    Also Phil with the 09 and 10 championship teams. Starters played a twin tower, triangle game while the bench mob ran.

    yeah, this haunts me. Makes it feel like it’s possible to win while playing different styles in the same game.

    edit: Phil’s work in his second stint is what made me a believer, btw. Was not impressed until he took a team with smush and kwame starting to the playoffs, and then he went and won it all a couple more times with only one true superstar.

    Totally agree with you. That second stint made me a believer as well. Anyone can with either Shaq and Kobe or Michael and Pippen.

    I also feel the same about Pop, his later stint with an over the hill Duncan, broken down Ginobili and old Parker was really impressive and made me a believer. The championship in 2014 was some of the finest offensive team basketball I’ve ever seen. It’s the equal and opposite of the 2004 Pistons defensive team.

    Why has one of the most basic fundamentals(boxing out) become a lost art in today’s game?!??

    HbK can be seen doing it every chance he gets. I agree. It's f***ing basic basketball. Unless everyone is more concerned with getting back up the floor on offense or defense. Seems to me we'd be better served doing our bests under the basket at each end at least to some higher level.

    in fairness, dj didn't seem to be looking to go much of anywhere there. he was like "hey, i half-showed on the rotation. rebounds are someone else's job now."

    I still have hopes we will work this out but right now we are playing embarrassingly bad basketball on both ends of the court. It is hard on the eyes and irritating. As someone mentioned fundamentals. They have gone the way of the dinosaur with few exceptions. I watch the games to see HBK play some fundamentally sound ball and to see Carmelo shoot. Other than that I would save myself the aggravation.

    He’s been the biggest disappointment of this years signings for me. I didn’t expect a lot but certainly more than what he’s giving us.

    Looked sharp in the first Q. Good activity and Russ really looked for him against Plumlee.

    10 & 8 in only 11 minutes. Hard to complain with that.

    I don't understand why teams haven't figured out that every game we can, we run the first play of the game for our center. If a lob is there, it's going up. We've done it for going on 3 seasons now. It still catches teams by surprise.

    Yeah, he can definitely catch the ball and finish around the rim. You pretty much expect it to go in once he's got the ball.

    We missed having a legit lob target last season, DJ is one of the best. Westbrook is going to keep finding him.

    Why can’t the rest of RW’s game be as consistently good as his lob game compared to

    :Schrooder Clown: …. last season.

    Say what you will about the quality of some of our minimum signings, but the fact that they knowingly all signed up for uncertain and non-guaranteed roles creates such a better environment for Vogel and the locker room vs. last year's s*** show.
