    This is a me first team. Most playing for themselves and their stats esp Harden at the expense of what is best for the team (winning)

    There is not the selfless, team oriented basketball and culture where you put the team first and make sacrifices one for all and all for one (GSW, Spurs etc)

    With the talent here, no question this should be an elite team in this league but the egos and personalities and leadership hinder all that

    Sounds to me like the guy he called a huge winner in an interview a few days ago is going to start getting 35min a game now. Corey Brewer

    Sounds like a bunch of BS.

    Had the Rockets won with a three at the end there, I doubt JB is as upset. Despite the fact that the team played and has played like crap so often.

    What system is JB talking about?

    These guys aren't running a system. They are playing the same ugly basketball they've been playing except guys aren't hitting shots and the defensive focus is non existent.

    These guys don't have a game plan. They just play street ball, but when we win its ignored. And since we won so much last year it was ignored.

    Never ignore in victory what you wouldn't in defeat JB.

    He is calling out Harden and Jones.... Jones while he been playing well.... is a blackhole...you know if you give him the ball....you will not see it again.

    Harden for 4 minutes...went back the old ISO ball, but he wasnt aggressive, just held the ball at top of key, and jacked a 3...or passed it with little to no time to do anything but jack a 3

    he needs to give a good explanation first why no timeouts were called in the last 2 losses.

    it happens once, it may be a brain fart. but twice? how do you explain that???

    Sounds like he's calling out Dwight to me. Look at his body language during the game. If things aren't going his way or if he's not getting the touches he wants he doesn't play hard and he doesn't seem interested in the game or helping the team.

    Just lip service after another embarrassing loss.

    Biggest mistake of the game was not calling a timeout when they couldn't inbound the ball. That's on you JB and on Trevor the inbounder as well... but mostly on JB.

    Just call out the guy you want to call out. You're going to get canned anyway. This team needs a coach that would stop the "ugly basketball" as it is happening not after the fact.

    He's calling out Harden. Will Harden respond by changing his ways or with the passive-aggressive garbage that got McHale fired.

    We'll see. I threw up my hands in disgust several times down the stretch because it was disgusting basketball. When will Harden get it through his thick skull that when the same iso garbage fails 3-4 plays in-a-row, it's time to do something different.
