is playing like he thinks hes Kobe....is he pressing needs a pg that will get him the ball at the right time.
Hes the best we have right now at the 3. We have too keep him at the 3 starting. Hes our James Johnson with better vision and offence.
As much as many want to unload Andrea hes still our best at the 4spot. More time with Calderon
and you will see a better Andrea.
With Jose getting back into the starting role Amir will rise to the occasion.
We really suck right now. All this bullshit about us being better this year is just bullshit. Our big additions like Lowry and Fields are major busts for our team.
DC has to shake things up before Sundays game if no trades are made. As listed above those are my starting 5. How long do we go without changing your quarterback ???? Fuck me if this was football Lowry would have been on the bench.
Who gives a fuck that we traded a 1st round pick for Lowry ? We are so much worst then last year. DC has to change it up...accept the fact we blew it with the Lowy trade. There is no chemistry on our team.

Good on you R123, you're lile Ja telling Ashanti, cause you're real.
he made one good point on bargnani, which I've defended in the past.
the rest of it.. well let's look at the facts. raps are playing some of the worse defence in the league and it only gets worse when jose comes on. up until the moment lowry was in we were ahead of utah. manuel comes in and 3 pointers galore... why? a simple drive and dish. pg drives past what at this point really is, a pilon on defence, teammates collapse to help, dish out to the three, make the extra pass if needed, and a wide open three for an excellent 3 point shooting team.
casey switches to zone to cover caldy's deficiancy, but a zone against a 3 point shooting team is a mistake, especially with manuel who can't rotate quick enough which is crucial in a zone, and more 3 pointers galore.
lowry comes back on, zone is scrapped, penetration stops, and we get some stops from tough shots forced by guys not being left wide open on forced rotation...
see a pattern???
