    SJ is the guy who says the stuff he knows fans and media wants to hear and then when the cameras are off he cuts corners in practice.

    I think it is a few guys (Stanley, KCP, Drummond, Morris, to name a few).

    Did you look up who left after only one year of college? I knew SJ and Drummond only played one.

    Oh, I missed that one year in college part. SVG must be talking about Stanley there.

    Dre left after one year too, and it's easy to see he isn't hitting the weight room very hard.

    Another qualifier was "you've been in the league four or five years" The players who are in that band are:
    Morris, Baynes, Tobias, Reggie, Leuer, Drummond.

    That comment is probably directed at Drummond more than anybody else.

    I think one of KCP or Drummond won't be back next year.

    Is it possible when a team is losing, fans focus on the negative attributes of players and when the team is winning, fans focus on the positive ones?

    So generous. Is this including the posts of @BillLaimbeer@BillLaimbeer and @BallDon'tLie@BallDon'tLie?

    Dude, when did you become a philosopher?

    Is it possible to have lived long enough not to care, and then one begins to mumble true-to-power?
    If you want to become Mr. Sunshine, buy an ice-cream truck.
    And then what happens, when there are no takers...even for the obligatory free one?

    My grades for this year:

    Reggie: D+ (I gave him a plus for those animal crackers)
    KCP: C- (the minus for contract he doesn't deserve)
    Harris: B+ (that plus...those true confessions at church is a good thing)
    Morris: C- (coming from Philly, there should never be an inconsistent minus or an average grade)
    Leuer: C (I still ask: where did he go...searching for that heart?)
    Drummond: D+ (Isiah had a mommy too, but he let her go)
    Baynes: B (always, the far away Aussie tenacity, who understands the wayward winds of the didgeridoo's song)
    Ish: B+ (what...me worry)
    Stanley Johnson: C- (the minus...you are not mad enough at yourself)
    Beno: B+ (professional all-the-way and you don't need that man-bund)
    Boban /Bullock/Gbinjie/Ellenson/Hilliard: Inconclusive
    SVG the coach: C- (Burgess Meredith coming out of the fall-out shelter safe and discovering his myopic vision...Twilight Zone)
    SVG the GM: He is not a GM, Bower is: B- (for Bower that minus is for wasting Gore's money)
    SVG President of Basketball Operations: D (for delusional exhibitions that lets his coach go on and on).
    Overall team grade: C- (a much tougher crowd coming up)

    Not only it is possible, it's natural, it's human nature.
