    Curry was switching up players from a winning combination. Frank has no choice.

    Dumars got us to the top and took us to the bottom. It makes sense that arguments can be made that weighs one of those rides more heavily than the other. Championships stick in peoples' minds, but so do recent losses. Most us us here have watched his moves very closely and have incorporated more than a decade worth of data to form our opinions. I could argue either way, but my gut tells me that he just isn't any better than other well intentioned GMs. In some ways, his success might have been his undoing. Maybe he lucked out more than he realized and then fell in love with his own instincts due to the success that he achieved... or maybe his hands were figuratively tied. Who knows. But whatever he did since about 2007 clearly backfired. We all know that the rebuild was not intentional- it is just the result of "retooling" gone wrong.

    Since John Hammond left........he's been less than satisfactory.

    It could be worse. He could be Michael Jordan.

    I'd rather see a parade of D-league hacks stink up my TV. I have seen the Tay show for far too long. It's boring, ugly, unproductive, and just plain annoying.

    Our head coach "Lawless Frankenstein" this name fits very well with our team, so yeah, Dumars made the right choice, speaking of coaching.
