I thought Kupchak's reply (and TJ Simers' subsequent column in the LA Times today) were pretty good. First Odom and now Gasol have acted like babies this year.
That said, the more I see of Mike Brown, in action and in interviews, the more I'm beginning to dislike the word "affable".
i don't know. tj's always looking for the take-down. he belongs on SW&D. as for brown, i don't mind his manner, but his rotations are pretty difficult to figure out. i mean mcroberts is on the bench for a week, then suddenly he's back in the game. and then he's not. i've gotta say -- and i never would have believed i'd say it -- but matt barnes is just about my favorite player this year. he's the one guy who goes out with energy every minute he's on the floor. doesn't get big numbers, but makes big plays.
