Everyone on the team: "We didn't get enough stops. And we didn't get out in transition enough."


We saw what happened to a running QB in the playoffs yet again. Relying on transition is a gimmick, you are screwed when scouting and professional game planning happens.

Welp there's a guy at the head of the FO that thinks Showtime Basketball 99.9% of the time is all you need to succeed in todays game. So....

This is a time the team could really use a LaVar Ball soundbite.

LaVar coming out and going "those guys don't want to play for Luke. He doesn't know how to maximize them." would make them go on a winning streak just like last year

It will motivate them more than Luke ever will.


You mean it would motivate Magic to trade Lonzo faster? I'm surprised Lavar has been so quiet and well-behaved this season. I guess he's not so reckless after all.

I unmuted the post game for a minute and Chris McGee immediately went into the young guys “Are The expectations too high? You don’t see young guys win a lot”. Actually I’m seeing young guys win all over the damn league Chris

It is time to dispense with the tired “young guys” excuse.

Russell cant crack 30 minutes per game in his 4th year. Don't bring that guy up. He's as mediocre as ever


Is this a joke?

Hes been crushing it and leading his team to a very nice run. In addition to the numbers, he hit a couple of big shots when the Bulls made some mini runs.

There are fair criticisms, but he is definitely not mediocre lol

Mediocre is better than trash.


Russel is averaging 18/6 on 42% FG and 35 % 3pt FG along with 3to's

Nobody is losing sleep over D'angelo (bleep) Russel


No one is losing sleep but he still playing better than our young guys. That said I don’t know if he would be playing better if he were still here because we don’t seem to develop our young guys. We seem to run a few drills and then stick them out there and hope it works out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Atinkson is a great coach in the making, he gets the most out of what he has , something luke has serious problems with. I seriously would have loved Atkinson on this team. I guarantee you it would have been a totally different look for the better.


The Coach also needs a good and stabile front office and organization to prosper.

The only way to bring back Showtime, is with Pat Riley helping run the office. Bring in Spo and surround Bron with talent.


Would that be bringing Showtime back or the Heat?

I'm game. Would love to have Pat and Spo right now. Do it, Jeanie!!


It's legitimately the best news I've heard all week.
And by week I mean month.


Maybe even all year?!

AGREED!

That’s a large part of I mean the really the biggest part of why I’m not excited about this Riley/Spo rumor. I mean I don’t think the rumor is true but if it is true we just had a major turn over in our front office we don’t need another one we need to get some stability so we can start to grow. So if we could just get a new coach and a new coaching staff then that’s great but I see no reason nor any benefits why we need to flip over the front office again.

Magic's been on the job for two years. We've got enough of a sample size of his moves that we could conclude that he's not a good pobo. He's terrible at evaluating talents. Why would you want to stick with someone like that? Continuity is only important if it's good continuity.

if only it was still about weightlifting, juicing up and taking advantage of less technology to breakdown your opponent.

Now we have nerds like Morey who have the audacity to use analytics and natural evolution of the sport. Smh they win with a fat Harden
