    Fuck. I'd be willing try any decent head coach that is willing to give this team a different look. And it might even work for a while, depending on how good the coach is. Given how little this team has changed in the last few years, the least the fans deserve is maybe a different brand of basketball.

    I'm tired of all the negativity with some of you. Look how great our defense was last night.....We ONLY gave up 111.

    They say defense wins championships, so championship, here we come.

    Actually, you simply have to play average.

    Even Quick thinks this is simply bad play.

    There are no other looks you can give this team... they have given 50-60% of salary cap to McLillard who will always take 50% of the shots... Lillard I’m ok with but CJ is not the star he thinks he is and stagnates the offense with is ISO ball... and neither play defense

    I'd actually like to see a coach come in that plays an uptempo offense and see this team get out on the break more.

    They are so bad at fast breaks because they are rare.

    Sorry I cannot say for sure it was one of th Comcast sportscast shows. Again take it with a grain of salt but I believe the sentiment was taken from an offhand comment from Stotts. Saying they lost trust in each other in that 3rd quarter meltdown.
