ALL STAR BREAK
APRIL (Home stretch... 13 games to go)
So here we are. Losers of 9 of our last 10 games. Carmelo hurting, Amar'e lost in the shuffle, TC can't get a pass, we have the worst starting G back court in NBA history, we chuck 30+ threes a game while committing about 20 unforced turnovers each contest, our coach looks apathetic.. gulp (pause for a breath)... Jared Jeffries is still running around, the trade rumors swirl, there are whispers of coaching changes, Isaiah Thomas is out to dinner with upper management, Time Warner still wont broadcast this mess, & Pitchers & Cacthers are soon to report!
We play tomorrow, get a day off, & then comes the daunting 1-2-3 (back-to-back-to-back) three games in three nights. Yikes! And what makes this even tougher, we play the worst of the 3 teams (Nets) on the 3rd night of this gauntlet. Could we go 0-3?
Are we at rock bottom? Or, are we just waiting for the foreman to bring down the jackhammer? WHISTLE BLOWS & I HEAR A SCREAM, WILMA!
We have 15 games before the All Star break. I'm thinking 10-5 would be a miracle. 8-7 might even be a long shot. At 7-12, could we be looking at the turning point or our we facing the abyss?
We shall see how we respond... but with this offense, this coach, these 2 "super" stars, our lack of even a viable college DIV-1 PG, no shooters, lazy defense, and Mr. Dolan... Is there any hope?
I'm looking at March... If we add Baron Davis, along with JR Smith &/or Kenyon Martin... Does this mean anything?
I think if we can hold the line... keep within striking distance of the playoffs (how sad is it we're praying for the 8th seed; so much for wanting a top-4 seeding). Anyway, I think we match up well against MIA.
Martin, Shumpert, Jeffries, Harrellson, Walker, Douglas
Does this do anything for you? Pump your nag?
