This is a thread where you can post about your team that did not make the playoffs, has been eliminated from the playoffs, or about fishing, or fish. This thread exists because news about eliminated teams often gets lost in the main thread due to playoff team discussion, which, probably is how it should be.


If I get ahold of TNT Gone Fishin' pics I will post them in the OP.


A request: I'm not a mod so I can't enforce this but I would like if people post twitter links they post some actual thoughts about it, and also the people who post after a game one loss "can I post in this thread now????" please don't.

Hi, the Lakers are gonna hire a bad coach and continue to be rudderless as they waste the remainder of LeBron's prime while throwing away young talented players in poorly planned trades

Probably.

I guess I could talk myself into Monty and I've been calling Lue underrated here for for like three years but I'm not so hot on other options. Well I'd like Messina but I don't hear any rumors connecting him at this point.

Some Suns fans are talking themselves into the James Jones permanent hire. I don't buy it personally. We need to be a top 3 pick in the draft because nobody in their right loving mind is coming to phoenix, no matter how good Devin played or how many ladies he got pregnant off the insta.

For what it's worth Phoenix usually gets at least a meeting with a good free agent every offseason, the weather and Mill Ave are amazing selling points. Maybe James is a good enough dude to finally get one to sign. But yeah ideally that's a job that takes a lot of experience and a commitment to establishing a strong culture from scouting down.

I dunno, this inspired me to read a bunch of articles about whether or not Danny Ferry is actually racist and it seems like the answer is "maybe not" so I guess he's the guy they should probably hire.

Lakers sources I'd consider good are in disagreement as to if the Lakers are going to go after a team president or not. Going big and going after Bob Meyers, I dunno, seems a bit unrealistic and I'm not sure why he'd have a reason to move but I guess it makes sense to try. I like the idea of going after West of course if possible. Either thing isn't going to be doable until June, though.

For some reason whenever the Lakers have a patient coaching search the media absolutely freaks out but I wish they would wait until they settle the president issue, if they're going to settle it.

I absolutely agree about threes being too important. It just isn't as fun to watch people shoot a shot so many times that they miss 60% or more of the time.

It's the sort of thing that I don't know how they get back in the box though.

Like maybe if they did something crazy like ban defenders from the paint, it would push people towards attacking the basket more. Also could lead to cool dunks. But also could lead to very slow games due to defenses violating this all the time.

The spacing part is key, because Ingram was the 11th best iso player in the league but defenses are also aware of the fact that he basically will only take threes until he misses one and then stops, so defenses dont' guard him particularly close without the ball.

Patrick Beverly would be a pretty nice fit, but I half think he would probably take less money to stay with the Clippers because he seems like he's found a nice home there.

His last locker room was toxic enough that his best player spent a solid month pouting until half of the team was finally traded, and his second best player demanded a trade going into the season, so are we sure this is true?

Stephen Jackson's not the only example of Pop losing the locker room. LMA's first year, the mess around Kawhi and not to mention that all of those dudes hated him when he was GM and pretty much ignored him when he took over as coach. Obviously it's easy to blame the involved players, because all the examples are locker rooms with guys who are notorious, but I think that's illustrative of my point, which is that coaches only have so much control over what type of culture the locker room has. If anything this is a GM thing more than anything.

I mean I can name four guys and a reality TV show notorious for being locker room problems with that Cavs team that year.

Don't get me wrong, the Lakers are going to have locker room problems this year because Javale and Rondo are likely to come back but I think Cool Older Brother Ty Lue (or Cool Uncle Who's Religious But Not a Dick About It Monty Williams had they gone that direction) have as better chance of reaching people than Cankerous Preacher Mark Jackson or Bully Brother Jason Kidd.

Are we sure his defensive schemes are actually good? It's hard to separate that from personnel but I think it could also be a case of his defense being so influential that teams have figured out ways to successfully counter it.

Regardless i think it's pretty unlikely that any coach is going to get LeBron to try all that hard on defense in the regular season (which to be clear I think is probably a reasonable approach for him given his career minutes). Lue couldn't do it in Cleveland so I don't know why he'd suddenly be able to now.


I'm fine with him not selling out on defense constantly but he can't be a tick above 2016 James Harden like he was the second half of the season.
