I would vote Bargs, but i expect to be disappointed because i feel he is one of the most overrated bigs in recent memory.

This will be Bargs' most important year of his basketball life so I cant vote for him because I think he will come through and eat the pressure for breakfast and return to rookie form where we all loved him. I'm really hoping he added 1-2 pet moves and his legs are back this year where he'll be knocking down those easy jumpers.

I would have voted for Sam but he sucks every year so I cant be any more disappointed with him than I was last year because he never learns as shown by his dumbass starting lineup that destroyed any chance we had in ORL.

I voted for Roko because I think its going to take him at least til the allstar break to get used to the speed of the game and become a contributor on a night to night basis, where most seem to think he'll come in and play right away and be fine. It wouldnt surprise me if he started off as the backup, and after a couple bad games where Jose has to play like 40mpg his minutes get given to Solomon who comes in and plays solid for 15 mpg

It has to be either Calderon or O'Neal assuming Bosh will play as he has been. Because these are the players with the highest expectations, therefore they will dissapoint the most. But hey, why focus on dissappointments? Why are we not asking 'which player will surprise us the most with his performance?'.

I could see Roko or Moon losing playing time to one of the deeper bench guys. But I also see Jose spoonfeeding Moon 6pts a game and making the offense easy for him, so I'll go with Roko although I don't have high expectations for him to begin with.

Just because hes in the NBA doesnt mean hes any good at his job. Hes proven that time and time again.

And again, if we went by your train of thought none of us would ever criticize anyone ever because THEYRE IN THE NBA AND WE'RE JUST FANS. Your thought process never ceases to amaze. THEY MAKE MILLIONS WE DONT SO THEY SHOULD BE SHIELDED FROM ANY KIND OF CRITICISM BECAUSE THEY KNOW MORE ABOUT BBALL THEN WE DO EVEN IF THEY SUCK.

No one in the NBA should be fired ever because theyre in the NBA and are great. Why did Oneill get fired?

By that logic SJ you can never say anything about another player or coach again.

Do you actually expect Sam to be a good coach, if not then how could you be disappointed when he proves once again that he isn't?

He hasnt improved at all since his rookie year as a coach, what would lead me to believe he would become a good coach now? HE STARTED Bargnani AT THE 3 FOR THE FIRST TIME ALL YEAR IN A MEANINGFUL GAME IN THE MOST IMPORTANT GAMES OF OUR SEASON. How can any of you believe in him after that? And not only did he do it once, he did it again after it blowing up in his face the first time. The guy is a hard headed clown who doesnt learn from his mistakes and is probably one of the worst coaches ever at making in game adjustments.

Dude.

Guys take chances all the time, when they dont work they get scorched, when they do they are hero's.

Same dudes at the end of the day.

Whos the last coach you remember that changed his regular starting lineup for a good chunk of the year in game 1 of the NBA playoffs, starting a guy who didnt play at that position all year at all, when there wasnt a significant injury that forced him to make the switch? I can MAYBE understand that he thought going big vs Turk MIGHT work, but after it blows up in your face in the 1st qtr, how can you not only start Bargs again in the 2nd half, but game 2 as well? Its one of the worst coaching moves in the history of civilization.

That's the same reason I don't like the decisions made by Sam. Also, during the season KApono rarely got minutes and Delfino got alot, in the playoffs Kapono got a lot of minutes and Delfino barely got any

name a coach that had such a brutally unreliable bunch of guys going in.

Toronto didn't underachieve Thriller.

You were surprised they lost?
