    Is the weave the only way Terry can get these guys to move? Holy shit, do they look awful on offense. There are no forceful cuts to the rim, no conviction with any of their movement. And most of the passes by anyone else outside of Dame/Nurk seem forced, almost as if they're obliged to make a pass because they shot the past three times. Guys just aren't playing free. That is on Terry and Dame to get back on track.

    I hate scapegoating coaches, but this looks so stale. Guys need a jolt.

    My take...the guys know somebody is on the trade block and the team is pouting, knowing changes are coming.

    Because he is 8 years younger and we win nothing with Dan
    Because Smith is much younger, much cheaper and with Dame we win nothing. We are Stuck in mediocricy with the 3rd highest payroll. We probably make the playoffs and then get sweeped by the warriors or rockets, and next year again, and then again, is that what you want? I don't like first round exit's anymore

    This is a possibility. It's happened before.

    No need to apologize. It was funny.
    I just think it's good that he is still positive. This team needs some help and staying positive is going to be important.

    The first half. Not sure i have seen that many turnovers in a row ever? They say they only had 13 but i'm sure it was more?

    Well we disagree on that. So lets just say my opinion differs. Like i said. You had multiple players coming forward unprovoked to defend the guy. The whole team was shocked by it. Certainly if you have Dame making a personal statement to address it. The fans in the Moda lost some respect from the players on the team that night. It is showing in their play. Seems like they are all the sudden playing for money and who really cares about anything else.

    Lets not get me started on the Cat for a mascot thing. Maybe @SlyPokerDog is right?

    No, they are showing in their play what they already are... not that fans rightfully booed an inconsistent player.

    In fact, they should boo Turner, too. So really, they are slacking.

    This part of your statement makes me wonder?

    If anything, the fans should boo more of our inconsistent players. Maybe it'll wake up Olshey while he's waiting for his valeted car.
