    yeah, yeah, yeah...Curry's one year of NBA assistant coaching experience (after a lackluster career) made him a better choice than Bad Bill with his stellar NBA career, 2 playing titles and 3 WNBA coaching titles...and having his name/number enshrined on the Palace floor. If I hear the 'no NBA coaching experience' excuse one more time I'm gonna puke.

    Let's face facts. BillD LIKES BillL cuz he WINS. IMO Jodie's got a hard-on for Laimbeer cuz he's afraid of losing his job...sort of ironic cuz Laimbeer might be the only guy that could save it right now.

    I guess we'll never know what might have been cuz Jodie won't hire him and BillD's too senile to force the issue.

    Don't know how you got from Rip showing why he deserves to start to there, but OK.

    There is no good reason to buy AI out unless he is willing to give money back so he can play somewhere else.

    Do you think every post I make is a response to yours?? I wasn't even looking at your post, so I dont even know what your talking about...If i was responding to your post I would've quoted it like I did in this post...

    Ne ways I was made that post because Rip played well and Pistons won, so I figure there will be some posts coming about how Det doesn't need AI bla bla bla...

    Considering you posted it 2 minutes after what i posted, and said this

    which sounds like a response to someone's post, i assumed it was mine, but i didn't realize you were talking to yourself so my mistake.

    Ok i got it. so any post made is automatically a response to the previous post if its within a certain amount of time...and if its not..that means the person is "talking to themselves" hahah yea ok...

    Maybe the timing of my post has to do with the fact the game had just ended?? There's a thought huh?...

    Who would not want to have AI coming off the bench? I bet every team in contention would make a play for him and would find a way to make it work.

    I see it as a slam on the coaching with the AI question and not on AI himself.

    Classic Napoleon complex. He did not think much of Harris's point guard abilities. Also, I can't stand his voice.

    MC: "Sorry bro, but you been relegated
    to the bench ..now go see about that
    back for a few games so I can save
    my job..."

    AI: "Bench, you talking about the bench?"

    I think you missed the point. You are WAAAAAAAAAY oversensitive to AI-related comments and you have an incredible ability to mistake them as being blindly supportive of AI at the expense of the rest of the team, both past (Chauncey) and present. It's pretty noticeable.

    Yep, I did kinda notice that. It's a new offensive system. It will take time.
