Steinmetz bit his tongue as best he could this morning on KNBR but, ultimately, the point he made on Gary's show was that Nellie is washed up, disinterested, and crazy. He's screwing with young players, has no plan or rational criteria by which to gauge team needs and future projection, and would be an unmitigated disaster with any more personnel authority than he currently has (a lot).
Hmmm. Why does it take them so long to just admit what I was right about all along? Why try to pass it off as some special treasure of media diligence in between team blowjobs and proxy team PR work? Matt, love ya, but get real. You know Nellie is a bloated, Scotch-logged beached whale and it's going to stink a hell of a lot worse before the carcas is disposed of. I recommend dynamite!
The Homer Moron Toolz are already polishing up the massive turd that is a home loss to the league's worst record- all that young talent! They're on such a hot streak!- but really, they all know a real coaching staff would have examined the tape to see WHY this young rebuilding team with nothing but brightness ahead like Portland was beating folks now and then. Instead, it was status quo bullshit and 120+ points surrendered. No spin for this one.
"We just fucking suck, folks. Deal with it. For once in your miserable lives, just admit that you approach your fandom like a moronic bible belter with no concept of reality and shut the fuck up. we're sick of you and your no NBA know-how idiocy." (Don Nelson*)
