Somehow I think if you were at the end of an 82-game season that put an enormous strain on your physical well being you would be singing a different tune.
What......the players who logged large minutes this season were not playing.....the scrubs who shouldn't be tired at all were not even trying out there, it was pathetic.

If I were on this team drawing such a large paycheck I would BUST MY ASS OUT THERE ON EVERY SINGLE FUCKING PLAY. And to see these guys essentially give zero effort out there is infuriating to me. Because if I did my job with the same lackadaisical, "I don't give a shit" attitude for even one single day, I'd be FIRED.
I see this argument a lot, and honestly..I just don't understand why people try to compare professional athletes with themselves. It's comparing apples to oranges. If you don't like the product that you think shows no effort, then don't watch the product. If enough people did that, they would have to change their ways or they wouldn't be given contracts.

I just can't get too worked up over this game. Don't know. I'm just really not invested emotionally in game 82 of the regular season when we have already won 61 games.

I think the whole thing is about the players not truly playing tonight, they just seemed to be there to be there.

Well, when your coach calls it a "practice", what do you expect? You're on the road, last game of the season. You're not interested in the game because you're looking ahead to the playoffs.

I just don't have any problems with it. What can I say.

I understand it, but what was the difference for the Hawks? Essentially they played for pride, we didn't.

Easier for bench players to get motivated and play well at home. That's just a fact of the NBA.

I thought he called them "high-level practices".....if this is high-level practice then I don't even want to see their regular practices....:eek:

I dont think anyone has a problem with losing, or sitting guys. Its just that they didnt care one bit; and I mean ONE BIT.

Tonight wasnt even a practice. It was more like, "how much longer til we can leave and go to this new hangout spot tonight, I need a muthafuckin a Dos Equis"



(I have no idea if anyone really drinks that)

4-6 in our last 10 games.....not a good way to end the regular season.

Oh, GIVE IT A REST!!!! The real season starts this weekend. The real season has Lebron, Shaq and the other regulars playing their normal roles.

My only fear is that there may be a little rust for a game or two.

Hawks haven't rested their guys for several straight games now. We were pretty energetic during the first 'rest' games. I think the drag of it has caught up to us.
