    Oh... I picked 5 because I didn't see the post that says 3.

    Billups fired
    Dame sits
    Nurk/Grant sit
    Play the young guys
    lose as many games as possible

    Four of these are like a package deal...

    I do want a good draft pick, but I can't help myself from rooting for the team to do well each game. So I can't pick #5, and I honestly do like seeing Dame go HAM even when the games don't "count", so I can't pick #2. So I went with 1, 7, and 8.

    Okay. I’m probably wrong as usual.

    It just doesn't seem credible that guys like Dame & Ant & Grant are uncoachable

    The only thing I care about is Sharpe getting a lot of playing time with Lillard and Simons in the starting lineup. And Walker getting a lot of playing time; it'd be great if he was a starter too.
    I think Dame, Simons, Sharpe, Walker and Nurkic playing together would make the games worth watching.
    The defense would be bad but at least we'd get something out of the losses.
    What are we learning/improving upon in the losses now? Jack and squat.

    Chauncey was hired because he had the highest potential of all candidates. In the end, it didn't pay off. Mike D'antoni would have been the same as Stotts, good offense, bad defense

    Which in a vacuum is still much better than Billups has proven to be.

    I didn’t mean to say that those guys were uncoachable. More so the young guys. I could have worded that better, but I came down with Covid today. Brain cells aren’t firing at peak efficiency.

    Understandable logic, I don't agree, but I understand where you're coming from.

    I will never vote "Dame Sits", especially to watch marginal role players in his place... every game we get to watch him in a Blazer uniform is a blessing.

    Want Sharpe to get a lot more minutes, want to tank so we likely get a 6 or 7 position before lottery, can't stand watching the games as to me it's just such shitty basketball, want Chauncy gone after season ends.

    So tank. A great pick gives me way more to cheer about than ending up the 11th seed

    Sit anybody who isn't dying for playing time. Dame, Grant, and Nurk. Play the young guys a ton.
