Woke up at 3:00 w/ this darn broken arm killing me. I'm exhausted and have to try to get some sleep. Pain meds finally kicking in!
I don't know if Brown is pushing buttons so much as calling a spade a spade. So far, Brown's been pretty direct with the media. I think he's saying what he's saying: May's not ready. We have to do something about our PF situation. Yeah, in essence he's calling May out. However, I'm not sure Brown is saying this about May with the intention that we do nothing and hope May improves by pushing his buttons. I think Brown would genuinely like another option at PF. But he knows how things work: you add a guy, you have to subtract a guy.
SOMEONE will pay for THIS!
Hey just so you guys know I am uploading a new video today on Youtube:
Sean May- Dead and Gone
lol.......I am not kidding
First, let me preface this post by saying I never wanted Sean May. I'm a Tarheels fan but I had serious doubts about whether or not his game translated well to the NBA. I wanted one of two things with that pick, either use it to trade up for Chris Paul or to select Danny Granger. After my initial rants when the FO picked him, I held out all hope that I'd be wrong.
It really blows my mind how the front office could've thought it was a good idea to continue to count on him with how his career has went to date. I really wonder what in the world they were basing it on. Whoever thought it was a good idea should be fired.
I'm not opposed to the "committee" approach LB will have to take but I see A. Brown starting so we still have Nazr coming off the bench...I honestly think this ended up in the media for one or two reasons....LB knows (as we do ) that McMay can't play because he did not bother to come into camp in any kind of shape to play and it appears McMay is at the proverbial cross roads in his career(get in shape or you're out of the NBA)...and/or the FO along with LB feels the need to let the owner know they might have to eat the McMay contract to open a roster spot...we have a couple of guys (Hollins and Davidson) that would cost less to release for a spot but at least they are healthy and in shape and we all know big bodies are hard to find....at this point LB might feel McMay is never going to get in shape or be a force because of conditioning/medical issues...to have a chance to add anyone (trade or picking up a cut) we have to have a roster spot and right now we don't have one without a cut...
Here is the catch, we have to eat some contracts. I'm all for spending OPM (other peoples money) but why cut May now. If you cut him that is a larger hit than cutting both Davidson and Hollins together and you have two roster spots. I like what LB did calling him out publicly. Get someone on the training staff to put him to work. Force him to get in shape who knows after hit gets in shape he could be our answer at the 4. You won't get anything for him in trade so you are forced to keep him. There are some trades out there that can be worked out its just that we knew this situation going in to the preseason when we could have did a trade and already had someone adjusting to the system. There is work to be done no use crying over spilled milk, just go out and make it happen.
those who suggest cutting sean may are mental.
