    The offense has been so predictable, and the rotations have been so nonsensical, that I think we'd have as much chance at winning tonight by simply streetballing like it's a rec league game. First 5 players to make a 3 pointer are in the starting lineup.

    Someone give Casey an ipad with Angry Birds installed to keep him occupied for 2.5 hrs.

    It'd be easier to give him a rock to pound.

    Is Ibaka confirmed for tonight? That's my main interest, will be surprised if it's anything other than another dumpster fire otherwise.

    I'm looking forward to post-ASG with Ibaka + a health PP in the lineup.

    As long as one of Ibaka or 2pat plays I think we should be fine.

    One of the biggest problems yesterday offensively was because of the 4 spot. With the way our offense is played they need someone at the 4 spot that can spread the floor and give lowry and demar more room to operate. Teams don't have to guard Jakob/Bebe/Pascal and they can easily trap the ballhander by throwing a double on them after a pick. That's one of the reasons we went on our biggest run when we had Carroll playing the 4.

    I don't think its a coincidence that we are playing the worst ball in the past 3 years and that our offense went from most efficient in the league to one of the worst the min 2pat got injured. Having 2 capable floor spacers at the 4 is going to be huge for this team going forward and Ibaka being able to play the 5 also hopefully means less Bebe, who has been terrible lately yet Casey still throws him out there for more mins than JV.

    He's overrated defender but he's decent, better than JV I think. Plus with ibaka a d Drummond no will will come in the paint
    His free throws sucks, I'll give you that.

    But if he ever get his shit together I think we can beat Cavs

    I think we have a small chance of creating cavs with Drummond but a chance is a chance

    If they make the roster do they say they have a G-Spot?

    If Ibaka plays there's a good chance we see more ball movement as even Derozan will want to pass to him as a welcome to the team (don't get used to it) moment.

    Next, people will be saying players who play for the 905 are playing for the G-6.

    I'm talking about the fact you offered jv bebe wright and two unprotected firsts for fucking drummond. That is so above and beyond an overpayment. You have my permission to smack yourself

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.

    Derozan is a good guy and a good teammate, but he doesn't have the vision, and basketball IQ to see how plays develop around him.

    But honestly, I hope we keep up this 10 of 14 losing streak. And forces Masai's hand in firing Casey. Cavs did last year and won it all. Let's do it now! Firecasey!

    Cavs only did because Lebron became the coach, Lue is just a figure head.

    Yeah, David Blatt was fired in January, post-ASG is going to be pretty damn late in the year. Also Blatt was fired because Lebron was already coaching the team and ignoring Blatt. Lue is co-coach with LBJ at best, probably more realistically an ac.

    Lowry is great, but he's not on Lebron's level. Anyone see that NBA.com panel with a bunch of coaches from a couple months ago? Lebron doesn't only call his own team's plays, he's been calling opposing team plays since Miami. Coaches say he'll read their lips during timeouts and direct his teammates to break up the play before the inbounds. He's on another level.
