0-10 now, geez. We truly are THE disappointment of the year.


Ehh, fans in Denver are probably too laid back though... must be the marijuana. :D Granted, Bronco fans did get a little hopped up on the win juice.

Now fans in Philly? Those guys are pretty insufferable complainers on general principle - even when their team is winning.

Same with Jersey too IMO. Though I've only had to deal with Nets fans so maybe the others are fine.

I still would fire me, even when 6 losses out of our 0-10 streak were in single digits. Well, waiting for next year. This one is just about playing to an uggly end with some decency.

Yep, mine ticked up too. So, in theory, if a team did everything it could to be cohesive, you could see two upticks within a season? I'll have to watch a bit closer.

Still great after the Buyer trade so that's a nice bonus i wasn't expecting.

Also, I think this FBB3 sim has gained sentience and is monitoring the forums. It's only a matter of time before it gains access to the nuclear launch codes.

How else could it be that a much beleaguered Storm team (which has recently taken heat for not only their record but a deal for Daren Keyes) goes into Boston and hangs an L on the Buzzards with the affore mentioned Keyes going for 29 pts (10-16 from the floor, 4-5 from three and 506 from the line), 5 reb, 3 ast, with 2 blk even. I mean he'd been struggling but it has to be this game where he regresses back to the average and dumps in a season high? I can't even...

I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing terminators coming for me soon.

Close ones. Narrow loss against Coyotes, narrow win over Stallions that ended an 0-11 streak. But more important, there's some improvement in the way the team plays. Brawner did not shoot as much as before and that did him good, Malone still is hitting better than his reputation suggests and Fore went a combined 31.0 ppg. If this continues, I can live with the losses that will keep coming. I just had the feeling that this time we did not get outplayed completely like some times before. But it was just a two game set...

1-1 without Buyer, including a win on the road in Portland, where Stanley Bobo (22 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists in 36 minutes) carried us, after there were five fouls each from Graves (in 38 minutes), Newton (15 minutes), and Bruder (14 minutes). I'm not expecting to be any better, but I am excited to see how we play with all the new faces, and increased minutes for the young guys during this last stretch.
