You have no ability to understand premise and logic. That is why you had to bring up the age of basketball. The premise worked regardless of any age, but you fail to understand that. One needs not twist your words, as you are clearly wrapped up in your self intelligence. I don't hype the players anywhere near what you imply, but I also don't like you defend the abysmal display that has been put up in two seasons, none of which is defensible despite your claims of poor talent.

I don't need to demonize you as you are clearly a bold faced apologist with little ability to take it to the staff unless it is a done deal. You seem to forget it is 11 wins in two seasons and with experienced players the first year. I am willing to cut him some slack for the coming year but refuse to accept you predetermined logic for failure. Like it or not that is the picture you paint and you try to structure it as the coach will not be responsible for it. Impediments start with recognizing talent and I think John has done that. However he has not shown he knows what to do with what he has. In your logic, he canít bring in talent. That is an absurd position and one you constantly take as you attempt to blame the school, the city, the fans/ Lack of, and the facilities. In the end, why do you even care as you premise is that they can never do it. And all of this around climbing to double digit wins, not winning the league. Wonder how many others see the stupidity of your position.

To see all in either black or white.

You certainly can provide sound logic....so long as it starts with a mischaracterization of my position.

It's not a case of never doing it. It is a case of realistically understanding the landscape before you begin to make repair. We all wish to dream the dream, unfortunately a cold dose of reality sometimes forces us to paint with more than one color.

I understand your motto is "Paralysis by Analysis" as you attempt to make things more complicated than they are and avoid staying within any premise broadening it to fit your need. Again we are talking about you feeling that we actually have poor talent, of which we will now have for virtually all of John's five year run, and two consecutive single digit seasons. Really wonder what your standards are or what you need to question performance. But stay cool, hurricane season is coming and you just might have another reason to defend the staff. Mind you all of this acknowledging the staff has a chance to right themselves, but in your analytical glory you just canít see how they could be at the center of the problems the team has seen so far. As I have said, a classic example of an apologist.

Only for some who are close-minded.

If it suits, paint me as the apolgist you hope to create. Manufacture whatever premise you wish; I'm sure it will fit the outcome you've chosen for us.

that you actually would have a firm premise. For you coming to a conclusion with available input is considered closed minded. One must wonder what they would find in that open minded approach you think you have. One need not manufacture your shifting premise tendencies and inability to ever come to a conclusion of substance without being hit in the head facts after the fact.
