    If he isn't hitting his inefficient mid-range twos than he has no value. As we can see in the past two games 6/22.

    Hurt his ankle. It may be affecting his shot. He didn't finish the game the other night.

    I really want to see what Delly can get out of him. If he can Dion whisper to him, we might get a pick for him. Might take till next year.

    Defense was improved without him and the bench was pretty good on offense. They were destroying Pacers bench.

    İ did not watch the game but I would imagine team effort and enthusiasm went up just because of his absence.

    The team was definitely better defensively without him in there. At the same time, the Cavs certainly missed his scoring and had the Pavers not shot even worse than the Cavs (40% and 18% and terrible FT shooting) they would have quickly run away in that game. Pretty much the double-edged sword of Jordan- the defense was improved but no one else on this team can create their own shot.

    He is sort of unguardable. He can definitely beat himself and miss shots, but few teams can shut him down. The report in the playoffs was that he was not ready for how grueling it was going to be. I wonder what the real story was. If teams just scouted him well and took away what he wanted to do.

    Seemed like he got to his spots and played tight missing his shots to me. I dunno

    Clarkson is back. I was excited to watch how they would do without him but it did not last long enough.

    This guy thinks he's so much better than he actually is. 8/19 for 20 even after hitting two threes in garbage time. He is just a stat-padding chucker. It infuriates me to hear AC and Fred talk him up so much. Like why?

    I hope we can move him at the deadline. I just don't see how we can build up the team with him on the roster. He hasn't shown any growth since we got him.

    I am about to quit watching games because of him and Hood. Zizic works his ass off to get position and they would not pass to him and this happens with others too. I think it would best for him to go to Europe and be the Michael Jordan there. His defense won't be exploited as much and he would still score well or actually better.

    I just think Clarkson needs the green light to do whatever he likes and he can get hot in the process. I don't think he really has spots on the floor that he likes more than others. I think that's why he is hard to scout but he needs the volume to make an impact.

    To me it always feels like Clarkson makes and misses in clusters. For 5 shots or so he is hot then he can go ice cold for just as many.

    I'd rather have an attack of IBS than watch this guy anymore.
    Really sucks the fun out of watching the games. Never passes to anyone. Could have 3 guys on him but he doesn't care.
    Please let him be traded at least by the deadline.

    I agree. Just for building the team, I think the ceiling and development goes up if Clarkson is off the team. I think we have too many ball handlers or guys who need the ball in their hands to make an impact. Moving Clarkson, Hood, and Burks frees up ball handling duties for Sexton, Nance, and Cedi to grow their games. We will most likely use Love at the elbow when he is healthy too. Getting spot up shooters and guys that can cut to the basket could make for a better version of basketball than we are currently seeing.

    I hate Hood and clarkson so much. No effort on defense, no hussel just two trash inefficient scores. Gtfo.
