  1. Magic vs Clippers

    Unfortunately it was predictable when the new management came in and said essentially they wanted another whole season to evaluate what we had. Those of us who watched the last few seasons, and especially last season, didn't want to see any more of it, and were not too happy about that decision. And part of that decision involved trading away multiple draft picks for rookies who look like they're doing well this year, in order not to cause too much disruption to the current roster. This is the result of those choices.

    Maybe so but I don't like that design. You look at the guys who were/are known for their shooting, such as Havlicek, Redick, Ray Allen, etc. They were/are all perpetual motion machines.

    Mario stands around way too much on the offensive end. Watching him in the second half, he basically just stands in one spot most of the time. If he wants more shots, he needs to actually move around and get open sometimes.

    Unfortunately trying to showcase these guys has probably decreased their perceived trading value as often as it’s increased it.

    I think one can want to get rid of Vuch while still having the concerns that Magicman28 expresses above about giving the keys to Biz, Birch, and Spieghts. I also agree that having Payton and Biz out there at the same time means playing 3 vs 5 on offense and I think we’ve seen that can be very problematic. One thing we could do right now, though, would be to split up Vuch and Fournier. Force them both to pass to someone else. I don’t even care which one comes off the bench, just pick one.

    Hezonja was unplayable tonight. Absolutely no effort at all. If we were trying to showcase him for a trade it backfired completely.

    Be interesting to see how we play against the Knicks after the Golden State debacle. We didn’t compete well at all in that game, and this team hasn’t historically bounced back well after big losses. We should, everything else being equal, have a decent chance against the Knicks. Let’s see what we bring to this one.

    Welcome. You have come to the right place if you like to suffer.

    Yes, that's it! :)

    I personally don’t think we should fire Vogel or really even consider it at this point, but losing creates its own momentum. At some point, if you lose more than say 15 in a row, the pressure builds to fire the coach no matter who it is.

    I think it was mostly tongue in cheek because the Memphis coach was fired at 2-8. I totally agree with you about Vogel. How many coaches do we need to fire before people realize it isn’t the coach (other than Vaughn, who was terrible)?

    Don’t give up hope yet. Now we’re 1-9. Lose to the Thunder and Golden State and we could be a lofty 0-11.

    +1 from me. It sure shouldn’t be too much to ask from a group of professional basketball players, all of whom are being paid millions to play their best.

    Payton was out for most of the games we won. I can't accept the idea that a 20 year old rookie makes that much difference. But even if he does, one of the concerns about drafting him was that he was so lean, he might not hold up well in an NBA season.
  15. Magic @ Indy..................

    I agree.
