    I know this thread isn't about this, but I find myself yelling at the TV when our ball-handler is pounding it at the top of the key until there's only 4 seconds left and THEN they make their move to the hoop.

    Are we worried they'll get the ball back and win by 3 points instead of 1? Do they think if we score the other team will win by a hail-mary type shot from half-court? Its been years of this kind of end-of-game strategy and it doesn't make any sense.

    Once he realizes his own limitations, it will benefit the team so much more.
    i call ********. if all you do is tell someone that he can't do something, you'll never find out whether he actually can.

    how many people on this board were saying that evan turner was the worst shooter in the history of basketball prior to the start of this season? and yet, now he's our leading 3P shooter.
    He also isn't very good at involving his teammates and this has been a problem since he got here.
    i also call ******** on this. if andrew bynum was in the lineup and turner was taking 25 shots per game while bynum only got 10, then yeah, i'd say he's doing a poor job of getting his teammates involved. but now? when his teammates are spencer hawes, lavoy allen, nick young? just tell him to chuck it.

    evan turner is no kevin durant, but i swear that if durant was on this team, there'd be people here complaining about him not creating enough scoring opportunities for royal ivey.

    just let the dog hunt. if comes back with dinner in his mouth, great, and if he doesn't, it's not like you had anything on your plate anyway.

    Ricky will always find a flaw in ET's game even after he plays a near flawless game like last night.

    I'm sure it is.

    Read my Challenge thread, take notes, and then return armed with intelligent questions.

    Pay attention. You might learn something.

    I defended Lou. He was here to score (and led the team in scoring). He was our best bench player (second in 6th Man last year), on a great bench team. And he had that character I refer to in the other thread. Fire.

    He also never turned it over and - more often than many think - got others involved. (ie. 10 times more than, say, Nick Young will do.)

    THOSE things I reminded people of. I never said he was a good defender (he was not). But I will NEVER kill a guy who takes a bullet for us fans night in and night out.

    And he had that warrior attitude you can't teach.

    Could we win with 12 Lou's? I'd venture to say we'd be 1-81.

    Sure you do. You just asked me specific questions. And I cannot even imagine a circumstance where I would have asked you one.



    I believe you hate reading what I write because it occurs to you that I know more than you. Much easier to say "I don't care" than "I just learned something!"
