    Didn’t Brown just recently call out his teammates? Maybe he’s bad in the locker room now

    when we've got everybody and hopefully rediscover the art of playing team defense, who in the west is better? denver without murray? clippers without kawhi? maybe the warriors with klay (though i think they're severely overachieving)? phx without paul (call it a hunch)?

    my point is our conference isn't exactly fearsome this year. it's ripe for the taking, just like last year. if we're the healthy team, we could easily go the finals.

    I thought that was Marcus Smart who did that?

    it was smart

    he called out brown and tatum to pass the ball more. which is funny because smart has been terrible shooting the 3

    Looks like they won't be building around Schroeder the dummkopf then, lol. When trades rumors pop off around your position it ain't a good sign.

    Kuz and Trez leading the Wiz to the best record in the East so far. Kuz still has flaws and mental lapses, but his confidence is growing. Six 3s and a game winner last night. Eagle had 4 3s.

    Can’t wait til we have Nunn and THT. AB has been solid. Glad he is back.

    I sadly, very sadly, was one that didn’t think losing Caruso would have a substantial impact. Jesus Christ was I wrong.

    i'm curious to see what the wizards do when bryant returns. will they cut harrell's minutes? he's been great for them so far

    and i've mentioned this before, but not surprised at all to see kuzma truly break out. no lebron, no more pressure that comes with putting on a lakers uniform. perfect situation for him

    Did having any of the guys from last season, make a substantial impact last season? We had to play in the play in game. They all sure disappeared against Phoenix.

    yes, that the team couldn't beat phx without AD is definitely an indictment of the supporting cast.

    Perfect time for supporting cast members to step up isn't it? The Clippers supporting cast did I hate to say.

    Nope..They beat Utah and played Phoenix tougher than we did. The Suns won 3 of those games by a total of 11 points.

    ah, participation points. got it. and nobody said our reserves were better than the clippers'. we said they didn't suck, and we were absolutely correct.

    You never once cut any slack though reminded a thousand times (maybe 2K times) that AC was playing hurt in the Phoenix series, nor will you likely, in spite of what he’s doing this year away from LeBron in Chicago, come off the …. no more no less he’s a decent player and role players come and go …. they don’t move the needle. Many here adjust their takes while that just seems not in your style once you’ve taken a hard stance. He HAS continued to get better and we do miss him obviously.

    people needed scapegoats last year, for whatever reason. when the real issue was star health. hell, if lebron had played all the games so far, we'd have like, two losses and be in second place.

    and just like last year, with all those losers, when he was out, we lost to a bad team...twice. and that's with our third star in the fold.

    so, if we have lebron and AD we win a lot. and if we only have one, we don't. it's not kyle kuzma's fault.
