    Does that mean that Russ needs to not have the ball and focus on rebounding and playing D?

    How do you know that was directed at James? Seemed like a pretty generic criticism of the team as a whole?

    Russ is the last person on this team who should be calling anyone out.

    Long shot...but if we were to comeback and win the series Russ needs to be the ball handler and Harden needs to play off ball so the Lakers can’t just load up on him.

    Not gonna happen. This team doesn't make offensive adjustments. Dantoni is even proud of that and states that to the media.

    Westbrook has proven to be turnover machine in this series. There's no way I would make that adjustment. Hell, I'd rather have Gordon and Austin Rivers be primary ball handlers over Westbrook.

    Westbrook should only handle the ball when he has break away layups or in postups when the matchup is favorable. Otherwise he's proven he can make off the ball cuts for easy baskets. That's how he can be most effective offensively with his limitations right now.

    Harden will say “I know exactly what we need to do” then Morey will trade Westbrook. Rinse repeat.

    not sure why you're gonna have the guy with terrible handles and decision making be a ball handler. and this in no way causes the lakers not to load up on harden still. it makes it easier for them because the ball isn't in his hands anymore

    Yeah, i doubt Russ was directing it at anyone in particular. Might even be at himself. He knows he can play better and he'll try to, he just has to stick to his game.

    Russ isn't the type to call out guys or air **** out in public. Everyone that plays with Russ loves the guy to death. I'm guessing he's saying HE needs to stop shooting long jumpers and go back to what was working for us before the shut down.

    Screw him.

    He should get 100% and get himself traded.

    He is not a bad dude but as a player not worth 40 mill.

    Harden should also consider going ring chasing.
