Aight guys, we'll go with the "Franks is an idiot" assumption then.
Something about an icefishing shack after a mid January Pistons / Bucks game.
Welcome to the dark side....Ive been screaming that ( and getting warnings from Roscoe ) since the season started and the idiot stayed status quo with the rotation and has proven how horrible he is with his moronic substitutions and lack of common sense in playing the monroe/ drum front that everyone else seems to realize will work.
Re: warnings, that was in reference to the language filter, which I think we understand now was a misunderstanding. I never warn people not to have a particular opinion.
Folks are entitled to hate the coach, I understand that. I just don't understand why they think anyone wants to hear it 50x a game chat, EVERY GAME CHAT.
You gotta realize that in a group environment, repeating yourself and complaining over and over again gets really hard to read and tedious. Plus, it can't be making you much happier about anything.
Maybe I am too zen these days, but I just don't see the point in being angry about sports. I get angry (less often though) working and stuff. Sports is my escape.
That said, I am not a Lawrence Franks fan. I just think it is way too early to excoriate this guy for the team's failings. When we win, players played well, when we lose, the coach can't rotate players....
I am under no illusions this guy is a championship level coach.
Phil is available. Maybe we could work out a deal with him where he doesn't need to travel to Detroit for home games or on the road to any game outside of California until the Finals.
Wow, we can afford him a Detroit moon which he can never see in California.
Again, Dumars was a star, for our team. Lets review who the superstars were for a moment, for 1989 - 90:
Karl Malone, 29.1 ppg and 10.7 rpg
Magic Johnson, 12.7 apg.
Olajuwon, 13.5 rpg
Barkley 12.5 rpg
Kevin Johnson, 12.2 apg
Dale Ellis, 27.5 ppg
MJ 32.5 ppg
Clyde 27.2 ppg
Chris Mullen 26.5 ppg
Moses Malone 11.8 rpg
Parrish 12.5 rpg
Stockton, 13.6 apg
And in contrast, we had no 20 point scorer. We had 8 guys all bunched from 7.2 to 18.4 ppg
Outstanding rebounder? We had two, but Rodman and Laims both out there meant neither was in the running for the rebounding crown.
ppg list, for Pistons 89-90 team:
Salley 7.2, Rodman 8.8, Vinnie 9.8, Laim 12.1, Aguirre 14.1, Edwards 14.5, Dumars 17.8, Zeke 18.4
One caveat........since 1990 the NBA has purposefully rewrote the rule book in terms of defense and physicality so that defense has now become an after thought. Offense sells and the NBA worked to alter the game so no other team could win in that fashion ever again. Until we did win it again with defense as well as the Spurs, but STern added more rules, so now even the SPurs play a more uptempo offense focused style of bball.
