Zubac has taken another step forward since the restart and is now a legit 25+ mpg NBA center. Trezz was killing it right before the break in March but I just ran across these tweets from a few days ago:

I've been saying he's a basket case emotionally since his grandmother's death but MAN, I had no idea... :sad:



His emotions are understandable but a lot of his issues are things that showed signs of during the regular season. You saw the numbers that the team had issues closing against starting quality guys using Harrell if it was close. Kawhi’s numbers were down and net ratings were poor he’s just not big enough.

Look at all the teams in the west we will have to battle with long term and they all have size and even GSW will have more size next year



Trezz EARNED every minute Doc gave him up until the break in March. NOBODY wants a 6'7" center. And Doc probably gave Zu a few more minutes than he earned to develop him as an NBA center. The Lakers treated him like dogshhit and gave him away for nothing.

Doc's faith in both PAID OFF. He's a players' coach. Trezz became 6MOY and now Zu is a true NBA starting center.

There's no BUT about Trezz's mental state. Doc has given him every chance to return to form because WE NEED HIM and won't beat the Lakers without him. J-Myke is inconsistent garbage and Zu can't play 40 minutes. But as we see, Trezz is probably clinically depressed.

Read on Twitter



You know, sometimes there's no way out. I'm not going to tell you that maybe some other coach couldn't have somehow done better. Found some way out. But I think NOT ONE Clipper is gonna blame Doc for this meltdown, and even if he is to blame, he did the right thing.

The BLM, the team culture, Lou and the tittybar, Trezz's emotional breakdown.

Just calling it as I see it. For better or worse, winning the title is clearly NOT the most important thing to this Clippers squad, and that includes the owner and the coach too. And maybe they're right. They all get paid regardless.

You know, I learn something every day. For LeBron this is now or never. For the rest of the NBA, the 2020-21 season starts in a little over 3 months. A do-over.

If Trez is not feeling good,put Noah in. I am sure he could get 6 points,some rebounds and play some defense.

Maybe Trez would bounce back vs the Lakers but we won't know if we are sent packing today...

Come on bro. JMyke is inconsistent garbage? He's given us that timely bucket over and over. All of a sudden his ass is stapled to the bench with Trez back and he gets a few minutes here and there. WTF is he supposed to give you? Play him consistently for 18 plus a game. He's a rhythm player. Good defender and has a good 3 point shot.

Esqtvd is only saying that because Doc keeps playing Trez instead of JMyke and he feels the need to defend everything Doc ever does. He'll make toxic comments about any player who's in Doc's doghouse, then still have the audacity to accuse others of "douchebagging players" and "hating their own team." It's blatant trolling at this point and he should be banned for it.

J-Myke was also delivered huge performance in last years Playoff matchup vs. Warriors. He was the small ball 5 we needed but discovered late.

If someone are inconsistent garbages on the team we know who they are, Lou williams-Landry Shamet, Marcus Morris and Someone's darling Trezz.

Yes, when he shows up, which is about every other game. So now JaMychal is the savior? Well, I hope so now.

He shows up every other game which would be how Doc calls his number. And that's about 75% better than Trez. :)

The problem with J-Myke is not suckage, it's that he just disappears for long stretches.


As for Trezz--already stipulated that he's a basket case. Already postulated Doc has been trying to get him going because we probably can't win the title without him. Already agreed that in Game 7, that's a bad idea. Throw something--anything--at the wall and hope it sticks. J-Myke? Sure, why not.

And don't forget Pat Bev, who was our 3rd-highest salary until we traded for Marcus and who's gotten a big pass around here. Add in all the dogging and mocking of "Playoff P" and that's 2/3 of our rotation. :wink:

i'm pretty over patrick beverley's over-aggressive bulldog, foulout defense. this team needs a real starter at point guard so he can stick to the bench, where IMO he's a million times better off.

You are a troll. You derail every game thread with the same tired shtick and then project it onto others. Those are the facts.

At this point, sure. But it was reasonable to try to get Trezz's 28 pg/18 ppg back on track. Meanwhile, hardly anyone else has done much either. We're running out of scapegoats.

All true. He missed almost all of 2017-18 and was crap until the about the all-star break in 2018-19. Plus he's not a true PG and at 6'0" is best D-ing up on the ball, not in a straight-up man-to-man or switching. Plus he makes $12M a year, 4th behind KL PG, and Marcus. Not great value there for us. :(
