    Please, for the love of God, stop asking to see Charlie Villanueva play. The guy brings down the morale and integrity of the team. I’ve never seen a player with a lower bball IQ. It’s hilarious to me that people only imagine this guy as a contributor when he’s out with an injury and the fandom is being fed lines from Kander about CV’s work ethic. CV is done.
     
    I really wish we could amnesty CV and Gordon. Their mental games just make me sad.

      Maybe we can trade CV for another teams custodian or popcorn guy. I don’t really see that many gullible teams at the moment though.

    I can’t believe some moron writing for this site actually suggested Daye should play more last night. I hope only Dan Feldman writes game recaps from now on.

    My god I think Austin Daye should see Rodney’s Therapist.  You can just FEEL the lack of confidence when you watch him play.  He needs to get his head straight.

    I wonder what the biggest two game swing in NBA history is between margin of victory and margin of defeat.

      I have to admit, seeing a team go from leading by 50 one night to trailing by 50 the next would be a pretty amazing accomplishment. Is accomplishment the right word?
