I'll just watch bits and pieces of games throughout the tournament, and probably watch the final four completely.

Whats the deal with Hibbert ??? Is something up with him or is it just match up problems ?

Not that I'm a fan of it, but I'm sure it's matchups. Bosh and Bargnani will play the big spots, and they're both horrendous matchups for Roy. Granted, there are two sides of the floor, but Roy has his struggles against much slower guys than those two at the 5, and I can see why Jim would hesitate in throwing him out there.

However, this cannot be the practice starting next year IMO. You have to let him sink/swim eventually.

Ugh... Obrien benches Hibbert cause he thinks he can't gaurd Bargnani... It sure is a good thing Foster locked him down to the tune of 25 points... :censored: Oh yeah, at least he contributed a whopping 4 points.

Seriously, We can't just let Hibbert tough it out? At least he can abuse Bargnani on the other end. Just when I was starting to think Obrien was starting to play smart he blows it again, Wont be long before we are back to small ball.

We need to just sit Granger for a while longer.. his stats look horrible. I say don't bring him back until he is 100% healthy.

If we lose this game, like it seems we will, I hope the Raptors pass us ultimately on the standings to help us out of this limbo where we seem to be headed... again!

It's unbelievable how this team makes sub .500 teams look like the Bulls of the '90s. I'm sick and tired of losing to inferior teams. Everyone in front of us loses and we don't take advantage of it. This doesn't look like a team that wants to make the playoffs at all. O'Brien doesn't have his players ready to play and he must be the worst motivator considering we can't beat any teams that are under .500.

Spirit
03-15-2009, 01:34 PM
Tank please. I think we need to just lose most of the rest of our games.. unlike you guys I think there are good players to be gotten in this lottery.. regardless of position. I'd like to get Gerald Henderson and let him fight with Rush for minutes at the swing man spots next year.

And PS: Jordan Hill will be a terrible bust.. please don't take him.

I'm wondering why we didn't put Graham in instead of Baston, and why it took so long to get Hibbert in there. And now looking at the score, where the heck is McRoberts?
-
This is probably the worst defense I've seen all season.

Edit: Forgot to mention that it was a brilliant move to trade Ford, Jose was way better today, but the trade to get rid of JO was even better. Granted they had lost 7 in a row, which makes this loss even more painful.
