I knew Batum was bad this season, but the math is damning considering how much he is paid. He is easily the player most responsible for the team underperforming. I really hope a new coach can get more out of him going forward.
Clifford leaned on Batum too much when it wasn’t even necessary and played him despite being injured when we had a valuable replacement in Lamb.
The same way I blame Clifford for playing a hampered and injured Batum in the playoffs that cost us Game 6 against the Heat in Charlotte when it was clear that he couldn’t move well enough to defend anyone.
They will wage war against the Lamb but the Lamb will triumph them because he is Lord of lords and King of kings - and with him will be his called, chosen and faithful followers." Revelation 17:14 (NIV)
