re: This team will never make the playoffs with Eric Gordon and Monty on board


I have posted the reasons time and time again. Whatevs, I am certainly not a fan but sincerly hope he shows great improvement or we can get some stellar prospects in a trade.

At least we have Anthony Davis.

He looks fat and uncoordinated. Not what I want to see from a guy getting paid like a star.

I'm hoping that these are just the lingering effects of him still being a little out of shape from the injury, and that's why he's been fading at the end of games

I hope next year, after he gets a full offseason of conditioning he can be a more consistent player

re: This team will never make the playoffs with Eric Gordon and Monty on board


I'll weigh in on these two issues:

EG - Him taking only 6 shots last night compared to Gravys 25 is inexcusable. EG should be shooting it 15-20 times a night imo,it shouldn't be on gravy to do all of the heavy lifting in the backcourt.

I also agree with Cap on EG not having consistency due to conditioning but i really want to see more aggresion from EG.

Monty - His in-game issues are becoming more glaring but i'm not ready for him to walk the plank yet. He needs a full season with better talent(Our bench is mostly D-league talent and we need a new SF) and a fully healthy gordon/davis.

There have definitely been some bright spots this year and i think that some of this irritation stems from us expected a bit much.

if the same issues monty has this year shows up next year with a healthy team and a couple of better players, do we make him walk the plank then or 2 more years?

I've been good with letting Monty get another shot next season, but the stupid plays at the end against the Lakers + last night's fast break TO have me wavering. Some of the shite he does is just inexcusable.

The Orlando and L.A. games were horrible, but even last night, the Hornets were up by 4 with a minute left...gotta be able to close out games like that (especially against bad teams).

He needs to show major improvement both with is in game coaching and win total or he's gone at the end of next season IMO

Then again, a lot of that depends on who we pick up during the offseason
