He's ripping the team new a**holes.

SVG obviously deserves the blame tonight, but a lot of guys had no effort in that 4th quarter.

They played us, plain and simple. :banghead: :nonono:



Being a fan of this team is not good for my mental saneness. Another inexplicable loss after having a second half double digit lead. All in the same way, im **** tired of this ****. They make every team play like superman because they go on those stupid funks were they turn the ball over and play matador defense. Might as well have some damm orange cones playing defense. I cant **** stand this ****.

SVG said in the Bulls postgame that he probably wasn't going to play Cook because of the matchups the Bobcats would throw at them.

But when Hedo can't make an outside shot, you need to throw Cook in there to see if he was still hot.
I'll be pissed if he doesn't play Saturday vs. the Blazers, this is a pure jump shooting game.

One small thing... why do all of Dwight's jumpers have to be bank shots? Since Tim Duncan, everyone wants to shoot bank shots.

SVGs rotations suck. he changes it too much from game to game. one night cookie is the first one in the game the next auggie. once in a while jj plays. one night arroyo doesn't play. one night keyon hardly plays. jameer misses an entire second quarter of play. bogans start. evans starts. arroyo starts. its like he doesn't even know what he is doing when it comes to rotations. make the other teams adjust to us not us adjusting to them. i hate when coaches do that. it obviously shows the other team is controling the game and pace and whatever.

It would look ugly as hell otherwise. Big men, particularly Dwight, are too strong to really have a normal jumper.

It kills me more physically, I swear I've got high blood pressure from this team, and I'm only 19. :(

Dwight doesn't have the touch to shoot it normally and the backboard really helps a ton. Plus, you can be more accurate with the backcourt than without.

These guys are bunch of freaking cupcakes. They didnt play hard in the 4th because they were too damm demoralized that they gave up a 19 point lead in about 5 mins. But its their fault for being too **** soft, which is why the lead dissapeaded in an instant. They are soft and they had no real leader step up. No one step up and showed leadership.

It takes a mentally tough and very mature team to play hard against inferior teams. We were coasting half way through the third and I saw us losing it then and I am not surprised in the least. We play up to or down to out competition all the time.

At least someone speaks with my thoughts. Last night I got worried when I heard SVG say in the press conference that Cook wouldn't probably play tonight due to matchups. Honestly, aren't we the best team? Aren't teams supposed to adjust to our style of play? When we fans say that we play down to our competition and don't understand why... well, here's a big part of your answer. We change our game style on defense every night to match up the opponent, and since in ball you can't sub between every defense-offense transition (lol) we have to execute the offense with the players that match up better on defense, not the ones who are better at executing the offense.
I do understand that this is a part of the "defensive mentality" Van Gundy has, but we really need to make the other team adjust more than we do. These constant rotation modifications are a big part of our inconsistency.

I bottle it up and let it evaporate in my sleep.
