I don’t think Lebron will play this Sunday versus the Cavs.

He might not be sick anymore but now he’s probably gonna rest his ankle


He's just washed. Honestly it's going to be the same excuses this whole seaosn. It'll be the ankle. He's sick. In the end it's all part of getting older. Dude is 38. He wont ever be healthy, he cant dominate anymore.

Lebron 3 years ago on a bad ankle would still dominate this jazz team.

Now he cant finish against Olynyk. I hope he gets his record which he probably will. But he needs to accept that he isn't the dominant force he used to be.

Zion played, but yeah it’s still a (bleep) team that will lose unless they go 40% from 3.

Russ single handedly gets the lead down to 2.

Then we let a scrub like Walker Alexander come in and instantly drop 8-10 points on us.

Yes I agree with others in here, Lebron plays at least half way decent to his standards we win easily.


Terrible loss. Could of been 3-5 going into Sunday’s matchup with an eastern conference powerhouse team.

Glad the Lakers beat Denver and New Orleans, always glad with a win and could never root for a loss...but it would have been better for the team to be 0-8 right now to create a sense of urgency to upgrade the roster.

Westbrook for Rozier/Hayward no pics
Bev/Nunn for Turner 1FRP

Turner
AD
LBJ TBjr (Reeves)
Hayward Walker (Reeves)
Rozier Schroeder (Reeves)

Things went under when reaves turned that ball over when we have a chance to tie. I don’t understand why Ham took out Russ instead of Pat Bev at the start of the 4th

I'd be rooting for the tank if we controlled our pick.

Unfortunately we need to at least stay even with New Orleans.

Rozier is not needed since we got Lonnie. And Gordon’s contract is beyond terrible. I’d rather get Oubre and PJ Washington if we were to go that route.

Russ is ballin off the bench right now. I still do not believe Bron is washed and he’s just dealing with a lingering flu which for some reason got his toe sore.

I think he’ll wake up soon hopefully against Cleveland this Sunday. He always loves to punish Dan Gilbert for his sins

Pat Bev is a liability to the team...have to play exceptional defense with rebounds or assists close to double digits to cover for no offense.

Trade him and Nunn for Turner...include 1FRP

Lebron can’t even take centers off the dribble now, not because he is slow, it is because they just stay back and let him shoot. Unless he starts to make jump shots, that’s all he will see

I’ve been critical with Darvin on his free flowing offense in the past but I’m gonna give him a pass tonight. He’s motivating these guys to another level besides this loss tonight against a SURGING JAZZ squad.

Gotta give Utah some damn credit they are playing with nothing to lose.
Let’s see how Darvin gets out guys ready for the Cavs this Sunday....



But yes to piggy back what you were saying Austin murdered us with that timely turnover.
Really loved that Russ got those MVP chants tonight!! Much deserved

I understand the sentiment about Rozier but I would play him at PG with Hayward at SG so Schroeder and Walker can make us deep with a bench and injury insurance.

Use Russ ballin to sell high because long term we can use his $47mil more effectively since so many holes on the team. If we had Rozier and Hayward ballin this game perhaps we have a chance to win. Just Russ ballin we lose by double digits.

Yes, would rather have Oubre and Washington but those players are what makes Rozier and Hayward available for Russ for no pics. We would have a team on books with continuity for a change with Rozier/Hayward/LBJ/AD. Without the trade we are headed for another season with AD/LBJ and a bunch of vet min players...again.

Oh, have I mentioned Bev/Nunn for Turner too?

Yeah bro not totally sold on him being washed and basically Brian Cook 2.0

He’s getting over a flu which for some odd reason made his left toe sore

All These critics will only motivate him more to go off plus PED’s nowadays are amazing an with Lebron billionaire money he got access to those PED’s that don’t show up on drug tests LOL!

Damn could have been 3-5...Instead 2-6.

Trying to see where the (bleep) the next win is and i'd say against the Pistons. I dont know if we'll beat the Kings to be honest. Cavs have both Mitchell and Garland out it seems like. Maybe we'll win against them on Sunday.

Wtf is happening to Lebron man this is just sad to watch. It's crazy how much he's fallen off. Dude would have feasted against 2 years ago.

He cant create anything at half court anymore. And his shooting is so off Centers are just backing off him daring him to shoot.

Lebron is sick and has a sore ankle.
He should have been limited….
He has no lift..
He’s not washed, it’s called injury and being sick.
Down the stretch, he should have sat.
