This is bad as it seems.
It is so obvious Malone this playoff for some reason more tried to make a scapegoat of MPJ than help him to continue with his bubble breakthrough development. And Malone is a grandmaster to broke young player confidence when he blacklisted him. The last 10 games in Denver, Nurkic is just 5-4-1 (40%TS%) but already in the first 10 games in Portland, he is 15-10-4 (59%TS%). The last 10 games in Denver, Beasley is just 10-2-2 (47%TS%) but already in the first 10 games in Minnesota, he is 21-5-2 (60%TS%). The last 10 games in Denver, Juancho is just 4-4 (43%TS%) but already in the first 10 games in Minnesota, he is 14-7 (59%TS%). Malone knows how to made some youngsters look bad and create toxic encirclement around him. But the question is what is the point of fighting against own players and killing the team's assets for making them look bad, so the team can't use that player because he is in war with the coach, and the team can't trade him for the realistic price because his value is so damaged by Malone winning that dirty game. Such things should not exist in real life on the NBA pro-level, it is not soap opera or some high-school team where things are too personal.
And let's be clear, Porter is not right about this, this is not the way you should the speak out publically, and while he's feeling that the coaches badly handling with him during this playoff was correct, he can't be more wrong about asking for less Jokic and Murray in Denver's offense. The solution is not less Joker and Murray and more rest of the team, but more Porter and less the rest of the team. MPJ yesterday was 5-8, the rest of the team (excluding Jokic and Murray) was 5-22. In 2nd half yesterday (note that we lost this game already in 12-26 1st quarter, not in 2nd half), I was partly also disappointed in Jokic and Murray which control the ball, for listening all the time Malone calls and constantly give the advantage to less talented offensive options over Porter again and again. They are franchise players under the max contract, Malone for sure will not replace Jokic with Vonleh and Murray with Dozier because they ignored his orders a few times, he is not that crazy.
Personally, this is the last thing I want to see at the end of the season. Instead of basis and road to stardom of future BIG3 project in Denver, we have potentially bad blood in the locker room already.
