    Dumars has lost his damn mind.

    This will help with our predictions for next season. I don't think we'll have a problem with pessimistic outlooks being forseen. Maybe he'll earn that B+ grade that some gave him earlier.:)

    Vets were injured by him. You can't not blame Curry for small ball, resulting in Rip contending nightly with small forwards who were too big for him to handle - resulting in his season ruining groin injury.

    You can't not blame Curry for Sheed's injury, which occurred from him sprinting down the floor on transition D. (Which only was needed because we had neither JMAX nor Amir in the game, who should have been doing that sprinting.)

    As for getting nothing from Sheed this season - please note, that Sheed had about double the odds of walking off the floor each time after just being part of us scoring more than the opponent, as compared to Dyess.

    People liked all of Dyess' hustle, but Sheed's defense was so much better, that he was our most successful player this season in terms of us playing winning basketball. (With Dyess being last on the list in this regard.)

    My message: Hustle without capability is not worth much. You don't keep

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry at this.

    I'm getting there as well.

    I would assume since she's in the process of "learning" the business she's going to defer to Joe on most decisions for awhile.

    Well considering he's been healthy more than 70% of his entire career (missing more than half the season only twice in his 7 years)...I'd say it really doesn't matter.

    Viva La Boozer!!!

    I'll be canceling my League Pass for sure if Curry is coming back. My wife will be happy at least that I'm not wasting my time watching 82 games of this Curry crap.

    Knowing the commitment level that has captured JD...probably.

    It will come at a price. Make no mistake about this.

    Ownership will get itchy.

    Wilson will be concerned about so many compartments taking on water.

    You can give all those tickets away...but, you never get loyalty without a sense of ownership.

    PR and the shrills fool no one. They speak toward an inattentive concentration of momentary eye moments across the page.

    We need no convincing.

    No but you'll be able to see the new coach 3 months in when Detroit are last in the East and JD decides maybe it was a bad idea.

    I have nothing to say.

    Safe to say that i'll never get around on this move. Even my younger sister was laughing at his interviews against the Cavs.

    I for one, won't waste too much time/money on Dumars and his cronies in the near future.

    For Dumars to admit that Curry is clueless is to admit that he himself is clueless. Given the team's recent history with coaches there must have been a lot of pressure to keep Curry. Next year is the re-sign or resign year so the leash might be shorter. The clue will be whether there is a new assistant with coaching experience next year. Or Dumars feels that Walker could step in.

    One interesting thing Curry said in an interview around one of the playoff games - that he was surprised the team was unable to adjust to the change in the style of play that AI represented - basically that it was their inability / unwillingness to change their games that doomed the season. He said that based on his experience in the league, he got used to change really quickly (which you might imagine given how often he moved around) and just assumed that these players would feel the same way.

    LOL.....The players know that Curry is not a good coach. Joe is an idiot. This means that the team will not contend next year.
