    Thanks, Clutch...

    I still won't believe that GSW are unbeatable just in one season

    This is the first season they have been playing out of their minds and beating everyone...Memphis had the best outing so far

    "don't panic, we still got three more years to perfect the streetball offense and switcheroo defense"

    overhaul the offense and defense = get better coaching

    better players will only get you so far, like frustrated players giving up like we've been seeing so often in these playoffs

    look what Kerr and Budenholzer did for the Warriors and Hawks

    and Morey wants to shove it down our throats that McHale is a good coach

    The league has already changed, and McHale still wants to post up Dwight to dominate in the paint.

    hawks are in the same place as the rockets except they have higher upside and depth on their bench with shroeder. next season they're adding walter tavares.

    the warriors have former franchise cornerstones and top defensive players in bogut and iggy. livingston was a high lottery pick who went through two horrific injuries on both knees. curry, thompson, and green would all command max contracts right now. then they have the double double machine david lee who's hardly used on the bench. that talent was already there. the difference this season for their roster has been health.

    Very nice podcast. The team needs a PG and a Tom Thibidou type of defensive coach to get to next level. They did get better defensively this season but the inconsistent defensive rotations throughout the playoffs and the sloppy turnovers was very frustrating to watch.

    The biggest problem this team has is basketball smarts. You have to understand the game and some of our guys play on just talent.

    Dwight can have a good game and all of a sudden they will settle for an outside shot, even when there 1 for 17. That's dumb basketball.. You see guys forcing the shot or holding the ball for 10 t0 15 seconds instead of passing to the open man.

    On defense it looks like there's no communication, guys playing as individuals instead of team defense. Brewer, Smith and Jones have so nuch talent... but they can play so dumb at times.. Harden can be selfish and then act like a pouting baby at times.

    These guys need to grow up and play smarter.

    Our defensive energy was poor this game. We need some monster pf who is a beast defensively and rebounding wise. Problem is we don't have that at the 4.

    The other thing is we do need a 2nd playmaker who can hit the 3. Dragic would be perfect sadly we missed that boat.
