Now that we have heard Bird's thoughts about the season and what is to come, what does everyone think he is going to do? From now on Go fishing will be Go Fishing/Golfing

I chose "trade one or two players" but I don't necessarily think that's a major tweak.

I want Larry to be coach. After I heard Reggie say that his philosophy was 'Put the Dagger in 'em', I've wanted him back.

Ridicule if you like, but it's alot better than Carlisle's which is 'Build a lead, slowly lose it, and take out the hot hand.'

Any trade is major in my opinion, but one or two is a tweak.

We might as well be optimistic and believe Bird will do what he needs to do, despite what he said in the press conference.

He's going to trade two or three players, and he's going to switch coaches. Yay!

I am curious, how he's going to change the team's or coach attitude? By saying - "You have to change Your attitude or you're out"? I doubt that will work.

"You'd better change your attitude or I'll come over to your house every night and give a speech."

That'd do it for me.

He is going to keep using the word FUStrated until the players relent.

Change "go fishing" to "go golfing" and I'd vote for that one.

I say two trades. One of which will hopefully involve us moving up in the draft to get Brandon Roy and the other hopefully opening it up for Granger and maybe even Roy to start.

I chose Major Tweak ( trade 1 or 2 players ), Minor Tweak ( sign a FA ) and Trade up in draft.

Its not hard to figure out who the 2 players are that he will try to trade ( his major tweak )......I think that we will sign a lower-end 2nd tier backup player ( his minor tweak ) and I can see Bird trade up ( probably include Freddie ) to move up a couple of spots to draft the player that he has his eye on.

I think that is a good analysis. And I could definitly see our offseason shaping up like that.
