Second Unit !!!!!
 
Tonight our second unit cost us the game. Philly's starting 5 were a minus 20 and we lose by 10. Everytime we subed in we just fell further behind...to the point that all flow was gone. Our starters had their best start in the first quarter. When Lowry comes back i like to see him come off the bench and spark the bench. We seem to be a better defencive team with our players from last year. Shit we have to try something differant because with or without our new additions something has to change !!!

We suck right now ...so what happens with draft pick we gave to Houston !!!! We got to give Ross some burn.....hes a shooter.....like to see withmore minutes.......John Lucas the 3rd sucks sit his ass on the bench and give Ross his minutes....Lucas is a shooter going no where and Ross is a shooter we drafted to shoot for us

Bargn88 11-10-2012 11:18 PM

I do agree that the 2nd unit has been horrible lead by 2/25 John Lucas the Third.

But to play Lowry coming off the bench is insane.

MrClutch 11-10-2012 11:22 PM

did ed davis get hurt though? he only played 3 mins

halphbreedballer 11-10-2012 11:27 PM

All I can say is it feels like we are back to square one.

I know I've been away from this place for a couple years, but that's crazy talk rap123. You want our best player to come off the bench now because of a terrible start to the season? What's next? Fire Colangelo and replace him with Richard Peddie? Yikes! :sigh:

Awhhhh shiet, look whos back. Hello Dr.J how's it going man? :dancing:

With Lowry starting....

We were a possession away from beating Indiana.

We were only a possession down (2 points) against Brooklyn with 1 minute to go.

We beat Minnesota.

We were very competitive.

No, Lowry should not be moved to the bench.

Calderon's value is in playing against 2nd units. Did you not see him get butt-punched by Holiday tonight? Lowry's defense is needed against the opposing 1st tier PGs. Calderon is a better match-up against bench PGs.

raptor123 11-10-2012 11:54 PM

I could have my numbers wrong but Philly playing back to back games used a 9 player rotation and we go with a 11 player rotation. What gives here ?????????? DC play Caldy, Anderson, DD, Bargs and JV the entire game.....throw in Amir and Ross in there and we win the game tonight....!!!! Could have been a coaching blunder this evening folks !!!!

Or, its because the Sixers are a solid squad and very underrated team this season. Your not giving them enough credit dude. They're a great young team that will make noise again in the East over the next couple seasons. ;)

Well, until you file for divorce from Jose I don't foresee that changing. ;)

Good to be back bro and great to see ya.

Bargn88 11-11-2012 12:32 AM

I'd love to see Raptor123 sign up on Realgm and comment on Calderon lol.

That would be a great show man o man.

They are like sharks there, just waiting to attack.
