    They got within 2 pts all while not shooting good from 3!

    You're upset because Sengun didnt play in the 4th, while I chose to look at a YOUNG team who didnt play well but still got within 2 pts in the 4th Qtr, on the road, on a back to back, against the NBA Champions and 4 games in 6 days.

    It's about the Rockets, not Sengun

    They got within 2 points then Jalen and KPJ subbed in and they sucked at defense like they do all season and they got blown out. With or without Sengun, KPJ/Jalen duo are the worst defensive backcourt by miles in the league. Feel free to pretend like they are not but facts are facts.

    So you think putting Sengun back in would've saved the day?

    Of course not. I never said that. I also never said Sengun is a good defender. What i'm saying is Jalen and KPJ's lack of effort and lack of defensive awareness hurt the team much more than Sengun's physical limitations on defense. You can replace Sengun with Rudy Gobert and this team will be still one of the worst defensive teams in the league.

    Gobert made Wolves a mediocre Defensive.

    He isn't that much of a factor.

    more and more I think we are intentionally tanking. The fact that we hired all these supposedly great defensive coaches and our best defenders Tari and Garuba are glued to the bench, no experimentation with KPJ, Sengun’s and KJM’s minutes way too low. If we were trying to win Tari or KJM would be starting and Sengun would be 30+ mins a night. when Tate gets back I am going to get so frustrated I’ll be cutting way back on my game watching and I have watched every game from Tennessee the last two years. F**k Silas.

    Blatant ad hominem!
    What part of "with or without Alpi" is so difficult to grasp for your pea brain?
    Your boys SUCK at defense is what he says.
    Your boys SUCK.
    They SUCK.

    Get it?

    English might not be the first language for most Sengun fans....Latin certainly isn't, so we can excuse their ignorance.

    I'm from the heart of Istanbul.
    Just trilingual.

    If I weren't such a strong empath, I could've taken this the wrong way. ;)

    The details of my life are quite inconsequential. Where do I begin?

    My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low-grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen-year-old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent, I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard, really. At the age of twelve, I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking, I suggest you try it.
