    I still want to see what Jonas did in that meeting.


    I would think someone like Amir would get into Lowry's face. He's probably the most vocal in the locker room in terms of just talking a lot. Maybe Calderon since he's probably vocal as well.

    We have a bunch of vets. Jose has been in the league for 7 years and is in his 30s. Lucas and Anderson are also both 30. Amir has been in the league for 7 years too and learned a lot from Rasheed.

    At what point is it time for Anselmi to "pull out the rug" from under the season? Fire Colangelo, bring in an interim GM to "clean house" as much as possible to get payroll down and subsequentially make a decision on Casey?

    What comes first, "the big trade" or "the big statement?"

    We have to be close to the tipping point don't we?

    Was TJ Ford before you? The TJ vs. Jose threads were legendary. Ink likes a pass-first guard like Nash and Jose. Nothing wrong with that. Myself, I just like an aggressive guard who is going to put pressure on the defence. That is what I have liked about a lot of the guys you listed. I feel Jose doesn't put a lot of pressure on the D, he is too quick to pass up shots that he can make.

    True they are veterans in a sense. But do we have any "winning" veterans? Those who've won championships, or at least played integral leadership roles in the success of any nba team

    I guess Calderon would be our only one, but he wants out.

    Jose has been lazy and Nonchalant this season; which is obvious with his trade request. His passes are soft, and he doesn't have the same passion that he once had. Jose has been horrible.

    Where he made threes a few seasons ago, he has missed this season. Where he made nice passes in the past, he has not done so this season. Where he didn't play D in the past... well it's even worse this season.

    He has to go.

    Lowry should be on the floor for the majority of the game.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen

    I still don't think anything will happen soon. Still waiting how Anderson and fields will play out for us. Maybe changes will come AFTER another tough, losing season

    Lool 7 years in the league is not considered a vet... atleast I dont... Tell me who can Jonas and Ross learn from on our roster? Amir Johnson and John Lucas??? LOOOL

    Guys, like Kidd, Rasheed Wallace, Kurt Thomas, Jason Terry, Ray Allen, Kirilenko, would have been SOLID veterans to add to our team...

    Just look at how Magloire helped this team just with his presence last year.

    BC really put this young roster at a disadvantage and did NOT put them into a position where they could succeed.

    The rookie head coach does not help either.

    Most definitely John Lucas. John Lucas knows so much about the game and what it takes to stay in the game.

    Most of those guys chased rings. I don't see any way we could have acquired most of them. I didn't know vets had to be +35. And speaking about the guy who isn't that old from your list, what makes Kirilenko any more of a vetern than Jose? They are the same age. AK has played a couple of extra seasons in the NBA more than Jose but I don't think the difference is that large between them.

    Casey isn't a rookie.

    3rd season as a head coach is far from a rookie

    The team should do everything possible to try and get Bargnani to start scoring again in order to raise his value. Then we can trade him for something better. Last year we could have gotten a top pick in return for him. Let's try to get something like that again, seeing as how this team is not going to do anything this year. They can be serious all they want, but were not coming back from this shithole we dug ourselves into.

    certainly hope so!

    if Colangelo makes any big moves but doesn't get renewed our ownership deserves a big one of these

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    i have been making these points as well. totally agree. this roster definitely lacks for vets who have seen what it takes to win as pros.

    What?

    You don't think 7 years in the league is a veteran?
