Oh and where has Ike dissapeared too? Neither Murph, Biedrins or Dunleavy are having any real impact on the game and Nelson still can't find Ike....I'm with Coltraining, its gone from dissapoiting to stupid.
game over and again, glad they won, and very happy to see Barnes continue to excel. The lesson with Barnes is one that I am seeing will come back to bite us on the ass with Diogu, if nelson continues his idiocy with him. Frankly, I had zero interest in watching the 2nd 1/2, cause I was disgusted with Nelson's peevish ways towards Ike tonight. If Diogu was injured, I retract this rant, but otherwise, giving a player 0 minutes
a night after he gets 16 points in 18 minutes on 6-8 shooting
is just ludicrous. Especially when they are down 2 starters to injury and Murphy is shooting 1-8. If they aren't gonna play him, they may as well trade him so he can come back and haunt them and Nelson can get another undersized soft outside player or slowfooted 7 ' 6 big who shoots 20% from three land. I never paid enormous attention to Nelson before - he always seemed like a run and gun charming rogue who put gimmicky teams together that were entertaining. Now I am beginning to think his personal grudges, disdain for defense and anti-low post ideology have something to do with why he has never won a title in 30 years of coaching...mark my words, Diogu is going to be a star somewhere in this league, and if it ain't here, he is gonna reserve a special hurting for the Ws as he recalls the sh*t way Monty and Nelson treated him his first 2 years. There is a simple solution: Play the man who is 2nd on the team in scoring and first in rebounding per 48 minutes and 2nd on the team in FG%. Ya don't need to be Red Holtzman to figure that one out! The kid is getting a rotten a deal as Dung has gotten a good one. free Ike Diogu!
end of rant...
