“Light the beam” is corny as hits

I guess they gonna invent lame traditions to make up for the team’s lack of success.

Team has morale. It'd be one thing if they just gave up. They've got heart and the morale is high. We just cant shoot. And Russ is too much of a wildcard to inject any kind of stability.

But we take he good with bad.


I think the only players on this team that care are LeBron/Reaves/AD/Gabriel the others only care about putting up nice stats

Anything to cater Westbrook... Fact is Westbrook to me should be starting. But his stats looks better coming off the bench rather than as a starter.

Seriously I don't see the difference. He is still playing heavy minutes with Schro/Bev on the floor at times with Nunn. Roster is just unbalance.

Losing another close one...

Starting backcourt getting outscored 49-8.... Seen so many of this with the Schro/PatBev starting combo.

He doesn’t want to destroy the team’s remaining positive morale that we see every night which is competing almost every night only to screw it up at the end, you can thank the basketball gods that we played Houston the other night, if he said the team isn’t good enough the team would give up on him completely.

I do think majority of the players care to be honest. You dont see Schroeder dive for the ball multiple games if he doesn't care. Guys like JTA care as well and it shows.

I'd say the ONLY guy im certain doesn't care is Russ.

I dont think he cares at all. Multiple interviews and what he has said has shown that to me.

It’s a ripoff of the Angels lighting up the halo after wins.

It's a literal beam they light out the arena when the Kings win

Also Pat Bev didn’t play any defense on Fox at all. I am sick of seeing his fake good defense. That last bucket by Barnes was as much on him as it was on Russ.

I agree with the JTA take, he does have a lot of heart and hustle in him that doesn’t make you question his motivation, Schroeder has been solid for the most part but he seems to have confidence issues

He plays dumb sometimes, but he plays hard.

He doesn't play dumb ''sometimes''

He's consistent with the boneheaded plays. Doing dumb (bleep) every game isn't sometimes.

Russ telling teammates win lose or draw just have fun. Isn't showing that you care it's actually showing that regardless of the outcome it wont affect you. Who wants to hear that?

I've come to accept Russ for who he is and he gives me plenty chuckles every game. He used to make the games unwatchable for me but i got around to just seeing the comedy in it. He'll give you spectacular plays and then proceed to give you 4 straight duds. Im actually rooting for the guy but he makes it difficult. And he'll continue to make it difficult because this is who Russ is. He's incapable of changing who he is because he's incapable of owning up to his stupidity. How are you ever going to change your approach or evolve your game if you cant see your deficiencies.

Yeah Lebron does crap like that at times. And should rightfully be criticized.

He's also averaging 35/8/10 in January with our whole offense more or less dependent on him.

i don't need to pull the numbers, but i am guessing the numbers for Russ was pretty good for January as well. our second unit will be no where near competitive without him. i believe he cares, but he is just good enough like his old days. i will take his play now over last season and while that's not ideal, it is better than cutting him.

You cant say we have no talent then Blame russ. He has to deal with the same talent bron does. Russ manages to get something out of them like he always has.

We are getting eaten alive on Friday by Ja.

We will be 6 games under .500 and Pelinka will say there just isn’t a move to turn the team around.

Superstars will see that this front office lied to Lebron and we will not have any major free agent signings for as long as Jeanie is in town.


We are now the new Clippers, except we don’t even have Billy Crystal as a fan.


Plenty of other teams to route four
