Because they are not good enough or consistent enough to do that. They are young, athletic bench players and it shows. They can be fantastic... or really bad. They need a leader on the floor, and right now they don't have one.

Their offense fuels their defense. When the shots fall, this team plays defense.

That's right. Forgot it's the D'Anphony system. Just a crap shoot.

What just happened...
In the real world, the day Steph awoke at 9 a.m. to begin his Ustream show, Kobe Bryant probably awoke at the same time, even if it was 6 a.m. in California, and lifted weights.

Trapped Jackson in the corner and you can hear it through the audio players yelling trying to get in his head, players on the bench up making noise......

That's the kind of attitude we need going forward.

Bulls can lose their top 2 players and not miss a beat, why? Because they do the above every possession. If I had to pick a prototype of a team going forward we should mold ourselves after, it's the Bulls.

I don't understand those KIA commercials at all... All it the commercial showed was Laurence Fishburne (the guy from the Matrix that offers the pill) sitting in a chair talking about "luxury". Why don't they actually talk about what the car DOES, as opposed to how it LOOKS? (or how it makes you "feel") sorry ranting here but I would never buy a car based off a commercial like that.

Pau has plenty of qualities as an NBA player and he's a terrific guy as well. But he was never what you would call a "leader type". And that's OK. Not everyone can do that.

That's how I feel about Heineken beer and those Euro trash commercials. :man10:

I know what you are talking about. Should have never gotten rid of D. Fish.

See, Fish is a good example. He was never as talented as Pau. Not even close. But he's a true leader. Pau is a locker room guy for sure, but not a leader. He's not very charismatic. But, when Fish talks, everyone listens. And that includes guys like Kobe and Shaq.

Kelly with 12/5/8 game. He looks like Luke from his best days. :man10:

Seriously, Phil would love this guy.

Guess Meeks just guaranteed himself a new contract.

Well, look... you can't do this if you have no talent, right? :man1:

If we don't sign him, someone will, for sure.

RKelly still torching them.

The more I think about it.....

Did he get snubbed for the Rookie/Sophomore game?
