WMC 12/13: Mercy kill. (0-4)

I agree with you guys. I know they're useful right now in camp for bodies and drills and whatnot, but I'm eager to see our bench shorten up. We've got five games left and I'd like to see us at least trim SOME of the fat off. Guys like Nelson and Aguilar are useless. Let them go. Maybe you can take Goudelock with them if you're sold on Johnson-Odom.

I'd definitely like to see the rotations start to even out. I don't even mind Brown's "bench-by-committee" idea that much, but I think if you do that you need to shorten the bench up.

^I read somewhere that Mike was going to start tightening up his rotations. I forgot where I read that, though. I would like to cut off some of this dead weight as well on the roster.

^Make sure to yell at Mike Brown and tell him to leave the starters in.

I can't believe there are 10 pre-season games. Has it always been like that? Wayyyy too many.

Well, the first half is over and it looks like Pau isn't the only one who is fatigued.

I feel like their used to be only 8 preseason games, I could be wrong but that sounds right to me, either way 10 is too much.

I wouldn't even know where to begin complaining, our whole team was garbage tonight except Kobe in the 3rd. I don't like Mike Brown, I don't get him playing the end of the end of the bench so much, guys that will clearly not make the team, don't get Kobe playing the entire 1st and 3rd quarters if you're going to go the route of playing the garbage time guys, if that's your plan don't waste Kobe's legs that much in a game you're throwing away on purpose. Aside from that I don't know if the players we got are just that bad or if Brown is that bad, or if it's some of both. These guys cannot make baskets, it's the name of the game and they can't do it, it's sad. And Brown, if he manages to screw this up with the starting lineup he has been given when the real games start, he needs to be fired mid-season, early season, whenever, Jim Buss is gonna have to take a hit to his pride on that one. But, this is preseason, I'll wait to see how we look with Howard in the starting lineup and Hill back with the bench and Nelson, Aguilar, and some other trash gone.

Actually I got the feeling with guys like Nelson and Aguilar out there early that this was a "make or break" game. I'm guessing (maybe hopeful) that they're looking at which guys are going to lose their jobs in the next couple of days.

Nothing is guaranteed as long as guaranteed contracts like Clark, Duhon, Morris and Blake are on the roster.

Well if we can somehow rid ourselves of Morris, Blake and Goudelock and acquire Barbosa and maybe another emergency guard I'll be a different kind of "salty"......
