I think I read both of them
Pity likes in the hundreds. Maybe thousands. Does he have that many?
It was so nice for a while.
I suspect you're Lenny Wilkens.
Stotts is still here
So you're the new asshole on S2, huh?
Are we ever trusting Stein again?
Is he the new Broussard? What kind of sauces does Stein have?
You know you are hitting the bottom when little gronk likes your post. Nothing new about me.
He said there were murmurs in the coaching circles... very well could have been.
I'd be very interested to know what other NBA coaches thought of playoff Stotts. It appeared that playoff Rondo out gunned him
Yup. I passed the drama-torch to him. He turned it into a bonfire.
This reads like one drawn-out "yes".
Meh, I never thought of you as an asshole. If anything, I appreciate you keeping @KingSpeed in line. I would do it myself, but he blocked me last season.
So basically......next year is going to be the same ol' shit, unless we make some major changes at GM, and add an All Star-caliber wing. Stotts still won't learn how to do a proper timeout, and unless Dame shows up in the playoffs, we'll be a first round exit. Again.
It kind of feels like the Colts when they brought Pagano back when everyone thought he was getting fired last offseason. He did get fired this offseason, that's the way it feels with Stotts for next season.
Does this mean we go for a Spurs hot shot assistant? Only for said assistant to accept job then back out and return to be heir apparent of the Spurs franchise?
A coaching change would just be shuffling the deck chairs and not addressing the leaky D and lack of enough perimeter threats. Hopefully Zach adds strength and confidence to blossom in year 2... they need him to deserve a bigger role. Hopefully the humiliation vs NO lights a fire in Nurk to focus on his game as he's obviously still some major things that he could improve on. That he's just about to turn 24 gives hope that maturity will bring that focus. But they truly need to add a long versatile SF who can defend and lace jumpers. That should be the clear offseason focus for who ever the GM is.
Wow, so this is what it's like to have a coach that has the ability to make adjustments.....
To me it was just about Houston being hot. It’s a make or miss league and all of their role players were hot on the same night meanwhile, GS outside of Durant were pretty bad. I still think GS is gonna win this series in 6.
The players were able to shoot better because they had open shots. In the first game, Harden and Paul were dribbling the shot clock out and making passes late forcing players to jack up shots against the clock. This game they pushed the ball more and noticeably made more cuts. They got away from the Harden/Paul and Capela pick and rolls.
I soooooo hate that phrase (and anything else Marc Jackson repeats relentlessly). What league isn't??
Pop said that before Marc Jackson as far as I know. Sometimes it’s pretty fitting and I think in this series it’s going to be really fitting. They both take so many 3’s the team making them that night is going to win by a wide margin. We may get a game where both teams are making them. With the popularity of the 3 pointer I feel like it’s truer than ever, it’s why there seems to be so many huge swings in every game.
