    He just needs to accept his fate and buzz his hair.

    But for real tho, Caruso should be the backup to Zo, not T.Ennis.

    At least it's not a big 2 inch diameter circle of white bird s*** like Sheed went through his career with. Leave the kid alone about his hair. Shaved heads don't always rock. Or when LBJ gets here maybe he can recommend his hair plug guy.

    Who knew. Clarkson while at Missouri played against Caruso at Texas A&M. Remembers him being tough defensively. And AC remembers how they game planned for Clarkson. Now they're an item together. (like me and LVBD apparently :Laugh: )

    Alex Caruso making most of his time with Lakers, scoring career-high nine points in 127-107 win over Knicks

    Hey, I was in his same boat. Trust me, it's a lot less stressful and carefree when it's buzzed. He could rock the Jason Williams look for White Chocolate 2.0.

    The obvious is that AC needs to be starting instead of Ennis but this was something that Luke addressed last night in the post game press conference. It's obvious to us fans that AC is clearly outplaying Ennis and I do believe Luke and the staff know this as well from the last two games. However, Luke last night was saying how by AC playing with JC in the 2nd unit it allows JC to play more off ball which is part of JC's recent success. Knowing Luke like we do I think he may stick with Ennis as the starting PG, but not believe he thinks Ennis is playing better but because we've won 2 in a row (6 out of 8 games) and he doesn't want to ruin any on court chemistry between AC and JC.

    Also keep in mind that AC has played all the minutes in the 4th quarter which is what matter most IMO

    Jordan made some derogatory quotes about him in that tweet thread.

    Jordan is mean.

    I'd say by AC's response he was not gonna play.

    And he could have responded "we'll see who's still on the squad next season" [​IMG]

    Nope. Not as PG anyway. His assists are Westbrook/Harden assists. These are the worst kind, IMO -- where 80% of possession is pounding the ball,
    then passing if no scoring option presents itself.

    Zo doesn't do that s*** and the results are visibly more palatable.

    Who said as a PG? Scoring the ball. His game and repertoire are blowing up. Playing better and smarter with less pounding. The Lou Williams role.

    Anybody is better than Tyler Anus. Caruso needs to back up Ball.

    Held the fort in the third running the second unit. Kept the ball moving instead of just dribbling around...had a pair of slip passes in close setting up scores. Did what he could against Irving which was an abuse that went on too long.

    This man needs to start till Zo gets back. It seems like our offense looks stagnant with Ennis

    Either he, Hart, or JC need to take Ennis' spot in the starting lineup with Zo out.
