LOL, what else can they do?

They are playing G leaguer and guys they signed up few days ago

Players dont tank

What is so hard to understand?

:crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

Instead of signing g leaguers that have something to prove, how about keeping the ones we know that suck (Jordan Bone, Gary Clark, Karim Mane) and play them for 35+ mpg. That is what OKC is doing.

And what about the fact that we have won a lot of games since Cliff went down?

Because the Thunder will be horrible next year as well, and Orlandos management has visions of mediocrity for next year's squad (maybe an Orlando 35-47 record is their expectation).

In that, Orlando is auditioning players for their bench next year. And so far, Wagner looks good to get inked to ore than a pre-season deal.

Missing out on Cade & co to audition bench players 10-15th, with the vision of being mediocrity next year aka again not drafting a star.

Sounds like a WeHam plan :lol:

So we pretend we have more than 1 nba level starter on playoff team?
It's Isaac and bunch of bench players on playoff teams.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.

People in our fanbase sending rage tweets to 20-year-olds and blaming them for playing hard and trying to win games shows a level of ignorance I wasn't expecting. Flat out embarrassing.

The Thunder will probably be better than us next year. They have SGA and Dort, Pokusevski is developing nicely, they will have a high lottery pick too, and I don't think they can afford to tank for another year, they are the smallest market.

They are 16-19 this season in the games SGA has played.

That is pretty unbelievable. I'm absolutely livid at the FO but how can anyone be mad at the players?

Yea SGA is one of the biggest positive impact players in the leaque. SGA alone is enough to finish around 50% in the hard western conference. He's a player we hope to get in the top 4.

I try to avoid social media in general. I hope its not too bad. Despite my rants about our last games, i still enjoyed watching the young guys have good games. My critic goes only at WeHam.

It's Twitter, there are always a few complete jerks who say the most vile stuff possible.

This, Iike Cole and his swagger is fun but it kind of reminds me of that Jimmy Kimmel interview with Kobe after he retired where he showed Kobe a video of some young Laker players going off celebrating a win when the team sucked and Kobe had the biggest look of disgust on his face. I get being hype on the game winner but Cole is likely going to end up humbled here sooner or later.

His head is way too big. He'll just think "next time". It's why he's a chucker.

All of this hate for wins and I understand it, but we have a a few young legit NBA talented players in Cole, JI, Chuma, Fultz. We also have some players with the potential to be really special in RJ, WCJ, and Bamba. We have two picks this draft and unless we get the #1 pick I think we end up selecting one player in the first round and trade the other pick if it conveys. The future is much brighter now that it was a year ago in my opinion. No more buddy ball and it is a pleasure to see AG elsewhere only scoring 10ppg acting like he deserves a max contract.

These young kids have experienced a lot of losing this year and it makes you mad that these guys who are all working hard might be excited that they've won some games recently?

C'mon now.

I’m just hoping for top 5. Top 3 is too much to ask from this team.

It's hard to digest it....but I'd rather find out we have a diamond in the rough and get a slightly worst chance at a pick that still isn't a 100% guarantee.... Than to think they are trash going into the summer and thinking we are deficient all over. Ideally... We find out we have great players but still lose by a hair. Lol
