I finally took the time to look at the Nets & Bulls roster for the 2013-14 season .. they are the tougher team to beat in the regular season having outstanding talent under a strategic (keep the ball moving) Headcoach.
Defense will be there #1 allied.
No matter how I match it up Felton/Shump/JRsmith vs Deron/JJ/Terry, or Tyson/K-Mart/Melo vs Noah/Boozer/Deng in a postseason series .. we seem to come out as the underdog in a series.
HC Woody will have to do some heavy overtime coaching to get 8 players GELLIN this upcomming season.
Detroit & Cavs upgraded over the offseason, no tellin about some of the other Eastern conference teams.
Yeah their entire defensive system was to be as dirty as possible and get away with it based on their name recognition and star status, intimidating the refs and being braggarts and basically just ****ty people. Go watch some of the 09-10 season and check out how they play defense. it's not effort, it's thuggery. there's a major difference between being a tough guy with honor and being a thug that gets away with murder.
I put it like this vs the other 14 teams in the East when we play anyone but the Heat we have the best player on the floor and that right there is the key to it all
The Nets dont have that, the Bulls do but he's gonna need some time, the Pacers have a nice 1-2 punch
No one should write us off, the fact that our fans are is just stupid
After our Postseason performance which showed a very low headcoach to veteran player confidence in both series ..
it takes a while to build up confidence in a HC that showed no strategic ability with a Knicks team roster that had a huge edge (70-30) over Boston, and a decent edge (60-40) over Indiana in a postseason series.
Having the winning players is one thing .... having a HC that run the same-play throughout a game, game after game for the entire season, expecting his players to be creative or drop a 3-ball shot, takes away a fans optimism for the next season.
It was alright when he was an interim HC (u get a pass), when he did it for a full season ....
I am not happy about Woody's extension contract...
Paul "Inglewood" Pierce vs Metta "Queensbridge" World Peace. East coast all day Pauly!
Paul Pierce and Lebron went at it for 26 minutes in a preseason game .. I thought the two were going to throw punches at each other.
