re: Where are the Gentry sycophants chiming that he wins the winnable games? - DeionDeion
the best doctors in the world will have patients that continue to not take their blood pressure medication despite encouragement. the best parents in the world can still have awful kids. when players think they can sleep-walk through a game, there is almost no amount of motivating a coach can do...

re: It seemed clear to me that defense is our problem - DeionDeion
[quote]If Jrue/Lonzo/Hart are all too small to be the guy that handles LeBron/Kawhi types, does Ingram become the SG as some have suggested so you can add a starting caliber 2 way SF sized wing? (which obviously pushes Jrue out, probably in a deal to get that SF)[/quote] in terms of roster cons...

[quote]Everyone wants Myles Turner next to Zion now. Hayes has the potential to grow into a Myles Turner type. I do think Hayes/Zion pairing at this point is akin to lighting the defense on fire[/quote] fwiw, if you compare & contrast the last 3 really good centers to come out of Texas, they are ...

re: It seemed clear to me that defense is our problem - DeionDeion
yea as much as I hate to admit it, Zion is making Hayes somewhat unplayable (at least with Hayes' current skillsets today) it's been pretty clear to me what the team needs around Zion & BI - low usage 3&D players. Jaxson is neither a great defender nor a shooter. could he become a very good def...

re: Are the Lakers our new Warriors? - DeionDeion
no, the Lakers are not close to being as dominate as the Warriors the Lakers have LeBron, who turns it up when he has to/wants to. go back to any season in which you think a LeBron-led team is down & out and they march back. he is just a phenomenal basketball player...

re: Redick - DeionDeion
what did JJ do in the last Lakers game? play 20 mins and knock down 3 free throws. last game the Lakers sent 2 guys at him & JJ couldn't handle their length. what hurt us was defense (which JJ doesn't help improve) & inability to hit perimeter shots (with most already having decent spacing)...

re: Lonzo Ball is massive piece for NOLA. - DeionDeion
I cannot believe I'm saying this, but I think Lonzo could actually be a long-term piece for us. He still needs to improve his shooting overall. He still needs to drive more to be enough of a scoring threat to keep the defense honest & to break down the defense, but he is the kind of low-usage, p...

re: How exactly do we get better on defense? - DeionDeion
ive gotten use to the lazy takes lol what changed from us being better defensively last season was 1) we lost a perennial DPOY candidate in AD, 2) have 5 of 15 players that returned from last season's roster (Jrue & Moore are the only 2 of those 5 getting consistent minutes), & 3) replaced Erma...

re: TRADE DEADLINE - DeionDeion
as much as we all love NAW & Hayes, there is a significant gap between where they are now, & where they need to be to contribute at a consistent level on a good team obviously we don't want to stunt either of those guys' growth, but I doubt either are ready to play big minutes next season...
