    Blowing 13 and 15 point leads on consecutive nights is pathetic. Go a head, blame it on the Mavs and Suns having better talent if you want, but the bottom line is JVG is getting out-coached.

    In the Dallas game, he had Deke on Devan George during the 3rd quarter...are you serious?? When the Mavs went small we should have gone small. The only problem with that is JVG wont freakin play Snyder or Wells because "they arent in good enough shape"...blah, blah, blah!

    Against the Suns, JVG made by far the stupidest move I have ever seen. Bonzi had been playing fairly well, except a horrible shot, but Van Gundy subbed in Rafer for Bonzi with 5 minutes to go in the 4th, which that left John Lucas on the court. Thats good and all if Lucas could hit a shot every now and then, but he cant. Also, did he ever think about sitting in a zone so Nash couldnt dribble where ever the hell he wanted to? Nash penetrating and kicking to Marion for an easy dunk wasnt working, so make them beat you from outside.


    MY POINTS: 1) Jeff needs to get over his holding grudges ****, and not believing in young players. Snyder could have definitely helped the last 2 nights, but because he has been out for 6 weeks and we have been playing good, he cant even get off the bench? So we are going to put ourselves at a disadvantage with a lineup of Rafer, Luther and Lucas all on the court at the same time just because Snyder hasnt gotten in any "Practice time"???????
    The guy is a big guard, which is what this team has been lacking and JL3 is getting more PT then him....un-freaking-believable!

    2) Bonzi Wells WILL HELP THIS TEAM if given a chance. I've said it before, this team wont do crap in the playoffs without Bonzi getting significant PT.
    17 minutes, 6 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks...pretty good contribution in 17 mins. if you ask me. But JVG is holding a grudge against him, but he doesnt have the balls to come out and say it. This guy would be starting on 90% of other teams, and if not starting here, he should at least be getting 25-30 minutes.

    Wasn't his fault.

    Suns being down by double digit points is nothing, they can come back from any lead faster than any team in the league.

    I wouldn't put any blame on JVG for nothing right now, we're playing elite teams without our two best players.

    Win some, you lose some..

    He's also to blame for male patterned baldness and hemorrhoids.

    So you're saying that if we had Coach X (whoever you consider the best coach in the world) that we would have beaten the Mavs away without Yao, then beaten the Suns without Yao or McGrady on the second night of a back-to-back?


    Say we were completely healthy all season, and we were good enough to win 60 games. That means we lose 22 in a season. If you could pick and choose 22 losses out of the schedule, you're telling me that this back-to-back set, even if we were fully healthy, wouldn't be a PRIME candidate for 2 losses?

    Please take 10 seconds to think about your answer.

    wow at least wait until a team that's not leading the entire league in wins beats us. jesus christ this is getting ridiculous.

    Bonzi, however, should start to get more playing time. As you can see, our defense is still pretty good and bonzi is no slouch on the defensive end (his blocks were amazing), but we need his damn offense.

    JVG should get over his grudges against his own players and start providing an environment that allows everyone to contribute in games. He should give at least 10 minutes every other game or most games to VSpan, Novak, Synder, and Wells(Synder and Wells should increase as they get in shape).

    JVG is never to blame for anything . . nothing EVER - JVGOnlyFans

    For the Record - We doing ok . . . not concerned
    but
    I have an over inflated view of this team
    I felt we were a 60 win team at the beginning of the season
    I beleive we are a Championship Caliber Tearm
    all JVG has to do is bring it home

    This is like have the fasters car in the Indy 500
    All you need is a driver that can handle it

    Clutchfans are becoming desperate, I never thought "JVG:He's to blame" and "JVG=Coach of the Year" came up the same day. ;)
