    Relax people. EG always brings it on both ends when it matters.

    Every win right now is gravy, because we are buying more time to get in shape and on track. EG will be fine.

    Exactly. Disappointing that his start has been what it is, but we're 6-3 with our x-factor playing like crap. I choose to look at this as a positive and when he gets right, watch out.

    One adjustment that he should make is to stop complaining to the refs about not calling fouls. It seems to effect his confidence.

    We can’t trade him this season, but even if we could, nobody is going to be interested in an older 6th man on a huge contract. Any return we’d get wouldn’t make us better.

    Just have to hope EG gets going.

    Agree completely. You can't play him and Harden together because that's literally a gift to the offensive team.

    He isn't a huge contract lmao you will find it hard to find a career 16.6 scorer making just 18M a year in today's NBA.

    Even if you could trade him this season you shouldn't as that would be a mistake.

    You know he doesn't get the calls in his favor like Harden does, or CP3, or Westbrook, or many of the "superstars" he guards. That would get under my skin too.

    He should turn it down a bit though. He acts like he's just received news that his family was killed in a plane crash.

    EG just needs to find his shot …. he's a negative if he isn't shooting ~.350 or better.


    Part of the problem with this roster is that it was built around beating the Warriors …. and they are no more.

    The teams you have to beat now are much different - bigger front courts and better wings.


    This team is so one dimensional in terms of size …. all they can do is go small. Despite carrying 6 guys who can play the 5 on the roster , they don't really have the option to go big.

    The roster pretty much kicked everyone's ass except for the warriors.

    They often struggled against bigger frontcourts …. but were able to beat most teams because of their offensive efficiency.

    Looks trim. Good sign. A healthy EG is our key to success.
