I hope everyone is feeling good, it being so quiet here.

I don't watch games, so I could be shooting blanks here, but there is just no way that Sabonis had to get injured, to give Bitadze more minutes. Even some stats indicate that we produce better without Domantas.

I guess reality came to town to show us that we have 3 bigs who all play widely the best at the center position. (input from game viewers welcome)

I'm very happy Aaron is still around to develop his talent, because Bjorkgren also needs time to develop into a very good coach.

Positive vibes for the rest of the season. Our players should never tank, KP should be doing that a bit more for a better future.

I don't expect either one to happen. What I mean is, Aaron is what he is and I think that is all he will be. I also don't think Bjorkgren is capable of becoming a very good coach.

This team needs a MASSIVE change. Sometime back I described them as one very good player (Sabonis) and a bunch of also rans. I still stand by that.

Again I contend that this is just a messed up season due to the new coaching staff, Victor blowing things up, Caris late arrival, injuries, lack of practice helping build familiarities playing together. I also question if Nate can take control in a manner that the players respect and enjoy playing for at the same time playing hard to win. I see times with this team that they play well together, but more times that the defensive switching lacks or lazy closeouts on the 3 point line. Looking at wins and losses 19 of 26 losses are 10 points or less. 10 of 21 wins are 10 points or less. So they're not horrible every night just don't seem to have enough to be that dominant winning team it takes to win in playoffs. A couple of the positive things happening is they are tanking by default of recent injuries just not having enough to nightly beat their opponents, and Goga and Sumner are seeing the court. Currently in 9th place in East, only 4 western teams with worse records, and currently 11th worst team in league.

Good to know about also rans :D .

Aaron is still a good fit next to Brogdon, they just have the find the right motivation/insights.
