Default Shape boxes

You know those boxes with openings of different shapes in the top for kids to play with. Each opening is a shape, and their are blocks, and the only way for an infant to get the blocks into the box is to put the square through the square opening, triangle through the triangle opening, etc, etc.

Right now, Triano is forcing blocks into their wrong holes. He's trying to make triangles into squares and circles into triangles.

Even with Hedo taking the all the clutch shots, he's forcing that role onto Hedo. Maybe that isn't Hedo's role with this team. He's never been Kobe Bryant, he's never been Lebron, he's always had other clutch players playing with him. Rashard Lewis and Jameer Nelson were pretty good clutch players last season as well. Maybe that does end up being Hedo's role, but right now he hasn't earned the ball in the last minute, it's just being given to him. That role is being forced upon him.

Instead of moving the shapes around, and trying them out in different holes, and finding the pieces that fits, he's stubbornly trying to force the shapes into the wrong holes.

Perhaps Collangelo isn't giving him the right shapes as well. He's a twisted provider, giving Triano 3 squares and 2 triangles, instead of the 5 different shapes needed to fit into the box. Bosh and Bargs are both squares, and their is no circle to be found. Maybe Hedo is a triangle, but Triano is forced to pound that triangle into the octagon hole because of pressure from Collangelo.

Triano made up his mind about what this team would look and play like before ever seeing them together. Then he's done nothing to alter his plan since Reggie was hurt. He just sticks with what he envisioned in spite of reality. It's time to find ways to get wins by trying to alter reality a little bit, by actually having the kind of impact a coach can have on a game. Make some tough choices, or reality will completely assert itself in his place before too long.

I can't go through another season like that. They aren't actually that far off. We need a coach that will actually do the job of coaching. I know a lot of people insist that is x's and o's, but as we can see there is a lot more that has to be done in the job.

Exactly, it's the job of the coach to see whats working and what isn't and adjust. Wether it's matchups, chemistry, philosophy or whatever. It's his job to put the players in the best possible position to win based on their strengths. And right now he's being narrow minded and stubborn.

Well its 20 games into the season and we are #1 in the East in offence. We are scoring on average over 104 pts in a game.So why is everyone in a tiz we are 50% there.lol

Triano and his staff will have to make some changes with their rotations. i.e. time to treat DD like a starter on our team. With what we have DD should be getting more burn.We don't have to panic just yet, call it a mini slump. Do something like they do in baseball , they change the batting order with a couple of guys, they still get their at bats just at a differant time. We need a little shake up and we can always go back if required later on.

Tonight we did have hands in the face, but hell everything that they shot was going in, take a look at the shot chart and see them making shots all over the place. The funny part of it tonight was when they did miss they got the rebound, probably because our guys thought the ball was going in on the original shot.lol

In conclusion we are only 1 1/2 games out from a playoff spot, sure its been rough lately and thats not bad the way we have played. Our team will get their shit together, we will get that ticket that gives you the chance to compete for the championship. There are 8 tickets available all we need is 1.

Sorry, but this team is shit and shit has to hit the fan before they get it through their fukin thick skulls that they couldn't outscore a highschool basketball team with the kind of defense (no defense) they have been showing.
