It's pretty clear to me that this thing has run its' course. This team has gotten as far as it's going to go with the personnel on the roster. We don't want to have another episode like the 80's where we're in the playoffs every year with no shot to win anything. Blow it up.
We've all discussed how fragile and selfish Roy has been this year and I think we've had just about enough. He does all this whining about how he needs to find a 'comfort zone' to maximize what he gives the team. It's just like what happened last year. What happened then? We won only 54 games before getting effectively swept in our first playoff series in anyone's time with the team.
Not good enough. He's clearly peaked and so have the Blazers.
Don't get me started on the other players on this team. There are players in this league that have better averages than every other player on this team. I think we bring them all over and this team explodes. Charlie Villenueva is averaging more points than LaMarcus is; get him in here. Al Jefferson is averaging more than Oden; get him in here. Kobe is averaging more than Rudy; excuses are what makes for losers. These are the kind of players that will lead us into the future.
The future. FEW...CHUR!
The only guys on this team that are living up to their pay grade are Dante and Bayless. It is clear that if Nate weren't such an inferior coach then these guys would be leading us to the promised land, much like Sergio last year and Jack the year before. We saw what happened to those guys, run out of town by a former point guard jealous of their mad games. Instead we got run off to Europe by an awful Houston team with a slow center and a missing 2 guard. Put these fine fellows in the starting lineup and you are guaranteed an 9 game winning streak.
The team is too old, too set in their ways to change now. Almost all of them can drink legally now; their livers are certainly on a downward spiral. You can tell they are on the downside of their careers because they all keep getting hurt. The Spurs have more longevity than us right now. I think I actually saw Nic chasing a Geritol with an Ensure. Followed by a shot of absinthe. These guys just don't care anymore!!!
It's time. Time to waive the coaching staff, starting five, first three bench players and the usher's dog. Insert B-Rex and Inferno into the starting lineup. Go get juggernauts like Charlie V and Al Jefferson and stop making excuses for not being able to pick up Kobe. While you're at it go open a new checking account. I hear you can get a free bobblehead of a washed up player if you do.
