    It will make them closer and respect each other more because of this. I only have a problem with it if Jabari knocks JG4 out. That fire means they truly care and want to win and not tank. They started with a very tough first 3 games.

    I think KJ missed some defensive assignments as well but the Jazz were playing 3 bigs vs our 3 guard lineup.

    So you've never had one engineer that came in beating expectations? One that was able to show even tenured ones more efficient ways to do things? Judging by the team's reaction, including KPJ holding his arm and Jabari having to jerk it away, shows perhaps Bari was in the wrong. But it could also be pent up frustration from Bari where he kept his mouth shut the other times the team wasnt passing.

    Lets not forget Tari had to get on Nix, Mathews, and probably others too.

    I like it that Bari breaks up the cuddly atmosphere. He wants to win. I hope Bari and Alpi and Tari form a strong trio in that regard.

    Totally agree with you! Can't start challenging others until you do your part.

    Green has made year 4 strides in one off season. It's incredible.

    On Smith, he was playing with 5 fouls so he was being careful.

    Ice Cube wrote No Vaseline, dissed his boys then a few years later released Natural Born Killaz with Dr. Dre.

    Who scored on him? For that matter, who's really scored on him all year?

    Mind sharing the link to that 41% stat?

    Its taken jabari all of three games to realize that this team is coached terribly and plays selfish isoball and he's already tired of it. Good for him.

    This place is hilarious if it was KPJ getting into it with Green or Jabari most of yall would be wanting to cut him or trade him at the least.

    Now it's good for the team?

    I actually think this is healthy but it's amazing how things are when it's favorites involved.

    Did he make a statement? Did you glean more from the 2 second interaction than everyone else? I think you’re just making assumptions to fit your preconceived notions about Silas and this team.

    What’s Jalen’s role? The new Tyreke Evans?

    Said it in the game thread.

    If the disagreement was about basketball then this is nothing at all, only becomes a problem if it was personal which it seems like it wasn't.

    Besides Nix and Garuba are overweight and Kevin Porter is not Chris Paul

    If it was just basketball then in fact it would be a good thing.

    I thought this team was being turned into powder puff girls that just didn't care about winning games. This shows me they care at least.

    Better view of it. Love EG's reaction seeing the kids fighting....



    This team didn't play defense at all last season. Jabari bringing that intensity and wanting to lock down opposition.....step up young man and show this team that defense also wins games.

    I'm making assumptions.

    You are correct.

    It could have been about anything. I am choosing to believe it has something to do with the the style of play.
