From another thread, late Saturday:
Rick should resign, or if not TPTB should remove him before tomorrow's game.
It's 100% obvious that Rick has lost the team. It doesn't matter if its Rick's fault or the player's fault or even who is at fault.
In the NBA, you replace the coach unless you're talking about Riley or maybe Phil Jackson.
What should really happen is Larry Bird should take over for the rest of the season and the playoffs, so he can observe players, chemistry, the lockerroom, etc. on a firsthand basis (not via whatever story Rick is telling him) in order to figure out what he needs to do this summer.
This must stop; and it must be stopped this season. Even when the 2002-03 team was falling apart under Isiah, the off-court tradgedies, and Artest's flagrant foul binge, the team always put forth effort.
I blame everyone, but the trading deadline has long since passed us by and there's no point in cutting the players.
Okay - fire away.
