re: Pels vs. Clippers | Game Thread - corndeaux
[quote]when the pels ran their offense and hit their shots it was close and when they didn't it got away[/quote] yup. this is the "make or miss league" stuff. i do think they break offense way too easily at times tho. and some of that is on lineups and, obviously, the opponent [quote]I don't t...

re: I'm done with Terrence Jones - corndeaux
not sure why it as to be black/white...from the OP on down. Jones was a smart bet. he has paid off with his play. good for him and the team Jones is a flawed player (jumper, defense). he is likely in his ideal role- off the bench scorer. both are true. that the Pels play him so much becaus...

[quote]If they playoffs aren't made this year Dell and Gentry must be fired.[/quote] this assumes faith in the corner offices that they have not earned. i could see them firing Gentry just for PR/keep the heat off their awful moves. team option 4th year means only 1.5 years of $$ to eat. but ...

re: Pels vs. Clippers | Game Thread - corndeaux
yeah. Frazier/Holiday is just weird. i get that they like that combo and it has been successful, but you can't run lineups w/o Holiday, Frazier, or Davis like they have been. its like what Monty used to do rolling Jimmer/Rivers units out there. i do wonder if Holiday is still on a minutes restric...

[quote]I do think Buddy will find his shot but we drafted him on the basis the he would be able to contribute right away.[/quote] i agree. and it's crazy that the team sold and/or believed that. it is a very, very rare rookie who can be a positive contributor [quote]The worst part about what ...

re: Pels vs. Clippers | Game Thread - corndeaux
im happy you thought all those things about the team, but you're hardly a lone voice in the wilderness. many, many observers pointed out that they were overly reliant on Davis/Holiday. that they were short on creators and shooting. that this roster was in transition and this year was a bridge yea...

re: Small Sample Size Theater: Pels playing really well since Holiday's return - corndeaux
it means it's one night in a long regular season. the clips are very, very good. the cavs are very, very good. the clips will be ending a 10 day road trip tomorrow night on a btb. i wouldnt be too shocked if they come out lethargic. also would not be surprised at all if they beat the Pels soundl...

re: Small Sample Size Theater: Pels playing really well since Holiday's return - corndeaux
[quote]but the 0-8 start will doom them in a tight race for 7/8[/quote] probably, but, barring Davis/Holiday injury, they should be competing for a spot. don't think LAL or PDX are running away from anyone. [quote]I feel like we are going to learn a lot about the ultimate direction of this ...

re: Will Evans really bring Davis down? Analysis - corndeaux
right on both counts. plus everyone seems to have forgotten how much Evans bitched about coming off the bench 3 years ago. and now it is a contract year....need numbers to get paid if he's healthy and willing to sacrifice some of his game, he can be a great addition. not much evidence througho...

re: Pels vs. Lakers | Game Thread - corndeaux
that's on ownership and, to a lesser extent, fans. if he's on the hot seat for losing games (or every other thread after a loss is "Fire Gentry") he is not incentivized to risk wins or play for three years down the line. it would be great if they could win games and give Hield 20 meh mpg. this te...

re: Pels vs. Lakers | Game Thread - corndeaux
yup. not sure why you wouldn't have one of Frazier/Holiday on the court at all times. get that that duo has been good together, but they can stagger better. especially v lakers team that has been playing "big" much of the game...

re: Brandon Knight on the trade block? - corndeaux
that's fair. i'm less bullish, but it's possible there's still a jump for him. the trade to PHX and injuries have derailed him. i wouldn't be upset at giving up Evans/Ajinca for Knight. still a good deal for the Pels. especially if they aren't sure about paying Holiday or if he even wants to st...

re: Brandon Knight on the trade block? - corndeaux
[quote] owner with a reputation for being cheap. [/quote] they are already $14M below the cap (and $2M below the floor). and their future cap sheet is pretty clean, outside of Chandler's deal. all their core guys are either locked into reasonable new cap deals or on rookie contracts that don'...

re: Jrue and Tyreke will come off the bench when he returns - corndeaux
[quote]if Davis misses any time, it seems nonsensical to expect that lineup to produce with Jones consistently[/quote] absolutely. though I do think Holiday should start when they think he's ready. but try to pull him at the 6 minute TO to stagger him and Davis some. and get Frazier/Davis some ti...

re: I guess Buddy is out of the rotation for the time being - corndeaux
i dunno. they gave Hield a lot of leeway the first 10 games. they let him create, they let him shoot. he made bad mistakes, missed shots, and still got consistent run. i have read criticism for not defining his role, for giving him too much responsibility. i have also read criticism that they are re...

re: Omar Asik and E'Twuan Moore - corndeaux
[quote]There is serious perception bias when it comes to Asik[/quote] i can admit that i was wrong. he has shown much more than i thought he still had. still have doubts, but i do like how they are deploying him- small spurts v big lineups. also, i wouldn't read a ton into his Net Rating. he'...

re: Odds that we keep Jones? - corndeaux
right. Demps is the elephant in the room. most Pels fan, justifiably, want Demps out. that looks unlikely. so the plan is to give him more $$ and trust him to make good decisions? fool me once......

re: Odds that we keep Jones? - corndeaux
[quote] Frazier + Asik for an expiring[/quote] that would be a bad trade. and both of those guys are fungible pieces. moving them to create cap space is a bad move for this team. the Pels are not players in FA. putting eggs into that basket is fools' gold. but's let play this through-...
