Finally have a Batman on the roster to pair with our Robins
I know that was meant to be funny, but it almost feels like that lately. There were some games where he was the Batman.
Batman is a state of mind. Kobe was a Batman. Kobe liked how Russ played.
Kobe wanted to play with Lebron so Lebron could be his Pippen. Pippen = Robin. AD = Robin. If Kobe played with Lebron there would be no question who was deciding on the last shot.
Batman needed Robin to have his back. Nothing wrong with Robins.
To be Batman, one needs to be reckless and selfish?
Kobe and Russ always spoke highly of you … wow!
You have to WANT the last shot, no matter how misguided you are in thinking you’re the best option. You have to want to step on throats and rip jugulars out. All game long.
not just “make the right play” and hope JR Smith comes through for you
I noticed one of your hobbies is twisting words
My point is I like the mentality that Russ brings to the game and the team. The sheer force of will. The ways he’s wired to compete. We need that after losing Batruso
Terrorize Jeremy Linn in practice …..
You both know it's true. Your definition of Batman is so far away from the character. I think Wolverine would be better, since Kobe and Russ are both berzerkersbut then you won't be able to disparage LeBron with your Robin schtick
We all pick on Batman/Robin since it’s the most well known superhero tandem.
The 1a and 1b of superheroes
the alpha and beta
The Kobe and Lebron, etc etc
“Holy crap Wolverine” doesn’t work.
hmmm...probably what jumped out at me is that we've run the russ/AD pick and roll basically as much as anyone runs any pick and roll, which actually shocks me.
Yeah, the eye test tells me we're barely running it at all. I guess no one is Stockton and Malone-ing it anymore? Makes since with the 3 ball spike.
he's number one at the rim and last in midrange
take a hint dude
Russ is warming up, maybe even a little earlier than usual. It's really unfortunate that Lebron has missed so many games, I had envisioned the trio to be clicking around this time. It's still good to start to see some chemistry being developed between Russ and AD.
Kobe was neither Batman nor Robin. He was a stone faced killer. He was Bane.
Villains don’t coach their daughter’s b-ball teams.
