    The Wizards are 12-2 since Thornton got strapped to the bench with 14 consecutive DNP-CDs...zero minutes, not even garbage time.

    Yeah but James Harden was envious of Marcus Thronton putting up shots and was the reason Marcus Thornton left the Rockets because James didn't want him

    Seems to be a lack of sneaky athletes on this team.

    Where are all the selfish, white women at.

    Larry Bird used to call Kevin McHale a black hole.

    I could be persuaded to put the Minneapolis version of Kevin Love on the list, especially those rebounding numbers created by letting his man shoot (vs contesting) and then blocking him out.

    There are also Centers (Kantar??) and pure shooters out there whose college-self still wants to launch it every time they get the ball, and never play defense. People will say, but if they do it at X rate, who cares. Well, the reply to that is Carmelo has good to great efficiency numbers, too, and so does Cousins. The point is: are they ball-movement killers or chemistry killers for selfish reasons.

    Begs the question: Why is Wiltjer getting no burn, again? :D

    Did I do it right?

    Reggie Jackson
    Derozan
    Shabazz
    Carmelo
    Whiteside.

    If they exchanged more than 3 passes at any time I would be shocked.

    Who is Cousins supposed to pass to? He's on a team full of bricklayers.

    i suspect that's largely because of his leisurely stroll across halfcourt almost every halfcourt possession. i'm always nervous he's gonna get called for 8sec :D

    Couple of them became stars because of the same selfish thinking.

    I feel like Kobe should be there.

    Also, Greg Poppovich should coach them. We'll see who lasts longer, their playing style or Pop's arteries.

    Hezonja anyone?

    What kind of Top 5 pick gets two dozen DNP-CDs (last 4 in a row) unless they can't play well with others. You at least showcase him. It's like they are hiding some family secret before the trade deadline.

    Should have traded him for Ibaka rather than Sabonis.

    I couldn't understand why my mind keeps telling me that Westbrook is a selfish player when his stats would indicate otherwise, and then I realized what was in the back of my mind making me feel that way. His all star appearances. It's like the guy didn't get the memo that it's an exhibition that is designed to let everyone shine. Every time he touches the ball he shoots it. Just seems a guy that would chase stats in an all star game has to be a little bit selfish.
