Well D'antoni found a losing combination tonight against the Blazers....so he's gonna go with it tomorrow against Sacramento :P

 

 

 
  1. Mike D'Antoni said he won't give up on Gasol-Kaman tandem. Will both likely start tomorrow vs. Kings

 

 

 

 

I don't understand why he would stick with that. We were playing great with Hill and Gasol/Kaman at the 5. Why put two slow, unathletic bigs together that play essentially the same role?

Does it matter? this season is lost, throw logic out, who cares about roles at this point

Some of these players will be back next season, and I'd hope this experimental year would help them utilize their strengths and understand their weaknesses.

 

Despite having the entire season, no player really has had a defined role except Pau at the 5, Meeks at the 2, and Young acting as a offensive sparkplug off the bench. 

 

At least finish off the season with some consistency.

No idea why you're complaining about that.

True, but then again we won't have the same coach (possibly) therefore they won't have the same system that will utillize their strengths or weaknesses

Man boston has a ton of easy games for the rest of the season. 

@Wizards

Vs 76ers

@Pistions

@Hawks

Vs Bobcats

@Cavs

@76ers

@Wizards

 

Only the wizards have a .500+ records and its only by 2 games. Every one of those games is winnable for boston. They need to win 3 more games than we do for the rest of the season for us to get ahead of them.

 

 

Utah on the other hand has a fairly tough schedule. New Orleans, lakers, and Minny, and Denver are pretty much the only possible wins. The other 3 (GS, Mavs,and Blazer) look to be defiant losses for them. We 

 

That would net us a 10.35% at first pick and a 33.45% at a top 3. Barring a miracle I see this as about best case it can get. I just don't see Utah winning more than 2 games for the rest of the season.

Looking at the team Duke will have next year I wouldn't blame him.  It's his best chance for revenge at the college level.

Every time an article says several gm's believe it never happens that way. Example would be pau gasol.

I have a feeling that Jabari stays. We'll see though.
