Thread: I was just thinking and feeling sad today...

    Default I was just thinking and feeling sad today...

    ...that we let Antonio Davis go. If we hadn't, I am certain that we would have beaten the Lakers in the 2000 finals. Not to mention we would have kicked the crap out of the Pistons and the Lakers this year. No doubt in my mind, and there's nothing anyone can say here that will convince me otherwise, so don't even bother trying to rationalize with me. I'm just a crazy head right now.

    I dunno, for some reason today it just hit me again that Antonio is gone, and what that means for the team I love. And we're stuck with that "never will be," Bender. Worst trade in NBA history.

    Point is, I miss the best NBA center this franchise had. Just take a gander at this line-up and tell me we wouldn't be the next NBA dynasty:

    Tinsley/Johnson
    Jackson/Miller
    Artest/Bender
    O'Neal/Croshere
    A. Davis/Foster

    We're so close, but I often quiver in fear that it's not quite close enough. Bring Antonio back! That one switch would push my confidence over the top. It's so damn close it's not even funny.

    I admit I'm being a big pansy here and wallowing in the past, but it just makes my butt pucker to think of what might have been.

    Ah well...

    Next up: the Dale Davis for Jermaine O'Neal fiasco.

    If I am thinking correctly, if AD would have been kept than Austin Croshere would not have gotten the playing time he did.

    But yeah I wouldn't mind bringing AD back. Croshere/Pollard for AD? Yeah. He can still give 10 and 8 and play hard defense.

    Was it important to do this?

    Do you feel better?

    I'm sorry but I don't think Hicks deserved this.

    I don't know what you do for living, MR, but unless you're a comedy writer, you're in the wrong profession.

    This is both sad & funny at the same time.

    But I think Peck is right, it is kind of a low blow.

    Yeah, I take it neither you or Peck caught this:

    *sigh* I've gotten caught back up in this again after wanting to stop. I'm trying to be reasonable, but I mainly have bullet being Donnie's puppet with his responses, such as saying/doing anything to make him look right, including knocking Brad by either making fun of where he comes from, or saying his game and value to the team was less close to Jermiane O'Neal than it was to Jamison Brewer That's not someone worth wasting more time arguing about this. I enjoy talking w/ him in general, but if there's an issue where Walsh's opinion is known, he's gonna go into full puppet mode and say anything to try to support Donnie's opinion instead of having an opinion of his own (or at least being open to a different idea), and it's predictable enough that I'm going to try hard not to waste my time with debating anymore. It's like talking with a wall.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Trolling is not allowed. It's obvious why you did this, and it's cleary trolling.

    I know what the intent of this post was bullet, but how would we have Bender if we hadn't traded AD for him, smarty pants?
