I mean, they did get Avery Bradley to replace him.
Tobias is playing like a possible all star.
And Drummond changed his ft stroke and increased his ft% to 65%

I like KCP's off ball defense.

I hate his on ball defense.
I hate his passing.
I hate his dribbling.
I hate that he's a streaky shooter.
I hate that his ft% dropped 9% points.
I hate his interview skills.

Besides that, I love the guy.

Would put KCP on the bench in the Brewer role as backup 3. He, Hart, and Clarkson would provide a lineup with actual floor spacing.

Looks like KCP turned an ankle, I'm guessing, laboring and coming out for Tyler Ennis

Got to give credit to KCP last night too. He played pretty good on both sides of the court.

KCP scored 15 points on 6-12 shooting (3-6 from three) to go with 1 board, 2 assists, 2 steals, 1 turnover.
He hustled defensively to help close out the game. Overall he was solid all night long.

He has been excellent. No reason not to bring him back based off of where we stand now. Insert kcp and zo and our defense dramatically improves

Will there be a better or comparable option available for the starting 2 guard? Maybe they would start George there, but that seems like an awkward fit, and only more awkward as he gets older. Magic mentioned KCP as one of the players on the team for FA's to play with. Doesn't sound like a foregone conclusion that he's gone.

He had a slow start to the season but seems to have found his rhythm on both ends of the court. Considering who his agent is I just don't think he'll be asking for a reasonable price tag.

had not realized it...but looking at some numbers, and KCP's 3FG% is up to 37% on the season. It is a career high...he is also has career highs on the season in Rebounds and Steals.

I predict by the end of the season, he will have career high averages across the board...Points, Rebounds, Assists, Steals, FG%, and 3FG%.

He's doing exactly what he was brought here to do.
Hound the other teams best wing player and take pressure off Zo in the back court, playing the passing lanes, hustling, running on the wing, knocking down shots at a decent rate and having a few good scoring games.

Nearly 14 PPG -- 1.7 STLPG -- 5 RPG while shooting 37% from 3P% -- 40% FG% and 70% FT%. (STLS-REB and 3P% are all career highs thus far)
so far im satisfied with KCP's play.

KCP's impact is so underrated defensively. He takes questionable shots at times but the little things he does defensively helps us win games. Also, for better or worse he is fearless.

This! Agree with this post. He does get after it on D but he does seem to take some head scratching shots not in the flow of the offense.

4-14 on 3s. Just ridiculous.
Why are you shooting that much?

Also don't forget Lopez jacking up 3s. Seems like he has to shoot it all the time after Lonzo passes to him.

2-6 from Lopez is bearable.

The inconsistency of Luke Walton giving KCP the green light to jack whenever he wants, while at the same time putting a leash on Kyle Kuzma, is very frustrating for me.

Wasn't KCP like 4-10 before clanking the remaining

He's on/off too much, but the shots he took down the stretch were fine to me. Especially when the shots were designed like with the hammer action in the corner and the curl off the top

I said from the beginning, vastly overrated. He falls in love with the three and shoots us out of games more often than not. Detroit dodge a bullit. JC should start at two.

Huh? Luke puts a leash when kuz doesn't defend.
He has a green light on offense.

Not saying I like it, but who else can make a jumpshot? At least his chucking attempts have a chance of going in. Luke's options are pretty thin.

No he doesn't, I've seen Luke flip out on the sideline many times this season when Kuzma took a quick shot, heard Luke and Trudell say they wanted Kuzma to have a better balance of shooting and passing. Luke wants ball movement on offense, which is fine, but doesn't stress that to KCP.

Probably has more to do with the position he plays and KCP is already who he is

Kuzma can still be molded. Like Pop today came out that he was trying to change aldridge, but he's too old to change habits. I think it's smart of Luke to do that with Kuz since he looks like a huge stepping stone with the Lakers, compared to KCP who's gone after this year
