well put - btw, I was at the Utah game, and it was patently obvious from the get go that Dung HURT the team when he was in. Disregarding the plus 27 when he was out and minus 14 when he was in, all the dung-lovers should just go to a game and watch him, and see all the little things he DOESN'T do and DOES do that hurt the team...I did not see the SA game, but assume from the stat sheet that he had a strong game, and props for that. However, Don Nelson put it best about the dung disgust and I don't think he is exactly a know-nothing about BBALL
"A lot of it is his own fault," said Nelson. "He needs to step up and do more, get tougher. I mean, I have the same problem the fans do. I'm not booing , but I'm thinking that way. Like, if he's got a mismatch down low, he might not do anything about it -- that sort of thing.
I'm on him a lot, because he's our team captain, and there are times when he needs to be dominant."
If your own coach is thinking about booing you, maybe it ain't just fickle fans...
