You Nate to See It


Recommended Posts

Haha, was just coming to post "Dogg, Nate!" or something.

I bet the Pacers wanna switch nameplates back to the real Nate then act like nothing ever changed.

Be lookin at B-jerk-gren like, "Uh, and who are you?"

I don't know if bad Nate is much of a coach but this is why we need to stick with our Nate.   It's a roll of the dice otherwise.

But Indy has to be real and admit that the team isn't that great.

I'm on the sign Nate McMillian train asap.  His playoff record is bad beacause he coached up mediocre teams to the 4th or 5th seeds.  Those teams didn't have top end talent or the talent was injured.  

I'm excited to see what he can do with this young Hawks squad.  Roomers are circulating that Portland may be interested in him if Stotts is fired.

And, just in case folks thought I wasn't bitter, I'd like the record to reflect that B'jerk'gren is from the Nic(k) Nurse 'tree (Nursery?).

All folks kept telling me is they want a Nic(k) Nurse guy.  Well, how ya' like 'em now?  And the original ain't doin' so hot in Tampa either.  Perhaps a vet-laden, playoff experienced team joined by a Finals MVP did just a lil' bit to make him/them seem a lot better than they actually are/were.

But I'm not bitter.....

Thanks for sharing.  That'd be a hard sell if I was that fanbase.  I'm sure McMillan would do a good job.  Just hard to sell that to a fanbase that probably turned on him years ago.

Haha, you're probably right.  I was just pondering how many of us even remember Stotts being our HC.

They're saying a Pacers player asked to be traded the day B-jerk-gren was hired?!

ETA: The player was TJ Warren who opted to have surgery rather than play for B-jerk.

Yiiiikes.  Hope we come out with a professional effort vs them.  No eggscuse for losing to that team(sic).
