The banner came on the screen - $299 Season Tickets. That's what I have. I was enjoying this game. The Cavs are a very flawed team with a very good player. Not great. Not yet. But very good.
The Nets have been playing well. Up by 4 at the half. Last 2 minutes is a wash. Fine. Middle of the third now and the Nets are up 14. I call the kids into the room.
Hey guys, have you had fun with us having season tix? Yeah! they both say in unison. Do you think I should get them for next year?
Only one of them has an objection - the older one says "it's a long commute...". I'm surprised that the younger one hasn't said "They stink!" the way he has been saying quite a bit lately. So should I guys? Yeah!
"But they need to get a new coach!" the younger one opines.
Granted, he reflects what I say, since he's 10....
Cavs begin to whittle away, but with 2 minutes left in the third, the nnets are up by 9. Nine. N-I-N-E.
With 49 seconds left in the qtr, the score is TIED. THEN AND ONLY THEN DOES BRAIN BOY CALL TIME OUT.
He does NOT know how to in game coach. A breeze turns into a rout. IN ONE MINUTE.
Right at the moment its six minutes into the quarter. SIX MINUTES. The Nets have scored exactly 3 points. THREE. And are now down by 8, a 24-5 run. 24-5!!!!!!!!!!!!
AND THIS JERK HAS NOT CALLED A TIME OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HEY ROD - THIS TEAM HAS NO HOPE WITH THIS JERK AS ITS COACH!!!!!!!!!!!
New graphic - Second chance points 11-11. It had been 11-3 Nets.
The Nets are now down 10 with 5:25 left to play. Time out. I don't know who called it but for the Nets it's WAY TOO LATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU CAN'T EXPECT A STRUGGLING TEAM TO MAKE UP A 10 POINT DEFICIT WITH 5:25 LEFT IN THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!
He does EVERYTHING to undermine the confidence of this team. He does NOTHING to help it.
He is a complete in-game failure, a lost soul, a dufus, a jerk.
(Another graphic splashed across the screen - the Nets are shooting 8% in the 4th... Why do the Nets have timeouts left? Why aren't other players out there?? Nevermind, the Nets are down 14 now and just gave the Cavs their second straight old fashioned 3 point play. There's 3:40 left. God, jerk, aren't you tired of this? When are you gonna figure out it's YOU, not "we" - YOU YOU YOU YOU YOU YOU.)
Another graphic - the Nets are shooting, right now, with less than 2 minutes to go, 1-15. ONE FOR FIFTEEN. Do you thing maybe their confidence is shot? They're now down by 17, as another graphic shows they've missed their last 17 shots.
AND FRANK CALLS TIMEOUT! CAN YOU EFFING BELIEVE IT??????
WHAT GAME IS THIS BUFFOON WATCHING???????????????????
Final - 104-83, a 21 point loss. It was once 67-53. Since that point they were outscored 51-16. FIFTY FREAKING ONE TO SIXTEEN.
There is no way, NO EFFING WAY, this dunce of a supposed coach should be allowed even to finish the season.
FIRE HIM NOW!
