    Shaedon Sharpe makes Lamarcus Aldridge sound like a Shakesperean actor in an interview.

    Watching every single minute of them on TV isn’t the be-all and end-all of “sticking with” a team or being a fan. That's about the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Fans that think others need to act a certain way or it means they're not as much of a fan have the intelligence of a toddler. They probably think post count on a stupid message board matters too. It doesn't.

    Obviously someone's fandom isn't quantifiable but when people are talking about not watching again until next season and shit like that, for me... it comes off like they aren't quite as into this shit as I am. If they're saying that they have to take some games off because otherwise they're going to have a nervous breakdown then they're probably a bigger fan than I am but honestly when someone says they're giving up on a team that they call themselves a fan of, that makes them a different type of fan than I am.

    I watch through the league pass. Tonight there was an alternative broadcast with Bill Walton in a Manningcast sort of role commenting on the game from his home with some stuffed shirt play by play guy. Bill was bananas going off in every direction only occasionally referencing the game. The three guests that each dropped by for a quarter or so were Dr J, Phil Knight & Adam Sandler. At halftime he played the drums and gave himself a bloody nose that bled throughout the 2nd half.

    Alot of those people don't really mean it. They are just upset and saying things they don't mean.

    I'm just going to say it again. I think Shae could start at SG and it would be an upgrade defensively and an unknown offensively, probably a little drop off on O but who knows, maybe the confidence it would give the young guy combined with the extra reps and we might be better on both ends of the court.

    I hear you. Saying shit like that makes sense to me out of a fanatic's mouth and then they can't help themselves and watch the next game or after cooling down for a few days. All I was saying is if someone really can just turn their back on the team they are a different kind of fan.

    Right. But, I don't think most are really turning their backs. They are back the next game. But, yeah I hear where you are coming from.

    well, in the last 2 games, Ant has scored 57 points, but had 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 turnovers. In the last 4 games he's averaging 22 points, 1 rebound, 2 assists, and 3 turnovers. Those are the numbers of a 6th man. Somebody who comes off the bench and simply scores without much other responsibility

    I fail to see how Chuncy experimenting some with the rotation is a bad idea. The most obvious experiment to try is Ant as 6th man, IMO

    You can bring him off the bench but you really can't cut the guy's minutes because he's really good, just a bad fit with Dame. You just need to find the best trade for him that you can and pull the trigger. Same with Nurk except with Nurk it's a system thing, he's a great fit with Dame just not with Chauncey.
