    First 6-7 min of the game if they need to start Russ, they should do AD at the 5 then keep Russ with the bench unit and a center the rest of the game.

    Thomas Bryant had a career year with Russ and Aquaman looked border line allstar with Russ.

    Russ needs his Gronk down low and his snipers outside which we have options for him.

    Coaches will figure this out I think
    Thatís the whole deal with the experiment. These guys need snipers. Bringing him in to play with the bench is not what you want and I am sure itís not something he wants. If that the case then they made a huge costly mistake. They just will have to play small and fast and get some shooting in there. I know they are trying to buy time with Dj in there but he does not fit. Either Dj or Westbrook have to be replaced with a shooter and that person have to be Dj

    Dj does not fit for the same exact reasons he was a net negative with Nets and they had better shooters. He is also not a post player that will cause teams to double him. They also have to keep Melo healthy since he is the only one that can play the 4 off the bench. Maybe Ariza can? Dj like Lebron like Russell like rondo like AD is best fitted with a team that have shooters. The only way I can see it working is playing fast.

    We lose one game and we are bringing back players.

    Good post. The coaching staff just needs to adapt to Russ. Lebron also needs to defer to him early. When Russ is not in it then he mentally checks out.

    was never a fan of Dj over Dre at this point In their careers. Thatís nuts.

    And no

    Was pointing out Dre,Davis,Lebron,buddy,? Would have more of a natural fit and gel faster than as constructed. As is itís not a natural fit and well take more effort into making it work. It donít make it any easier when you have no floor spacing. Your asking stars to do something differently than they have done up to this point and at the same time telling them to be themselves. When was Lebron ever the best shooter? When was Westbrook ask to hit 3 pointers shots on the weak side or better yet play off the ball?

    So they are going to role with Russell decision making or Lebrons decision making? Russell do not play an efficient style of ball. And once again Lebron took 11 3 pointers trying to open the lane. He missed his open shots and it had times he got to the rim and left it short. He was also a turn over machine up to this point leading from preseason. How does that fall on Lebron. Itís up to Russell to get it done. The pressure is on him to fit and make it work. Russell have to adopt not the other way around.

    Ask these questions in December. The way players have to play is always the coacheís responsibility.

    It seems that they still need some negative big there! Bucks just killed them in opening night! Our shooters have been out for a while.

    In case you missed it, they already made that decision while back.

    ok gotcha. Lakers went for star power instead. Russ becomes much more valuable if either Lebron or AD go down. Then our team doesn't lose much. But Hield can't do that. I think that's why they went for Russ. They wanted to take usage away from Lebron and also a great insurance policy. Lebron had that score first mentality last game and the rotations did not help Russ by any means. I feel that the coaching staff was more into showcasing Lebron instead of trying to involve Russ. Don't know why. Let's see what they come up with the next game.

    If you have a point guard that was an ex MVP in this league you have to let him do his stuff. It's not as important at the beginning of games to have Russ handle the ball and be the main decision maker. The dude was the assists leader last year. He has become a very good decision maker during the early portion of the game. It's his late stuff that's debatable. That's when you have Lebron handle the ball.
