Raps needa trade Bargs for some wing help ASAP. His stock is falling and we need to unload him while he still has some value. BC should try to get Blatche from the Wizards or something too

See, that's why "The Great Khali" would be a perfect fit. He is like 7 foot something and weighs like 300-400 pounds

Jose cant do shit if you either dont go under the screen or hedge, because he'll just throw it out and stand away in the corner. He isnt a leader and he isnt an impact player.
Jose Calderone is not motherfucking Steve Nash or Chris Paul or any other HOF calibre PG.

What he is is a solid floor general that should be the THIRD option on any decent team. He doesn't have the skillset to dominate the game like Paul does so wishing for that is just ridiculous.

That being said he's still MILES better than TJ.... and most of the other PGs in the NBA.

What we need on this team is a perimeter guy who can create off the dribble to take pressure of Bosh AND Jose. Honestly..... those guys did all they could for us to win this game..... the rest of our team just lost it.

Jose hasnt lead us in any game all year besides a couple early season games vs bad teams. Since then hes been an off guard for the most part, not a lead guard.

His play would likely change with a very good ballhandler and creator beside him, and that is probably best since hes proven he cant lead this team on the perimeter and he isnt top level PG talent, but again, if not him or Bosh, who the hell is gonna fetch us a very good swingman unless BC somehow fleeces another team?

Something needs to happen and needs to happen soon because I'm losing my hope for this team and I cant stand another year in the lottery. You cant go from 2 decent playoff years back into the cellar.

I apologize for overreacting but I'm extremely disappointed in Joses regression from last year and I believe he can do much much better than he has so far as a whole this season. Triano needs to approach him in the lockerroom and tell him its his team to lead, and it is, the way we're constructed.

Unfortunately, I think this team needs to be blown up and become completely rebuilt.
Try to keep Bosh, which I think is highly unlikely.

This team needs to be built from the draft. Sadly, the Bargnani pick did set us back a couple years. Can't really blame BC b/c hindsight is 20/20.. let's face it, these things happen!

What I hate about this team right now, is that there is absolutely no sense of direction. What is Colangelo trying to do right now? Is he trying to develop a young team? Is he trying to make quick fixes to try and become a contender right away?

It's not like our team has young guys have alot of potential to look forward to. And our team isn't exactly young either.

Unfortunately, I think it is time to rebuild. Who gives a fuck about making the playoffs when realistically, even when this team is at their best, it's highly improbably they'll make the first round?

I would be much happier with these losses if I knew we were rebuilding, developing a young team, etc... but we AREN'T. We just flat out suck.

Honestly Thrills... I have nothing but huge respect for you dude... you've always been a favourite poster of mine... but I think that you're WAY off base here.

If we're relying on Jose to be this "dynamic, MVP-calibre, game-changing PG" then we're in for a world of disappointment.

Jose is a solid, solid PG.... but that's not his game.

You may as well ask Biedrins to be Tim Duncan.

We are so unlucky. We are almost even from the 3 pt line as they made 2 more. Turnovers we were -1 for the night. We killed them on the boards tonight 49-37. They were a + 10 from the FT line. We were +1 in assists. We shot like shit tonight we took 93 shots and they took 76. Where was AP and JK tonight ? We had great looks all night just unbelieviable that we lost this game. Hell we did not need JO tonight to win this one. Well this game is over. Lets get ready for Denver on Wednesday.

WE should see the pick we get and trade it for some young players. Trade some people this year also. WE might as well tank now

building "around" Bosh was/is a bad idea from the start.
