  1. Well the one I want to hear about is how Trae didn’t really like Pierce
  2. This had to happen to figure out how to go about this roster this summer and what to do with collins
  3. I don’t think anyone in here has a problem blaming Trae . He sucked ass tonight however the biggest issue all season long has been Pierce . we can blame Trae tonight but it’s not like Trae hasn’t had good games and we still lose same goes for collins and others . Pierce is the biggest issue right now and until he’s replaced there’s not much you can really point fingers at. We been losing down the stretch on games even when Trae can make some shots down the stretch. We lose or get down big in games the same way ....that’s a coaching issue . I just want this roster to get a shot at hav
  4. Yeah it’s very overblown...Trae protects these guys offensively on most nights. Who’s to say Trae doesn’t have tired legs offensively. Supes is fed up that’s all it is. I’d much rather we do something about Pierce before making big roster moves
  5. Sure....all those guys are better than every other player on this team too. So what’s the point?
  6. Need a better offensive scheme. Pierce offense is non existent. The players don’t know what to do vs certain defensive looks. Pierce also doesn’t seem to know how to get players open consistently enough. Some of this is due to injuries but most is Pierce failure to get the players to understand exactly what this offense is all about . players can be blamed too of course to a certain extent
  7. Very true. You can’t make trades when this team hasn’t been healthy all season, the chemistry isn’t there, no training camp , no real practices, major injuries to key players, and we need a coach who knows how to use all these weapons . If schlenk does make a trade of any significance giving away one of our core players it will be very questionable. Just too many what if’s going on right now . I don’t feel like we know what team and roster could fully do
  8. Trae didn’t do good tonight but regardless we keep losing games the same way. This team can’t score consistently and when defenses are trapping Trae they still look loss. It’s getting old. trae and collins need to figure out how to make themselves better in fourth quarters down the stretch and LP need to figure out how to put Trae and collins in better scoring situations when we really need those pts. Hunter will help out a lot of this once he returns healthy but we are likely still to see issues. I really hate LPs offense

    Coaching!

    Love point #1....and excellent response to all of them but point number 1 really need to get cemented in folks head . I can only see this changing if Hunter comes back and provides Trae some relief and if collins can learn to score at will on his own more often. Pierce biggest failure here is the way this offense was ran being given all this talent

    Gallinari

    Gallo need more than 3 attempts from beyond arc per game! He needs to up that avg to about 6. He’s too good of a shooter for just 3 attempts from 3....Come on LP & Staff!
  11. He’s really off these last 2-3 games
  12. Upsetting to watch the hawks fold like this and even more upsetting to wonder if we truly need more offense or not! with Hunter and Bogi both not playing right now we are missing scoring talent right there but even then the offensive scheme is horrible! We need a offensively talented coach really bad. hard to judge these players under LP in my opinion. We shouldn’t be a avg or below avg offensive team but here we are
  13. This is really bad...even if Trae was dropping buckets like last game we’d still be down alot Everyone else outside of capela and Trae has literally missed everything
  14. Let’s go Trae ...start taking more shots. This team can’t survive with you deferring. and come on collins you’re better then this !
  15. I’m not trying to be a downer on the squawk but Pierce and this staff is to blame for Trae and collins (throw in Hunter) not getting more votes especially Trae . All star games especially today are about offense...you have to design and run a scheme that gets your best scorers the chance to score! Pierce and his staff doesn’t do that. Trae stuck out last season because he wasn’t being restricted and allowed to showcase his best abilities. fix the offense and Trae will always be a starter in the all star games
  16. Can’t place all the blame on Trae. Instead of making Trae a passer they should have designed a scheme to get Trae, Collins and now Hunter (our best 3 scorers) better scoring opportunities. when Trae has so called ran LPs scheme its great he has fewer turnovers high number assist but that version of Trae is not making high end impact like scoring and attacking Trae. The superstar player has to be threat scoring wise especially if that’s his best tool. Whether efficient or not trae needs to stay in the mindset of being a scoring threat and making the right play once attacking no matte
  17. Yeah he was also handed a top 3 seed eastern conference team ...bad comparison. LP biggest issue is not acknowledging or taking blame. He’s coaching as if there’s nothing wrong with what he’s doing. Like his schemes are proven . If we were losing and he was taking blame and trying to implement new stuff I’d wouldn’t be ready to push him out as quickly cause the effort to get better is there.
  18. No not putting up a bunch of shots just to shoot but being aggressive as a scorer THEN a passer. This team is better when Trae is looking for his shot then the pass second. He’s not going to have efficient games every night until we get a more organized offensive scheme. There are things you can do to help Traes turnovers. One is getting Hunter back healthy as he’s starting to prov that he doesn’t need to be setup to have scoring impact on the game. Hunter is figuring out how to attack down hill and take advantage of his matchups on a regular basis. Then we have collins who I don’t feel c
  19. May have to live with some things...doesn’t matter as long as we win Lol I think more are coming to the dark side but even if they are doesn’t change the fact that LP is back after next game running the show
  20. We won tonight didn’t we?
  21. I’m glad McMillan gets another opportunity to coach if that happens. I want to see how Nate plans to deal with it from a scheme standpoint
  22. Collins seems so mad . I get he mad the 3pt foul but even coming into the game he didn’t seem happy. if there’s one thing Nate mad a mistake on tonight IF you want to call it a mistake is that he had uncle hill in over collins in crunch time and I’m not sure collins is feeling that decision.
  23. I really hate to tell y’all this but Traes turnovers is just apart of the impact he provides In other words we are going to have deal with it IF we want aggressive Trae. I’m never ok with turnovers but as long as Trae is impacting the game and the turnovers don’t come at wrong times I feel like this group (healthy) can survive his turnovers
