    Oh, I’m sorry forgot that MDA is still our coach and there isn’t enough room at the end of the bench with Hartenstein sitting there. FWIW.... watched the game on NBA TV and the opposing team’s announcers kept saying they felt sorry for the Rockets backups because they were just too small to get any rebounds. Great job MDA...finally found a good backup center and you revert back to small ball. Undersized ball will never win a title, but deep down we all know that don’t we? Never will forgive MDA for benching Harrell for the full playoff series a few years ago and the the Manimal last year. Looks like Hartenstein will get that honor this year.

    We need forwards so I'm willing to take any warm body, including Kenneth Faried, but I must say this:

    KENNETH FARIED SUCKED AT DEFENSE.

    He is a good energy player but he is not the answer. Yes, he got a chase down block sometimes, but there is a reason he was chasing people down instead of boxing them out. There is a reason he washed out of multiple teams in spite of putting up similar stats. There is a reason he is currently unemployed.

    I wish we had tape of every game online where I could go back and remind everyone of his dark moments down the stretch of the season and in the Jazz series.

    He played like 4 minutes in the whole Jazz series....not sure that is a great sample size. By the way, his defense was much better than House, Green, McLemore, etc. I just recall monster blocks and great rebounds, along with diving all over the place and monster dunks. Really think he is better than our existing scrubs. He played on Team USA, something that none of the previously mentioned have done. Again, a moot point because he is over 6’6” which prohibits him from getting meaningful minutes with MDA as coach.

    Double double hustling machine who played very good defense. Saying he doesn’t play defense over and over does not make a false statement any more true. Post video as evidence...you can’t because he was good at defense. He was MVP of several regular season games last year because of his overall gameplay.

    I agree that Faried isn't the answer but I'd take him back if only to cut into some of Tucker's minutes........oh who am I kidding. He'd be sitting next to Hartenstein as Tucker gets ran over by 7 footers for critical rebounds.

    who would have thought putting a heavily incentivized contract in front of an NBA coach would be a bad idea?

    A new coach or some better veterans that can coach themselves, ala Ariza/Luc...


    We are unprepared and unmotivated far too often.

    we need a hard-nosed coach who won't say 'nah, we'll be fine.'

    Should have signed Kenny Wooten then.

    He is Manimal sized w/Manimal athleticism and relentlessness - but on DEFENSE.

    Overeating his D just a tad, but we sure could have used his energy and offense tonight.

    I want anyone at this point. Don't cut Clark for nothing. Fill the roster spot with a 4 and let's go! I fear tillman will leave the team as is though.

    We need a coach who is willing to trust minutes to the young guys.
