    Hopefully Murphy doesn't have the "runs" anymore and Dunleavy has gotten some rest to recover from whatever "bug" is floating around the Locker Room.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I kind of feel like the season was wasted anyway.

    I hope Flip doesn't play much, because I really don't want to see a bunch of terrible passes and mis-handling of the ball tonight.



    As for the poll question, that is a great question, and I always feel if my team doesn't make the playoffs, yes, the season was a waste. Especially when the goal from the start of this season was to make the playoffs.

    So it was a failure and a waste, if you look at it in that aspect. But, I can't just rain negative on the team. They played with effort and played hard mostly every night. It's just too bad our franchise player can only play 25 or so games a year.

    We had a great season from Mike Dunleavy, who we need to keep, Danny is emerging as the next go-to guy on the team and it is a blast to watch him transpire. Also Murphy played exceptional after the All-Star break, keep it up, Big Murph.

    We know what we get from Foster, but the nice surpirses were Diener and Rush.

    It's just too bad we always have a select few players bringing the whole team down. Whether it's their inability to play NBA basketball for 81 games or their inability to stay out of a police report, it's always something. IMO, we need to cut ties with these players.

    Would have been nice to have made the playoffs. All I hope for now, is to finish the last two games strong, pick a talented player in the draft, and go from there.

    Troy Murphy told me before they game that they all had "the runs" last night. I really hope that well, I don't wish that upon them, but you could tell that they weren't themselves. Danny must just play better sick.

    Just caught it. She confirmed it. Caron Butler and Gilbert Arenas will not play.

    Takes a little bit off our backs, but we cannot take it for granted.

    Ha, this is funny. She makes it sound like Foster being out is a secret.

    Anyone who pays attention to these games knows already...

    She is also advertising ticket prices for Wednesday's game, from which I understand is that the Lower Level and club level are sold out.

    I really think we need to get Flip in there to back up Dun Dun. Diener then Graham. I don't want to see quick turnovers early in this game.

    Heck, I'd rather have us start Rush as a PG. I don't care! Flip needs to come off the bench as a SG.

    im watching it on LP rite now and its the Wizards feed.

    looks like Dunleavy is back healthy just based on how he warms up and this is a good sign.

    Caron and Gilbert won't be playin?

    We might have a chance since the Wizards two best players are out.

    Look closer to the top of this thread.
    Murph told me that the team had "a bad case of the runs."

    Like I said, this game shouldn't be taken for granted under the new circumstances. We should play with the attitude that they are in the game.

    Are we at the point where a win by the Hawks or a loss by the Pacers puts the Hawks into the Playoffs ( or more specifically, all of us out of our misery )?

    I thought that the Hawks Magic # was 1 after our loss the other day.
