Should be Clarkson but Luke is playing Hart as a SF with JC as a SG so someone has to handle PG duties. Go figure.

Cause the offense becomes a hard to watch 1v1 dribbling display when Clarkson plays PG. Thank god that experiment seems to have run its course.

I'd pull the trigger on a Clarkson + Randle for Bradley + Johnson from the Pistons right now, if I could.

And it was fine to start the season. Didn't we have one of the longest losing streak in franchise history with the little Ennis experiment? Thought so.

When we trade Randle for Nerlens Noel Dallas will throw in Devin Harris and maybe a 2nd round pick or two...donít worry, help is on the way. Harris is a very decent all around Pro.

That had about 1000x more to do with the starting PG/best player being out than who the backup PG was. Come on man.

I heard that they won't trade Harris unless he is okay with it. The Mavs are very loyal to their players not named Nash or Chandler lol. With that said, can we get Harris from 10 years ago? That player was something...

I would gladly take Seth Curry as our back up PG.

I actually like him as a 2-guard next to Zo as it may keep his indulgences in check, but yeah he's a disaster as a 1.

We had a 9 game losing streak this year, which I believe is the longest in franchise history.

However, Ennis didn't play in two of those games, and in four of the other loses he played less than 10 minutes, so you can't really attribute the losing streak to him.

Yep, they are waiting for Nerlensí thumb to heal up and him to pass medical and we are good to go.

Kidding BTW, i have no idea what if any moves the lakers are going to make...but would be nice if they acquired a vet PG, Ennis is truly horrible...Caruso IS better.

He shouldn't play, plain and simple. So those four count.

I'd even consider using Brewer to advance the ball before Ennis at this point.

Um, we're never poised to win a Play Off spot this season, so if Lonzo does get
injured, again, how are we screwed? We're a basement team this season with
or without Lonzo.

Clarkson should be the backup PG, that's his best position. He has had a strong season at backup PG. Really, we need a backup SF. Either that, or Luke should drop the hockey subs and let Hart backup both SG and SF positions. He's strong enough to defend SFs.

Lonzo/JC
KCP/Hart
Ingram/Hart
Randle/Kuzma
Lopez/Nance
