Honestly man.. I really want to agree with you. But think of it like this.

The game's on a Sunday at 5:00 PM CST on a Sunday afternoon. I assume they had COVID-19 testing which means they didn't have a shoot around, especially with it being a mid-day game. Which means they probably sat around and watched football all morning, like the rest of us.

Add to that: No crowd. Zero energy in the building. The only persons voice I've heard all game is Harrell.

Like, this has to be super weird. The fact that they're even leading in the fourth quarter is completely crazy to me.


Only glanced at the memphis game, but if AD was off then this wouldn't be the first time. Against Portland I think it was, AD looked disinterested. Can't make excuses for him. They're all going through the same thing, but some guys bring it every night.

They also played an average team missing TWO of their best players, I can't help to wonder if they were better off not playing him and/or Lebron for games like this.

I definitely think Lebron should sit out some games, but he's said that he's going to play if he's able.

It’s easier to keep going and stay in shape at his age. Rest him the curry way of lower minutes. He also can’t catch Kareem sitting out games tbh

Yeah, he's definitely not gonna keep that up, but I would like to see him being a litlle more consistent. Out of the 7 games he played he went 0-2 from downtown 5 times. He did have that crazy hot game against SA which did wonders for his %.
