Default Re: Why did Clarkson and Hood turn into complete trash playing with Lebron?

Clarkson and Hood are already trash players, they just got more opportunities to play on worse teams than the Cavs.

Pressure, Clarkson couldn't thrive under extreme pressure, with everyone watching and everyone criticizing him and every move he makes.

Sometimes certain players shine and become great roll players, like Ariza with Kobe and Phil Jackson and he was under extreme pressure and won a championship and hit great shots and played great defense.

But Clarkson might just work on his game and play better under pressure now that he knows it's not that difficult to play under so much pressure and it's OK to fail sometimes, but learn to grow and become even better, then he just might blow up and give Cleveland 25 points a game and everyone will say that they want him on their team.

But it's pressure and playing with the best player in the game, but when he was a Laker he's losing and there's no real pressure to win right away until they make the playoffs then there's real pressure, because of having to live up to the hype and step up your game.

Clarkson played next to a guy who only cared about his farewell instead of putting his franchise in a better position for the future. A guy who never was able to teach his yougins what's like to be in the playoffs. That man happens to be Kobe Bryant.

Clarkson reached the finals, gained some valuable experience, playing next to LeBron. The moment was just to big for them to perform when it mattered.

Hood got traded for a Rookie, it tells you a lot, what kind of faith people had in him

Please stop with your unnecessary hate. Y'all breathe LeBron for a living, it needs to stop, it's not healthy.

Lebron makes his teammates worse.

Which in turn causes some to make excuses as to why he makes his teammates worse.

Hood was traded because Donovan Mitchell took his job and Clarkson was traded because that mistake of a contract (3 years 37.5 million left) they got out from under. Both were mediocre at best.
