    Nothing like a good old fashioned 10-0 hole to start the game. Might as well improve that pick.

    That 5-0 run took over 6 minutes. I’m not seeing a high scoring game happening here.

    Greg starting where he left off.  I’m sure tomorrow I’ll read how his 0-6 start is Frank’s fault.

      They both need to go. Monroe is soft and Frank is a proven loser. 1 winning season in his 9 yr career, doesn’t give me much reason to believe he’s going to lead us to a winning record anytime soon.

        If 16 and 10 and only getting better is soft, give me soft all day, every day.

          Yah its hard to coach when half your games your best player is Will Bynum or a 19 year old rookie. This roster is constructed for Frank to fail.

          If you thought Monroe had a good game tonight…. give me some of whatever you’re on…lol

          Monroe was awful. I don’t care what his numbers say. He played bad and played soft mentally and physically. He played stupid too. I cant count how many times he got it in the post, waited for the double to come, and then took that as the cue to force up a contested layup against a double team on the best interior defense in the league.

          Normally when a big man draws a double, its his cue to pass it back out to the perimeter to the open man. Monroe did the opposite all night long. To make it worse, when he had it at the high post and no one was guarding him, meaning a extra defender was playing the passing lane, THEN he decides to try and pass it right into their lane. Dumb basketball all night. Soft defense, no mental toughness. Just moping around the court all night.

          Sorry, but I say this too often about him when we go against these “real” playoff teams that play physical defense, like MEM, CHI, IND, etc. He comes up soft almost everytime. And I just don’t see us ever going deep in the playoffs with him playing big minutes. He’s just not a playoff-style big man to me.

            Of course he didn’t. But he has good games a whole heck of a lot more often than not. And more often than anyone else on this team. Do you want to trade away everyone who has a bad game now and then?

    Tank it the rest of the year, must be the plan. Hopefully we make some huge changes this summer like Monroe for Love! Trade for Eric Gordon do something this team is garbage, could use a pg as well.

      Yah, all we need is a overrated, injury prone, over paid SG.

    Its officially time to move on from the Frank Era, because the players appear to already have…

        Good thing we have lots of capspace and a franchise Center to build around. 

        I already don’t expect Max/Bynum back because their contracts are up, but if we bring back Frank and Stuckey, and CV again, its going to be real hard to watch another season of this.

        I cant stand to watch another season of Stuckey on this team, and Frank is clearly not getting his message through. I don’t care what additions we make, if Frank and Stuckey are back I don’t see next year being much different from the last 2. Franks system doesn’t work and Stuckey is just not a good player.
