Pretty amazing that we haven't had ANY good players for the last 10 years.

Damn BC for not putting together an all-star team here for Sam to work with! Damn him to hell!!

Has Sam and BC been here for 10 years? Wow time flies.

Hey when you're a great 3 point shooting team, but have no interior presence and no wing defenders you might as well go and sign the best three point shooter out there who can't play a lick of D.

it sucks we have a guy that CAN shoot 3pts @ 50% yet we barely play him, and when he does play he can even get an open 3, Sam has to go. End of story!

I want Mitchell fired too. We have not improved on D from the first day that we hired Smitch. The only thing that makes us marginally better on D is having Jermaine O'Neal.

Acie usually i agree with you, but this team is far from shit. Hell, I would say that our starting lineup is one of the better ones in the league.

We're playing like shit, but we're a good team.

Something is definately wrong.

Actually we've gotten better defensively each year under him. The stas don't lie.

Thats is true, but its easy to improve on nothing.

Most of the teams defense comes from scrambling, not from set defensive schemes.

Fire Mitchell and get every fan that obviously knows more then him about coaching and basketball in general (hell is was only a damn fine hardnosed and smart NBA player himself) take over this team, with no rebounding, wait let me guess YOU will make them rebound and defend and not take drubbings in the paint, YOU will make Bargnani a superstar, YOU will make JO return to allstar status, awesome, i vote fire him!!

Yup, that's what inspired me to start this thread.

Jose doesn't close out fast enough and can't stay in front of his defender, but I blame Mitchell for that.

Kapono is a pylon, but I blame Mitchell for that.

They don't box out, but I blame Mitchell for that etc, etc.

Sam Mitchell is by far the least of our problems.With the turnover on this roster over the last 3 seasons, Mitchell has done a great job bringing his teams together and getting what he has out of a mostly less then stelar talent especially in 06-07 with 9 new players.

Our prblem right now is the lack of depth, lack of a consistent 3!

I somewhat disagree..., but yeah an injury to anyone in our starting lineup not named Jamario Moon and we're in bigtime trouble.

JO/Moon/AP we can maybe afford to lose for a few games here and there imo.Mainly because AB could do an abmerable job for JO and Moon/AP are extremly inconsistent.

But Jose/Bosh going down would absolutely cripple us.Can you imagine having Soloman play 30-35 minutes.He's OK for 10-15 but anymore then that and we're in big trouble.Him and Ukic would have 12 TO between the two per game!And nobody can replace what Bosh does!

This time last year I might've been on that petition, but I think he's actually done a pretty good job so far this year. if anyone told me that we'd be 4-2 to start the season before it even started i'd be happy with that. he definitely understands his players on a personal level and that's something that doesn't show up on the stat sheet. i'd say the big thing that's hurt us thus far is our lack of depth, and most of that has nothing to do with smitch or BC, but the salary cap structure, sending three guys to indiana for one, and a bunch of misers at the top of MLSE.
