Claw Marks: golden showers


Another stormy night. The forum is responding with more angst than previously. Aside from how we could obviously use players like Ellis and Curry, the golden boys, Bargnani and Colangelo, are starting to look a little tarnished to some. Brrrrr…I feel a cold wind blowing.

Yes, this is really looking like a bottom 3 team.

Barbosa’s injured, the aggressive defense they were putting in ain’t happening, their most important players have one dimensional games, they have no dribble penetration, they have little post presence, they can’t impose their will on anyone, they don’t get calls, the young guns are too young, teams have enough material now to scout and take away what they are doing right, teams know to come at Reggie because he must guard and therefor not rebound and their only win was against Cleveland, who had an incomplete lineup if I remember right.

Never mind what it looks like on paper. They give too much back to teams to be a good team. This could end up worse than anyone predicted.

Good game. We are just 75 losses away from Kyrie Irving.

Thank you Rodgers and Cogeco for another evening of a shitty link that freezes every 15 seconds.

As a proponent of the tank ideal, I’m pleased. A loss in close, entertaining fashion is all I can ask for. Yay-urns.

I’m totally finished with Bargnani. As a player, he’s a complete pile of shit. I don’t give a fuck if you’re 7 feet and you can hit step back threes. The one play I’m recalling is when Curry threw a sick and slick left-handed bullet pass to Lee. Reggie did just enough to bother the shot, so Lee missed the first attempt. Bargnani’s man hangs around the rim while there’s still a loose ball in the air, while Andrea chugs down the court, leaving his man to tip the ball back to Lee for an uncontested layup. Leaving Reggie all alone in the paint.

This guy is garbage. Pure unadulterated trash. I’ve defended him enough. That play was the last straw for me.

Doesn’t anyone else find it strange that we haven’t heard anything concrete about his situation given this is the last year of his contract? Could it be the MLSE are actually not convinced with him? I am certainly not.

For all this talk about not being able to bring in anyone better i don’t see where that’s coming from. I think people are mistaking his charisma for his actual success. He comes across as flashy, as well spoken, as a big name, but when you go beneith the surface Brian Colangelo has been a big failure.

Ammo

I agree. I think he is very persuasive which may help him get some of the things that he wants, the problem is I don’t think he knows how to run a basketball team.

So he gets things he wants but they aren’t helping us.

Someone has to be responsible for the repeated failures of the club. The only constant over the past number of years has been Colangelo.

I don’t see how you can resign him right now. I’d like to see a strong argument for it based on his performance. It’s not even just about individual trades (he does win some of those), it is about overall strategy.

I just don’t see what his is.

lack of stability is the primary cause of the problems with this franchise. i want to see something properly built and constructed. that will take time. starting all over from scratch again and again is killing us. i’m fine with locking in to bc and triano for several more years and seeing what they could do with a real chance to build something cohesive. firing and trading everyone sure as hell hasn’t been working.
