i mean... i know people like to hold petty drudges and all, but when it turns in to their personal belief systems, you know they got it bad.
these are generally the same knuckleheads who call kidd a wife-beater and give him hell for calling out sick once with a migraine... when he's with another team. now that he's back with the nets, it's all forgotten, boy.
I love the site, probably my go to Nets site (sorry ISH) but some of the posters give me a headache sometimes. Yesterdays preseason game for example, everyone was yelling for Reggie Evans to get benched for no reason. Reggie was playing like his usual self, being energetic and grabbing boards, certainly not playing better then usual but isn't doing anything wrong. They also wanted Mirza to get PT, which I certainly understand because I wanted to see Mirza play too but it is a preseason game after all and everyone will get their turn. I don't know why I just vented on ND on ISH lol.
As for L Frank, I agree. Franks basically been the head coach in training camp as Jason is still learning the ropes. We'll be fine come opening night.
