Butler on Rose taking facial elbow: "Didn’t really see the play. I was probably too busy waiting for the ball to come back to me."
3:07 PM - 29 Sep 2015


Lol I don't know if I'm reading too much into that but....

He's good as like a 10th man. You can get by with that from him. A solid 15 minutes.

Starter? He'll disappoint you forever.

Because he'll have moments where it looks like this guy has all the tools then he stumbles into a Not Top 10 play and realize he has every tool, but can never put them together.

 

This is perhaps true.

 

However my caveat is that with the players the Clippers have on their team, he'll probably hover around 20 minutes anyway if that. Whether he starts or not. However, there's something to be said about Someone like wes playing as a starter with CP, Blake, JJ and Deandre. You are right, he isn't that good which is why he may look better playing with elite guys. Perhaps him playing with the Clippers starters will be best for him. There's no reason why he cant duplicate what Matt did last year, albeit not from a pure production standpoint since he'll most certainly play less.

 

But this is all null and void to me because I don't think Doc will pull the trigger and start wes over paul pierce anyway

You may be right that he won't end up being the full-time starter, but he's going go start a fair number of games regardless. I see Doc pulling a Pop and just resting Pierce some games.

True. For sure. He definitely is just going to sit him out some games, especially during the 2nd half of the season. But whenever Paul isn't resting and sitting, I think he'll be the starter.

The Bulls fans that took issue with his press conference yesterday, yea, I feel bad for them.

 

The ones that didn't take issue with him preparing for Free Agency as opposed to preparing for a Healthy season, nah man, this is what life does to you.

I'm going to let Rose live though...I'm off that topic for good

 

Godspeed Derrick

Dont put that on me. Not feeling sorry for a certain group of fans doesn't say he deserves an injury.

You can do better Amel

What about Mike Dunleavy and his back surgery
Kyrie glass knees
Shumpert getting his rap career going on after his wrist injury

There's bigger injuries stories than Rose's

Jared Dudley:

"Remember Adam Morrison? He never took showers, he did the chewing tobacco that he spit all the time, and he wore the same three polos the whole year. This is a guy who made a lot of money, too, at that time. He was the face of diabetes, he was doing everything, he was on the cover of college games, he was [everywhere], and he was by far the worst and [most] disgusting."

I was always saying pau still had juice left, mda just grossly misused and antagonize him. Good luck with wes tho

At one point he was surrounded by nash kobe pau. He just seems like one of those guys that hoops because he's tall. He's a nice enough guy and always says the right things there's just something off. Dude trains with kobe in the summer, seems aware that an nba career isn't guaranteed and just never seems to get any better. It was hilarious how everyone would try to turn him into this defensive stopper, every interview they would slip in some subliminal about his defensive potential and it just never materialized. He's fully aware of how he's perceived and once was quoted saying you're gonna see a new wes johnson from now on, more fired up or whatever but outside a few cuss words it was more of the same. That's the kinda thing that makes you give up on a guy and just accept that he is what he's shown you. I really don't get the idea that he'll play better with cp3 etc when you guys have been struggling at the 3 spot for a minute. None of the other 3s seemed to benefit playing with the rest of the clipper starters.
