Lackluster defense. The offense is not fluent. Gotta start playing some basketball.

Got to wonder if we pissed someone off with the lack of free throws

AD's play on defense hasn't looked anywhere near that of an actual defensive player of the year thus far. It does appear he's taking it easy out there, which is fine this early into the season.

Honestly they haven't called many fouls in total this game. It feels weird after watching Trae draw so many in a single game.

I think we will give you guys a bit more fight in the 3rd before you guys eventually put us away in the 4th. Love your team though even if it is a bit of an off game for you.

Kuz might very well have the worst hands on the entire team. Dude literally cannot dribble.

Well, that was a game we could have given up early in the second quarter and been down 20+ at the half. Instead, we fought back. Our starts have been so bad.

Let's hope shots will start to fall in for AD in the second half.

But overall, both LeBron and AD are still more than not in off-season form and mentality.

Yeah, I don't see the intensity from AD at all. He's coasting for sure.

I wonder if AD and LeBron got into Dion Waiters' stash before the game. Yikes.

Man THT is only 20 years old. Plays so much older than his age.

THT is way too predictable going to his right. He'll need to work on his left hand in the offseason.

LeBron and AD are literally falling all over, fumbling the ball all over, missing layups, etc. Hilarious. They're drunk.

Coasting is fine i guess for first 3 quarters keep it within range and then tighten up and try to win it in the 4th.
I could see that as their season plan for the first 20 or 30 games perhaps.

I can see playoff AD and bron emerging right around the 40th game mark.

I mean, for this season as well, does home court really mean anything ? Just get into a top 4 seed so you don't end up playing all the tough teams every round.
