    Seriously... We don't deserve playoffs if we can even beat the Wizards and an Irving-less Cavs! Kinda pathetic!

    Well hopefully this game proved a point to BC again as the final straw of whether or not Bargnani is a BUST.

    Luke Walton is a skilled player. Wow. Man trolled us hard.
    I missed the game tonight but Luke Walton has played very well the past ten or so games. He's the team's best facilitator and has even made a few wide open shots lately.

    Teams leave him wide open because he shoots below 40% despite almost every shot being a wide open shot.

    I like him; he does not complain about his role and gives some of the funniest interviews (as he should being the son of Bill).

    Hey T.dot how can you have JV as your pic and root for a guy his exact opposite? Pretty sure you are trolling major there is no such thing as a diehard Bargnani fan....

    I was joking...

    My point is that I would really like a coach who runs a system and knows how to use the players he's got.

    *I don't even trust him defensively anymore if he can justify sitting JV for such long stretches to himself...Is there a minute cap on JV's play? He was the biggest defensive factor for the team most of the time he was on the floor.

    I have mad respect for Jerry Sloan. I saw a recent interview with him and he looks and sounds like he has aged 25 years since he stopped coaching. Sadly I dont think we will see him coach again, I suspect he has some health issues.

    On this game. Are we allowed to boo Casey? I am not sure since the boo police have been in full force. That man should be boo'd for sitting his productive bigs in the 4th. He did the same thing to ED b4 the trade. Ed would have amazing 1st and 3rd quarters and sit in the 4th. Nobody cared because they hated ED for his play in his first 2 years here. Now its happening to JV and we get this rookie excuse but I am not buying it. He just loves to go small in the 4th out of some obligation to his BFF AA.

    What the raps need right now is a damn good offensive coordinator, and let Casey do what he is "supposed" to be good at. Seasons been lost for a while, but I liked the optimism till it ended. If ANYBODY can develop ANY form of consistency on the three ball, it would make such a difference in these games. I mean 10% while taking TWENTY!!!! shots!

    I'm not sure about things with Sloan...I know there was a lot of talk in the summer that he would gladly come out of retirement if the right opportunity were there, but it could've just been BS out in the media....And maybe coaching is what kept him young

    I hope I am wrong because he is a fantastic coach. Really undervalued because of this leagues mantra about championships being the one and only thing that defines you. He just looked really really old and tired in that interview. Made me concerned for his health it was that visible.

    The camera is not always flattering. Dude is 70. He's not young.

    I agree about the championships thing...Yeah, he had Stockton and Malone....then the other main players on those finals teams were Hornacek. Ok, a good player....and then Bryon Russell, Howard Eisley, Greg Ostertag, Jeff Foster, Shandon Anderson, Antoine Carr...Frankly all those guys are scrubs.

    Shut up. Bargnani is fucking trash 15min without anything. The dude can't play D or rebound and he's 7 feet tall, i don't see how you can support such a worthless Bigman. I say amnesty him, the best we're going to get for this guy is another teams garbage and we already have enough of that in Lucas and Anderson

    Dwane Casey is a crap coach. Bring in someone else honestly. You have guys like Greg Popovich who can play his bench and almost beat the miami heat. Then you got Dwane Casey over here who has a talented group of young players and cant beat a banged up bottom feeder coming off a back to back who is missing their franchise player. Pathetic doesn't even begin to describe his coaching and rotations.

    Really dude, You just compared one of the all time legends in coaching with an average coach. You really think its that easy to get somebody like Pop. Pop is 1 in a million coach, you get one you keep him for life. Calling Casey Crap and asking for a new coach every time they have a bad game is ridiculous. Let em go through their growing pains, watch some painful basketball and get on with your life. Casey obviously has to play "some" players over the others either b/c of management or for whatever crazy reason. Do I question him sometimes, yeah all the time, calling him crap for trying new things and failing utterly.... yeah I get it, but understand his philosophy has been adjusted. Thats what happens when you get new players and your playing style changes. I like the playoff optimism, but did anyone REALLY think they were getting in. I'm more than happy with the 9th seed this year, just hate losing the "gimme" game.

    i vaguely remember a playoff game in the 90's with hannah storm reporting pre-game for NBC that jerry sloan had recently quit his 3 pack a day habit, or some truly unfathomable amount.

    i also hope you are wrong that decade's of that shit has not caught up with him
