    Rudy is showing very poor effort tonight. What is his problem?

    He's letting a lack of touches offensively impact his defense and effort.

    No help, only others relying on him. He's spent.

    He can’t even catch the ball. The last thing he should be worried about is offensive touches.

    Build around him or trade him, and they've never built around him. So...

    Bingo. Either go all in on a bigass athletic lineup with Donovan at the one or trade him. DL laid an egg.

    Rudy was so frustrated tonight. Fumbling the ball over and over. He could NOT grab a !@$$!@ rebound to save his life. The first play of the 2nd half he got involved rolling to the hoop but we just could not get him the ball.

    If Bogey and Ingles could remember how to hit a jumper it would open things up a little for him.

    Players don't trust him I think when it come to giving him the ball cuz he fumbles the ball almost every time or gets outhustled when getting to the ball.

    He was wide open standing in the paint at least 4 times tonight where Conley straight up ignored him. I was pissed too.
    We've all played with a ball hog, you eventually quit trying too.

    Theis completely obliterated him tonight too. Outplayed him on both ends of the court.

    Personally, I don't think he's worth the Super max. I'd trade him to whomever gets the 1st rd pick and then draft Wiseman. Trade him or simply lose him if he sign with another team.

    Rudy has every right to be frustrated. Rudy’s effort is trash. Rudy is a big part of the problem right now and this season tbh. Rudy’s effort has slipped (due to touches) Rudy has repeatedly took shots at teammates in post-game interviews. Who else has done it? Rudy has done far too much whining this season and been far to selfish. Are they missing him? Yes. I also think the chemistry has slipped in large part because he’s always whining.

    Maybe Conley is a silent cancer, killing team chemistry. Who knows what's going on in that locker room.

    Conley is too nice but looked like he wanted to shake his head after zipping a routine pass in the second and watching as Gobert let it squirt through his fingers and out of bounds. Bad idea making Rudy the interior offense and letting Faves walk, he’s always had hands of stone. Sometimes I’m relieved to see Bradley come in cause he can catch any kind of pass and finish without losing the ball.

    Well who can argue with one game's results. From that sample size I'm guessing we must have lost every game where Conley didn't play.

    Rudy isn’t worth the supermax. Not many are honestly.

    Rudy definitely wants the ball more... problem is he goes through long stints where he can’t ducking catch the ball... he was doing well with it for a while but has been atrocious lately...

    His defense has been ineffective for more than a few games and it’s really troubling.
