ihatetimthomas got it right with Philly and Andre Iguodala. He signed that huge contract this summer and has to live up to it or at least come close. It wouldn't be Mo Cheeks. If Brand isn't fitting in it'll be because "the team hasn't gotten used to having that low post weapon yet". But Iggy's been here, he's our leading scorer, got the big money, now has to produce like he earned that money.
Yea thats what I was thinking. Iggy has a lot to prove especially with the huge deal he received. And if the 76ers struggle, the blame will be bestowed upon him not living up to his deal. Blame will not be placed upon Brand bc he is a proven star in this league and we know what he is capable of. Iggy has already been dealt criticism for his lack of consistency and a solid jumper. If Iggy struggles, the team will struggle, and he will be blamed
Hahaha, Theus is a good one. I can't believe how much crap papers are writing about him nowadays. Making it out like he was a stupid rookie coach who made tons of mistakes last season. What he did last year was amazing considering the roster he's working with.
I'm a bit disappointed that from about half down the first page, people started denying the existence of the Kings. We may not be good, but we still are in the Pacific division.
For Detroit, fans are already blaming Micheal Curry.
Most recently, regarding the Jason Maxiell situation…
Curry is committing to Amir Johnson and some people feel that Maxiell should start.
At this point forward, every roster rotation move will reap major criticism from Pistons fans. Curry is a rookie coach with pretty much no experience so he is under the microscope. Remember, this is a Pistons team which has:
gone to 6 straight ECF
Won 50 or more games in the last 7 seasons
Won the division in 6 of those 7 seasons
has ranked in the top 3 in the whole conference since 2002
Expectations are high and the pressure to win is eminent.
Larry Miller has a history of running his mouth to players, especially All Star PFs. Unlike Karl Malone, Carlos Boozer is not in need of a father figure, and does not seem to respond to or care for his comments.
