    AI out, Curry back in his comfort zone taking a page from the Flip book and overplaying the starters. Still, it's only 20 games or so and who knows what might happen.

    I notice that I'm having real problems getting a handle on Stuckey's game. He seems out of control to me, but comes up with some pretty good games, like last night. I could have sworn he had more than three turnovers.

    At least the games are back to fun to watch.

    Its going to be a big test for AI . If he handles it well and Curry manages it right ( hopefully ) then it can actually boost his career - be a real team player. Take a que from Rip and get it done.

    Even Kevin McHale came off the bench at one time. Lot of great players have at one time or another. I have to believe that AI off the bench will be a better option than Will Bynum - just saying. But it has to be done right.

    I heard something on ESPN that the Nuggets have not won at the Palace since 1995. At least we are keeping that streak alive.

    I really dont think we EVER had SWAGGER. I believe the right word is CONCIET.

    The Celts, Lakers, Pistons and Bulls had SWAGGER.

    I believe we had 3 guys that hid behind Ben Wallace and when he left, they tried to yell at you from behind a closed door(see the Kid and Play scene in House Party or the taunting scene in THE HOLY GRAIL).


    But what we have seen the last 3 games is if we just shut up and play hard, we will win games.

    In the Army, chemistry builds confidence. And its hard to trust the 'new guy' in any form as quickly as we were made to trust Iverson.

    He will NEVER go along with this bench thing.

    As the old knight SIR TOM said to the 3Stooges..."HEED MY WARNING!!"

    Id like to stay 6th.

    We have Orlando's number and if the Celts finish 2nd, I like our chances BETTER since they got Marbury. :nod::eyebrows:

    I agree. Everytime I hear an announcer talking about the swagger this team had during that long glorious run, I wonder where I was. I just don't remember seeing it. At least the way I saw it with the teams HQ lists. This team always seemed to have more of CB's mayor personality than the hard-hearted-I'll-crush-you-in-the-dirt of those other teams.

    No doubt, CB and the others would stick the knife in and twist, but would smile at you afterwards and take you to dinner. They always seemed more politician than buccaneer to me too.

    not sure if you should say 5th.... heck at this point 6th might be the sweet spot for us, since the magic can't seem to find a way to beat us, we match up better against them then we do atlanta.

    Nah, that's just playing hard. Swagger is what happens next - wiping the blood from your knife on their shirt as you go back up court - now that's some swaggering.

    The whole overplaying the starters implies that we expect to go deep into the playoffs. This team needs to do what it can to win now...unless we want to tank and get a better seat in the lottery.

    Or that you expect the team to be substantially reconfigured next year and there is more long term value is getting other players experience than in winning a few extra games in what is a meaningless season. But I don't disagree, it's only 20 games, may as well try to make a run and see if you get lucky.

    What about some type of strategy where we send our scrubs in to agitate our opponents stars in the playoffs? The ultimate goal would be dual suspensions, like Herrmann out 5 games for punching KG. KG out 10 games for pulling Herrmann's hair in response. That way we don't have to rely on lucky injuries.

    I don't think you come off the lucky injury strategy until it's proven not to work. Why trash a good thing?

    I think the league might be on to us. And they have mob connections through Donaghy. If we keep this up, there might be some Jeff Gillooly action coming our way.
