    I want to jump in, just because this shoe analogy is fantastic.

    If all of your shoes are going to give you bunions on your feet anyway, what does it matter?
    Then you must be gellin'.

    Read: Tanking.
    That makes things difficult if you want every team to tank. Then I guess we'll be a title contender, right?

    Don't you mean almost every player in the league? I take it you missed summer league if that is what you want.
    I'd put more of my attention on the fact that this team has sucked in the regular season, versus anything in the summer league.

    I meant our team. I'm not suggesting every team shut down players with minor injuries, just us. We are a little thin on hope.

    Thank you. My point was that I don't care who they are, I'm spending my money and I'm going to make good use of it. Watching my benjamins sit on the sideline isn't making good use. I don't care how bad they are playing. They'll play one way or the other.
    I absolutely can not think of a worse thing than this.

    So if that were the case then I assume that last season you were really against Jarret Jack starting over T.J. Ford and getting major (I mean MAJOR) min.?

    Because as you know at the time Ford was makeing more than four times what Jack was making?

    Alright, I guess I am going to have to spell out my point to everyone.

    I don't think that there is not a large amount of players that is not playing with some kind of injury, whether major or minor. He wasn't specific on just this team to begin with, but I was exploiting that. I knew what his intentions were, to mean just this team. But yeah...

    We had a shot at the playoffs. Ford still played. He just didn't start. Regardless, I'm not talking about hogging minutes here, I'm talking about playing time in general.

    I don't really understand the point of doing that, but I'm glad you caught on originally. I was getting a little worried

    Honestly, I know this is taboo around here, nobody likes doing it, it compromises the integrity of the game, yada yada yada...but is it to to start, ahem, shutting down guys with minor injuries and letting the young guys get some extended run?
    Call me in January/February. I can't say it now. It's just too soon.

    Ah, but the other shoes were dipped in radiation (non lethal to humans, of course and now possess the ability to evolve. While it's not yet an exact science, there's a reasonable chance the other shoes will end up better than the older shoes ever were. But they only evolve when you wear them.

    Yeah.

    I'm different.

    Okay....to continue this "shoe analogy".....I'd suggest that instead of wearing the treads of these expensive running shoes down running at full speed on a treadmil......maybe we should use them differently.......as in use them for a brisk walk on the sidewalk.

    Maybe these expensive shoes are better used as walking shoes instead of running shoes.

    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.

    This is what happens when you let a guy continue to play on an injury that needs rest.

    Next up, Dunleavy's knee. JOB has already said he's going to give him extra minutes if he feels he needs to .... sooo we'll see how long he holds up. This'll be fun .....

    With Luther Head presumably back in the lineup, I wouldn't see Dun getting too overused.

    Maybe the problem is the shoes are brown loafers and the rest of the NBA is a black tuxedo?

    I'm not sure I agree with you, but I'll certainly say I'm hoping I'm wrong.

    We won't have much choice. I'm sure after seeing what Danny is going through now the training staff will be a little more reserved with Dun.

    The problem is if the shoes are a beautiful shiny material that everybody thinks looks good because they are always in the closet under the right light, but when you take them out and wear them for awhile they turn out to be really shoddily made so you put them away. Then, when your better shoes get a little dirty or pinch your feet, you convince yourself, "hey, those other shoes were actually fantastic..."

    And, of course, you always have the really ugly shoes that don't go with anything and don't wear very well but they are comfortable and you're used to them so you wear them even when your wife makes harsh comments.

    Well, I was advocating sitting him down until the heel was completely well, but I'm sure that's not what you meant
    I was too! I advocated sitting him a week and not one game the last time he sat out.

    Mom says they're definitely better.

    Of course, there were those five days I wore the other shoes, and the hottest girl in school kept saying how she liked them. In fact, we went out a couple times.

    But Mom told me to go back to wearing my original shoes. That girl doesn't notice me anymore, but it's not the shoes.

    Mom told me so.
