mudiay went out lookin like steph curry in the first half..... then looked like ronnie brewer in the second :lol:


Typical Mudiay as always. Dude is just way too inconsistent to be a starter. Just give Trey 5 games. I don't get why he got 15 minutes.


keep try where he is I don't need anymore scares. He scores a ton in short period of times. He doesn't defend but thats better than Mudiay who usually can't score and can't defend. At this point I just want to lose out. We should be changing nothing right now :lol:

Dame Lillard doesn't defend either. Burke isn't Rose on D, either so lets stop acting like he doesn't at least try on D.

For sure but Troy is more of a 3. Our 4 rotation is Beasley or Lance Thomas, unless you prefer Hicks who is also trash, we really have nothing going for us. Like he said, pick your scrub

the teams exposed him on switches in that entire 4th qtr. And lillard has gotten significantly better on defense this year. He's not good on defense but he isn't a target for the opposition. carlisle is a great coach he was going at Beasley and Trey down the stretch almost every possession. Trying to get switches and mismatches and they were scoring at will even when trey was dropping buckets.

He played 15 minutes...he scores a great amount but he doesn't defend and doesn't pass. And Rose barely could even get a job in the NBA because of his sucky defense and black hole tendencies on offense so that isn't a great way to prop up trey.

The issues are there. He's not the answer but he pretty damn exciting scoring for himself. He can shoot it thats for sure.

Kemba is what 5'11? And he's shown to be a + defender. Maybe w better coaching, he'd be a better defender as energy isn't the issue. I rather play him than Mudiay.

I want SGA in the draft as he's a 6'6 PG, but I'd like to see what Trey can do starting for a few games.

We kept and even added more vets.

i just don't see the point. Mudiay horribly inconsistent shooting is great for the tank. Nothing we do at this point will do anything. Just secure the best pick possible.

I like SGA....I prefer a few other prospects in our range but I don't think he would be a bad option either. But status quo is great. losses are more important then finding things we already know about our guys. Im not even mad frank played 16 mins at this point when he balled out in the 1st half. Jeff getting his hands on anyone wont do anything. Just lose that is goal #1 now with so few games left.

he got vision but needs to improve there.he got that killer instinct tho as a scorer which makes him so intriguing. we need that badly.

He does have that, but Idk if he has vision. I believe in his penetration, but 1/10 what would you rate his burst/athleticism?

If Wall/Westbrook are 10's
Fox was a 9
Mudiay/Payton were 8's

Where would you put him? I'd say like 8.5. I don't think he's Fox fast.
