I have finally calmed down enough to say what anyone else who watched this GREAT and EPIC battle could not help but see. It would not be fair to call for his job but it would be reasonable to ask for an explanation. What was CJ doing out on the floor in that situation and how on earth did he stay there until he fouled out? Its legal to send in subs Ty. In fact its often times a good idea. This time being an excellent example. THe team need to rotate players by the start of the first overtime. They need a blow and asking them to play as many consecutive minutes as they did was not an acceptable call by an NBA level head coach. Of course my personal feeling (and I hope some other keen observing people can back me up on this ) is that OT would never have happened if you just open your eyes and see that Favors needs to close out the last 3-4 minutes of a game with Big AL and SAP and without CJ. HE HAS EARNED THE MINUTES. Look at the havoc he creates defensively and the way he goes after our missed shots. How can you not see the obvious? I read other posts suggesting a serious man crush on CJ and even my wife said as much during the game. Please explain to us, the ticket buyers who pay your salary what is your reasoning?
On the plus side my hat goes off to those guys who worked themselves to exhaustion (AL, Hayward, SAP ) only to be let down by your refusal to send in fresh legs. Anyway best of luck to the guys and thanks for the super effort. Get a win tomorrow and keep playing like you have been. Sooner or later TY has to face up to reality.
