    Where did Curry announce the change of the starting lineup? Was it in the post-game press conference? Does someone have a link? I must have missed this.

    Indeed. It is amazing that this guy never learned how to defend. Absolutely amazing.

    I would hope that Curry realizes that simply swapping out our PF/C again is not the answer. The problem is the 4-core players. Specifically, the night-to-night inconsistent energy from our 3 remaining core players.

    Small ball will take an extremely mediocre defensive and rebounding team, and make them worse. Gimmick teams do not work

    Yes, it matters not one bit who starts really. Its the rotations used thruout the game. In this game, we played for a total of 9 minutes with 2 bigs out there. The rest of the time, the biggest we had at "power forward" was Tay or Herrmann.

    Saunders is gone.

    Billups is gone.

    The problem still remains. Are we getting rid of the wrong people or do we have to keep cleaning house?

    there is a huge difference: in flip era everything was set. Now they have no idea what they can/should to do. MC is trying new roles but he has no playmaker for plays. I think, they are dazed and confused...:faint2::faint2:

    good question. i don't think Flip Saunders was any worse of a coach than Doc Rivers. Where Doc Rivers was at an advantage were his players. Better talent, and without the hubris. with that said, Flip Saunders was an above average coach who was stuck in his ways, even when things got tense. Right now, Curry is a bad coach who doesn't seem to be living up to his word yet. Curry seems a bit... slow.

    the source of the problem these past two years were Rasheed and Chauncey. both wanted to be friends with everyone, and in the playoffs, they got to a point where they couldn't channel their intensity into positive energy. One with too lite urgency, especially for being the 'leader, and the other with a screw loose, with as much talent as anybody but almost never comes through when the team is counting on HIM, and that was evident in Portland as well.

    Rip is the guy, while a bit %%%%%y, is our only consistant motor in the playoffs.

    Tayshaun has the right attitude, just isn't enough to challenge Paul Pierce or Lebron James. It's too bad; Prince would excel out West.

    Amir, Max, Bynum, etc. are only role players (and will likely never be anything more) and cannot truly impact the game without strong starter play. The only guys with the intangibles to have an impact whenever are Stuckey with his pure passing skills, and his unteachables (size, strength, speed), and Afflalo with his stifling defense.

    ________________

    While we won't have as much talent, the aura will be a lot more fresh when Rasheed and Iverson step out through the Palace doors in April or May. I say: Operation Clean House is still in progress. :lecturer:

    Sheed seems to be friendly with everyone except for big Z and the refs.

    I agree with you though. It's OK to be respectful, but going buddy buddy with opposing players breaks that going-to-battle type bond with your own teammates.

    That's just it.

    If he maintained the status quo, it is insanity.

    If the changes are not enough (poor results) and he makes more changes, does that necessarily also equal insanity?

    It's a paradox.

    Change, year after year, can also be classified as a constant. so yes, it could devolve into insanity.

    I got this from another forum but it's something that i would like to see:

    Stuck Ai Tay Sheed and Kwame starting. Bynum playing backup point, Rip backup 2 guard, Max/Arron/Walter backing up Tayshaun depending on matchups, Dyess backing up Sheed.

    Starting Kwame/Amir depending on the other team's starting center.

    Well seeing as how technically it's a legal term and not a medical diagnosis I think it's fair game for this venue. :)

    So far, these moves haven't brought the results (consistency) that we're looking for. Joe could wait and see how things go before cleaning house. But that doesn't really always work. Ask William Clay Ford.
