1st: There is absolutely no reason Gana is getting close to the same minutes as Tyrus. TT is hustling his ass off and it's paying off. Your lead scorer and rebounder shouldn't be getting 23 minutes.
2nd: Gerald Henderson is beneficial how, exactly? His man to man D was absolutely embarrasingly horrid. Gary Neal clowned him. Hendo was awful. No excuse. When his offense is better than his D, his ass needs to be on the bench. Jesus H. Christ, I could play better D. He wasn't even trying to guard Neal, just standing around like a fucking idiot.
3rd: How hard is it to figure out that a lineup of DJ/Livingston/Hendo/UPS/Crash is going to get KILLED inside. We're not playing the Thunder here, we're playing against Tim Duncan and Tiago Splitter. Jeez.
4th. If for whatever reason LB goes nuts, the team is headed for the lottery and Jack/Crash/Boris get traded, then a DJ/Livingston/Hendo/UPS/(insert expiring contract or young center here) would be a fun starting 5 to watch.
5th. Amp, you are the man. those were awesome seats. Thanks a ton.
I've been riding Larry hard since the off-season, and I still think his heart isn't fully here, but he won major points for me by sitting Jack and GW toward the end of the game. It wouldn't've hurt my feelings had Jack been told not to come out for the second half. It's very strange how Boris has been more consistently engaged during games this season than Jack, and anybody looking to move Boris over Jack at this point, needs to look past biases towards what is happening on the court: Boris is the best facilitator for our offense. But yeah, it was fun watching the youngins and Boris cut the lead down and provide a fun spark in the last couple minutes.
It's been a tough (not unexpected, however) start, but there's still a glimmer of something better down the road, and I saw some of it tonight.
Did the TV show Jordan jawing with the Ref? there was an out of bounds situation near the Bobcats bench, Jordan got the ball and wouldn't return it until he got some words to the Ref....then he threw a pretty aggressive pass to the ref 5 feet away...the Ref chirped back a little bit and Jordan didn't back done, gave it right back to him....and no Technical.....just wondering if the TV cameras caught it??
Amp and I were right behind that, holy cow it was impressive. I thought it was going to sail into the stands, but somehow TT got up there. Even MJ would be proud of that!
