I’m telling you. If they watch film on that last made 3 by Patty, Westbrook is gone. I watched him that entire possession. He decided not to close out hard. You knew the ball was going to him.

Anyone know why Dwight played 6 minutes?


Melo/Lebron at 4/5 was working better. Dwight group didn't look great


Yea so Fiz decide to play Melo at the 5 to end the 3rd instead?… That line-up was flatout bad.

Russ didn’t make a single basket longer than 3feet. He had about 12 missed shots at the rim.

Westbrook cost us this game. Blown layup. Blown dunk. No defense.

I caught 4 occasions when RW failed to play NBA level defense. So, along with his turnovers and poor shooting, he's also bad defensively.

Lebron gave RW the cold-eye a few times. RW is gone if Rob can find a team to take him.

Another reason we can’t fire Vogel, Fizale is beyond horrible. He is the genius that throw out the It/rondo/WB lineup too

The biggest question is who would want him and give us useful players? Didn’t lebron had the meeting at his house with WB and then overruled rob on the Hield trade? If so, he only has himself to blame

He does this all the time every game. Its (bleep) maddening. If you're going to shoot your team out of the game at least try your ass off on defense.

But we added him to the coaching staff. We have Fitzdale and Vogel, Though I trust Vogel more from a defensive stand point, Though, offensively, they both are useless. Fitzdale, I don't trust him offensively, defensively, nor rotationally.

Great players rarely make great GMs

Rob should have done his own thing, pay the klutch tax with THT but don’t blow up the team for Westbrook of all people.

Lebron did not look happy at all.
I saw some good stuff from other players

Westbrook is trash - terrible shooting, terrible decisions. $44 million is a huge joke. What a mess. I love his drive and effort but he’s not a smart player.

Stanley Johnson looked good
THT is trash but managed to score a little, as did Melo.
Collison was cooked - but I know it’s his first game in like 3 seasons
I liked Monk’s game

Lebron was great but I know he’s pissed….

Vogel probably isn’t stupid enough to put melo at 5 lineups. Can we just fire an assistant coach?

If anything, LBJ should be ashamed of himself for signing him. What else did he expect from WestBrick?

What so sad about that play, he called to switch and decided not guard Mills when Monk was trying to stick to him.

WB actually makes Lebron have worse stats by not being able to spread the floor in the 4th. Lebron is still beasting. We just need to include our '26 and '27 as sweeteners to get rid of WB. We need to do everything possible to build a contender around Lebron NOW while he's still balling. Mortgage our future's future if we have to.

I’d actually be happier if he just ran it back with last years team…

We didn’t need a third “star” - we needed another role player. Now we’re stuck with a $90mil “star” and no one gonna want his contract.

we lost but liked that Lebron played more off ball action... especially his low post backdoor cuts, nice to see.
