    They should refund 1/82 of a league pass subscription for having to watch that game. That was not professional basketball. Why is Irving usually out of shape. Does he not use the elliptical when he is sitting out with an injury?

    You know, I wouldn't give a shit about this if it were consistent throughout the year, but last night made this hard to swallow, if that makes sense.

    They said he did running drills the entire time he was out. He was SUPPOSED to be in good shape.

    Did Scott tell him to drive the tank tonight? I just don't understand how you give 0 fucks. One shot that was funny was him yawning on the bench...

    Kyrie should look into triathlons in the offseason.

    He would probably break a nail during cycling and be out 4-6 weeks

    Scott ran 20 minutes of Donald Sloan to one minute of jeremy Pargo, and played both Luke Walton and Samardo Samuels significant minutes. niether Sloan, Walton, nor Samuels saw a full minute against the Lakers. So if you want to know how Scott is driving the tank, you dont really need to look too close at Kyrie.

    That loss is on the schedule. We were playing very well in the first half, and just looked tired in the second.
    I really don't like back-to-backs.

    I was a huge Byron Scott supporter for a while, but now I'm kind of starting to see why people aren't as keen on him.

    He plays some of the worst lineups I've ever seen. I can't think of too many instances where having Daniel Gibson/Tristan Thompson as your main scoring threat works out very well.

    The most managerial experience I have is on NBA2K, which of course, means nothing, but I at least try to have two starters out there at all times, while running the other three bench players.

    Irving-Gibson-Walton-Thompson-Zeller
    Pargo-Waiters-Casspi-Samuels-Varejao
    Sloan-Miles-Gee-Thompson-Zeller

    Those three lineups look WAY better than that sideshow of Sloan-Gibson-Walton-Samuels-Zeller that we saw out there tonight.

    Mix it up a bit. Christ.

    1. Casspi was out tonight so throw that out of the window. 2. Pargo looked awful in his limited minutes vs. LAL last night, so Byron went with Sloan tonight and I bet he goes Pargo on Friday. 3. You can't play your starters 40+ minutes on the second night of a back to back with the 2nd game being on the road. 4. Have you seen who is on the bench? Any coach would have trouble rotating the fodder on the bench, even Phill Jackson and Red. The fact that we are in so many games with this shit group is testament to Byron. I bet when Waiters comes back the rotation goes like this: Irving, Waiters, Gee, TT, Andy - sub in Zeller for TT with 6-4 minutes left in the 1st. Start of 2nd: Pargo/Sloan, Boobie, CJ, Tristan, Zeller - sub in starters around 7 minutes and spell TT with Samardo or Jones. Rinse and repeat in the 2nd half, but keep Zeller or TT on the floor. Settle down, this is not a coaching fault, this is a lack of talent fault.

    Would you rather Byron throw out

    Sloan/Boobie/Omri/SamSam/Zeller?

    Because that right there is one hell of a tanking line up that he could employ, but it would be too obvious, and Stern might fine him for damaging the NBA's best interests.

    I just meant in general. I know that Waiters and Casspi were out tonight.

    I'm probably just getting frustrated, and am gonna look back on that post and feel like a dumbass. Just so disappointing beating the Lakers and then getting our ass handed to us by an average team who didn't have their best player.
