    his foolish third quarter choice of inserting the most worthless player on the planet (Ryan Bowen) is what allowed San Antonio to build a lead. They doubled and tripled Yao, coming off of Bowen and when he kicked it out to a wide open Bowen, all he could do was pass the ball to a covered perimeter guard. Bowen's complete lack of any skills outside of hustling allowed his defender to concentrate on Yao with no consequences.

    We played a hard game and I am proud of it, seeing as we didn't have T-Mac and Wesley got hurt. But JVG's insistence of using Bowen, even for the brief amount of PT that he got, is what led to the loss. Couldn't get out of that hole. That's what hurts

    I thought you were going to mention using Howard too much, over Swift.
    That's my beef. :rolleyes:

    Life is not fair. I would rather have a damaged Jon Barry to shoot open jumpers. Why didn't we waive RyBo instead of Barry? :mad:

    Even Stephen Graham would probably have been better than Rybo. :( :(

    Well, as long as JVG is here, RyBo will continue to dazzle us with his stellar hustle. :rolleyes:

    Bowen is an absolute trash player. Sure he hustles and plays with heart, but that junk is overated because he has no skill to make use of.

    When you have allstar skill, hustling and playing with heart makes a big differance. When you are a hopeless scrub, you hustle doesnt make a differance. Bowen cant rebound, block shots, or have good speed. His defense isnt that great. HIs offense, i dont need to get into, it hurts everyone.

    Why on earth this pussy gets playing time over Chuck hayes is a big question. Hayes is fast, can block shots, and rebounds amazingly. Hayes would have helped a lot infact because when SA made that push, they were really hitting the boards. They would miss a shot, but with 2-3 shots a possesion, it wasnt a problem.

    I don't hate to criticize JVG. He deserves it. He's horrible.

    You mean every time Rybo hustles we don't get two points on the scoreboard :cool: JVG seriously needs to forget about putting him in the game and let him concentrate on making sure the Gatorade is the right temperature

    david stern needs to invoke the best interest of the game clause and ban ryan bowen from the association for life.

    Is there any chance the Rockets can pick up a player that can least score a few points?? Who is out there that can be picked up by the Rockets??

    Ryan Bowen - "I will take over the game now!"

    Duncan - "Thanks! I havent been able to do too much today."

    Rybo is the worst player in the nba or at least among the 5 worst. Every time JVG puts him in I want to throw something at the tv.

    Maybe we would still lost if Bowen didn't play.

    But I''ve said it before, and I'll say it again. Even 5 minutes game time is too much for RyanBo.

    Why did Brunson played 24 minutes?

    Ryan Bowen - "Who do you think is better? Juwan or me?"

    Duncan - "You no doubt! You both help us out but added bonus with you...You make me laugh!! Do the chicken dance again when I am pretending to take a 3 pointer at the top ofthe circle."

    I wish Ryan would sprain an ankle and JVG would be forced to use Hayes.

    Hayes is at least a threat on offense.

    Bowen is simply terrible.
