    Ugh not this again. Firing Mark Jackson was the right move.

    yes brilliance of this move is only surpassed by a hiring a rookie coach to take his place

    Why is this such a difficult concept? MJax didn't get along with the bosses. In any job, you appease your boss.

    But then people say, doesn't matter as long as you get results. Well, guess what? He was handed an extremely talented roster. That alone could account for the Dubs' improvement. When your talented roster is less offensively efficient than KEITH SMART's Warriors, you've got a problem. MJax did well getting the players to play hard and to commit to defense, but he hit a wall. Poor adjustments, poor rotations, poor use of time-outs.

    If Kerr is as good as MJax, while appeasing the bosses, that's already an improvement.

    Doesn't help that the Warriors are in a tough conference.

    In any job, you keep the best workers because they make you good. If you don't do that you have a mediocre organization. But hey Warriors are mediocre organization so it's hardly news.

    Yes because we're still run by Chris Cohan and can rely on one-liners instead of offering any analysis. Keep up the good work.

    Uhh, that'd be fine in a text book or internet forum, but the little thing called human nature means politics, networking, personality, etc. trumps "skillz."

    I hate to say it, because its mean... but is true...

    I bet 1% of the reason they fired Mark Jackson was to stop having his wife sing the national anthem before games. :hide:

    one of the nice things about getting league pass cable package this year was watching Warriors games while falling asleep (since I'm on the East Coast). But every once in a while they'd show the national anthem being sung at the Oracle - and Desiree would sing often... and always sing them badly. My wife and I would giddily watch - it made us laugh, cringe, laugh again, and feel kind of dirty afterwards.

    It hasn't felt like the Thunder were ever in it, even for one minute, over the last two games. I know we've all dogpiled Scotty Brooks, but every time you watch an OKC game it's obvious how wasted their talent is in this offense. And did Ibaka really count this much?

    I don't think Brooks has done much wrong this time around. His players just haven't played well. Westbrook will have a lot to prove in the next game.

    I do wish he'd stop reverting to Fisher and Butler so much.

    I respect your opinion but the spurs individually are a lot less talented than the thunders even without ibaka. Their offense just stall after one or two sets. On defense they get really confused with all the constant motion sets. Eventually their defense breaks down and spurs have an open shooter. I don't think anybody on the spurs are capable of creating anything by themselves. Your defense needs to be extremely precise and think about rotations one or two steps ahead.

    2 years ago I think okc lost the first two then won four straight but they had ibaka and Harden then

    After watching these two games, I think OKC would be lucky to squeak out even one win. And funny thing all these critiques on Brooks were talked about in length few weeks back when Memphis took them to 7 games. :lol:

    Guess his job is safe since he can argue the teams been unlucky with injuries back to back years in the playoffs
