I think it's because Hollins and the players hadn't experienced a failure.
Sure, but had they really experienced any serious success? The entire support for the Griz being a top-flight team comes the 2010-11 season in which it played well down the stretch, beat a Spurs team that, IIRC, matched up poorly with Memphis and then took OKC to seven games in the semis. That's it.
The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors have engaged in exploratory trade discussions on a deal that would swap the Bulls' Carlos Boozer for the Raptors' Andrea Bargnani, according to sources familiar with the discussions.
K.C Johnson ?@KCJHoop
Told Bulls initiated. And unlikely. RT @ESPNSteinLine: Sources say Bulls, Raptors have had talks on trade featuring Boozer, Bargnani.
Not sure how I feel about it either, though.
Would the Raptors just amnesty Boozer then?
WTF does Toronto want with Boozer then, I have no idea.
The Hollins reaction/MEM tailspin since Hollinger arrived is reminding me, in ways, of Depo and the Dodgers. At least on a superficial level.
It has been kind of interesting though to see the reverse homerism that's been happening this season; the non Laker fans on this site have been a lot more optomistic about LA's chances of making a low seed playoff push.
As tonight's game showed, it's not reverse homerism, it's just reality.
Its also the kind of thing that makes me think that Duncan and Garnett would get along on the same team.
what are the best basketball podcasts?
I do not see why the Raptors would want Boozer, either. Boozer is a name, but he is a terrible return on investment, and unilke Gay, there is no chance that he magically becomes more producitve outside of that system (nor is he young).
My favorite is easily The Basketball Jones. They are stats friendly, knowledgable, entertaining, and all clearly seem to love watching and talking about the NBA.
OTOH, I have a theory (can't prove it) that teams often do well for a short period of time after a star goes down. I think other guys get excited by getting more opportunities, coaches make adjustments, opposing teams don't have time to gameplan.
I don't buy any of the "Are the Celtics better off without Rondo?" talk
No, but I think it is fair to talk about how high-leverage a guy is to a team, given the rest of the team's skillsets.
This theory needs a name! :)
Lakers getting blasted in Charlotte.
LAKERS WIN! LAKERS WIN! OH MY GOD THE LAKERS WIN!
STATS gave Grantland a bunch of data, and Zach Lowe wrote it up.
That’s the thing about Durant: Scroll through these categories one by one, and you'll say to yourself, “He should be doing this particular thing more often!” Then you realize you’ve said that for every category — drives, post-ups, elbow touches — and you just shake your head.
Kobe is 55th
I also think clutch does as well.
rr - Is there something about Garnett's personality that prevents team-building? I haven't heard a rep for alienating teammates or burning out coaches, and he was certainly the face of Boston coming together in their championship season. "Team cohesiveness" credit is hard to separate between Popovich and Duncan, too.

I guess casual fans may not use bb-ref ELO rater, and the advanced stats presented there probably work in Garnett's favor. Here's the top 20, Garnett is 10th. Duncan is 7th, Kobe is 55th. Russell is probably way underrated at 20 though.
DEN runs their winning streak to 9 in a row and are now just 1.5 GB of LAC for the 3-seed.
I don't know if this means anything, other than just that Garnett is, as everyone knows, a great, great player, but: "Garnett is the only player ever with at least 25,000 career points, 10,000 rebounds, 5,000 assists, 1,500 blocks and 1,500 steals."
