    His last 7 games heís averaging 28% FG and 17% from three. There is absolutely no reason why he has to take 12 threes today when KCP was shooting well and others where playing well.

    Like I said itís poor leadership. If youíre shot isnít falling then do other things that can help you team win. Drive to the paint, unless he is scared of airbaling another floater. Donít just jack up shots like that.

    Ok now I can agree with you on that, would love for him to drive and spot up shoot or floater, but 100% he has to keep shooting. Even if he keeps missing, 10-14shots agame is ok for me, he impacts the game so much that if he starts scoring it on. The kid just needs time SandMan, this Summer will be HUGE for his development.

    If a team plays three games in three nights, and you have them on the ropes, and the store the end the game and it's a close game, can someone please explain to me why the hell you constantly shoot threes. If they're tired and Randle is beating them on the inside and Lopez is beating them on the inside you constantly put pressure on them by beating them and making them foul you because they're fatigued. Luke as a coach isnt proving to be the smartest at end of game strategies. He's a pretty as coach and i hate it. He wants to win pretty with threes and finesse. He doesn't know how to grind games out thats wjy we lose so many close games, not all on players. Look at what Brad Steven's is doing with his youth in Boston, other than Kyrie can you say that their players are player-for-player better than ours? Kyrie has even been out the last couple of games and they're still grinding out wins against tough teams. My point is youth is not excuse, at some point coaching is supposed to bridge the gap between inexperience and talent. I get we look better this year, but I question how much of our running this year is Luke Walton or Magic Johnson wanted to bring Showtime back. The running has been great for us but the decision making in close games and substitution patterns have all been on Luke and I doesn't show his so-calledhigh intelligence for basketball.

    Iím ok with 10-14 shots a game but not 12 of them being 3 point shots especially if heís gonna go 1-12. Rather see him go to the paint and draw fouls and get the team over the limit even if he sucks at FTs.

    true but rhondo was 1-3 vs 1-12. Rhondo figured out hes not a good shooter years ago. Zo will either get better or figure it out like Rhondo. A high percentage of zo shots are open 3s. just last game all his shots were 3s 1-4.

    Iím completely good with that because I want that too, they are wide open but damn! His shot form needs to be tweaked, especially his legs/feet. Ingram was timid last year driving to the basket so Iím hoping Ball can make those strides into his sophomore year. He does suck at FT but what he said today about them is a very promising sign. I get it, sucks we lose but man, this team is so much more entertaining and better than the last 2 or so years. Weíre only going to get better with the growth of these kids and I for one have been enjoying the ride for the most part. You should come to Vegas for SummerLeague and KobeOwnsU (Mark) and I will
    Meet you there this year!

    Our lack of depth is catching up to us. We are playing a 7-8 man rotation and losing games in the 4th. It's really too bad BI and Hart went down when they did, it would have been nice to build off how we were playing to take into next season. Even during these losses though I'm happy overall, we don't come out not ready to play and go down by 20 in the first quarter like we did at the start of the year and most of last year, we are a much improved team but losing our depth is taking it's toll on our guys in these games.
