He isn't in a single positive two-man line up. Neither is Paul (again, he has that 0.4). How interesting is it that Booker and Paul together is one of our worst two-man lineups and they have over 250 minutes together?

The Cams show up in 10 of our top 20 line ups, and only twice are they in a negative line up. higher ratio than anyone, by far. (although Saric does show up in only 2 and is positive for both)
Yeah but... Top 12 Indy! That's not bad.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

We're really like two different teams. The bench plus Book are the bubble team playing fast and loose and winning while CP and Jae with the other starters feels slower and more deliberate but losing. I don't know if replacing Jae in the starting lineup with Cam is the answer but Monty sounds like he's gotta try something. I wouldn't think Crowder would mind playing off the bench but who knows. You also don't want to mess up a good thing with the bench either.

I hate to say it's still early because it is but we're also getting to the point where it won't be anymore. The good news is that we seem to have the kind of group to keep working and figure it out instead of going off the rails. And as much as you pay CP for his on court production, hopefully he proves his worth off the court and in the lockerroom now.

This is why I don't think a starting lineup change is what's necessary. The issues primarily lie with our "big 3."

Just call your doc or what? My mother is in her late 80’s with COPD and was asking how to get it and I had no answer other than call her doctor.

Despite Book not scoring like crazy and turning over the ball, he doesn't seem to be the problem. I think Ayton, Paul and Jae are not great fits (in that order).

We are already 15% through the season IF they play all 72 games.

I think Jae has been exactly as advertised.

Book was not up to his usual standard in general until the last few games

I have a suspicion that none of Paul, Booker or Ayton anticipated the season starting when it did and they were all behind on their offseason workout plans. Remember, most people thought the season would be starting in February or March.

Chris Paul definitely wasn't ready. I remember when we he was talking about the trade going down, his exact quote was something like "I started thinking what it would take to get ready for the season." At the time, I thought it was odd.

Did this even happen? I feel like it was a Planet Orange shared dreaming experience a la Inception.

That guy looks to be in much better shape than the version we’re watching.

I feel like my brain has a recollection of this actually happening but there's no way with the guy I've been watching this season that he could do that.

Wizards have multiple positives on the roster...there’s some evidence that they were the source of like 4 or 5 teams getting hit with the contact tracing protocols

Cap: I wouldn’t. Somebody remember to check this post in five years and see which of us looks the fool.

Ya the wizards players do and our guys have to sit out for a week because of contact with a positive player.
