@_justin @TempBoy Brandon I am assuming this opinion is based on highly advanced verifiable metrics, given the massive amount of time this roster has played together at full health.

Even with KD out for a month or more aren't we still the 2nd or 3rd most talented team in the west?

@d21 (That's wassup) Based on the way Russ has come back from his "multiple surgeries", I am going to assume the team is good about using additional procedures as needed, to improve long term outcome. Might actually be the most appropriate medical route to maximize recovery in the long term.

I am sure detroit isn't thinking reggie gonna bail on them, just because he requested a trade here.

@_justin My problem with this argument is that given the sheer number of confounding factors, when a player switches a team, its hard to find any inferential value in such data. Especially, with the low sample size for a second year player.

@FunakiEjectsAnother [#StartLambFaction] I do that trade in a heartbeat. 


Its simple. You start Lebron with all bench players. And bring KD, ALONG WITH Russ and Serge off the bench. This way you stay withing the contract, but you are not black-balling KD to the bench. So no reason for him to be pissed off. Lastly, you make sure to give KD more PT than Lebron. 


Lebron, gets to start over KD, but no one can say KD was benched, if Russ and Serge went with him. win win

@DTVoyagin' We've known that for three years now. But he kept getting a pass due to untimely injuries. But after watching the Warriors this season, it's apparent that coaching can completely change the culture of a team. We need to go find our Steve Kerr, but yeah I guess the actual decision comes down to, who is available to fill the position.

@rednuht @ThePorkChopExpress Of course they are. It's like saying the students are just as implicit in being rowdy and distracting in a classroom setting as the teacher. That's the whole point, a better coach will manage the team better and get them to play team ball the way they should. That's precisely the quality brooks is lacking. 


NBA is very talent driven, you don't even really need a coach with the talent we have. But it's becoming more and more apparent that you can't win it all on talent alone. In fact I can't think of any team that has won a ring in the last 20 years that didn't have a good Xs and Os coach.

@El Prez @Mother Teresa @_justin @Chandler Bing.


As with his pull-up elbow jumper three years ago, I am inclined to say that this may simply be a matter of time. He has never had to carry a team in crunch time the way he has been trying to do this year. He has never been a great shooter, so that doesn't help his case, but other 'not-so-great' shooters have managed to excel at being clutch, so I am positive he can get there as well. 


To me the spurs game was a great improvement over his usual pattern of starting hot and cooling down miserably. I thought he took a great step that day, he overcame a horrible start and led his team to a victory. Growing pains are a part of the process. As long as we make the playoffs, everyone will forget this. Meanwhile, If we are going to dissect every bad game he has, then I don't know what else to say.

@harmlesslyfatal [[RW0 4 MVP]] @MaChris Westbrook came back after our 1-2 start. Then we went on a tear through Christmas. So he was there for most of that 21-4 start record.

@FF_pickups I think to suggest that we have a zero percent chance of winning without Gasol is a bit of an exaggeration. Are the chances better with Gasol over Perkins? Maybe. But for all hi offensive prowess, Pau is not Mark and certainly not a top defensive player. While Perkins may have his shortcomings he is still our defensive anchor and we all know that offensively we are a pretty good team because of these two guys called Kevin and Russ, but we need to shore up our defense. Defense is all about effort and attitude and Perkins does bring that. Also, given that we have improved every year as a team, have lost to the eventual champs in every single playoffs since 2009-2010 (save for last year, due to Westbrook injury), and have had injuries to our "big 3" in the playoffs two years running, you ought to wait and see what we can do when healthy. For all the perceived disappointment this offseason, I can honestly say that we have actually improved. We have added more promising rookies, a solid 3 pt shooter and we also have a line up change to look forward to. Bank on the improvement of our young (under 25) guys and lets see what they bring come October, before we start making unfounded lamentation about how missing out on this or that free agent spells doom and gloom for us.

This may be completely ridiculous, but what would make this scenario work? I feel this could be a win-win for every team involved? If the Lakers, are able to snag another big name free agent off of the free agency this year they become instant contenders.

@ricky_roe @niimits That certainly goes without saying. I am not saying make him the scapegoat for the "failed" (assuming chip or bust) season, but just asking for legitimate reasons for why he isn't considered expendable by some? You only fire him if you can get a better coach of course, but there are decent coaches on the market, heck we are even in a good position to give Fish that offer (even Phil Jackson is after him).

Scott Brooks is almost as polarizing a figure to discuss on this board as Westbrook is everywhere. I don't usually play the blame Scott Brooks game, but I do wan't to sincerely ask one of the Brooks faithfuls, why they believe he shouldn't be fired? He was great at developing talent and I don't know if KD, Westbrook, Ibaka, Harden, Reggie develop as much as they did. But now that we are no longer in that development phase, what does he bring to the table? What makes him a better option than and Xs and Os coach? Certainly we are not going to get a Phil, Pop or Spoelstra/Riley level coach, but it would be nice to have some kind of an offensive system. The Spurs make the scrubs work because of a system, we certainly have players of that caliber on our bench, is it not worth a shot to try a coaching change to see if we can get some utility out of our bench? Why is Brooks considered untouchable by some? Sincere question.
