    Never, maybe chuck at young guy in here and there when you have no other choice like when someone is in foul trouble but moves like this are made because guys have shown that they deserve a go and are stepping up at training not because the coach thinks "this will f*ck em I'm going to throw in a player who hasn't played since the pre season".

    So back in Tay's rookie year, Carlisle should never have left Tay in except the the little time needed due to Curry's foul trouble. After all, Tay had hardly played during the season, and had been iced for about 20 straight games at that point. But Tay dramatically changed that series. Guess you think we should have just went in 5?

    Maybe I could go to Bryant Park and find a blow-up dummy.

    So using Tay as an example simply proves his point. Cola had no choice, but to use Tay. Had #12 not gotten torched by McGrady and been in foul trouble, Tay would have never seen the light of day because Cola kept #12 in the lineup no matter what. Never-mind the fact that it was a given that Tay was more talented that #12 at the time...which has not been the case with the end of our bench as it stands.

    Yes, under drastic circumstance you would make a change, but throwing some towel warmer in there during the postseason thinking your going to give the opposing coach epileptic fits as if he's just been tazered is pure lunacy.

    The foul trouble only occurred for part of one game. The fact that Tay was better was clear to see whenever Tay was allowed to play during the season. Carlisle basically used that bit of foul trouble to make the switch - and I guarantee you - it was not to try to win the series. After the fans saw what Tay could do, it would have been coaching suicide not to leave Tay in. Carlisle probably went home and puked all night after he was forced to make the switch.

    Nice, but I prefer Milwaukee hammer drills.

    Oh no you have not. Carlisle had much worse said about him during that season, trust me.

    So, what you're telling me is that Cola only made the switch because he inadvertently let the cat out of the bag by putting Tay on the floor and the fans would have mutinied had he reverted?

    That's why Tayshaun Prince became our future starting forward? That's the reason?

    Is that your final answer?

    You must understand. It's all in the purity. Look's like a Makita 1/2".
    Just so much over-kill to me...a 3/8" would-have done nicely.

    ...with enough rope.

    Thats correct. And remember, Carlisle was shown the door anyway at the end of this season. If not for that bit of foul trouble, yes, Carlisle still would have been shown the door. What would Larry Brown have done to Tay the following year to a player who had no previous experience. No credentials. Just maybe, Tay would have never made it with this team. Knowing what I know about Larry Brown, I'd say its a strong possibility.

    3/8" hammer drills are pointless cuz most of them are cordless/gutless for percussion jobs. I applaud the guy for spending the few extra bucks for a corded 1/2" cuz it's guaranteed to get the job done, even if it is a Makita.

    Naw...that wasn't a hammer drill and besides I would respect him more with a typical drill.

    You see, at this stage of the game, the point is too prolong the agony for the viewer. A hammer drill has so much a pop-gun effect that it might look some some artificial CG effect. A typical drill has the full, slow visual...a methodological reaction from the object. Now you have the ultimate reality show...drilling your brains out for you-tube.

    I know it's more venerable to be hopeful, but just give it up guys.

    The illusion that is amir Johnson won't make a freaking difference. Cleveland is too damn good.
