Look, Im not going to sit here and condone all of these player/personnel moves. Some of them at this point dont seem to make any sense at all. But as far as LB goes, sure he isnt utilizing some of the younger guys, but seriously, the problem is that there really isnt a ton of talent on this team compared to the rest of the league. We dont have a true #1 guy and we never have had one. Crash is not a #1, on a good team he is maybe a #2 or #3 guy. But when Crash is your best guy, then your team isnt that good. Jax is also not a #1 guy, we have a lot of guys who would be role players on good teams. The problem is now that we dont have the cap room, and we have made mistake after mistake in the draft where we could have had the chance to get a number one guy, but instead we took someone else. We could have had Brandon Roy a few years ago, and now the guy we drafted will more than likely be out of the league in the next 2 years. We took a small point guard instead of the 7 footer when we needed a big guy and now he is beasting up in Jersey. It is our choice of personnel rather than coaching that may have us where we are. LB is a very good coach, but we need real management, and people who know how to use the draft to build, and manage cap room.
Bottom line guys is that you can blame the coach all you want to, but the players that we brought here play the games. We dont have a ton of talent compared to the other teams in the league. And until we get smart about how to get talent we will continue to waste our money on role players making 6.5 million a year, and centers making 5.5 million who wear suits...
I still love my bobcats though.
