  1. Thought this would be a fun idea. More of an off-season thread but I got to thinking about it the other day when watching some Kings ball under Joerger...and seeing him do the same exact Zbo post up offense with them made me appreciate Fiz a bit more again. Coaches: Hollins (A-): What can I say, he got us the furthest we've ever been and had an elite working unit. He was a hard-nosed guy, no question, but it got the best out of a once great core. He had his flaws, but that WCF run was magical. Also, this was just before the 3 point boom took full effect so it wasn't too outdated yet and the last of an era of basketball style imo. He was the only coach to whip Marc into shape as well. Imagine current Marc under Hollins? Would be great. A- might be generous but I'm sticking with it. Fizdale (B+): So far, I really can't complain about Fiz. He came in and instantly made an impact and brought life to a dying team with a much more upbeat style and rhythm offense. He got more out of Conley (possibly thinks too much of him though) and Marc and just about everyone not named Zbo. Although, I thought if Zbo would have bought in more, he would have flourished. He has his flaws as well, but really can't complain with what he's done so far. Hubie (B) : Not bad, Not great Iavaroni (C): Fratello (C-): Joerger (D+): I know I may get heat for this..but I thought and still think Joerger is an awful coach. He has a poor man's Hollins offense, with less respect, and beyond outdated in today's game. He has an odd and stubborn rotation approach. The only thing he was really good at was out of bounds plays, since he's good at Xs and Os. But running a full game was consistently hard to completely took shooters out of the offense and ball handlers, which semi worked with Zbo and Gasol, but when Zbo started fading and Gasol refused to step up in big moments, it was doomed to's not a coincidence that his teams consistently can't shoot despite personnel. Right now the Kings are dead last in 3PA even with a shooting core. Aka, I don't miss him.
  2. Joerger won 59% running his players into the ground. Fizdale implemented an entire new system, is willing to rotate youth, and actually rested his guys a ton.

    Nobody wanted to listen to me and decided to attack me when I said not to get so excited by a team and players that do the same thing EVERY year. Start out completely dominating, Marc aggressive, shooters loose and attacking strong on both ends. This is the year... Oops.. then Marc starts deferring and heads for a mental vacation only to have us fall to a 7/8 seed when we clearly have potential for a top 5 seed.. confused why we drop so many winnable games...then we get into playoffs re-energized, show flashes that we really could have done damage this year......only to see the Spurs or Warriors in the first rounds due to not getting a higher seed.. Marc has 2 great MVP games, then continues to get shut down by a SF, defers to Conley, slams ball, lose in 6, retool some of the role players, rinse & repeat.

  5. I disagree with that, numerous times we'd play down to whatever team regardless of coach. Sure Dave would get us up for regular season, to the degree he would burn everybody out. That was a main knock on him, so it's a positive and a negative.
  6. I did enjoy Hubie. Also not having to listen to him ramble on ESPN broadcast was nice.

    He was thinking of Joerger. Joerger starts George Hill and still dumps it in to Zbo the entire game.. No one can shoot in his offense over there either and he runs the slowest pace yet has the fastest guy in the league. Comical really.
  8. The season only started a month ago lol..
  9. I thought Marc was gonna be MVP this year and he's never been in this shape?

    Ever since Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green shut Marc down completely in the playoffs, I gave up on Marc. Harden, James Harden, locking him down a few times forcing Fiz to call him out was the cherry on top. It's embarrassing to watch really. How many times do we have to wait for the playoffs to see the same Marc output to move on from him. Who cares if he gets us regular season wins, we end up 7 or 8 seed anyways.
  11. It's called clockwork. We do the same story every year. You can rag on me all you want but it's absolutely and sadly true.

    This is why you don't get high and mighty (especially the grizz with their psych) when you win a few potential flukey games early in the season.

    But but his shape! He's different this year! (Even though he's dominated the start of every season and falls apart slowly only to disappear every second round, every single year) This year is different!
  15. Can all the Tony Allen fanboys admit they were wrong about his value now? The defense looks better.

    Clock. Work. I told ya'll to stop getting overly excited at the first 5 games of the season. Happens every **** year we start out flaming hot.
  19. Charlotte @ Memphis 10/30/17

    Like Clockwork.
  20. Memphis @ Dallas 10/25/17

    And then end up with a 7 seed and not give ourselves a chance. Like clockwork.
  21. Memphis @ Dallas 10/25/17

    Mavs are one of the worst teams in the league this year.
  22. Memphis @ Dallas 10/25/17

    Like clockwork.
  23. Wrong, I made a new username because I like Fizdale. I just find it funny, I could probably dig up our game threads early the last 2 years and have the same hype. Was it last year where we were 2nd seed for a good portion of the early season and then just fell off per usual? It's clockwork is all I'm saying.
  24. Enjoy it while it lasts! Short term memories are nice!
