    I guess Harden's evil spell is still working on Ty and making him choke in the playoffs..

    damn you James Harden

    I guess you can't completely dismiss pairing Harden with a legit pg. Turns out Lawson lost his mojo.

    Another reason to trade Harden, his ability crosses dimensions

    What broke Lawson down in the end?

    Alcohol? Denver? Houston? Indy? Alcohol?

    This is what happens when he no longer has his magic juice.

    I haven't watched this series, but I would have thought they were staggering either PG, Monta, G. Hill with the second unit, at least for a couple of minutes.

    Is Lawson even really running the 2nd unit, or does he share that duty with Stuckey.

    If you use the word "Disaster", don't use net rating, that didn't tell me enough, if not anything at all. Is he not understanding plays? What's the problem?

    Anyone can beat a writer these days smh.

    That would also somewhat imply that his signing was supposed to put them over the top or something? Without a training camp?

    It's not like they lacked playmakers with Monta/PG/G. Hill/Young and Ellis, I didn't even think he would get major playing time.

    Whats "beat" are the exhaustive excuses for Ty Lawson they are verging on insane like the same excuses over and over for Corey Brewer, Dwight Howard, and, JBB.

    I've watched all 3 games of the series, and the Pacers do tend to get outscored by a large margin whenever Ty is on the court..the reason being Ty cannot defend at all if his life depended on it (and always has been), while his offensive game is also just not there, making him practically useless..

    When an alcoholic quits drinking he can forget how to do a lot of things. I speak from experience.

    I can't make a clear judgement in either case really. Not much information from the Indy writer. You gonna claim something, don't make the reader do all the damn work.

    I never really watched enough Houston games start to finish to judge Lawson here either, but I also didn't think it would work to begin with given how much Harden plays and handles the ball. It's not easy to just start playing off the ball.

    So he's still "garbage" to me from his Denver days. But in reality, I don't know much about what's going on with him, if there's even really a problem, or he just needs the right situation to thrive.

    Need to ask more questions, less identifying with favorite players for self-esteem, then maybe you guys won't get your panties in a bunch so easily.

    Wasted so many time starting this scrub. His bad mojo was big part of the collapse this season.
