    Yea, he has a great motor and is quick. Blake has a better hop to his game when he plays with Bullock (Bullseye)

    I fell asleep hard with about 5 minutes left on my recording. I missed all the "drama".

    Drummond might turning into AI jr. He made some reference to a dead friend on Twitter last night followed by a promotional tweet about his guest DJ gig at the club tonight.

    Can you imagine if he did an SVG diss rap?

    That would be great. Then we could ship him out and get someone who plays hard and shoots FTs at a grade school level.

    Yeah, its kinda weird. I don't want to say what I am about to, because if i am wrong, it logically means I am an a-hole, but it kinda seemed like 'Dre was using his friend that passed a few weeks ago as an excuse. (Ugh, I feel so dirty just typing a sentence like that.) An excuse to cover up that he was personally frustrated during a time people were expecting him to be celebratory.

    All the context suggests he was upset with all the things SVG attributed it to: FT struggles, not being on the floor in the 4th, etc. Losing a friend is horrible. And, you do think on them at those moments they would normally be celebrating with you. But, it just doesn't really add up. I mean, he looks downtrodden every time he misses a FT or a hook-shot, or doesn't get the ball when he thinks he should have. Andre should just admit it is frustrating him, or at least not deny it. Again, If I am wrong, I am a horrible horrible person.

    I can see why others avoided this argument; it is so insensitive and tactless. But, I just can't take him at his word here. I can't believe his heavy explanation when he has demonstrated the same sulk all year. Andre is 'The Boy who Moped Wolf.'

    If I had posted this in another forum, I would delete it. I avoid posts like this, and it looks like I am really going after Andre. Plus, it is all bad conjecture. But, since it seemed like Andre was exploiting the death of a friend, I got a little worked up. (trying to find dunce cap emoji)

    You have no idea how essential bad conjecture is to a lively forum.

    I too thought it odd. He could have just been working on the set list for his gig tonight.

    This had zero to do with his dead friend unless he went into greiving the same second he was pulled. It's clearly just a bad excuse.

    Yeah, we don't know how Andre's head works. Even though we want him to be near perfect.

    Dre stunk against the Wiz, as per usual. The dude is mentally weak- period. I hope it changes as he matures; if he matures.
