Lets keep the fire burning Volume 1

Since everybody is putting out heat, i might as well put out more heat. I need to be the hottest, my ego and swag demand it. Now without further waiting let me take you down heartbreak road to the TEAMS THAT FAILED THE MOST THIS SEASON.

Failure is a funny word. Well, actually, their is nothing at all funny about it. But this season, expectations throughout the NBA were set abnormally high, and lots of teams simply did not achieve to the level they were suppose to. Da Cat is about to break down who HE THINKS are the biggest failures of this season. This can range from coaches to teams to players. In the words of Marvin Gaye 'LETS GET IT ON'.


The Los Angeles Clippers and Baron Davis - What Elton Brand did to B Diddy was the scam of the century. He conviced Baron to go to L.A. and leave his great gig in G-State behind. Then Elton dipsetted to Philly, and Baron was stuck with coaching extrodinare Mike 'Big Dun' Dunleavy (well not really extrodinare, actually their are several ASSISTANTS better suited to be coaching then him). Add the Elgin Baylor 'they are running a plantation style system' assertion, and the fact that it is the Clippers, and you have your current situation.

The Boston Celtics - I have already said this: THEIR GOAL WAS TO REPEAT. It was simply stated at the begining of the year, that was the plan, win again. They are not going to, and them struggling against the Bulls is proof of that. No matter if they win or lose the series, they will be at home watching the Cavs play either the Lakers or Nuggets when the NBA Finals role around.

The San Antonio Spurs - Just read the Celtics blurb and replace REPEAT with WIN ANOTHER BANNER, and you got the reasoning to exactly why this season was a fail. Same story, different book.

Terry Porter - The funny thing about this one, is that Terry DID NOT FAIL. He was brought in to turn Phoniex into a half-court team, which he did, under the orders of Steve Kerr. Terry is a 'Half Court offense based' coach, and that is what Steve wanted. He was simply out of place, as the leaders of the team all didnt buy into his system (I'M LOOKING AT YOU STEVE NASH. EVERYONE RIPS A.I FOR DISSING MICHEAL CURRY'S WAYS, BUT YOU GOT TERRY FIRED). Basically, to speak in metaphors, Terry was the shemale the parents of a lesbian brought home to make the lesbian turn straight. Sure it looks like a women, but no matter what it is not what the lesbian is naturally attracted to. You cannot change the offensive styling of the Phoneix Suns just like you cannot change sexual orrinetation. You can try and hide it, but in the end it will come out (as it did under Gentry).

The Charlotte BETCATS - I am not a man of double standards. This season was all about making the playoffs. Although we did have the best season in franchise history, we didnt get to have the honors of being swept by the Cavs, thus making our season not one of living up to standards set by the organization. This is only a minimal fail though, because like i already said we are a young team who had their best season yet, so yeah....

Greg Oden - I thought he was going to be good when healthy, but health doesnt matter. When you average a awe inspiring 10.6 fouls for 48 minutes, it is pretty hard to be effective. Sorry G.O but you are a old looking motha fucka that plays like one too.

The Detroit Pistons - Well first of all, i really really do not want to bash them. The 'lets slap the Pistons' horse has been spanked more than a porn star in a fetish film. All that needs to be said is that rebuilding mode is a real bitch.

The Toronto Raptors - The pharse 'underachivers' gets thrown around a lot, but this bunch personifies it. You make the playoffs last season, you get rid of the mouthy Point Guard that is supposivly a cancer to your team and get a upgrade at Center in return (TJ Ford for J.O), and you have Chris Bosh, yet your team still manages to miss the playoffs, have a undevolped former #1 picked that is still regarded as a 'potential player', end up with Shawn Marion on your team, and you miss the playoffs. If only the NBA came with a EDIT UNDO button...


Feel free to add more fails, but that is my list.

totally agree with you BET, especially about that terry porter situation.

and being a diehard blazer fan, I have to defend GO. If he could figure out how to play defense without fouling, he can be that defensive stopper that he was expected to be. But anyone who says he can average 20+ points is crzy, he could maybe get 15, but he will never be an offensive force like Shaq or Dwight Howard. If he can just stop fouling, he can be one of the best defensive players in the L.

Collin said...

oh yeah, and Don Nelson is a failure too, but he was a failure last year too, and will still be one next year.

when I think of failure, the Knicks and the Clippers come to mind immediately. I understand why you didn't write anything about Newe York though, that would have taken way too long to list their issues.

Hopefully, the Cats can make the playoffs next season. I expect that they will have a good season next year.

Collin said...

and the Kings, they are just depressing.

DAMN Maloofs!!!

Collin said...

is this really my fourth comment already?

you think Oden looks old, how about Sam young on Pittsburgh, he looks like he is 70 or somethin

BET said...

Kings - i expected it, and they have a great group of diehard fans

Knicks - my views on this would be like a rasta writting about weed. TMI.

Don Nelson - Crazy, not a failure, just crazy

BET said...

seeing that you are a Blazers fan, how good do you think a Brandon Roy - Kevin Durant tandem would have been. I think about 4 championships is a reasonable estimate. So much for the days when people thought the Blazers pwned everyone else in the draft....

Hursty said...

Rudy Fernandez is going to be a very good player in two or three years time. I've (unfortunately) seen enough of him this series to figure that out.
The Jazz in general were disappointing. They never got a rythm going for the season, and it showed in the playoffs.

Collin said...

@Hursty

one of the reasons the jazz never got a rythm going is because of their injury problems. they would have been better if they weren't injured.

the baconator said...

One of the biggest fails: Tracy McGrady. Did anyone else, except maybe Greg Oden, disappoint their team any more?

BET said...

to add to the list - this article. Damm, almost nobody commented....

Jameyb said...

Good stuff, but you omitted 1 very important word from your paragraph(s) on the Spurs and Celtics: injuries.

Jameyb said...

btw..too early to dispell Oden-NBAer's don't peak until 26 or 27. Wayyy too soon to pass judgement on him.

Hursty said...

Yeh but every team had injuries. So that excuse doesn't count really.
@bacon- he was injured prior to the season. It was a recurring thing.
