IF they go 0-10, their hands will be forced and BI will go to the bench.

This messed up BI totally

Last season he was facilitating , scoring , rebounding and just a force to deal
With trying to score on. His defense was great.

This preseason he looks so one minded its throwing his game off. I don't think I seem he grab a single offensive rebound this game. Whereas towards the end of the season he was getting putback dunks and outrebounding centers for second chance attempts.

Hopefully BI goes back to his old ways from last season

I completely understand that, but he needs to do it within the offense. He was fantastic the first 3 quarters. He was a completely different player in the 4th. He’s simply not good enough for Hero Ball.


Exactly. He's fine when he plays within himself, not when he's trying to impress Magic and "take over" the game.

Nah, if you've watched any nets preseason games...DLO isn't very good, like at all. DLO wasn't traded because of his BB skills, he was traded away because of his lack of dedication to his craft and locker room issues. BI sucks right now too, but at least he's working on it...


No, he was traded to dump the Moz contract. And Brooklyn is 3-0 so far, and he's scored 16, 9 and 19 points, 2 good shooting games, 1 bad between them. Russel's playing just fine.

But I agree BI is working on it.

all I know is we (the fans) had totally bought in to developing the youth....were excited and supportive....then Magic showed up, decided to trash that plan, and revert back to the exact plan that Jim and Mitch spectacularly failed at....and tried to pretend it was some new special strategy.


This in a nutshell.

DLO with this team would be so fun and exciting. He was ways the main piece. Its obvious that the coaching and playing with JC/JR was a struggle for him. But he actually made them look better.

Yet, our FO blamed him and literally threw him in the trash


Not much we can do, at this point pray that Luke has the brains to use Kuz and Lonzo more this season. While allowing Ingram to stay low and develop.

Our team could be:

DLO/BALL/BI/KUZ/MOZ

Bench of Randle, JC, Nance, Zu, etc.

Lol now fans are acting like DLO wasn't a disappointment and this is coming from a fan of his. DLo needed a change of scenery bad. He wasn't going to reach his full potential in LA.

Biggest concern for me watching Ingram is he doesn't even show FLASHES of talent. Sure he is long, somewhat athletic and can play O.K., but he hasn't shown any flashes of genius or excitement, for me at least.

Kuzma on the other hand... boy... I haven't been excited to watch a player play in a looooooong time.


I swear the hot takes are getting out of hand around here.......

Luke put Ingram in a bad position to end the game, and now the kid is going to get killed in the press. It's already happening in the post game press conference.

DLO needed a personality adjustment.

Too cool for school approach . The guy barely ran out there..always trotting around

Despite that, he was still pretty good. But even if your right, if the trade is good for him, it doesnt mean its good for us

Anyway, tough end for BI and the team, but this was easily their best performance so far and it shows promise for their defense this season.

DLo actually has skills. Ingram doesn't. You can practice real hard but talent wins in the end. Big fan of Ingram but he's regressing in this "new role."

And even so he was usually our best player. Probably could have addressed the "trotting" without sending him to the recycling bin, but guess we'll never know.

Played our death line up against gobert too much he destoryed the paint.

When we get Bogut back we wont have as many breakdowns.

Would of like to see Clarkson close the game since he was fire tonight
