I caught the beginning of the game and then went into a concert. So I didn't see any of this debacle. For this I am grateful.


Watching this team right now is giving me shades of pre-LBJ team...pretty much expecting losses, surprised at wins. Depressing.


Which was fine pre-LeBron because that was a bunch of NBA babies and no stars. Fine. That's not fine now with a bunch of veterans players and legit stars as I'm sure you'd agree

I'll stand by my opinion that I posted earlier I think I posted during preseason that it hurts us that our roster is never stable from one season to another. It amplifies injuries - which happens to every team - because then not only are you missing key people but it's people that don't have any experience playing with one another, don't necessarily know the coaches schemes, they just don't know anything and so we're always learning on the fly every season.

I believe in our talent so I'm digging deep and not panicking and I'm saying OK let's see how we're looking more around All-Star break, hopefully we will have a clearer picture by then of what this team really is.

No continuity. Unstable lineups don't allow for chemistry development. Our main pieces are injured or sick. It's very, very early. Patience people, patience.

Agreed!
With so many new pieces it's naturally going to take time. We have 72 more games, there is plenty of time to get it together if they play with more effort and heart.

I still believe if Lebron can stay healthy (and right now that’s a huge question mark) he automatically makes every single player on the roster much better. Even Russ.

Same can be said for AD but yeah to state the obvious he’s still no Lebron

If LeBron (and everyone else who plays) gets and stays healthy I think we'll be fine in the long run.

Key injuries really destroy your attempts at building chemistry, cohesiveness, confidence and consistent, coherent rotations and lienups.


Agreed 💯
And it’s perfectly normally for the majority of us to lose our (bleep) especially LG 😂🤣😂 during this horrible start but at the end of the day we’re 5-5 with 72 games to go.

So true. I'm amazed at the hateful, reflexive comments about Westbrook just in this thread, acting as if he's the devil.

It's just one game. Yes, a disastrous one, but one in which we were without our two best players.

Let's just try to be at least 1% better than we were yesterday.


Criticizing someone's bad play is being hateful? And someone called him the devil? Russell is playing horrible, and he's confirming what many have said. That he is either unwilling, or unable to change and play smarter. I was actually excited when we got him and remain very hopeful that he will work on this team. I expected it to take some time and I'm still holding out hope, but I have to admit that to this point it's been "shockingly" worse than I was expecting.
