    I'm so done with him and his ball hogging.

    Trade him, cut him, shoot him. I don't care. I just don't want to see him on the court again.

    No, I'm fine with him playing 20 minutes a game as a SG that doesn't initiate anything. Spot up. Cuts. Some ISO.

    He’s reverted. He’s not a PG, so he always reverts. I really do think he’s a valuable bench scorer when he’s spotting up, cutting, driving on the fast break. But when he is running the offense he dribbles too much and gets tunnel vision. If we can’t get a real PG to feed him the ball, this is going to happen, he’s going to have good nights, and really bad nights. I don’t know what we could even get for him in a trade. Shame Hart hasn’t been able to step up and make him more expendable.

    I hear you @Weezy. At his best (non-dribbling, aggressive, under control) he's fine. But when is that? Not often enough.

    for my mental health well being, he's gotta go.

    And I blame Luke. He's got Randle on this tight leash and lets Clarkson do whatever he wants. Makes no sense!!! BENCH HIM! How else is he going to know. Do it again and you're on the bench.

    I've played with Clarkson types at the gym. They only care about "getting theirs". He wants stats and has no concept of setting up other players to keep them involved, stretching the floor, not being a ball hog, and allowing the game to come to him. Instead it's 50 dribbles and a last second 3, if he hasn't turned it over yet.

    I"m done with him. Trade him or bench him. but you can't win with a player like that.

    AND. I wanna know why the press isn't asking that question over and over and over. Call Luke on it. Call Clarkson on it. They get free passes.

    :Laugh:.... Zen with the "I wish they shipped his a** together with his broAngello to Nets for like a spare pair of underwear for Kuz." smack.

    And yeah Jordan.... and for that matter everyone else out there ..... with Vander Blue in front of his hometown crowd, what it have killed any of you to pass him the ball for a shot or two rather than freezing him out it almost looked like? WTF with that. Pissed me off watching.

    Clarkson gets in that 2 man game with Randle and doesn't see anyone else.

    Stinker game tonight for Clarkson. I still like his scoring though on most nights. I think he does the sixth man scorer role well this year.

    He's done very well in that role actually, scoring the ball and getting to the line. Can't shake the playing stupid and forcing low % stuff yet though.

    I don't think he is winning the 6th man award.

    Well .... in Jordan's defense what did you expect him to do? He was too busy f****** dribbling the ball to see Zo.
