    That starting line out would be a quick ticket to the lottery (Assuming Ronaldo is Flip Murray, not some fantastic Brazilian pg we've never heard of).

    If any of the starters go they better get equal value. I am open to CB, Tay and Sheed. Sheed has by and large played well this playoffs but his attitude is too combustible.

    At this point I don't feel married to anyone on the roster. Joe can move whomever he likes as far as I'm concerned.

    That Rachel Nichols ESPN reporter drools over LeBron. She must be sleeping with him? If it weren't for her monotone reporting that probably carries over into the bedroom, I would be marginally jealous.

    Imagine how he must feel after this team just got punked by a team that we should have beaten.

    What is this baby crying? Why do we need to blow up the whole thing? We have four legit starters. Their minutes need to be cut down, especially Tay. He wore out as playoffs went on, especially since he was always guarding the opposing team's #1 scoring option. We need to develop bench that can contribute (see boobie in this 6th game). We need to develop AJ. Sheed has a couple of more solid years left, CB is a solid point guard. Just because of one bad series doesn't mean he shouldn't be resigned for the right money. Rip is one of the better shooting guards in the league. We need to ad a slasher who can finish at the rim. Note to Flip Sr.: we need an established rotation for the bench players, so that they know what to expect in a game. And it should be consistent.

    IMO, Tay and Rip are the only guys that will definitely be back. There's no way Joe moves either of them.

    Webber will be gone. Hunter and Davis will retire. Dice too? CB could very well bolt. Sheed may be traded as part of a shake-up.

    Dice just might retire while wiping the tears. He didn't believe in this team in the beginning of the year and he may take a long time to decide if he comes back. He's still a very very solid option off the bench. Sheed is going to be an almost impossible trade to make. I am not sure there's a team out there that will want to take on him and his contract (maybe if LB is coaching somewhere). CB lost his max deal on this series. However, does one series define the guy? He was very solid in the 1st and 2nd rounds. And for the right money he should be back.

    That's a sad looking rotation RBRJC.
    Let's put our minds together for this one...
    CB
    Kobe
    Fino
    Amir
    Sheed
    or
    CB
    Rip
    Fino
    Brand
    Amir
    Bench
    Acright
    Flip
    Dyess
