Yes.
sam doesn't need your respect when he has the players.

i've always thought that sam would be our coach until our team was ready to take it to the next level, so i'll continue to believe that it's management's incompetence that he's still our coach.

I am not asking for his respect...I don't want it...I want him to win basketball games so he can earn mine.

Pops, Coach K, Byron Scott. If you had a fricken Carlos Boozer at the end of your bench, you could go to sleep and your team would still win..
If your team has the runner-up MVP, a unique player of a 20-10, Chandler, and one of the best 3 point shooters in the NBA..Then yeah. What can I say?
I mean players develop..But before that, 2 seasons ago with about the same players they were 24-58. I think.
Bro, Smitch made us from 27-55 to a 47-35. With what? A Chris Bosh and a TJ Ford.
You had a Vince Carter, Bosh, Jalen Rose, Donyell Marshall, Rafer Alston(Not half bad since they were younger)and you got 27-55.

we haven't been a losing team in the past two seasons. it's not like he's working with a stacked deck, either. i really don't get all the bitching when our players keep improving. Sam's been coaching for 5 seasons now, (including the Bucks) no coach would be a master of X's and O's that young into their career. i honestly think our biggest problem is the inexperience of the staff that surrounds him and includes him. we need our tex winters, our kevin o'neil...

You guys can keep coming back with pointless remarks of WOW WE'VE DONE WELL IN SPITE OF SMITCH and all of that trying to mock me yet you cant fully comprehend or answer why he continued to push one of the worst coaching substitutions in the history of the sport not once but twice. Go ahead Snoochie.
In the history of the sport? Wow, you really need to examine yourself and the all out hatred you have for Smitch, maybe therapy or something lol.... in the history of the sport... like we were good enough to beat Orlando anyways... the history of the sport... how can anyone take you seriously? How can you take yourself seriously?

For all the people voting Ukic... its not like he was even a lotto pick, how can he disappoint? To me, getting anything from him decent would be awesome, i dont expect much in very limited min. If you are expecting wonders, you are probably expecting too much.

I see Anthony Parker as the disappointment. He's been adequate the past 2 seasons but his age is starting to show. He'll disappoint in that he'll clearly show he's no longer a starting SG/SF in this league and most of that will be due to his age starting to get the better of him.

It's been 3 months..How much can you decline in 3 months?
If Camby is still getting 10+ rebounds and 3 blocks a game at the same age as Parker, then he shouldn't be that bad. Grant Hill is 35..

Whens the last time you remember a coach making that drastic of a change to the starting lineup in the playoffs, putting a guy into the starting lineup who hadnt played the position the entire year basically, who we were trying to integrate at a completely different position for the entire year? Can you think of an example that even comes close, and then when it blew up in his face, trying it again in the most important games of the year?

It was one of the worst coaching moves ive ever seen.

Tayshaun Prince was a SF playing the SF position. Tayshaun Prince played well in that playoffs at the SF position.

Bargs sucked at the SF position and we were down 20 mainly because of our perimeter defence, yet he inexplicably started again the next game putting us into the same hole.

How are they even comparable?

You call me a rug rat yet you're acting like the part with the name calling. You could never enter a discussion without it because you never have anything to add to the conversation. You're acting the part of the angry little kid, not me. Grow up.

tayshaun barely even touched the court that season. i think that's pretty valid being that he was matched up again t-mac for his debut in the starting line-up, in the play-offs.

it's not about positions, it's about match-ups, and neither moon or kapono offered a better solution to hedos skill-set.

here's the bottom-line

you're gonna find that the better match-up wins nine out of ten times

the magic were the better team and held the advantage of match-ups against us

mitchell tried to counter with the player who could have the magic trying to adapt to our match-ups, it didn't work and that's all you have.

btw

it's funny that you'd tell someone to grow-up in any form, napoleon

You know what? Somewhere in me it's saying that Bargs should suck one last season so we can re-sign and lock him up for cheaper if he does do good. We know he's going to improve but if he does really well this season, we may be giving him big bucks Kwame style.
