Default Re: Nuggets game

Listless effort, seems that way most nights, Bosh excluded. Seems it's allways on him to get this team going but you can't play all the minutes he does and still bring that high level of intensity every single game. Jermaine will be o.k he needs time to heal. Remember last year how everyone use to praise Jose for passing the ball upcourt quickly as opposed to T.J allways carrying it up, don't know why, but you don't see that much anymore, hence few fast breaks, little reason to run. Bargs playing pretty good defense this year, so there are some positives, but not to many more i think of. The team seems to just settle for status quo too much, not enough anger and mental toughness out there. We need a couple more players with mean streaks on the roster, opposition teams don't seem seems to be to fearful of our makeup. Can anyone say it better than Brian Burke, we need a certain level of pugnacity, belligerence and testosterone!

please dont say bosh excluded, because sometimes i felt boshh was the problemm on defense letting Nene get all fired upp..
it was a bad game overall, all teams have them...
lets just hope the raptors pull it together soon

It honestly went wrong when Mitch started Bagrs on Melo.

No way in hell he could guard Melo, foul trouble was early for Bargs.
Billups was just the heart and soul of the team, when we were sneaking ino n the 19 pt lead, Billups came in and stretched it..

pathetic game, we need that trade B.C is planning already.. this isn't working..
