Are u folks listening to Woody press conference? YIKES! He doesn't try to even come up the idea that they needed to double jack or whatever to get the ball out of his hands and make others try to beat us........ even after the game!  Please get this dude off the sidelines!

A desperation game and that's how we play the second half?  Atlanta is handing us the 8th seed.  And we choked like Felton does on a hotdog during halftime of every game.

I love Melo, but can he please learn how to dish when he is close to the basket.  He had Amare on the right as he committed the charge against Verajao.   A major flaw in his game.

Cole Aldrich is going to punch Woody in the face in the locker room tonight.  Woody will have a cracked tooth like Aldrich on the roadtrip and blame it on Phil Jackson.

We know Woody is very bad but no way we should lose this game with our superstar on the court.  Melo takes much of the blame with the coach on this one imo.  


1. You have to get the ball out of Jacks hands by doubling him (Coach)

2. Melo has to see that his perimeter shot is off and do something else to get him going.  He's the best player on the court period but he didn't show it in the 2nd half.

3. No Shump for defense and that it folks!

I posted this earlier and it's so good needs to be repeated, tonight's season ender summed up this season all in one game. Woody sucked, Felton gets torched, bad loss at home, too much switching. Melo fades in the 4th. 80% Cavs shooting. No ball movement when game got tight. Tonight in a nutshell is why this team is now officially eliminated from the playoffs and it came in such a knicksy way

@nixredux The thing Kidd does is try to make sure his team understands who has the mismatch and who has the hot hand.  He directs his team to keep going back to that until the opposing team stops it.

@xmenreturn  We probably would have caught Atl but tonight was just a terrible terrible loss. We are screwed

Woody's favoritism will prevent us from making the playoffs.

Woody should of gave Murry 4-5 minutes to see if he can slow Jack down. Woody's favoritism is exposed.

@xmenreturn  Blame goes all around tonight.

Awful loss at an ever worse time.


For those who thought there was still hope, I urge to you to see the light.

@Jerry Gee Not this season, but he has no shot of coming back next year.

@mel brown @charlieoak  from the web site - urban dictionary  - As Tupac defined it, a thug is someone who is going through struggles, has gone through struggles, and continues to live day by day with nothing for them. That person is a thug. and the life they are living is the thug life.  The THUGs on this team have no vision and continue to rely on the other THUGs on this team.

Who ever is open; should not be done in ISO. Jackson will change that.

@Jaime @xmenreturnTrue but your superstar has got to be smart. The Triangle demands this and that will be a problem int hat offense.  This was the Cavs man you don't need anything fancy here.

@charlieoak  As I stated, way out of context and in no way applies to the basketball game that took place tonight.  Oh yeah.....Tupacs' definition was self-defined.   I guess Thug is the new term for N*gger according to you.   Are you a thug? lol
