    No, it's not too early say "anything" right now. In case you haven't been following the news in the NBA world, the Lakers said "something" about their coaching situation after 5 games.
    Which was a knee-jerk reaction. And it's the Lakers. They're a sideshow more often than nought.

    All we can do at this point is judge the team based on our preconceived notions and what we have seen from our team this season. That's it, and that's all we are doing. Are we pissed off about it? Damn right we are. We expected more from this team, we haven't seen it, and we haven't seen it getting any better--in fact, I'd argue that last night was the single worst performance of the season thus far, included the Charlotte debacle.
    Pissing and moaning about it is one thing; to make outlandish "fire vogel", "this team was never good, we've been lucky", "trade hibbert", "trade PG", "bring back DC" claims isn't suggesting anything rational or logical.

    We have reasons to be pessimistic--what reasons do you have for being optimisitc? What have you seen from this team this year to make you think they will turn it around?
    Be pessimistic; don't act like the sky is falling. Most people have absolutely given up hope on the playoffs --- already.

    Edit: And don't act like you are the only one that has been around here and seen this board acting like this before--it's patronizing. We have all seen it. Sometimes justified, often times not.
    If we've all seen this before --- then why are we engaging in it again? Especially, as you just admitted, it's often not justified, and "sometimes" would be a generous adjective. THis is probly why I'm going at it like I am, because I know most of you should know better than this.
    There are two types of quarterbacks in the league: Those whom over time, the league figures out ... and those who figure out the league.
