Plays no defense, turns the ball over, takes stupid shots and plays no D late in games. HE CHOKES

NO POINTS IN THE 4th quarter and just a unbelievable stupid shot because Rudy's afraid to go to the basket

For gods sake, if you're too impatient then leave already and stop annoying everyone else with your pissy crap. You're free to leave.
Do you know the owner who out there is worth signing - I love people that think we should pay someone just to pay thats why the franchise became what it is stupid contracts. Smart decisions in the draft and good financial decisions in free agency is how you do like the Spurs and win

Rudy made a bonehead move and shot he still had a great game. But name me someone who can stop Kobe??? Go ahead I'll wait. Also Ivy got schooled by Phil in the end. This loss was more bad coaching and having the wrong players in at the time.

I gotta an idea! Let's trade Rudy for expiring contracts and draft picks to the Lakers. Then let's watch them win the next 5 NBA championships. rolleyes.gif

So, say I think ****ing Elvis cost us the basketball game. Should I make a thread about it? Not only that, should I make a thread about it after EVERY SINGLE FREAKING LOSS?!?

I don't care if you thought this up in your head. Maybe thinking is a special event worth celebrating for you. I don't know. But as far as this particular "thought" is concerned, it's a stupid thought, it's a poorly thought out thought, and it doesn't deserve to be made into a thread once, much less five times.

There is nothing wrong with criticizing a player, but for the love of god, if it's not even accurate or valid or original criticism, and this fits all three criteria, then just keep it to your **** self and stop whining.

I thought you were leaving?

Yeah, so let's just forget those other times when he helped carry us in the 4th. Let's totally ignore his 23 pts helped keep us in this game in the first place. Anyway, I thought Rudy was a ballhog, people should be happy he didn't take a shot right? He's not the franchise player anyway so why should he be taking shots?

Kobe had five turnovers, but did he hesitate to take the shot? There was no way in hell OJ was getting that ball on the last play, Rudy had to shoot it.

The Spurs suffered through quite a few bad seasons before they became a top notch team.

You use that example of of "who can guard Kobe", well, who can out coach Phil? Why don't you give the same break to Ivy that you give to Rudy?

+1



this is absolute horse crap for real.

this was not a loss on rudy.

when you have rudy and mayo combining for 45 points, hak chipping in 14/4 along with darko and gasol in double digits and plenty of rebs,

this loss was on no one.

the win was on kobe.


the griz played a great game and despite losing both times, gave real contenders in the hornets and lakers a serious run for their money and displayed our ability to be in the playoff picture to to long from now. rudy did a great job tonight. all the griz did. nobody had a bad game, kobe just had a better one. thats why hes kobe.

we're missing one serious contributor to being in the playoff race and 2 pieces imo from being in the conference race. those plus a bench retooling and we're in a serious finals race and this is gearing up to be a good rivalry in the making between us and portland pretty soon.


doesnt seem hak will be around next year, but with his inspired off the bench play, and his determination to improve something every year, i think we'd be suckers to let him go. hes a great bench scorer and his D has improved alot. he makes big shots when theyre needed from far out and is forcing it less in the paint. he's also passing alot more as of the last 7 games it seems.




this thread is 100% garbage and anybody that agrees with the title is as well.


that was a great game!

This is the most ridiculous thread I think I've seen on this board in at least an hour.

Pinning this loss on Rudy is laughable at best. Were any of the people on this board sitting behind our bench, or have a spot holed up cozy next to Coach Ivy's brain matter? For all any of us know, that could have been the play that Coach drew up for Rudy. He is our go-to guy in the coach's eyes, be it seniority or who was hotter that game, so he gets the ball. I felt comfortable with Rudy taking the shot because he has been shooting lights out during this homestand. Credit the Lakers for playing him close with great defense, the shot didnt go in. Most of the people sniping on this topic probably thought this would be a blowout, and the Grizz showed toughness and grit and fell apart in the last minute. I'll take it from the youngest team in the NBA with a smile on my face. It was a great game.

People that want Rudy traded are fools. There is no player we could get for him that is equal compensation or better, and if we used him as bait to get our scoring 4, people on here would complain that we didnt have a great 3/swingman. One piece at a time, folks.

Oh, and he's only in his 3rd season too.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a member of the Sunshine Patrol. I do not have a mancrush on Rudy Gay. I just think it is seriously warped to blame this loss on Rudy when he was most likely doing what the coach asked. If it comes out in the Commercial Appeal tomorrow that in a post-game interview that Rudy said "I did what I wanted to, I dont listen to the coach, I hate Jesus, puppies, kittens and the free world..."then and only then will you have a valid point about him being a problem for this team.

It's rather unfortunate for you though that you were too dense to grasp it the first several times around. I really shouldn't have had to sit you down and spell it out to you how idiotic this thread is.
