Dung-leavy. Thats right i blame the decline in Troy Muprhy's career on little mikey Dungpile. As soon as these guys become "buddies" dungpiles suckiness started rubbing off on Troy Murphy, now murphy brings the same crappy dungleavy attitude with him to every game.

Nothing is ever their fault. Its always the coaches fault, its Barons fault, its the style of plays fault, its the fans fault, its the "expectations" fault and on and on. They dont practice to get better, since nothing is ever their fault why should they practice the things they need to improve on?

We used to have one sissy boy on the team and now we got two, and im kinda thinking it has rubbed off on Foyle too, but im not sure how close Foyle and Dung are.

So on top of not playing Dung in the last 3 minutes of any game, i also say dung is not allowed to hang out or associate with Monta Ellis, Biedrins, Pietrus or any Warrior with talent. The dunginess is spreading and i think mullin has it too.

So... it works like a virus, then? :scratch:

Maybe we should start destroying the poisonous cells. Would that stop it from spreading? :mrgreen:

Murphy is bad now because he's never been able to get anything but garbage rebounds and now AB is getting all the rebounds. And Enough people are scoring we don't need his scoring

It isn't that Murphy sucks, it's just that he is not effective on the block or in the paint. That being said, he is more than adequate as a high post player and as a perimeter playing big man. Combine Murphy with either Biedrens or Ike, and the team has a nice high-low combination. If you combine Murphy with Dunleavy at the 5 and 4 positions, then you have some problems (read: no inside presence).

The issue of Dunleavy; however, is quite a different matter.

Where does he play?

I can only see him playing power forward with Biedrens, who provides a nice inside presence.

I cannot see Dunleavy playing small forward; he is too slow and unathletic to play there.

Let's face it; Mullin should have gotten canned for letting Jameson go and signing Dunleavy to the long term deal.

Who in the NBA would want Dunleavy on their team?

Murphy's a slacker!

Have you ever seen Murphy sweat? Have you ever seen him huffing and puffing running up and down the court? NO! Murphy does not try his hardest on the floor. He's got some good skills, like Dunleavy, but skills don't mean dick if you don't try hard!

I'm not one to judge passion, but I cannot see any passion for the game of basketball in Dunleavy or Murphy. Fuckin' slackers! If they would just play their hardest on the court every night (i.e. Jason Richardson) then they would be better players than they are now.

STEP IT UP MURPHY!!! STEP IT UP DUNLEAVY!!! THE TEAM NEEDS YOU GUYS AND YOU'RE BOTH FUCKIN' SLACKING!!! TRY HARD FOR ONCE!!!

Murphy's game hasn't improved much. In fact, it's leveled off. This guy is better off on a team with an established low post big man so he can live outside. He's a classic example of decent stats, but really no substance to his game. Seriously, a 6'11 guy who shoots less than 45% from the field? YIKES!!!

I think some of us were disillusioned to what he was doing earlier in his career. I always thought he was a stiff at Notre Dame and while he is a good ROLE player, he doesn't belong on this team as the main 4.

If we had a dominant low post player and Murph lived outside, he would be viewed a bit better, but we all know we don't have that person anyway.

Also, I think him "sucking now" has something to do with his haircut.

I dunno... Barnes has made some not-so-great plays down the stretch... (even though the 3-pt play against Seattle was good). The boched rebound in Milwaukee comes to mind...
