    Confidence does wonders for a team, when one of our guys gets it watch things change.

    C'mon just having fun. They beat the Lakers without Lowry and Ibaka and making Dwight look bad.

    https://streamable.com/poqi2 Against the best defense in the league. Not even showing you the Siakam highlights, they are ridiculous. Pascal is a star, this other guy came out of the g-league.Gets to the line, draws a foul. Our guy, clanks 3 pointers loses the ball on the way to the basket. Watch the highlights from this game if you want to see see real power forwards clown Dwight all night.

    Every team makes mistakes, they must be strong and move on from them. LOL Mario!

    Magic Vs. Pacers - Sunday, Nov. 10th at 6:00 P.M.

    The Bucks couldn't handle an extra 20 million after extending Bledsoe, but Malcom was restricted. The Pacers sent the bucks a first and second round pick in a sign and trade. 20 million dollars. We could have had 20 million, just renounce Ross and Vooch. Brogdon would have been awesome with Fultz. His minutes replace Ross's minutes. There is no loyalty in this league. I know Ross and Vooch had great years. The players aren't loyal, they move.Ownership is not loyal, they trade players, look at Blake Griffin and CP3. We need management with balls, they should have known we had second tier players and swung a trade. Maybe we would have been lucky and signed Baynes like the Suns. He is filling in nicely for the suspended Ayton putting up same numbers or better then Vooch. He is playing on a one year 6 million contract.No more excuses, either the players we have play better or get rid of them. Edit. Just want to add we were one of the hottest teams in the league last spring.Our players have never had more value. Our pick was in the mid teens, but still had value.The value was there, moves could have been made. Instead we drafted a player who is not playing for us and signed a defensive forward.

    Defense was horrible in the second half, however it started because everyone went cold again.The offensive frustration carried over to the defense. It's called panic, i watched them, they folded. Like i said no alphas they all know now nobody is going to take over. It starts to become a mental state. I'm pretty sure you made a post about how we could have freed up 30 million, but only if we renounced Ross and Vooch. Yeah we all know that wasn't going to happen, too risky.

    The guys on the radio saying the same things i say, same things i read on redditt. Why do we not draft or acquire scorers? Why did the Pacers get Brogdon and we didn't? How does it feel to be beaten down by Sabonis, someone we drafted? Literally listening to this on the radio. Edit. This loss is the worst by far because the Pacers lost Paul George and rebuilt around our former players. They had a good year last year and still decided to rebuild their entire line-up. Some might say they had too because of free agents on their team. So they lost the player who carried them when Oladipo was out.No problem, they got a younger version.

    Guys, the real problem is too many Indians, not enough chiefs. I watched the game, saw the bad pick and roll defense.I saw the bad shots in the second half. I saw the weird rotations in the second half and i turned it off as we got torched by back-ups.We need some leaders out there.Clifford has weird rotations, but so did Vogel. If i was coaching i wouldn't know what to do with these guys either. There are really no leaders on the team, more like 4 or 5 guys who think they are.Also too many guys good at many things, but not great at one thing.

    I'm sure Pop would think, why don't i trade the guy who just dropped 39 points for the slow white center and Half bald shooting guard who can't score. I guess because they are younger and they shoot the 3 better?

    Yeah not a risk really.If we made that trade(the one 3 posts up) and he walked it would open up a bit of cap space and we would still have a dirt cheap bench player in Edwards. If Bamba turns out to be the next big thing, i guess it would look bad. We would still have Vooch and Birch. The important thing it would do is help Clifford and our forwards. The ball needs to be in Fultz's and Haywards hands to set up the other guys.I have thought we needed a forward with better handles to help take the load off DJ and Fournier the last few years. Let's face it guys, it's not Aaron.Isaac still has shot and Vooch has been ok, but we still ***** about buddy ball.

    Only a lengthy stay on the injury list would make Evan stay i think. If he plays well he will be 27 looking to sign one last big contract during his prime. If he plays poorly, it probably means he lost his minutes and will be looking for a fresh start. If he has any major injuries, well then, rehabbing on a guaranteed 17 million is pretty nice.

    Oh i would do it in a heartbeat. I just wonder if they would screw over Hayward who is obviously good in Brad Stevens system. Vucevic's declining salary is huge in this scenario. Kemba,Smart,Brown,Tatum and Vooch would be lethal offensively, with their wings covering up on defense. Meanwhile, how much better would our players be with a play making forward? Maybe Ross and Fournier stop jacking up bad shots and turning the ball over.Gordon actually plays the 4 with Isaac being a small ball 5 in crunch time. Sign me up please!

    I'm feeling frisky, imagine if we had renounced Ross,Vucevic and somehow made the same deal Indiana made for Brogdon.Throw in some luck, like we somehow acquired Baynes for 6 million like the Suns. What a world that would be.

    Hayward is ballin and his huge contract is up in one of the best years to have cap space. Trading him would also look bad, but if it's gonna happen it would be next summer. Edit. Imagine a team with Smart,Brown,Tatum and Giannis.Who cares who they have at center.

    That's just speculation, Spencer has one of the best contracts in the NBA and has shown a few times he can explode in the 4th quarter. Anyhow gonna say two things positive then negative. Isaac is going to be our star and i'm pretty sure he's not going anywhere for many years.If we can sign him and Fultz to good contracts there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Our guys have to shoot better it's the law of averages, nowhere to go but up. Now a sneaky negative.The defending champs are playing great this year, of course they have good players.One of the low-key reasons why is OG Anunoby, who is sporting a 67% true shooting percentage and looks much improved this year. He was drafted the year Henny traded Ibaka for Ross. Most of us remember the Raptors had two first round picks, but henny was only able to acquire the lesser pick. Rumor has it we traded the pick away because the Raptors took the player we wanted before our pick.That player was OG. ***** you Henny, i want a good small forward on the Magic!!!!!!!!
