He is but right now with IT gone and RJeff gone, they don't have too many options. If they go small with Bron/Crowder starting, their only backup SF is Green and unless they want to go super small and play JR/Shump at 3 then they're stuck for now.

Playoff rotations should be a little bit better:

42.5 Bron
35 Love
35 Crowder
30 Wade
30 IT
25 Thompson
20 Rose
15 JR

Then Korver/Shump sparingly.

JR needs to get those minutes.
Hopefully Lue wakes up later in the season. It's doubtful though.

KD looks like a guy who knows he could only win rings on a team like the Warriors.

If IT comes back 100% then I agree, otherwise I think their mean expectation declined somewhat with a much larger variation thanks to the amount of garbage on the roster and a coach that cannot be trusted to not try and use that garbage.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2017-18

All this Golden State hate makes me cringe, I used to be that guy.

Imo you can't fault guys sacrificing personal gain to win. Props to KD for changing his game when he could have just slept walked his way to some chips.

JR needs at least 30 minutes and that is too many minutes for wade and rose. They probably need to add another player to the rotation if they want a shot.

when IT comes back and Lue realizes Wade can't play anymore they can hope to get back on that level

Re: NBA Season Thread 2017-18

Yeah JR playing ~30 mpg is more likely. Wade/Rose maybe 20 mpg each?

Has some different angles of the Hayward injury. I don’t think the ground broke his ankle. If you look at it close it looks like it breaks with the contact with either Lebron or the other player. I think it was already broken when he came down on it.

Re: NBA Season Thread 2017-18

I think the Cavs are worse than last year even though Crowder next to Bron seems like a great fit. Type of guy Bron has needed for years.

However, does it matter? They're winning the East and then the Warriors are owning them unless Hou/OKC can beat them. How much better/worse the Cavs are than last year only seems like it matters if Hou/OKC pull an upset.
