      No one listens to any of their podcasts. Tried once (just to see how bad it actually was)…. I’ve taken higher quality dumps after three straight days of drinking in college. Senior citizens with digestive issues in a Prius sound better. Worst of all, my owner uses a pic instead of a hair brush when he gets ready for his millennial-infested, douchey, bourbon tastings.

    If you’re George, why would you want to stay? Westbrook is a better version of Allen Iverson and I’m a Sixers fan. Allen had all the talent in the world but you couldn’t form a “team” with him until Larry Brown finally gave up and just surrounded him with ALL role players. They let Iverson “get his” and the rest of them played defense and scored the dirty points. Cuz knew this too.

    Like the cuz said that type of system wouldn’t work in todays dunk or 3 pointer game so they will keep throwing names next to Westbrook and hope it clicks at some point, but it never will. This years team was a team in no sense of the word. Just a collection of names that never blended together. Durant left for a reason. He and the cuz knew. Now George knows.

    I need the Cuz to talk me down. How do we blow a 22 point lead with Meek in the House? If Simmons would have just given us 15 we win. This is on him. I guess we’ll all listen to the Cuz today and get fired up for game 3.

    Stevens is out coaching the fuck out of Brown. The Sixers have way more talent in this series. And when Boston is healthy we will have years of getting boat raced. Fuck Colangelo too.

  • Hey, Anthony What About This May 4, 2018 at 8:37 am

    I think the most interesting thing about Giroux’s quote was, and I’m paraphrasing, that the team gets rattled by the fans and gets off their game plan at home when they are down. Isn’t the coach’s responsibility to call a timeout or pull the goalie to settle the team back down and get them on their game plan? It showed many times this year where the team was disjointed and looked like they had no plan. It’s beating a dead horse, but this coach is a poor game manager. You don’t have the best recruits from the MidWest at your disposal and just roll lines and beat inferior teams, it may actually take a little coaching and sometimes just some words to get the group back together and on the same page. Peter Laviolette might have been the best I’ve ever seen at doing that, maybe this coach should watch some old tape.

    Also, Morgan Frost won’t be AHL eligible next year, at least for the regular season. He will only be 19.

    After his once-in-a-lifetime me-will-never-happen-again season, Fraud Giroux’s trade value will never be greater er than it is now. If Hextall has any sense, we would peddle him at the NHL Entry Draft next month, and see if he could swindle any gullible takers, to set into the top 10 of the draft, which is universally being hailed as thennest draft since 2003.
