Yeah totally agreed. It's so entertaining to watch. Great basketball.
So the one blinded by his love of all things pinwheel so much that he thinks we will win 55 games a season put me on ignore? Love it.
Dude, being a bit of a homer hardly qualifies one as a nutjob. Sports is one aspect that we can totally be irrational about and not have any negative effect on our lives. You being a Lakers homer on a Blazers forum is annoying, but no one should be calling you a nutjob.
They don't have a sharpshooter, like Dorsey or Duarte.. They don't have guy like Omoruyi (sp) or
Dillon Brooks who can get a tough basket. Richardson looks like a scared rabbit; cannot be a leader. That said, still would not be surprised if Altman turns them into something by the end of the year. But like he says it's gonna be a really tough job.
See that Bronny says he "grazed" Stewart with his "hand". Also see he got some fans thrown out for saying they wish he would get hit by a car and for saying 'Bronny's a bih, bih, bih. "
Huh? (Yes, I am beginning to not like Bron, but still not a full hater.) BTW, Mr. Holier than thou said something to the effect of "Throw those fucking fans out!"
Good offense, bad defense. Wow, good thing we replaced Stotts with Chauncey...
I know this isn't the Ducks forum (do we have one?); but I think that Altman will (for the first time?) develop an offense around some of his four highly recruited young centers. I think Johnson will be a constant because he can shoot when he is away from the basket and he is intelligent and can pass. I think they will pair him with Kepnang or Dante, which maybe they can get away with since the college court is more crowded. Haven't seen much from Bittle yet, although he is higher ranked as a recruit than the other three. Supposedly can shoot from anywhere and also a great passer. He may have been injured or is just starting slow.
Ah, yes, comparing a first year head coach in his first 20 games to a coach that had 10 years to build a culture and scheme! Are you really that blind?
Stotts built a scheme?
just as long as you know it's not the roster
I'd think Stotts is chuckling a bit over the last month or so
I guess not everyone can come in and be Steve Kerr. Or Thibs.
“Bit of a homer”? You new?
or Rick Adelman
of course, Thibs spent 20 seasons as an assistant coach; Adelman spent 6 seasons
Steve Kerr took over a 50 win team with a loaded roster. Say what you want about Mark Jackson, but there was a reason a lot of people were saying he got shafted when he was fired. (They got better every year under his watch.)
Thibs was an assistant coach for 20 years.
And you coming up with two examples kinda proves my point out of the hundreds of coaches.
*Insert logic/thinking meme*
The Grizzlies are down 39 points at home after 3 quarters to Atlanta.
Yeah, Ja went down with a knee injury and he's their guy.
No, I've known KingSpeed/Eric for years now. He's supportive, knowledgeable, passionate, and just an all-around great Blazers fan. Sure, some of his takes can be over the top, but that's what fanatics do. I'll take having his enthusiasm over a certain troll and the doom and gloomers any day.
Oh Nooooo Not Ja Morant
