Game Thread: Minnesota Timberwolves (42-40) at Los Angeles Lakers (43-39) Apr 11 2023 7:00 PM

I’m not asking him to be a great defender, just some effort would be nice. He doesn’t rotate at all on defense and expects everyone to make the switches for him and almost always ends up with an open 3. There is a reason why it seems like every team shoots amazing against us, and it isn’t just the lakers tax… our perimeter D is lacking. Also, no it’s not that fucked when said 38 year old is averaging better numbers than he did in 2013. When he does great and gets praised, it’s “Oh he’s 38 and still doing this!” Yet y’all think he can’t be criticized at all for the same reason. His expectations are unmatched and you can be critical of a player without it being hating.
