    Yep. Karl was brought in with the expectation of winning and making the team better. Playing a rookie who is struggling is obviously not something he'd be interested in.

    Amir "can" play, but "should" be sat for his health. Just because he's limping around doesn't mean he can't play, but it does mean he should be rested instead. Coaches sit players all the time even...

    I dunno, I just don't see GS being willing to have a $93M+ team salary next year. They're at $77.5M with only 8 players under contract. Signing Green for $16M puts them at $93.5M with only 9 players....

    GS has a salary of $72.5M this year, and already has a committed salary of $77.5M next year without Draymond Green. They'll save some money by Lee coming off the books for 2016-17, but that's also...

    Casey has eyeballs and he decides the minutes. I'd guess the doctors are telling Casey that Amir is hurt but could play through the pain, and Casey's decision is to let him play through the pain....

    I really don't see it being any easier to sign big name guys in 2016 than 2015. They're all very likely to stay with their teams, and there will be a lot more teams with cap space in 2016 than there...

    I actually really like James Johnson as our starting SF. He's been pretty phenomenal since we moved him into the starting lineup, like one of the best SF's in the league. His PER is 19, his TS% is an...

    You hire Thibs immediately if he becomes available. He's a no doubt upgrade over Casey. Almost every other coaching option will have some doubt attached as to whether they'll improve the team. Thibs...

    I like the self awareness and knowing he needs to get better. Complete opposite of Casey who always says we just need to keep doing the same things until the shots start to fall.

    Damn, I really didn't know much about Wiltjer, and had never even heard of Hanlan or Rathan-Mayes. Things are definitely looking great for the future of Canada Basketball.

    Someone's gotta let him know 3's are easier to make when shot by a set guy off a pass, not by pulling up and fading left after sloppily using a screen. Ball movement = open shots = more 3's made....

    JJ is fantastic. I think signing him to an extension is more important than bringing back Amir or Lou, and that's not a knock on those guys, JJ has just been that damn good.

    Don't we all. Lowry had a nice stretch where he was one of the top 5 PGs in the game. We've just completely given up on running the horns offense and gone iso heavy.

    JV was gassed at the end of one game where he got 35 minutes in roughly 3 quarters. Casey easily could have managed his minutes to give him 35 and have him in for the final 5 minutes where we shit...

    I'm not sure favoring 3's means the coach is using analytics. It's not like no one took 3's before SportVU came along. If Casey was using analytics, he would see that long fade away 2's are the worst...
