Well the potential of being the most epic disaster for a "superteam" that was so over hyped and over rated going into the season is upon us. If we don't make the playoffs, there will not be any team that is this over hyped failing so bad in any sports I believe.   Like majority of sports fans and messageboards, the blame game occured.  I really don't know who to blame because I tend to blame everybody. I believe everybody was part of this disaster.  But I know some will put blame the most on one person. Who will that be for you?  Who will be the scapegoat?  Have fun.   If the choice is not on the list, you can just post what should be on the list.

Jim Buss, Mike Brown's fail experiment, Mike D'Antoni's ineptitude, Pau Gasol's softness and Dwight Howard being hurt and overrated. 



Arguably the greatest franchise ever

Did he go against the creed? Against the philosophy of the assassin's order? Or maybe he has the apple with those pieces of eden?

I already know the three people who will vote Obama in this thread  :laughing:

 

Fans aren't to blame because all we do is cheer or criticize. 

 

I think it goes front office, coaches and players in that order. 

 

But you know hindsight is 50/50.  If we were a top three seed, we wouldn't be blaming the front office. Coaches would still be getting criticized as would the players.

Yea I put Obama and Fans on the bottom just for [expletive] and giggles but sadly I think some people truely believe the blame should be on Obama.  Like that guy with the assassin's creed avatar.  I really dont understand his post. I am not surprised if he thinks Obama is the leader of the Templars and must be taken down.

Fans are only to blame for over reaction firing of Brown & hiring of Coach D

Mitch Kupchak built this team.  If it is a failed experiment after 80 some games, then he owns it.  Chemistry didn't work.  3 coaches didn't work.  Sometimes the greatest players playing on one team, simply don't work. 

 

Hard to point blame to any one or a group of players here or for that matter the coach--it really isn't their fault that management picjked the pieces which didn't fit.

Jim Buss, if he had hired a coach who knows what he's doing we probably won't be playing this game right now.

People hear only what they want to hear and see what they want to see.

To them, when Dwight and Nash were here it was ALL Mitch

When D'antoni was hired it was ALL Jerry

If this season fails it's ALL Jerry, no matter that all 3 work together.

They'll split credit and blame despite the fact all 3 have to do with everything.

You'll pretty much hear "I'm sure it was all Mitch that got us Nash and Howard, and CP3 the year before.. But it's probably all Jerry that hired Mike Brown and Mike D'antoni!".

Its silly. But people want to credit those they like and blame those they hate. Human nature.

What's the point of this thread? There is a giant thread dedicated to whining and there was one in the middle of the season.
