somebody might want to consider doing something radical like GUARDING BEN GORDON!!!!!
I would play Dudley some minutes to try to cool off Deng.
Yeah that would be a good plan...
By the way when I said J-Rich needs to get involved I didn't mean everybody else just needs to sit around and watch him, and God it would be nice if we could make some free throws. We're gonna need a perfect 4th quarter.
I don't understand Vincent's vision at all.
It's obvious there's no significant offensive game plan, as all of the wing players basically take whatever open shot they can get. Nobody's trying to set screens. Nobody's trying to shoot midrange shots. There's no interior passing. There seem to be few cuts. Guys aren't ready for passes.
I just don't understand what Vincent's offensive game plan is. I really don't understand his lineups. Why not play Felton, Richardson, and Wallace together with Okafor and either Dudley or Davidson. Let them run together for a little while and get used to playing with each other. This McInnis/Felton back court is killing me.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Bulls shooting lights out looks like the losing streak will continue.
What the hell Vincent finally puts Jared in with 3:00 minutes left? Fabio hasn't seen the floor at all makes no sense.
RIP Michael Jackson & Steve McNair
And if you notice, Dudley is our only player who understands how to play in between the rim and the three point line. We get him in there and he can make passes in and out, plus hit shots.
We've got to get the guy minutes.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Eaton: The Bulls announcer turned out to be correct - we were pretty much road kill for them the 2nd half.
Dnbman: I understand Sam's vision. It is clear. Tank the season, get high draft picks.I say picks for this reason. We will be at or near the the bottom of league shortly after All-Star break. Phoenix will be gearing up for a Playoff run, and since they lost Thomas, they need someone to play vs. Duncan. They will trade for Okafor and give us both their 1st round picks - their own and Atlanta's. With those picks, Bobcats will get Beasley and Rose in the Lottery, trade our 2nd rounder and Phoenix's late 1st rounder to move up and we will get Riek for our Center. Rose will take the lead PG job, Ray will move to SG. J-Rich will come off bench. Ray will be our back up PG. Our lineup will be: Rose, Ray, Crash, Beasley and Riek. We then win our Division for 10 straight years and 4 NBA Titles. THAT is the vision. I am not making that up. I come from the future and that is how this will play out. Either that, or I had some bad Sushi tonight.
I think you may be doing more than just Sushi for din din.....
......Go Bobcats!!!!! (Hornets) ..
Another in a long line of typical road performances both by us and the home team: weak leadership and direction when the going gets tough, and the opposing team shooting lights-out. God, that was some ugly, static offense tonight; they were just fortunate the shots were going in at a decent clip or it would'be been another Philly game.
I really hope I'm proven wrong, but I hope some of you optimists out there are seeing my viewpoint on how difficult it's going to be to get 33 wins this year, and how long this losing streak is going to last. My guess is lucky number 13. Anybody want to take an over/under on that?
I don't know if it's the JRich addition or the Vincent addition, but this team looks more clueless than during the Bernie-era. GW and JRich are mixing like oil and water, and those whispers in the wind of the two of them being one of the top combo wing players in the league has scattered somewhere off the eastern seaboard by now; these guys are just not gelling...AT ALL.
Whatever confidence this team had gained from 6-4 has absolutely been demolished; these guys look like a bunch of players resigned to another year of futility. They've established the Bobcats culture of losing, and, sickeningly, they seem to be embracing it.
Though we differ on how we think management should go about it, ohara and I are absolutely right that MASSIVE, WHOLESALE changes are needed to turn this franchise around.
Oh well, onward and upward. I give us a 6% chance of beating the Raptors, but maybe we can catch some magic and pull it out.
"The Charlotte Hornets name has been a mainstay throughout the region for many years, and we are excited to announce our intention to re-establish this historic brand. We believe that its return will galvanize our fan base by unifying our loyal Bobcats fans with those who have strong memories of our city's NBA predecessor." MJ, 5-21-13
