    Not a thread for flaming any of the players, but honest opinion, who is the worst passer on the team?

    I have my heart in my mouth when some of the guys are looking to pass the ball. They leave the ground out of control and try and find a pass along the way. Or they pass it to nobody. Or they seem to have an inability to pass it to an open man, preferring to find someone who is not only well guarded, but with the passing lane overplayed.

    3 choices - who is the worst passer the team?

    Danuel House is the only right answer

    The only answer to this is Jalen Green. Might be one of the worst passers I've ever seen. Hope he improves this aspect of his game.

    Can’t judge Wood, can’t recall him ever passing.

    I’d say overall Danuel House, mostly because he doesn’t do it often. But he has those two spectacular lobs. Seems like Ego has regressed in that regard.

    Could be Green, could be House. Both are trash.

    House is the only legitimate answer to this poll.

    Silas empowered him to be a playmaker and we have seen the absolute worst version of this player when he goes into facillitator mode.

    EGo is bad, House is a horror show.

    EGo is usually pretty good. The rare times he tries one, that is.

    While we're on the subject, does anybody remember that pass that Gordon did to someone at half court in the last few minutes of the Magic game? He was walking the ball up unguarded and decided to do a jump pass, and his teammate wasn't looking. It was one of the most bizarre passes I've ever seen. Why did he jump?

    Eric is good for passing the ball out of bounds last second when he can’t get shot off … or making a horrible cross court pass…

    House is decent at passing .. he shoots and dribbles like Ariza on crack

    I LOVE Tate, but with his skill level, some of the passes he executes are inexcusable and abominable. Tate will do 17 good things at the same time, then the very next play, throw a lob over the head of 70 inch vert KJ to Icarus by the sun. let's not get started on those inbound passes, lol

    You expect it from someone like House because he has knucklehead tendencies, but not Tate.

    Tate def not the worst passer, I just want an acknowledgment.

    Why is EG on here 3 times as a choice? Augustin is pretty reckless along with EG. Between those two.

    I mean why is house on here? If you are expecting him to make plays for anyone you should resign as GM/Head coach immediately

    As to the players who actually have the function of needing to occasionally pass during the game I think Wood is the worst, has no awareness when double triple teamed or who the open guy is at any point during the game. Needs to improve for sure but I think that comes after awhile of being a good scorer.

    Did you deliberately leave KPJ off the list?

    "Who is the worst...."

    Don't need more words to specify

    You know who it is
