Lol we don't need Tyrus.
Lol we don't need Tyrus.
Maybe he dressed up as the Scarecrow and went to see the Wizard during his time off.
Ya never know.

i feel tyrus will be a change of pace and before he was injured he was putting up some quality mins.
also did anybody notice during the lakers game , that the lakers were in the penalty for about 2 mins and nobody attacked the basket; just horrible coaching.

i'm not pushing any panic button but this stretch has been maddening. The 2 themes have been blown big leads or getting decked. The blown leads bug me less because of the "learning to win" thing which I understand. But the getting destroyed stuff needs to end. Sure, it happens occasionally but roughly half of the games during this 13 game stretch? That's pretty bad. We have the worst point differential in the league and give up the most points in the league.

Too far off topic?
There have just been a couple major problems for the cats over this 13 game losing streak that need to be addressed via coaching and talent acquisition:
1. Dribble penetration - We give up WAY to much dribble drives, and drive/kick opportunities. It's been killing us on defense and gets everyone out of position on help defense. Also the thing is all of our guards/wings are culpable. I've seen everyone from Kemba, to Taylor, Hendo and MKG give up way too many.
2. Our Bigs are creampuff soft. Biz has been trying and making good strides, but outside of him everyone else sucks. i also hate to say it, but this could be where Tyrus would help a bit. He seemed to have more fight in him on the defensive end on the block.
3. Except for Kemba and Sessions when he's hot, all of our guys have some sort of serious offensive limitation. let me explain.
Hendo: Can't really drive by his man. Isolation with him comes down to him back his man down and taking a difficult turnaround jumpshot.
Taylor: Same hendo prolem in that he's not really the type to take his man off the dribble and get to the basket. he's also not a good outside shooter yet, he's decent sometime but not good.
MKG: Lack of a jumpshot helps teams sag off him to stop the dribble drive, also gives teams a a man who can do more on help defense because MKG is no threat out side of 15 feet. Once he improves that shot he can eventually be a 20ppg scorer.
Gordon: Can shoot but lacks height, also not as explosive as Kemba so can't consistently get to the basket.
Let's not even get into our big men offensive deficiencies.
We need guys like MKG and taylor to really work hard in the offseason to get rid of those deficiencies. it will make us a much more potent offense. We also have to find a good big man somewhere.
Bring back Tyrus they said
He is a key player on defense they said
