See topic.

Does Paul George qualify?

We haven't had one for 5 years.
That's why we're trying to get one in the summer. Duh

Ingram has shown flashes of being that guy.

Easily fixed with Paul George and LeBron.

This team without Ingram? Sure. With Ingram, not so much. What's been nice (if there is anything nice) about Ingram being out is that its easy to see how much we miss him and the impact he brings. Never been more obvious these last two games.

How about letting our future like Lonzo taking the shots instead of chokers like IT and KCP?

Lonzo seemed to be a great closer last game?

Nah, too bright of an idea for Luke’s small little head.

Lonzo's step back jumper is our best bet. Too bad he didn't have a chance after hitting a clutch 3 earlier.

You mean the guy who almost turned it over inbounding it?

I keep hearing people say to let the young guys develop. I love our young guys but, we just witnessed why we have to go out and sign a max guy or two. Yes, I know BI wasn't playing but, there are levels to this and Dame is top shelf. We need a top shelf level player.

We would win this game with Ingram in there as well.

You mean how he shouldn’t have been inbounding the ball in the first place? And how nobody got open at all and had to throw one up?

To avoid the 5 second clock because Luke's play out of the timeout was trash.
