I know what you mean. I was kinda missing him being a Clip tonight. Particularly as he was scoring so easily.

Man your tough to please, lol. Blow out games for the most part always get sloppy at the end. Players lose their focus sometimes and it's natural when a game is in their pocket like tonight.

The Spurs are up by 11 in the 4th with all 3 big stars out. How does Pops do it?

BTW Spurs have their "Big 3" out and STILL are beating the Bulls in a blowout. Pop is the ultimate coach and SA is a lock for that 1 seed. I was hoping they would lose some games now but won't happen with Pop coaching 3rd stringers to blowouts vs good teams.

Bulls have a great coach and are very shorthanded as well. Difference is Pop is even better than Thibs.

Wow the game was close last time I checked then Spurs went on a run. Bulls are shorthanded but the Spurs don't even have their big 3!

Ridiculous.

Its not fair how Popovich can make games competitive with a bunch of role players.

The Bulls had everyone except Rose. Difference is in the game the Spurs have 8 T.O's and Bulls have 19 T.O.s. The Bulls can't guard the 3 as the Spurs are 8-16 and they let the Spurs shoot 52%....hmmm, think the great Thibs could have done better than that.

Bulls are also outrebounding the Spurs by like 25 and have 7 times the second chance points last I saw. Please don't compare apples to oranges. Some teams lose and it's not the result of coaching. In our case it's largely due to inept coaching. Thibs is one of the 3 best coaches in the NBA and has gotten the Bulls into the 4 seed and playing excellent all year long despite no Rose. Like others have said when the Bulls replaced Vinny with Thibs they won 21 more games immediately and shot up from an average defense to an ELITE best in NBA defense.

"Some teams lose and it's not the result of coaching"...Bingo.

Check out his record against the west, then check out his record against the east, then teams above .500 and below .500. See where the majority of his wins come from...then get back to me. Smile

The Bulls roster without Rose is worse than our roster without CP3.

You need to stop it with the if this if that hypothetical stuff. Are you really trying to argue agianst Thibs being the better coach than VDN?

No that's not my argument, I know some coaches are better than others. My point is, coaches matter, talent or players matter more.

And no, I'm not going to stop with pointing out statistical facts, lol.

You mean .719 winning percentage vs. .519? That's a 200 percentage point difference, son. Hahaha.

Also, you saying it's a fact that if the Bulls were in the West, they wouldn't have that record. That's not statistical, it's hypothetical.

Tense.. the bottom line was your joke was off base. Vinny is still one of the worst coaches in the NBA and you're wrong to act like a blowout win changes that. It's never good to win IN SPITE of a coach. A coach should be adding at least SOMETHING to the team and Vinny doesn't. When CP3 is out we have no game plan, no direction. Pop can start a team full of D Leaguers and they still play the same style of basketball, although obviously not as good.

No bonehead, I this year.

Bonehead, huh? Struck a nerve?

This year? Okay, then:

Vinny this year without his superstar PG = .500

Thibs without his superstar PG = .588

Just stop it. I know deep inside, you want to believe Vinny is the better coach. Hahaha.

EDIT: LMAO, you erased "bonehead." What's the matter, did you think you were breaking the board rules? Also, like I said, it seems like you don't know the difference between statistical and hypothetical.

No, no. no. You do not call me what I call you, son. Stop ignoring my question. Why did you decide to erase "bonehead"?

Who cares about his record against the West? The West is tougher, no doubt. But they are not in the West so they aren't gonna be that familiar with Western teams the way we are. It's not like our winning percentage vs. teams above .500 without CP is that much better, is it? They are 13-16 vs. teams over .500? I'm actually surprised that it isn't that bad. That is impressive for a team that has been missing their MVP all year long.

You changed it because I initially struck a nerve. You got so mad that you decided to attack me instead of my post.

Your point is irrelevant. Actually, it kinda supports my argument that Thibs is the better coach. Talent is masking Vinny's coaching. Since you like hypothetical thinking, can you imagine if Vinny was the coach of this current Bulls team? Again, in my last post, I pointed out that a 13-16 record vs. teams over .500 isn't bad considering they are missing their former MVP. But here you are trying to imply that it is.

What a great win! Amazing to come back from one impressive win at MSG, following it up with a blow out at Philly! Ending 4-4, considering the injuries to major players and the free fall we were in, is all I could ask.

And I miss Nick too....especially his defense against Kevin Durant. He really seemed to slow down Durant as well as anyone in the league. Knowing we were blowing them out, it put a smile on my face seeing him have such a great game. Not just the points, but the 5 assists and 3 steals.

By the way....of course the Spurs won without the Big Three. Pop is probably the best coach in the NBA and has installed a heck of a system. That's why I'm not convinced by all this talk about Parker for MVP. He's impressive, but there's no way he goes to a different team and changes the dynamic the way a guy like........oh, I don't know......Chris Paul can.

Ignore button for what? You want to avoid losing arguments? I trust your super glue because that is what you used to keep your VDN homer glasses on. They're never getting off! So yeah, if you don't want to keep losing arguments, super glue the ignore button, son.

For Young, leaving Los Angeles, particularly after such a brief stay, was difficult.

"I was a little disappointed," Young said of not coming back to the Clippers in the offseason. "But that was my second free agency, so I'd seen a lot. I knew once Jamal Crawford was on the books, he was a vet that had been around the block a couple times.

"It is tough. I've gotten more homesick [this season] because I was in L.A. for most of the whole year [in 2011-12]."

Yep, Pop is the only "elite" coach left standing. The SA organization as a whole is "elite". They always seem to come up with these great late round or 2nd round picks. Their a franchise to try and emulate.

Tbh I think Popovich is more valuable than any single member of the Spurs atm. Most coaches do not have that kind of impact but Popovich does.

Also forget about probably. He is the clear cut best coach by a clear margin. Thibs might be somewhat close but not really because he overplays his players way too much and pushes them to their utmost limit.

Young said his time with the Clippers helped him mature as a player and

made him more than just a scorer.

"They were great teammates. There was a will to win. Especially Memphis, that was big for me. I grew a little bit being on the team," Young said before Monday's game. "Being on the team, they demanded more out of me. I had no choice but to grow up. I'd say that carried over."

Del Negro said the Clippers would've considered re-signing Young had the team not signed Crawford.

I wonder if other teams have something else they can do if the jumpers aren't hot.

The rookie and sophomore Blake would've dunked it straight with his right hand a la Perkins and Gasol. He did not have the left hand before this year. What a deadly extra weapon. Can't quite get the clean dunk with the right hand? No problem, I'll switch to my left hand in the air.
