Unless I have lost my mind, I think I can say Mike Woodson has lost his.

All that is to preface, I think this quote is one of the biggest indictments against what he is dong as coach and maybe even what the organization deems important."He could have been sick and didn’t realize it because he had a lethargic look about him," Woodson said. "So he could have been. And I was steady wearing him out and wearing him down with minutes.
"But my whole thing with the minutes and everybody talking about him playing too many, I was just trying to push for him to make that All-Star team. Because that to me, was extremely important for Joe, for our team and for our entire organization."
Are you serious? We have worn down our best player so the Hawks are represented in the all star game? We have taken away touches for Al Horford in the post so our best player can play one on five in the same area? We are more worried about one player making a meaningless team so that he can play in a meaningless game than we are winning actual games? Is Woodson that far out of touch with reality? I feel like I am taking crazy pills.
We're seeing the same old crap, wearing down starters with heavy minutes to the point where the whole team starts flagging, to be burned in the postseason.
