    I thought that was a pretty classy move- offering the refunds.

    Couldn't possibly be worse than who is running it right now.
    But this is an entirely different matter.

    I dont mean to get all political but when THE FIRST AND MOST FREQUENT area a politician takes away from is education... it really pisses me off..Shows us where their priorities are.

    Let's try to avoid politics. The discussions always end up intensly partisan or totally lopsided. :)

    Even if Flip leaves this problem won't be fixed. Dumars quote from DetNews:

    "You can't beg guys to play with hunger," he said. "After a while, if it doesn't happen, then I have to find guys who automatically have that. That's going to be the test for me. Either you are going to play with a sense of urgency or you are not. And if you can't, it's time to fill that spot with somebody new who maybe hasn't had all the success we've had."

    "We have to keep bringing in people who will challenge our core players," Dumars said. "We're at a stage where there has to be more of a challenge for the guys that remain here. These guys can't have such a comfort level where he can go out and play with a lack of urgency. We have to keep changing, keep challenging these guys with fresh talent or complacency will continue to fester."

    I think from what we all heard today from those two interview mp3 files that Joe D figured out what the problem was and is addressing them. I don't believe that he wants to change the cast at all if he can help it. He just wants to rotate better, be more into each game and bring it. Good to hear that Joe was mad as heck when LeBron just walked down that lane in game 5 and dunk.
