I’m also getting tired of Tyrese’s 4-6 point outputs. If he’s supposed to be a serious player going forward it’s time to put up mans individual offense

It also speaks to the fact. This team has no dogs. Hali is a nice guy. Alpha Dog he’s not.

The last player that really had the dog in him? Artest when he was here. A century ago.

Their is Zero Mental toughness on this team.
That includes Fox.

I look at other guards that are compared to Fox: Mitchell, Trey, Morant, etc.’

Fox may be putting up better stats. But, these guys are just next level when it comes to
Winning and having that killer mentality.

I fear Haliburton is not healthy/or going to be. He’s got a limp in his gate. Short/off on shots. Suddenly never in passing lane or playing good D, which he does.

Color me jaded, but I’m glad they’re getting put back on earth tonight to stop the temporary daydream. This is not a competent team, even when our offensive ranking is strong. Philly missing their MVP and still getting blown out should be a sign to do the right thing before the trade deadline, although I’d still like to avoid the shuffling of the deck chairs. I think I’d only be disappointed if no trades of substance happen or we trade a chip for a couple journeymen similar to the Vlade days.

Yes I like the opposing takes. They brought up a good point about Richaun Holmes’ league high fg percentage being a byproduct of getting fed by Fox (honestly all of our guards plus Barnes in reality, so I personally would say our system puts him in a position to succeed). I wonder if our front office sees it that way also and what affect that would have on us retaining him.

I feel like mark jones is always trying to set up a big call, and I don’t notice that with other play by play guys. Like yesterday, “de’aaron pulls up from 3, we all know what he can do from there!” Fox proceeds to brick. Maybe it’s just the AV lag that makes it seem like they are just not feeling the momentum quite right. Another thing was just the general lack of NBA awareness, like saying the king’s should target the payton pritchard matchup on offense as he is a weak defender. Pritchard’s not been a weak defender this year. He later said barnes has a mismatch with Marcus smart, who I cannot think of that many players 1-5 that would have a mismatch with smart.

ISO. That’s ok. If we had a least one high upside ISO player,

He’s only 19. If he gets the right coaching around him that kid is going to be quite good.
