Good grief! Ja scored 41 points on 13-27 FG going 6-7 from 3 and 9-12 from the line + added 10 boards, took over the game in the 4th and outdueled LeBron down the stretch to win the game - the fuck you complaining about?

he also just went for 30 last night with 8 dimes + 6 boards on 12/18 FG going 3/3 from 3; 3rd straight game with 30 points, 4th straight W, Memphis is 4th in the West & 1st in their Division. Not sure what the problem is.

LOL! Slo Mo is averaging 8 ppg on 43% FG - FOH! The others are decent young players, but he doesn't have any All-Star caliber teammates right now. Ja is a scoring PG, but he's also a talented passer (led the nation in assists, remember?), he's averaged 7+ APG for his career (higher than Steph and Dame) so he's fine. He does need to learn how to better balance getting his with getting his teammates more involved, but A) he is by far the best scoring option on the team, and B) he's 22 years old. Give him some time to develop + surround him with some more talent and he'll be set.
