1. Please do not attack other posters regardless of whether or not you agree with them.

2. Get the f*** out of this thread if you're not going to take it seriously/mock people who do.

Last warning on both of those before I just kick you out of the thread myself and before I hand out warnings for attacking members.

Nobody said "keep your mouth shut", they said keep it out of the optimistic thread. You can't vent all you want in other threads, have at it in the WMC thread, the Nash thread, whatever you want.

Pau scored 25 points on 10-15 shooting.

Hopefully this will help to boost his trade value. If we can trade him for some athletic players who can boost our bench, it could help us out.

^IMO, that happened without having Dwight occupy the paint as well when he was ejected from the game. They don't operate well together for the most part; Pau is just not what we need right now. He can't defend the rim, gets beat off the dribble, etc. We need more athleticism & defensive mind players right now...

well I wouldn't say "nobody"

For some reason, this felt A LOT like that game against Detroit in 2008 the day before we traded Kwame for Pau.

So I'm optimistic that Pau's 25 points on 10/15 shooting can help raise his trade value. I'm also hoping that the play where he got blocked because he had no lift on a simple hook shot that would've brought it down to a 5 point game with 2 minutes left will help convince management that Pau NEEDS to be traded.

Oh and yeah, Clark. He's the real deal and it seems like establishing him as a rotation player is giving him an Ariza-esque boost in confidence in his shooting.

I'm optimistic we'll get our 18th win before our 28th loss. :man11:

Seriously, though, I'm optimistic that we'll finally "turn things around" when Gasol gets traded, hopefully for Josh Smith someway somehow. Earl Clark was a +14 today. :man4:

earl Clark should start. period. Pau should volunteer himself off the bench if he wants the team to win and start games off right. also he should be happy Clark is playing well and would want him to start if he was helping them win especially when we need wins. maybe when were back in the top 8 (if that will ever happen, doubt it) then talk about pau starting but for now earl should start and pau should be so lucky to come off the bench

Apparently he's not, because he was warned to stop that stuff in this thread and he can't seem to stop, but instead keeps whining. This thread serves a purpose, some people want to look for the positive, nothing wrong with that, if he doesn't like it it's so easy to stay out of or ignore.

Because not everyone relishes in the bad play of their team in the hopes that they can be "right" about the team playing badly. Again, the entire point of your post is to do what? Say, "Hey guys look I knew we would suck and you all are dumb for not listening." Do you feel better? Is that the optimism you wish us to see? Yes, that must make you whole like the others who have spent the season dumping on the team, the coaches and the FO.

The losses being less painful notwithstanding - i thought today was a good show by Nash on O. Looked for/took/made his shots.
