As of now I might be a bit over enthusiastic but we're looking like a Basketball team.

This is exactly why Clifford has to go. This roster, (and last year's, and the year before) are capable of great basketball.

We fire the guy who builds it, but commit to the guy who can't consistently win with it.

Hornets apparently are intrigued by winning the tie-breaker with Detroit.

Oh my... and we started so well. There goes my hope to see some good minutes for Monk on Co.
What happens to our lovely team ball?

I agree so much with this. Cho built a really talented team.... Cliff just doesn't know how to use it.

4 in a row, longest streak this year. Caught some of the first half, they really shared the ball well and Frank is playing really well. Amazing how much better we are when he plays well.

Cliff said 3 point shooting and shooting in general has been the problem. They have shot well out of the break, but is it a trend or a change?

Don't want to deflect legit criticism away from coach, but do want to throw out there that right before all-star was the first time this season everybody was healthy.

Your argument is one that I used often myself in defense of Clifford but there's a reality that this particular roster, even with men down, is still the best roster we have fielded since the rebirth of the franchise.  How you cannot play winning basketball consistently with 9/10ths of this roster is mind boggling to me.  I feel we are benefitting right now by the fact Dwight got a good rest in the break.  Clifford plays him way too many minutes and he goes from a positive part on the floor to a negative (stops blocking out, stops setting screens, doesn't bother even tilting toward closing out on a 3p shooter).  Those things happen because he's being played the same number of minutes as his age.  So I worry that if Clifford doesn't read the tea leaves, we'll have a very good 10 games out of the shoot here but then be right back in the stink the last 15.

Yeah, I'm on the fence. But the things I consider are that Batum's game is based on the whole team being on the same page. When you have so many guys missing time, especially Cody, I think it makes it hard to gel. Again, judge him as you will.

The difference in how they were playing before and after, you'd think Cho was the coach.  Steve's coaching for his job but how's that for a vote of confidence.
