    Why would you be angry about it? I'm not. Just disappointed and frustrated.

    Maybe. We will see if they even decided to buy a light bulb.

    Great. We have a semblance of something we can call a plan for this organization to run itself by. The only question is will they stick to it?

    Wonder if this changes how they view restructuring.

    As far as potential dead money there's no difference in guaranteeing money to a guys who's 30 and restructuring the contract of a 27 or 28 year old to the point where he has more prorated money than the 30 year old free agent when the younger player hits 30 years old.

    Lol at everyone criticizing Stephen's comments. For the first time in a long time I actually have hope for this team.

    Feels great tbh

    The Joneses need to stop listening to the media.

    I mean, maybe the problem isn't age. Maybe the problem is that our players are not good enough.

    Our evaluations and abilities to judge how good the talent is from season to season remains the biggest problem.

    Knowing how to be critical of a player, regardless of how much they are earning or how much they are liked, has to improve.

    If they for once said, you know, the play had diminished and we wanted to move in a different direction--that would mean something to me.

    What they are admitting in a passive-aggressive way is that the players were getting too much money and were not producing because of age and injury. The economics were a driving factor. I can guarantee you that if Ware took a pay cut, you would be hearing right now how they are sure he will rebound.

    Nevermind the fact we ourselves made the critical error of assuming they were better than they were.

    Self analysis is just as important as the talent. You have be able to identify problems before you fix them.
