    You can add pre-injury Klay Thompson to that list, and pre-injury Wes Matthews. Now that he has made the transition to high volume/low efficency no-conscience-gunner he is firmly on the short list for the league's worst contract.

    Keep Dame, Nas, Simons, Nance and Norm. The rest has to go, it’s fucking embarrassing

    Perfect. Who cares about the score. Just keep losing. We need to rebuild. Go Timbers

    LOL...WUT? Are you defending Olshey's honor or arguing the legal meaning of quotation marks? I can't tell

    and by the way, you still trash Stotts and just tonight trashed Kanter. They have been "gone" a lot longer that Olshey has

    Plan C:

    Sell off Dame, CJ, RoCo, Nurk for young assets and multiple 1s

    Make the Lottery

    Keep 28 year olds Norm and Nance as the new leaders of the younger team(I like their toughness and character)

    Swing the Simmons deal (most likely a Dame package)

    Start over with a lineup of…

    Simons/Maxey
    Norm
    Little/Thybulle
    Nance/GB3
    Simmons

    Add our 2 1s and at least 3 more 1s (over this and next season) for the guys traded.

    Unpopular yes but resets the timeline, we have been the same exact team for the past 8 years and it isn’t good enough, Dame is 33 next season.

    it might take a long time. Seems like the investigation of Olshey started when Obama was in the Senate

    How does Nance feel seeing the Cavs killing it while we look like a complete mess?

    I think that is a great in theory, but it could also cause a total fracture. Tough position for a 1st year head coach with 1 year of assistant coaching experience.

    We got outrebounded by 16 and Dennis Smith had 4 defensive rebounds; Nurk and Roco together had 5.

    Sure... As you may or may not know, I don't really put much effort trying to read into those types of things because there are so many things behind the scenes we may not know, people show those traits in a different ways, and the people judging those traits have bias in how they see things.

    We agree tonight was real bad. You may have a great read on all those other things, I'm not saying you don't.

    I totally agree. These guys are showing very little buy in right now and because of the distorted reality that Olshey and Stotts have been selling them for so long they think they're legit. So sitting one of the starters like RoCo might be a bad idea. Sitting RoCo and CJ which is what would be done in an amateur setting would be disastrous. The team would see it as Chauncey asserting dominance and humiliating guys... he'd lose the team completely.

    This roster is fucked from the stand point of how their skill sets are incongruent. This roster is fucked because it doesn't have enough size or athleticism. This roster is fucked in the head. Roster moves are the only legit answer, this organization has to make them and they should do it as soon as possible.
