Problem is Nuggets are DLO's kryptonite.


They were more Rui's kryptonite this season.

The difference is when (bleep) was tough Denis came in and Denis finished games at pg. The play in game he was trash and Denis took it over. To close Memphis they went with Denis on Ja and playing big minutes. In the closing minutes versus the warriors Denis finished and in game 6 he started. Versus Denver Denis should have started the series when Dlo was awful.

Dlo was triggered by Denis too with the bs of I’m comfortable now, Denis isn’t here to stop me and coach from communicating, I’m tough, etc … and then fell on his face 😂

Yeah people love to just gloss over the times he was benched in those first two series/play-in.

I kind a feel bad for DLO now tbh... Dude is stuck on a team that don't really want him. But still decided to opt-in because he has zero market.

If he does end up staying, I hope he just balls out and prove most us wrong.

Feel bad for what? For one, he brought all this upon himself and secondly, he' still getting paid 18-19 million dollars.

DLO already proved them wrong by averaging 18 as a 3rd option, breaking the Lakers three point record, being the best high volume 3 point shooter in the league, and leading them to wins while LeBron and AD sat.

DLO puts up nice numbers

He's still garbage and won't put us over the top

That's why they're trying so hard to trade him, why is it so hard to understand?

Yet no one in the league wants him?

Why?

The league is a place where a guy averaging 9 points can get 24 million a year. I don't let it dictate anything but seeing what the markets are.

I don't care what other NBA teams want or don't want. I'm more focused on the fact that we have an 18 PPG guy that is both a point guard and an efficient high volume 3 point shooter than can do the things he does for less than $20M and enjoying that fact.

Would be nice if any of what you keep bragging about didn't completely evaporate once the Playoffs start.. Those numbers fall completely off a cliff along with his confidence. You notice those vein injections sure got much more spaced out when the lights got brighter but hey maybe after a decade in the League he'll finally change the same exact weaknesses that were even on his College Scouting report.

I will give him credit though, he's a hell of a regular Season 3/4 option.

If that was the case we wouldn't have made it past Memphis or Golden State last year. And we wouldn't have been in Games 2 and 4 and the end of Game 5 this season.

what I keep "bragging" about? I want nothing more then to see the Lakers win another Championship so def. not bragging.. It's closer to disgust then anything else.

Notice how you have to pick out specific games to make him sound good in the Playoffs? Not a good look.. Like others are saying this is just going 'round and 'round.. It's absolutely insane to me people are really sticking up for him in the Playoffs still but i'll just agree to strongly disagree on this one. I will say that i'd absolutely love for him to prove me wrong like i've said the last two Years.

I don't need to do anything, people have already put up much better arguments to how well DLO has done in the Playoffs and how one terrible game can obstruct the stats as a whole and I'm not gonna regurgitate it, it's in the thread and it's taken down the same argument time and time again.

We don't make the WCF without DLO and we don't make the Playoffs last year without DLO. He's important to our team's success and there are ACTUAL problems the team had to deal with, and he wasn't and isn't one of them. He's a major reason for our turned around success. If you can't accept that, it's your problem.

Where's this idea that DLo had "one bad game" coming from?

He had 14 on 6-14 and 2-10 from 3 in game 1. He had 13 on 6-20 and 1-9 from 3 in game 5.

He was not good for 3 of the 5 games, which is an improvement over not looking like an NBA player in the series last year against DEN.

We need to keep D'Angelo. The value he provides is MUCH greater than apparently his trade value.

DLO is most likely staying if we go after Grant... I don't see the Blazers wanting him with Scoot/Simmons/Carrington/Kolek

His value would be as an expiring. They'd probably just flip him for a salary dump on another team for a first or something.

I prefer DLo and keeping assets to either DeRozan or Grant and losing a pile of them.

Even trade? Sure

Two good assets plus DLo?

Not worth it for either of them.

D'lo can do no wrong in some people's eyes. All his weaknesses are actually strengths.

Same could be true the other way. He can do no right in some people’s eyes. All his strengths are actually weaknesses.

Guys I can’t wait till we get rid of Dlo and immediately win a championship! It’s going to be the best. No Dlo = multiple rings!!! Don’t need to even play out the season. Just hand over them rings immediately after the trade and/or contract is finished!!!
