    Dude (Booker) was always punchable ;)
    Im more "scared" of Crowder though. Waiting for him to pull a stunt on Bron...

    Good news, at least no structural damage. Hope he’s a go on Sunday, otherwise other guys are going to have to step up.

    So, he might feel well enough to split minutes with Wes. Depending on the pain level, obviously.

    As much as he drives us crazy, KCP is an integral part of the success of this team. I liken him to a smartphone. He is guaranteed to reset to factory settings at least twice a season. I’m confident he’ll reboot and get back to a hot shooting streak when we need it most.

    we need him, especially against this team, and even if he's not shooting well. his defensive activity on the perimeter is not something we can really replace (AC and wes aren't as fast, schroder isn't big enough).

    With KCP out, time for the other guys to step up and play defense on Booker.

    There ya go Wes. Warm up, get happy with your shot, hit a couple to start the game. Knock Chris Paul on his a** if the chance happens along.

    Shoot 10 threes. Make at least 3. D up on Booker. You got this KCPlayoffs!

    Then you’d have called him soft.

    i'd agree but we have no one else to guard booker, so i think we had to try it. it failed.

    but again, he's hurt and shouldn't be playing. people need to remember this while harping on his lack of scoring.

    He stepped it up in game 6 but way too late. Games 1-5, KCP made only one three. That is unacceptable. He's got great hustle and can play some good defense but man, it hurt seeing him play that awful when he played so well for us in the playoffs. I think he will end up staying a Lakers.
