I disagree about Cole, I have no problem saying I hate this dude. The definition of a selfish basketball player. Sure, he's hitting shots..tonight. He's also holding the ball the entirety of every possession so that nobody else touches the ball. Barkley talked about this on TNT one night, that there are many bad players in the league who think they're good because they put up a ton of shots. Cole is a team killer, he'll shoot you out of games as often or even more than he'll keep you in them. The goal of basketball is to create the highest percentage shot possible. He wants none of that, he wants to attempt circus shots to get reactions from the crowd because that's more important to him than fundamental team basketball. He's  100 percent a team killing selfish player, and the last kind of guy you want on a rebuilding team. I'm totally fine with people disagreeing with me on him, as I know most will.

 

Edit: And I'm also going all in with Suggs being a bust. Some of his passes are what I'd expect from a high school freshman playing basketball for the first time in his life. His shot is atrocious, he's hitting only 30 percent of his shots, and 23 percent from 3. He's light years from being a franchise player, which is what a 5th overall pick is supposed to be.

Bamba, Carter, JI, and Wagner are the building blocks of this team right now.

RJ HAMPTON!!!

Yall, Markelle truly doesn’t have his starting PG job with how Cole is playing. No way. This is a crazy start I didn’t see coming during the preseason.

Great win!. Some really great plays by all the young guys! Hope most of you all got to watch that! Those last few minutes were the highlight of the season so far. That steal, those dunks...the great shots by RJ and Cole just taking over!

Amazing!

 For those who could not watch wondering if coaches tank. They do not, when the game was close all the guys who weren't effective went to the bench. Mosley went for the win, Bamba, Suggs and Ross rode the pine the last quarter. Bamba was ok this game it's just WCJ was a beast! Suggs and Ross were bricking shots left and right so they rode pine.

I'm not going to say any of us know what is most important to him but I will absolutely say a large chunk of his decision making is definitely very selfish and infuriating. I didn't get to see this one but what he did against SAS was just abysmal and hopefully that ship will start to right itself when Markelle gets back and his minutes are limited to that 6th man role. Right now he is it and doesn't always know what to do with that.

Nah this team seriously needs a calm head at the top. His spot is safe.

Shout out to Moseley for leaving RJ and Harris out there instead of bring Suggs and Ross back in, who were both having bad games. 
Cole is the alpha we’ve been looking for and I am seeing a lot of early TMac In RJ. And I’M talking Toronto TMac so don’t get your panties in a bunch. Lol
