got flat outcoached by Kidd.

    As for Jabari specifically dude looked like a total bust last year. I don't care about his clutchness I'm just happy he improved so much in 1 yr and will likely improve even more given he is only 20 yrs old.

    agreed on ime overall and the play in question -- after bullock secured the rebound on the baseline my immediate thought was coach should call a TO right now so we can advance the ball to the frontcourt AND sub in the FT shooters. instead coach froze up and did nothing, then had to waste his last TO in order to advance the ball and kept jabari on the floor when he has a history of bricking clutch FT's smh

    also in the 3rd Q the camera panned to ime smiling and patting up the lead zebra, who had been fuccking us for 2 straight quarters..... smh

    Just watched.

    Can someone please tell me why in the world they did not immediately wrap the dude up on the inbound pass for a foul that would have wrapped up the game???!!!

    Also a late watcher of the game today...look, I know people are gonna get on Jabari for missing the free-throws, and that's fair, but I'm more disappointed in our VETERAN, CHAMPIONSHIP POINT GUARD who's famous for being steady for missing one of his.

    I wish we didn't collapse in OT, but it is what it is. I just want to see some good performances from our young fellas in the last few games

    It's quite fitting to have this season's longest losing streak following the longest winning streak.

    Thanks
    I grew up on that era of wrestling and for the life of me I don’t remember him slapping Andre. I do remember him turning face before he died

    Takes one to know one.
    If you don’t have a constructive response except an insult I’ve got one. You go outside and find the biggest rock and go kick.

    translation: Go kick rocks

    What is there to be constructive of?

    Your take had no meat in it? It was just a claim of a depressing future where every neutral non rocket NBA analysts believed rh complete opposite.

    You don't justify any claims to the comment I replied to. What do you want me to rebut?

    Your take is stupid. If you want to break down why you believe what you believe then I can be more precise in explaining why it's stupid.

    So elaborate and I'll explain to you why it's stupid.
