Im sure ill get back into it, but the sabatical or whatever you wanna call it is fucking great.

Perhaps when the Raptors start caring, maybe i will care more...and for those who think im ghey for doing that, piss off u wankas lol.

technically speaking andreea was the 5 and JO the 3, but it didn't really matter, since all our players were out of position in the 1st quarter, most horrible defensive quarter I've ever seen, it's like they were playing together for the first time, constantly trying to find their spot on the court 15 seconds in the cav's attack ...

and triano gets worse and worse, although I can't blame it for playing Bosh in the 4th, when the situation is as explosive as it is. Let's face it, we would have lost anyway, regardless of who played in the 4th, might as well give Bosh the minutes ...

Bosh with 3 rebounds

Bosh and O'Neal play, everyone else asleep at the wheel

backcourt starters were 2-16

WOW ... can you ever tell that fans are losing interest fast in this team. Big game against a team like the Cavs (albeit we lost big time) and only 20 or so post game comments so far. Looks like fans are slowly starting to not care. Yikes.

DONT START Bargs AT THE 3 AGAIN. STOP FUCKING WITH HIM JUST TO POTENTIALLY GET A WIN OR TWO MORE, AND ITS PROBABLY NOT GONNA HAPPEN ANYWAY.

START JOEY
This, more than anything else, is what I want to see right now.

Moon and Solomon shouldn't see a minute of time for the rest of the season.

I also want to see more Ukic.

Bargs @ the 3.... Jay... WTF are you doing?

According to everywhere I read last night and this morning. JO started at SF and not Andrea. I have no clue what Jay was thinking and I have no clue what's happened to this franchise.

Sounds like it was an awesome game!

Not sure what the hell Triano was thinking with the lineup changes.
Personally i think the team is just going through the motions right now. That's it. Put a fork in 'em. They know they're fucked and they have conceded. Especially against dominant oponents. What's the point of trying when you're going to lose anyways, eh?

Whatever. Last night was a good step towards the overall goal.

The team doesn't seem to care Doc. I remember other forums in the early Sam years when the team sucked but busted their asses out there... support was high. This is different...like fancy said they just seem to be coasting now. That's not cool.

Jose is slow to direct offense on this team, hes bringing the ball up with no energy, in slow motion and never even looks upcourt for fast breaks.

In turn, it's hard to get easy points on set offense ( jumpshooting team that dont set enough hard picks)

He was trying to clog the lane with bigs and zone-up to force CLE into taking tough outside shots.

Unfortunately our big aren't near fast enough to rotate out to shooters.

After we went to a more conventional lineup (esp. with Joey at the 3) we looked much better in Q's 2 & 3 and some of 4.

Another reason why I want Joey in the starting lineup so bad.

I get that, but Cleveland is one of the top 3 point shooting teams in the league. And they sure as hell let us know it yesterday in that first quarter.

I'm tired of clogging the lane. The team has a couple of pretty damn good shooters in Mo Williams, Wally, Daniel Gibson.

The best way to play the Cavs is to say, fuck Lebron, he'll score. Try to contain everyone else.

It didn't happen. Offensively we looked like shit. I'm tired J.O. and his offensive game. I know people here love him, but I'm tired of him. I'm tired of his turnaround jumpers. I hate his Will Solomon expression whenever he thinks he gets fouled and then JOGS BACK ON DEFENSE!!!!! THERE'S INTENSITY!!!!!! Fuck!!!

I hate the fact that Andrea is doing all he can to gain PT but still gets sat with nothing remaining on the clock in the 4th. He had a nice double double but still nothing.

Screw this team; screw our D-League coach, screw our GM, screw our effort.

Um...Triano said thay wanted to make Wally and Z shoot the ball instead of Lebron.

I guess he wasn't aware that a big part of Wally's game is his shot, so it doesn't really make any sesne...
