They weren't going to win anything with weak minded guys like Clarkson, DLO and Nance.

I will take Lance, Rondo, McGee instead...GLADLY

Great job by Maglinka, the vision is obvious. To win in the NBA, you have to have mentally tough guys who can take the heat. We have that now, I don't care that we are 2-3, this team is for real.

The fact that the team played so well in the 1st 3 games makes it seem like we have a better record then 2-3.

We are going to go thru our peaks and valleys being how we have so many new players. Come playoff time, NOBODY will want to face this team.

Hot Take

Lance is our third most impactful player behind Lebron and Mcgee

Luke should have stuck with the lineup that closed it out against the Nuggets and Lance has been a huge part of our 2 games we have won. Sad.

If only the whole team had the same intensity and passion that Lance plays on every possession, Lance, along with Bron & McGee have been the most consistent players on the team so far.

Good point ..

The questionable motor of some of our guys has always concerned me.

I would have preferred to have seen Lance on Derozan down the stretch instead of Hart. Derozan easily got to his spot and shot over Hart all night long, draining a sickeningly number of his looks. Hart tried, but was just overmatched.

Our idiot coach played him just 23 minutes. This loss was on Luke, and a large part from not giving Lance enough burn.

That was a very stupid of him and I have always defended Luke, Lance was a big reason why we were playing well in that game.

A post no one would have expected when he was first signed.

So we would rather not winning with veteran knuckleheads than young knuckleheads?

After last season there was an interview where Luke basically admitted he would throw games on purpose as a way to teach lessons. He needs to knock it off already.

I get that but some of his decisions are head scratching because of those exact reasons.

I was thinking the exact same thing. I wanted Lance in for either Rondo or Hart. I felt that he earned a least a shot at lifting us again.He wasn't playing particularly well, but I wanted to see what would happen if he had been in when the intensity increases.
