Don't sleep on Mcgee. I know you all are hyped on Howard, but Mcgee is the one too watch :)

He needs to attack the paint if his three isn't going in.

Our 3 ball has sucked this year so far. If we can get our shots to start going in, we're unstoppable.

Lol that guy from Lethal ruined what little semblance of a jumpshot Kuz had.

He played OK when he was in, he just wasn't as effective as McGee this game... Just a situational thing. I expect he'll get burn in the 4th.

God damn. If we could just make some wide open looks, this game wouldn't even be close.

This is an enormous if. We have a lot of mediocre-to-poor shooters on this team. Which is too bad because, yeah, we don't have many other glaring weaknesses.

I just don't see what Cook brings to the table... completely useless.

Other than dunks Caruso is also pretty useless as a shooter.

Good night Kuz. If he's not going to be aggressive then there's not point. I'd much rather have him pull up from the mid-range in motion than settling for those threes when it's clearly not falling for him.

Kuz had a really nice looking shot as a Rookie... I have no idea why he didn't just work on improving it instead of focusing on a post game and taking guys off the dribble his second season... Injuries were a part of it but I think the biggest thing was he wanted to steal the starting spot from Ingram, and didn't think he could do it just being a jump shooter... Honestly, I think he was wrong.

Since then he's just not been good, and his shot isn't as pretty either. So I don't know if you can put a finger on one thing...

But it shouldn't be that hard to get it back.

I remember all the talk in the offseason Kuz changing his form. Looks the same to me.
