I pity the fool who wears a naked chin
Hey Old Man Game, see? I told you no worries. No way Dion plays 3 consecutive good games, especially when we run into actual good opponents.

@Obama Adams this reminds me of when we blew the huge lead against the Mavs because Brooks kept Thabo in the game for defense to "stop the run" and we went almost 3 minutes without scoring.

@Obama Adams he's a way bigger part of our team than he is of our plan. Brooks and co. have yet to figure that out though.
@Slackard why does being a fan have to mean agreeing with every decision made by the organization you support? And I also love the assertion that "Because person a) does activity a) for a living, they are above questioning from person b) who does not do activity a) for a living".
The other great part of this is that Crow has come in here many times to provide analytics that refute things the organization has done, and he's turned down gigs with NBA teams in the past.
We all enjoy watching this team, at least on most nights (the first part of this season was painful), and that's why we're here. That's why we're fans. We want what's best for the team, and that's why the criticism rains down on Brooks. Are we always right? Heck no. There are some incredibly stupid things said here. But your line of reasoning is, while very optimistic, awful.

The narrative that out of bounds plays are drawn up to rely on your stars sounds good until you realize Boston won the game two nights ago on an out of bounds play for Tyler freaking Zeller

@Lost Ones(#blackpride) @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard nothing scott brooks has developed was done in a day... or a week... or a month... or a year... or even two years... usually around 3

@CollisonDoppelganger @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 Zlatan's not egotistical. He just knows that he can put anything within 100 yds in the upper 90 on a laser, and he's ginormous. That would make me egotistical too.
@d21 @Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 id say winger. picturing a gareth bale type. blazing speed in space
But your scenario is probably more realistic given who Russ is
@Lost Ones(#blackpride) @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard less isolation players, similar number of isolation plays
@Paul Pogba To Arsenal 2015 if you isolate just perry and lamb, this becomes the creepiest, homo-est photo in NBA history since this:
@Lost Ones(#blackpride) except for when our offensive system consists almost solely of iso'ing perimeter players
@GlendaGonzales or too much singular play is a result of a poor overall team offense. Which came first, the chicken or the egg? It's arguable.
@eallen7 they will if Jahlil Okafor or D'Angelo Russell ever gets hurt
@L0rv i seriously can't stop watching this. i'm probably responsible for around 300 loops at this point

@d21 ..... why? If they wanted to solidify the tank, should've gone after Perk.
@d21 @L0rv the ref's face is even more priceless
@L0rv That. Is. CLASSIC!
@_justin @MartzMimic Not fair to give Russ and Curry that qualifier without giving Harden the same. Ariza, and (as crap as he is) Beverly are both solid defensive perimeter players, and when he's playing, Dwight is obviously a high level player.
Harden's stepped up his defense this year, no doubt, but don't discount Curry and Russ just to make him look even better.

@KC_Thunder @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard I'm guessing he figured somebody would rotate if he kept him on the left half of the court. Also think it's that he's weak, so once Russ had him on his hip, no way he could've gotten position back in front of him without taking an angle to try to beat him to the spot at the elbow instead of trying to actually get in front of him
@KC_Thunder Your answer is- Ish Smith is garbage
@d21 Brooks- "All right Kyle Korver. What we're going to draw up here, is we're going to cross half court and give you the ball. Everybody's going to run to a corner, you're going to be guarded by prime Bruce Bowen, and you make a 3 happen. Got it?"
Kyle- "Trade me now"
@holymosesmalone true, but the bars are pretty brilliant
@KC_Thunder Move Robes and Dion out of the rotation entirely. Play Morrow with the starters.

@Pillendreher (Lamb over Waiters faction) @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard Then the question becomes, how in the heck are you shooting around 20% on uncontested 3's
@holymosesmalone I'm down
Independent's Day is a heckuva fire album. Royce just gets better and better
@Pillendreher (Lamb over Waiters faction) @okcjim my basketball soul is in tears
@SeinfeldOKC Dion and Waiters are not two separate people... so that's 4
@Pillendreher (Lamb over Waiters faction) how the heck do you shoot 42% at the rim, and why has he taken 20 3's from a spot on the floor where he's shooting 25%... and why 17 from somewhere he's shooting 17%. Oy vey
@Old Man Game don't worry about bracing yourself. We play two decent teams. Dion will play like poo in at least one of two.
So, how long until Dion goes off, and we get a "Dion's a good player, Scott Brooks is a good coach, and Perk was underrated" article?
@Pillendreher (Lamb over Waiters faction) @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard That, and when faced with a personnel decision, usually Brooks makes the wrong one, so I trust in him to continue that trend here.
So, who wants to take bets with me on Steven Adams starting when he gets back. Pretty sure Brooks starts him.
@mattchant ... he's already lost the Thunder a game though, so this is already proven false
@_stache um.. every pg lebron or kobe has ever played with does that

@The Meerkat No?
@meanstreetsofokc Given Lebron's slightly more feminine tendencies than what KD's shown, I'm sure he really enjoys Perk's whiskers touching him while he whispers in his ear
@propsizzle @TheresABabyFaceUnderMyBeard @d21 @Do we Deserve Serge? *Formerly Tvaddic* Na. ESPN is 7 hours late. Darnell is anywhere from 7 days to 7 months late
