Makes no sense why he wouldnt play a single moment in the second half, when AS USUAL!!! we play our best basketball when he and another BIG MAN are in there.
I hear you, bro...really do, made no sense at all, except as some kind of sadistic mind ****. There was absolutely NOTHING more Randolph could have done last night...his brilliant 9 minutes were the absolute photo negative of Rob Kurz going -14 in plus minus in 5 Minutes the previous night. Randolph was shafted tonight. However, it WAS a terrific game, and I am loving the Ws ball movement lately. Your man, Crawford did have a monster game. Azu is playing terrifically well lately, and Turiaf has started showing a nice 16-18 footer to go along with the rest of his good game. I am astonished, have to say, at what a TRULY terrible touch Biedrins has, and that is a shame, since he is moving beautifully, and can outquick just about any other center to the rim...problem is, he then blows about 1/2 of his 2 foot layups.
I was going to say Crawford looked like he had a great game, with a great percentages and a nice all around floor game..............but I was just consumed with my anger over the treatment of Randolph............again.
So, now Ive calmed down............Crawford looks like he played superbly, and from the highlights...........he won us the game in more ways than one.
(Colt, Ill always give credit where credit is due man. .........and this isnt the first time Ive praised Crawford, infact, I have praised him more than I have grumbled about him)
I know, Bigs...it was very tongue in cheek. Unlike those who suck on a lemon, and gasp "he had a pretty good game" when he was ranked third in the entire NBA as a game performer last night, or even more amazingly, still call him a chucker (what, do they work for the McCain campaign, and are so invested in their spin, and are out of a job?). You are showing a pretty balanced view. If you have watched the games since sjax went out, it is astonishing how much better the ball movement has been. There is movement, cutting, nice back doors, great drive and kicks. I know Nelson is a stubborn mofo, but I think it would be a disaster to start sjax when he returns.
About S-Jax..........ohh god yeah! ball movement has been so much better, aswell as shot selection and general effort to gain space............its almost like S-Jax infects the others with his bone headed crap.
Even Maggs is trying to pass! although thats been abit of a problem because he is one of the worst passers I have ever seen! and is creating some pretty poor turnovers............but hey, atleast hes listening and trying to do something about the shortcomings hes been accused of.
We all know Nelson is going to start him, and this has been my big worry for a long time, how all these guys are going to fit and play together..........at the moment, if we play awful iso ball with 3 of them together, what happens when Monta comes back? will it get worse or better?
For awhile now, the player I want to get rid of the most, and I feel kills us the most............is S-Jax.
