Beal is unvaccinated also and JI probably talked to him about it.

That’s definitely what they talked about.

:lol:

Also, I'm pretty sure Beal quietly got the vaccine recently as it was going to be a mandate in the DC area.

Pretty sure they play in Maryland, but yeah I guess he got vaccinated.

I used to be a defender for Bamba, but I'm out on him. He sucks. We should see what we can get for him at deadline. Maybe package him with either Ross or Harris.

That final play was not pretty but also dont like Cole's body language. You been bricking all game, you dont get to call shots when you havent been playing good. But I do wish Franz showed more initiative. It looked like he was nervous for first time.

Last game I called Cole Steve Francis. I was a bit off. He's more like a homeless mans Allen Iverson.

The team very consciously chose not to activate Cole Anthony Time tonight. He was wide open on the inbounds and in movement and he got looked off the entire time. He didn’t look happy when Franz took the easy 2 on the play prior either.

I feel like a lesson in valuing touches and looks was learned between last night and tonight.

Cole is like Kevin Harts character from Think like a man when his he wants to play Ron Artest and Mat Barnes to "win court" , all his friends are like hdf you think you are?".

Regarding Cole not looking happy about the easy 2, it was a set play. Cole doesn't look angry when you watch the clip again but he is off-screen for a moment so maybe he shows some negative emotion at that point. Were you at the game where you noticed something? Or did you notice him being **** when the play was drawn up for someone else or maybe even earlier?

Anyway, the clip is below. Watch Mosley in the timeout. He puts his marker where the inbound pass is coming from and runs it to the backcourt on his clipboard, where Franz will be. He then moves his hand forward as if to signify "straight to the rim" and says something in Franz's direction. Franz gives him a subtle nod.

They run exactly this with Cole setting Franz a screen. Franz doesn't use the screen and Dinwiddie either concedes the two points or he completely **** it up. Probably the latter.

It's doubtful Cole would be **** about how the play turned out when he knew what would happen ahead of time unless he showed his displeasure when he first found out what was going to happen, which could have been before Mosley talked to everyone.

Yeah, I don't see much there. Cole sets a pick, Franzs doesn't use it and he scores. And I agree if Cole were upset about the play he would have voiced it in huddle when it was set up. In a set play like that he knew what was coming and really can't be upset.

**Cole is like Jekyll and Hyde...he can shoot you into and out of a game....still has a problem with OVERDRIBBLING just letting the clock tick away without running a single action....that sh t has to stop, i'm getting sick of cole doing that....you're not Dame Lillard...Spida Mitchell...those guys can do that, even though they don't because they have a coach running an actual fully realized offensive scheme....JUST RUN THE OFFENSE COLE...there will be times when you're cooking, at those times by all means let it fly but when you have nothing going just run the offense....the ball will come back to you and who knows it might get you some easy looks**

**Another thing, even though ross had it going it seems like the T-Ross offense never dies lol...he makes one bucket or two we start force feeding him and nothing else matters....it's T-Ross or nothing offense, patented by Steve Clifford**

**Bamba....man on man....i tried to keep some hope for you man but it's not looking real good for you...If the shot is not falling it's like you don't know how to do anything else to affect the game.....yeah man bamba might be on the first thing smoking outta here**

**Chuma, don't know what happened to him it's like space jam and someone took his powers away...don't know what's going on with him**

**We need to get these injured players back because we got players in roles they are not really suited for**

Year and half of rebuild and we are looking at body language of player because he didn't get last shot on 7-34 team. Yea bad habbits already growing deep as "I eat first " mentality is spreading.

I don't know you guys and Cole, but i just have strong D'angelo Russell / Stephano Marbury vibe. They will get his 18-6 even 22-6 but those 22 points won't be within pace of offense and those 6 -7 assists won't make anybody around them better.

Nah it was just on the replays they show a baseline angle which showed Cole’s face after Franz scored and Cole looked more confused than anything. Even during the play whilst Franz was attacking to score Cole was looking at the ref, maybe trying to get an off-ball foul called?

It just seemed a very different sort of energy in that situation, where a basket has brought the team within 1 point received little fanfare. He’s usually a hugely emotional supporter of other players in similar moments in prior games, so it just seemed odd he wasn’t enthused.

That said, Ross was telling the team to lock back in straight away so that was probably it. No time to celebrate. He was probably just staying focused in that moment which is great and I’m mischaracterising what went on.

The Magic failed to rebound during crucial situations last night, that was the biggest key of this one in the clutch. One was just Beal outhustling Magic players, the other was just getting beat on the boards. Bamba is just not a good basketball player. I don't care his measurements, lengths, whatever, he has no idea and desire to be a productive basketball player.

After watching last night's game, I'm out on Bamba.. include him and his improved motor and defensive freedom in whatever trade trade package..

Tallest dude on the floor and I just shook my head as he was being pushed around by 6 foot- nothing guards..

I'd imagine others in the league see the same so I wouldn't think his value is that high but get watch you can get at this point

Maybe i missed something but Anthony didnt create any efficient look last night. Not for himself, not for others. I dont know if its ankles bothering him, but he cant get separation from anyone right now. I hope Fultz shows something or we are a team full of guards without any good backcourt combination ( maybe we should play Ross and Harris 48 minutes, ehh times change ;)
Okeke looked fine, he always needs some time to get going. If his shot ever returns he will be a plus player.
Goodbye Vucevic, welcome lotttery picks !!!
Happysad.
