Petrie doesn't like Eric Musselhead... Honestly Muss is probably gone at the end of the season if things don't improve significantly, and you can quote me on this... Muss has kinda alienated some players, he's annoyed Martin with Kevin's inconsistent playing time, the Maloofs are probably wondering why the young players who have been impressive don't get more time. I don't remember where it was but they did some radio interviews over the ASB and in one of them they basically said "the vets besides Ron have been dissapointing and they young guys have been impressive". So yeah, I think Muss is probably gone after this year. Dude should change his last name to Hustleman! because he just hustled the Maloofs for 7 million dollars.(yeah I realized that sounded dumb but it's the truth)
I hope Petrie gets something done at the deadline or before. I just want to see him send Bibby and Artest and some of our other vets packing. We need a good draft pick, some cap space, some young players, etc.
I'm starting to think that Petrie is so full of himself that he actually believes this is a well assembled team. So the more he blames Mussellman the more he deflects the blame for putting together this worthless group of idiots.
muss is gone at the end of the season even if they start winning, imo. he's just not the right guy.
I agree, he's not the right guy. But you have to have the pieces to succeed, they haven't given him the pieces. You can't play defensive ball without defensive players. Petrie doesn't know how to assemble a defensive squad which is why him and Adelman were so successful. If the maloofs wanted to change direction and be a defensive squad then they need to clean house. Players and staff. Otherwise they should have left it alone and let things be the way they were. If we're going for defense in the future then get us a GM that knows how to build a defensive team.
