    I don't know. I would feel more comfortable if the Hornets could be substitured for. Maybe the local elementary team?

    Here's some quotes from AI:


    Wink wink. (cough bench Rip cough).


    He's begging MC to do his job.

    You know what i hope we get the 6th seed somehow. If we play ORL in the PO's and knock them out, i will consider this season successful.

    And luckily we don't have to face OKC in the PO's.:nailbiting:

    ....or indy, or Larry Brown....

    Best news of the night were AI calls to coach: lead us! It means that presumably too big egos Rip and AI have understand that there is no chemistry and there are more important things than who starts or who gets 40 min per game.

    that's why I so desperately wanted them to lose this game. There is no better teacher of humility than losses.

    hint: Rip from bench does not work well....

    Or rather it makes no difference. If this team wants to go back to being successful, they will stick him on the training table with a pantload of frozen bananas, and ask him not to give any interviews until June.

    You hit the nail on the head BIG-TIME. Rodney's best chem was woth (1) Tay (2) AI. And as you mentioned earlier, AI seems to really like Stuck and really wants the young fella to shine. Those 3 together really, really looked good. AI also looks real good with AA on the court which is easy for him because our Aaron plays just like AI's best friend from Philly Aaron Mckie. RIP IS THE ODD MAN OUT! Sheed doesn't mind defering, hell he prefers it to a fault. RIP IS THE ODD MAN OUT. Either (1) Trade AI (2) Waive AI or (3) Trade Rip PRONTO!!! One of those three is inevitable, if you allow this to play out until the end of the season the damage may be irreperable.

    He called out Rip too. Eli quoted Ai as saying, "His (AI) game will come around in the playoffs when the real scorers reveal themselves" I'm paraphrasing so it's not exact, but from what I see right now AI is determined to prove he should hold down this spot not Rip, and Rip is trying to do the same thing too, and we wonder what the chemistry issue is all about.

    AMEN! I said it once I'll say it again, running the Ripfense is slow, predictable and ineffective. Ripfense (LMAO) dude StarJones is so smart, she's like the anti.....nawwww I'm leave it alone........

    So wouldn't that mean that both of them are causing the chemistry issue ?

    I didn't hear that comment from AI and i'm not sure if he was referring to Rip from that quote initself,but if it was an indirectly directed at him, AI is an idiot. He really has no room to talk about the PO's or "real scorers". Rip has carried a team through series and won a championship and gotten deep into the PO's the majority of his career. AI has scored his way to an empty finals trip, numerous 1st round exits, and missing the PO's. There's more to being successful than scoring, and until he realizes that he's going to continue to be sitting at home in May/June.

    DEN is not a bunch of scrubs and they couldn't even win more than one PO game with him.

    AI is like the anti Billu . . . nvm i'll leave it alone.

    YouTube - U can't coach this (original)

    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this

    My, my, my lineup hits me so hard
    Makes me say "Oh, my Joe"
    Thank you for blessing me
    With a mind to coach and a hype seat

    It feels good, when you know you're down
    A super dope homeboy from the Oak town
    And I'm known as such
    And this is a team, uh, you can't coach

    I told you, homeboy
    (Can't coach this)
    Yeah, that's how we living and you know
    (Can't coach this)

    Look at my eyes, man
    (Can't coach this)
    Yo, let me bust the funky lyrics
    (Can't coach this)

    Fresh new kicks, advance
    You gotta like that, now, you know you wanna shoot
    So move, outta your seat
    And get a point guard and catch this heat

    While it's rollin', hold on
    Pump fake a bit and let 'em know it's goin' on
    Like that, like that

    Cold on a mission so fall them back
    Let 'em know, that you're too much
    And this is a team, uh, you can't coach

    Yo, I told you
    (Can't coach this)
    Why you standin' there, man?
    (Can't coach this)
    Yo, sound the bell, fouls called, sucka
    (Can't coach this)

    Give me a frozen fruit
    Makin' 'em sweat, that's what Arn gives 'em
    Now, they know
    You talkin' about the Curry, you talkin' about the coach

    That's hype and tight
    Trainers are sweatin' so pass them a wipe
    Or a tape, to learn
    What's it gonna take in the Palace to burn?

    The charts? Legit
    Either work hard or you might as well quit
    That's word because you know
    Can't coach this, Can't coach this

    Break it down
    Stop, Curry time

    Go with the funk, it is said
    If you can't shoot to this
    Then you probably are dead

    So wave your hands in the air
    Bust a few moves
    Laughing on the bench don't care

    This is it, for a winner
    Shoot to this and you're gonna get thinner
    Move, slide your rump
    Just for a minute let's all do the bump, bump, bump

    Yeah
    (Can't coach this)
    Look, man
    (Can't coach this)

    You better get hype, boy
    Because you know you can't
    (Can't coach this)
    Ring the bell, school's back in

    Break it down
    Stop, Curry time

    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this

    Break it down
    Stop, Curry time

    Every time you see me
    The Curry's just so pimp
    I'm dope on the floor and I'm magic on the seat

    Now why would I ever stop doing this?
    With others coachin good teams that just don't hit
    I've toured around the world, from Detroit to L.A.
    It's "Curry, go Curry, MC Curry, yo, Curry"
    And the rest can go and play

    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this
    Can't coach this

    Yeah, Can't coach this
    I told you, Can't coach this
    Too hype, can't coach this
    Get way outta here, Can't coach this

    I can't see anybody saying this at the beginning of the season. How the mighty have fallen.

    I did like the other quote from Dre that "Flip must be rolling over in his hammock."

    That's what i was thinking, couple of weeks and it's the all star game. Shouldn't the Pistons start having some consistency at this point. I wouldn't expect, that if they keep continuing this after the all star brake then suddenly at the playoff everything will be alright.

    Yeah i know things take time but geesh am getting tired of MC talking about "we're just adjusting".

    Well maybe players are getting injured cause they play out of position or to many minutes.

    Wish I had skipped this one on the DVR and just took a quick glance at the box score. Not pretty.

    Seemed like Curry was really micro managing this one. How does Rodney get 2 chances to attack the paint early, then get relegated to the spot-up guy role until the 4th quarter? He never got into the game because Curry was forcing it to the vets all night long. Maybe Stuckey needs to just go for it on his own, but Curry should recognize this and call his number. The Vet approach worked semi-well offensively for about 20 minutes, then bit us in the ass as our old guys wore down, and their young guys got that extras bounce to their step.

    We should have been up by 10 after that first quarter. Unfortunately, small ball led to about 100 offensive rebounds, and had our PG trying to guard Small forwards in the post on every possession. Even more hilarious due to the fact that one of their SF's is as big as our Center.

    We definitely needed way more AJ w/Prince/Sheed, and way more AA at SG.

    At this point I really don't think it will matter if AI or Rip come off the bench. Either way, MC is going to force these guys on the floor, and the guys who give us the intangibles that win games (AA, Amir, KB) will lose minutes. It's on Joe D to make a move at this point.

    I am really really starting to like this guy, lol.
    How could i have doubt him, my apologies Roscoe :P

    Right now not only the fans are saying MC needs to quit small ball but even the reporters see and say it.
    Now if only MC could see it:
