Great question honestly. I blame D'Angelo Russell for a good bit of it, he's supposed to be the guy taking pressure off LeBron and AD but he's playing some terrible basketball lately
Y'all should've kept Davon Reed instead of cutting him for Thompson/Harrison. Reed's nothing special but he's a solid 3 and D guy and he spent most of the last two seasons here, so he might've had some insight that could've helped the Lakers in this series. I watched both Harrison and Reed with the Nugs and Reed is definitely the better player.Great question honestly.

It's still really hard to be mad about the trades and stuff though because this team doesn't even get to the playoffs with Westbrook on the roster, so to go from that to the WCF is a trade I'll take every time. It does show just how far they are from being a true contender for a championship though.
I’ll still take playoff Jimmy Butler over this guyJamal Murray, regular season career:
16.9 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.3 blocks, 44.7% FG, 37.3% 3PT, 87.0% FT
Jamal Murray, playoff career:
25.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.3 blocks, 47.3% FG, 41.2% 3PT, 91.9% FT
Nobody in NBA history has a bigger jump from regular season to playoff PPG.
