    No one gets that call at the end of the game. It would have to be pretty damn blatant.

    ONE good draft pick(46th overall) in 3-4 years. Yay!
    Lol that was predictable.

    It's okay, everybody needs to vent.

    He was seeking the foul; not attempting to actually make a basket. That would never get called at that time of the game.
    At first he thought he was gonna take him one-on-one, then he realized he couldn't get more than a step inside the three point line AND couldn't create separation and he figured he'd jack the shot for a foul, but there was no foul. It was a terrible possession and the kind of "gonna score now no matter what" that DeMar is prone to vs making a good basketball play (which LBJ likes to do and gets criticized for instead of jacking shots). Fortunately DeMar has developed to the point where his offence is much more dominant than it used to be and this kind of play is something we used to see a lot more often than we do now, but still - it was a really ugly possession.

    It's really irrelevant. It should never have come to this after a 15 pt lead with 9 mins to go.

    Ugh..... there was this really old post I made about the Gay trade evaluating the pieces we got for him. Shame to see that GV is out of the league at this point, given that he's essentially a better shooting version of Ricky Rubio. I can't find it, but Masai was willing to go full-tank until he watched this team play with the new pieces. He then realized we had the depth to compete & make the playoffs. Which is why KLOE isn't south of the border in the Big Apple.

    The worst thing that can happen right now: Nothing. We stay put, no trades, no firing Casey, etc. We just stay pat. I thin Masai is realizing the patience of his team is high.... but then again, he's the Billy Beane of Hoops. Never watching games live, keeping quiet & mysterious. I like that about the guy. Also.... you know fully well most rumours for us never come to fruition.
    Rubio is a good defender. You are underselling him with that comparison.

    Rubio's 2 biggest strengths are being an elite passer and defender, neither of which Vasquez is, so that comparison makes so sense at all.

    Vasquez is actually a really good passer. He averaged 9 assists per game with New Orleans.

    Rubio is an elite defender. That's his biggest strength. I don't like the Rubio Vasquez comp just for that reason.

    And we killed his passing, just like we do to many many players.
