Yeah, that's also my point. He tried to make it work with the guys that the front office signed and saw it was going to be worth more Ls than Ws. So he changed. We agree.

I don't think so. Everybody's acting like it's purely Nelson's fault that this team is at .500 (as opposed to a higher record).
How can that be when I'm saying NELLIE HAS DONE A GOOD JOB OVERALL?. This is strictly related to Ike's situation. He's been doing a good regarding any other aspect of the team. But I'm not talking about that.

That hasn't happened yet. Other players are less ready than him and it's all praise (like Dajuan Wagner in preseason. He's going to be back and be a key to the team. Suddenly, he's cut and out of the league again...)
I seriously doubt Nelson would BS around something if there was anything to be said. To his credit, Nelson's always been honest with the fans. That was one of the most frustating things about the Monty-Era; nobody knew what was going on backstage. With Nelson, the guy's shooting off new quotes every day. I seriously doubt he's hiding something (and, if he is, it's to protect Diogu, not hinder him).
My point is, according to Ike (it's in one of Colt's post in the news forum), there's no communication between them. It's not about quotes to appeal the fans. The issue here is Ike, who doesn't know what to do to get out of the doghouse. That's not the sign of someone that believes Ike can help. I haven't read a single sentence of praise for Ike coming from Nellie. Not a single one. Everything it's criticism. Doesn't know the book, he's a blamer (and he seems to avoid answering questions about Ike, which makes it even worse)... and Ike doesn't even know what he's doing wrong.
Guess Ike's not the only blamer in the team...
