re: Lonzo Ball is now at 40% from 3. Check in here to eat crow. I am. - lovepurplelivegold14
I actually think Lonzo will continue to grow in this 3&D role. This is his first year in that role, so him struggling early should've been expected. Going forwards the ball will be in Ingram's and Zion's hands. So the fact that Lonzo can't drive won't be as big as Zion/Ingram grow as playmakers/ sla...

re: Hart 9 rebounds in 29 minutes - lovepurplelivegold14
Now when ya'll complain about Adams, remember this. 58% fg and 56% from 3. We are in dire need of defensive players. Not one of our young players defensive minded. Things have to change....

re: Pels v Mavs: get right - lovepurplelivegold14
Pels have won 4 of 5. They were coming off a b2b against a Chicago team that was in a shooting slump. Unfortunately, the Bulls broke out and couldn't miss. Broke records. It's the NBA. All professionals. But good teams bounce back. Good teams learn from mistakes and go out and win. Let's come ou...

re: Houston had both of their games postponed for next week - lovepurplelivegold14
If these teams were to play, it would probably be in Houston. UH had two home games postponed, and doubt they'd want to travel. Houston had a postponement earlier this year and were close to scheduling a neutral game against Gonzaga, but talks fell. Houston will probably look at UT or Baylor bef...

re: Kira vs NAW - lovepurplelivegold14
Kira and NAW should be our bench backcourt for a while. Let's be real, Kira is not ready to start no matter how much some on here love him. He's not strong enough yet and needs time to polish. I think a Monte Morris role for him early is excellent. Both players have lapses on the defensive end which...

re: I’m torn on lonzo now - lovepurplelivegold14
We've had an unfair assessment of Lonzo Ball. He's been a lead point guard his entire life, and in a contract year with no offseason and a new coach, we completely change his role. People went from hoping Lonzo make a three, to shunning him if he only made one. It's very understanding that i...

re: Pels v Grizzlies: Zion vs Ja, and yes Zion is better than Ja - lovepurplelivegold14
IMO there's been two big games that have really change the direction of our team: Both Pacers games. In the first game we had a big lead late, and unfortunately lost. It killed all momentum and the team chemistry we were trying to build, was destroyed. We go on to lose a bunch of games. Yesterda...

re: If Beal isn't on our timeline, who will be? - lovepurplelivegold14
The player I'd love to get is Malcolm Brogdon. He's 28 so around the age of Adams. He's a primary ball handler, that can also play off ball. He's an excellent defender with size (6'5). And he's a 50-40-90 type player. An excellent shooter. He makes around 20 mil a year. IMO Brogdon is a very und...

re: Isn't it funny? - lovepurplelivegold14
You can't compare the teams because of one thing: expectations. Zion was being compared to Lebron James and from the moment he was drafted, we have been "on the clock" to put a good team around him or he will leave. Remember the Pels had a whole new team, a new GM, and now a new coach. Before...

re: JJ and Lonzo for Buddy Hield? - lovepurplelivegold14
I really like the idea of Buddy but that contract is hard to swallow. I brought up the idea of Fournier and Barton because both players are expiring so if it doesn't work we will still have some flexibility. Rather than having 20 mil+ and three more years of Buddy. But I think Buddy needs a new situ...

re: JJ and Lonzo for Buddy Hield? - lovepurplelivegold14
If we trade for Buddy it leaves us almost no financial flexibility. I think it's a high chance we trade Lonzo to the Magic for Fournier or to the Nuggets for Barton, two expiring deals ...

re: Game Thread: Pels at Oxymorons, Tuesday edition. - lovepurplelivegold14
I look back to this, if we won the games we were supposed to against the Pacers, OKC, and the Hornets, we'd be fine. No one expects us to beat then Clippers, Lakers, and Jazz. We're 5-9, if we won the games we should've we'd be 8-6 with a completely different outlook. We need to win the games we are...

re: If Zion is working with Vinson why is everything at the rim? - lovepurplelivegold14
All our problems stem from one thing: three point shooting. We can't shoot threes and can't stop teams from making them. It is very unfair to tell our young player (20!) to develop his game faster because we failed to put a team that fits around him. who are the plus shooters on this team? JJ lo...

re: Pels vs Clippers Game Thread: LOL Edition - lovepurplelivegold14
Hill is 34 but is also cheaper with less years and he fills a need on the team. There are many more great PGs in the league. Dame and Steph are two obvious ones. But players like Dragic, Lowry, Brogdon, etc. are good point guards who control the pace of the game. You trust them with the ball in thei...

re: Pels vs Clippers Game Thread: LOL Edition - lovepurplelivegold14
Thoughts: 1.) NAW looks like he can be a good 6th man. Good scoring off the bench which we've needed. 2.) Ingram should not be forced to be our primary playmaker too much for him. 3.) Hart shouldn't be forced to guard opponents best wing scorers. He's forced into a role he shouldn't be. He...
