    define worse?.

    tbh I’m not seeing it, yeah sure he’s not performing like he first was but I feel like people are bit ungrateful. He still gonna give you the 15-20 points with a few poor shooting nights. He’s still really the only people outside of harden and Westbrook who can actually make plays For himself.

    I mean he scored 50 points like it was nothing and has the ability to do that in any given night.

    so many teams would scoop up EG in a heartbeat

    the problem is our style, you shoot so many threes eventually your gonna hit a terrible slump. Such as we saw harden deal with recently.

    egs been inconsistent but we’re judging his past performances when he’s still contributing nicely for us.

    you can trade him to GSW for TE. Morey is the best cost saving artist. More profit.

    EGo is still great and gives us another playmaker. I don't have a problem keeping him through the duration of his contract. He's also the most expendable contract in search for a talent upgrade though. How much do we need his scoring when our offense has been blistering without him? Would another strong 3 and D wing with size be more valuable to us? I'm not sure.

    He will bounce back just in time for playoffs! Remember he was hurt early in the season and he looked MUCH better after the surgery.

    strong filling that’s going to happen this offseason even if we win the chip.

    New X-Factor might be Ben McLemore.



    In 21 games since Jan. 8, McLemore has averaged 10.9 points in 23.0 minutes per game. More impressively, he’s scored those points on 51.3% shooting and a blistering 46.4% clip from 3-point range. For the season overall, he now leads the Rockets in 3-point accuracy at 39.2%.

    I still give Mike D a ton of credit for being patient with Ben, even through his defensive lapses.

    If the player can shoot threes, Mike has patience. If not, no.

    Very simple. "You missed your last ten? The next ten will go in." (Dark Helmet "Spaceballs" voice:) "Keep firing, a**holes!"

    Is it? His play and health both mentally and physically has been suspect at best for the past couple of seasons. Every game he plays one wonders what are we getting tonight.
    Literally 50 or 5
    is he having fun yet
    will he play defense
    will he start or come off the bench.
    He would look so much better in another uniform; because his salary is desperately needed in the front court, IMO.
