You know, when I go to check whether we have won or not............and we have...........I just laugh.

When I look at the boxscore and see that 7 players played, one of them Brandan who played 7 and a half minutes............Im sorry but that just doesnt excite me.

Nelson has bled the life out of me. :cry:

Brandan was basically taken out of the game because Jermaine O'Neil left the game.

I'm just praying he doesn't get burried on the bench when Monta and Regrette are back



haha, Regrette :mrgreen:

Unless there is a trade likely Belinelli will go back to next to no minutes

Belinelli has really allowed for the trading of either or all of Crawford, Maggette and SJackson. He comes cheaper, is younger and more hungry, as he has finally received his chance. Be unbelievable (mean that) to get Baron back, with a guy like Kaman, for Crawford and Maggette and then have Nelson fired, replaced by Avery. Avery uses Kaman properly, relates well to the players and the team functions at its best.

Just a dream ofcourse :wink:

Although I had to work late and missed this game, I wont be a hypocrite, CJ Watson is a TERRIBLE defender as well. I guess the difference for me is that we are paying 711K for a guy who only plays one side of the court vs paying 9 mill a year for a guy who only plays one side of the court.

I am glad to hear that you observed Crawford "busting his ass" on D. He must be getting the message from Smart and that is great. I know he is a bad defender but there is no excuse for lack of effort and in the first 3 weeks or so as a warrior, he gave NO EFFORT on D. Next Warrior game I can catch I will pay close attention to see if I notice a difference in effort level.

My whole thing on the game was Brandon not playing and Crawford playing. Why is Nellie playing Jax the whole game, that could have cost us when gets tired he wants to do the one on one thing. Marco deserves to play next to Monta when he returns, he is playing on both sides of the ball and like I have always said we have good ball movement with marco touching the ball. GO ROCKY

Strange game because Toronto played really bad and shows little cohesion as a team. It reminds me of Lebron James and the spare change teams. Beating a bad team and having a good shooting night proves nothing for a 11-23 team. Toronto does not have talent around Bosh, we have a lot, lot of young talent that rots on the bench and 4-5 10 million dollar men that shoot a lot of bad shots, lousy 3 point percentage and low field goal percentage and can't play defense anymore (in Jackson case). There is no better way to draft stiffs (very undesirable lottery picks) and be mediocre with the development of back up guards (Belinelli and Watson) and the complete disregard of your bigs (AR and BW). We can't blame the young players for a league leading bad defense and a 11-23 record because the last time I checked players like Azu, Jackson, Crawford, Watson, Mags ate up the minutes. Its like the Musselhead era all over again, win a meaningless games for a coach that rather have an extra win or two and less ping pongs than actually play the young forwards.

*Cough*Jackson*Cough* haha. I understand what youre saying though and I think the reason most people don't like him is because of our record in games with him playing. We don't have a lot of wins in general and in the losses there are many games where he had bad games so it magnifies his bad games as opposed to his good ones. Also the fact that, as TMC I think it was pointed out, the guy has been on the losing side his entire career doesnt help his image.
