I'm SO tired of the "he's a kid" excuse! This young MAN grew up in the spot light, has been under intense scrutiny for at least 3-4 years, is a potential number one overall pick, and saw one of his unit lose his position on the team JUST ONE YEAR ago !! At some point it's time to just call it what it is. Arrogant selfishness. He apparently thought the rules of life just don't apply to him as they do to others.

I admit to not watching the NBA much, so just curious, has LBJ ever played above the rim? His ability to finish near the rim isn't really all that special, IMO.

My point exactly, it's not the miss that bothers me, it's that shot selection and most that followed.

It is kind of standard I suppose, but some guys simply play with more passion than others.  Okafor struck me as somewhat passive a good part of the season, particularly when challenged.  Greg Oden was the opposite, IMO, and so is Towns.  I think your right about Russell, but I'm not sure Okafor deserves to be the top pick.  Russell may be hurt by being a bit too weak right out of college.  I think he will take some time to get to the point his body is NBA ready, but when it is, watch out.

I would agree this is our biggest question mark going into the season. Spencer and Smith made so many clutch plays in that 3 game run. So many drive sustaining and momentum grabbing plays. Back breaking third and long conversions. So important to keeping Cardale and Zeke going. Blocking down field is also an under recognized part of WR play that Spencer EXCELLED at. I'm confident we'll fill the roles, but this is my biggest concern going into the season, for sure.
