Yes, most of this is on the players' lack of effort and concentration and, if you want to maintain your optimism, luck, but some of this is on Doc. There are a couple of issues that this team has run into this season, and I don't want to be unfair, but I don't see Doc trying to take any action towards settling those issues. I have written about the Terry question multiple times, so I'm not going to bore you any more, but that's still item #1. What has bothered me even more recently, though, is the Pierce question. Doc has always been reluctant to change his star players' roles, and this reluctance might be costing us again. Let's rewind a little bit. Case #1: Doc want...

Comments from the Other Side - Knicks 1/24

Much better effort from the Celtics even if the result wasn't different.  There is definitely something going on with Paul Pierce - just not playing well at all.   The Knick fans weren't quite as bad as they usually are but as always, the stabbing jokes are disgusting.  At least there weren't as many death and injury wishes as usual.   And surprisingly,  some Knicks...

Comments from the Other Side - Hawks 1/25

Well, that wasn't fun.  It's becoming clear that the bench is finally coming around but now the starters are slumping.  The second unit gave us that big lead in the second quarter and then it went away when the starters came back in.  But there's progress.  We  at least got one great half of basketball.    One thing that always strikes me is all the complaints...
