    It's not about smarts, it's about what he's used to doing in situations that presented itself.

    We are humans. That's what we do. It's hard for us to break habits.

    Great glue guy, makes everyone around him better without it necessarily showing up on the boxscore.

    I understand what you're saying, I'm talking about ingrained. Two different things.

    But I'll end it at that. Enjoy the game!

    I would have taken CJ out not Tony. Chauncey needs to stop riding his starters for 30+ mpg especially when they aren’t playing well.

    Also it’s blatantly obvious Nance needs to play 30+ mpg. So horribly underused compared to the starters.

    Ants can carry way more than their own weight. Trust FAMS named Ant.

    Dame should just focus on being a good distributor and playing D. Allow the others to step up.

    Substitutions and rotations are definitely his weakest attribute right now. Makes sense as a rookie head coach though. Needs some time to get a feel for the rotations.

    CJ is going to end up playing 40 mpg again for no reason.
