    I personally believe our clueless coach is unable to do so because, uh, some, uh...people out there in our nation don't have maps, and, uh, I believe that our education like such as Finland and, uh, the Iraq everywhere like, such as and...I believe that they should, our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S., err, uh, should help Finland and should help the Iraq and the Asian countries, so we will be able to build up our future for our...

    I am sure if Joe ever got him a real PF then he would use him instead of going small. Not like he has had the best talent to work with and that the good players all seem to play the same 2 positions.

    A sheer genious HOF type of coach could have found a way to make it work but hey - Q is not. He is just an average coach.

    Losing the way we have lost in the past 3 games, I am going to have to put this on coaching. It is no way in hell that you lose 3 games in the same manner.

    Coach is clueless #1 and #2, we need to buy, bury or steal a legitimate 4. Villenueva no rebounds in the first half, he ended up with what? 2 rebounds for the game? Jason Maxiel and Ben Wallace two offensively challenged, undersized centers, WTH.

    I totally agree with Ben Gordon as he stated in today's Free Press; Adjustments were not made in the second half.

    As a coach, you have to know how to make adjustments in the game, all three losses, the opponent's coaches made adjustments and we did absolutely NOTHING.

    PLEASE Illitch, hurry up and buy this team. Right now it feels as though no-one is running this team, or making decisions on the direction that we are heading. Before long, we may end up with 10 people in the stands and half of that 10 will probably be family members of the team.

    I am really hating what is going on with this team right now.

    Illitch is probably being smart. He's going to let the value go down while he thinks about it. They're not going to sell it without calling him, so he may as well stall.

    Guys - we bad.

    However - we were in every game this year. We are not stinking the joint up as bad as expected. That's something to be happy about.

    Sometimes the passion of the complaints sounds like we were expected to challenge for our conference title this year.

    One thing that Q's doing ok with

    I was looking at the minutes distribution so far and we have:

    Gordon: 27.3
    Stuckey: 35.3
    Prince: 37.0
    CV: 26.0
    Rip: 28.0
    Bynum: 19.0
    Maxiell: 19.7
    Daye: 21.0
    BBen: 24.7
    Monroe: 7.0
    TMac: 12.3
    Summers: 0.0

    Other than the three red flags, Q's doing a decent job with the minutes. I think that we'd be in much better shape if Q gave more minutes to Monroe at PF and have Daye take some of Prince's minutes at SF. To be honest, I didn't expect Q to play Gordon or Daye as much as he has done.

    Prince's minutes are high because of T-Mac's "dead legs" and Bynum being out.

    I am just thinking outloud but I think that maybe Daye is only getting mins at the moment at the 4 because Q is trying to keep it simple for him and not make him play multiple spots with different needs?

    For Gordon to imply that Kuester did not make the right adjustments down the stretch doesn't seem right to me.

    What else can Gordon do except shoot the ball? It's not like he's going to up his intensity on the other end of the floor to stop a run. How about Charles G or Austin Daye? Jason Maxiel?

    Maybe there just aren't any adjustments to make. We have been told over and over how "versatile" these players are, but I don't really see it. Most of these guys aren't good enough to play one position let alone two or three.

    It seems to me that it takes 2 of these guys to play 1 position.

    If you combine Daye and CG at the 4 spot you get 0 inside play, minimal rebounding, no passing or D of any sort and erratic shooting.

    But at 450 lbs, it would set some better screens.

    very stationary screen, I'd say - rip must be bored to death after the game - to run same play 350 times in a row - man, this is bball, not a chinese factory.
