    I was going to do a gif breakdown of Jordan's excellent 4th quarter, but Pete does a better job of it. He also points out a few very good defensive possessions by Lopez if you want to feel slightly better about Lopez. :D

    Haven't read this thread at all, so not sure if it has been discussed, but Clarkson is damn good in the post.

    Really? Funny doesn't stick out to me but will take your word. Have to watch closer. Are you talking back to basket or shooting the floaters and stuff down there? I don't recall him back to the basket ..... always aggressively going toward the hoop.

    He is playing very poised in the post. Most players rush their shots, but he is really playing well.

    I think I would define the post as anything in the painted area. He's been solid. Facing up, back to the basket, drives, all of it.

    OK. Post game to me always implied back to the basket but that might just be me. Whatever, Jordan has really worked hard and stepped his game up this year. Good for him and good for us however it turns out. I'd lose him before I'd lose Randle at the age of 22 who keeps getting better and can be so dominating at times.

    Let's trade him or Julius (or both), to get rid of Deng's corpses...

    Hmmm how far off is he from the 6th man of the year award? He has to be near the top right?
    Solid play again tonight, looks more methodical in the baskets he takes, less black hole-y.

    Unfortunately we're probably not going to win enough for him to get consideration.

    I hate hearing Jordan Clarkson talk because he never sounds very smart or insightful, but here he is

    He doesn't sound smart or insightful cause he's not smart or insightful. He's not JR Smith level dumb, but he's not going to be joining MENSA anytime soon. He still comes off as a rookie that's 20 or 21 years old. The dude is 25 and in his 4th year. I'm not expecting Kobe or Duncan level insights.

    As long as he's ballin' I don't care. Let him do his thing.

    Or you want more "IQ" and ride with Mr. Deng ;)? ...

    On a more serious note, I tend to agree with you. People joke about it but I really do think Nick Young made a big impression on him.

    I completely agree with you. At some point you hope it sounds like he grows up a bit.
