    It's been a long time coming., but here it is.

    Making players motivate the team, instead of doing it himself.

    Not playing the bench in blow outs.

    Coaching scared.

    "Opening up the offense".

    Useless sound bytes that don't really mean a thing.

    Why do you think any high-school coach could do as well as Flip has this year?

    :nod: --- to all of your comments.

    I've had those gripes with Flip all season long.

    All that being said, he still hasn't destroyed the team.

    Not everyone can drive the finest engineered, well-tuned aircraft without crashing.

    He deserves credit for that until his playoff record with our team says otherwise.

    Championship or bust!

    This thread IS a joke, you're right.

    But it's sort of like when you tell some one "nice shirt" then laugh about it. They never really know what you thought about their shirt.

    Flip defense isn't much better than last year... what's up with that?

    He also doesn't give Ben enough touches... and he even tried resting him more before the playoffs... what a dumbass

    Not to mention he doesn't yell at his players enough.... everyone knows we need more yelling to be successful.

    Also, Flip eats KFC before every game. I'm a Wendy's man myself. KFC is too greasy.

    He has bumbled his way to 62 wins and counting.

    He tugs his tie. He tugs his collar. He wrenches his neck as if an invisible chiropractor were standing behind him, yanking his jaw like a bus driver spinning a steering wheel.
    He hollers his beloved offensive sets to the point guard, who, because on this night it's Chauncey Billups and not Sam Cassell, actually listens.
    He complains in that hoarse voice to the refs and then grabs his collar and starts anew.
    If you didn't know better, you'd think Flip was twisting at the end of a sadistic puppeteer's wires, ensconced in coaching limbo, but that's not quite the case, not when he's guiding basketball's best team in front of the guy who fired him.

    I saw him stomp his foot quite a few times during the Orlando game.

    Interesting. That quote just described the King of Disrespect, Rodney Dangerfield.

    I'm holding my judgement until the end of the season.

    As someone here said earlier, championship or bust!

    That's what he has to do to fill LB's shoes.

    I think the players get it for him via broom action.

    Damn Dobber, those manerisms are pretty close.

    No respect...I tell ya...

    A girl phoned me up the other day and said "come on over, there's nobody home". I went over there was nobody home.

    One day as I came home early from work, I saw a guy jogging naked. I said to the guy, "Hey buddy...what are you doing that for?" He said, "Because you came home early."

    I haven't spoken to my wife in years. I didn't want to interrupt her.

    "I take my wife out very often- unfortunately, she always finds home."

    A man came to the doctor who told him he had only 6 months to live- he couldn't afford the bill. So the doctor gave him another 6 months.
