Felton and Diaw were the downfall of this team... We pretty much depended on them all season long and that's why we were so inconsistent. If Felton or Diaw played above their average level, we won, if they played at their expected level we lost.
We're expecting too much out of them.
I felt bad for Felton looking at him at the end of the game. It was like the cameramen were purposely focusing on his face, like they knew it was all his fault lol.
I want to say bring him back b/c he's such a good guy, but it's hard to say that now. I know he'll be a lot cheaper to bring back after this series, but at this point, it does feel like the same situation that we had with Jake and the Panthers/John Fox. If we bring him back, we're holding DJ back and in turn, holding our whole team back, b/c I don't know how we would bring him back and LB sits him behind DJ. LB won't do it. So it may be best to just cut ties.
We may have won this series with DJ as the full time starter, or if we had TJ Ford. Which is pretty sad.
I'm mad at Jack, as he does turn the ball over at dumb times. But, a lot of that has to do with him creating his own shot b/c he doesn't have a PG/Ballhandler to get him easier shots, so he forces things. I don't hold the tech's against him either b/c I honestly just think his reputation is bigger than he is and the refs are waiting with the whistle in their mouth for him to say something.
Hendo, Derrick Brown and Tyrus need to get a whole lot more minutes next season. We have to try to move a big and Boris in a trade for a legit PG or post-scoring center. But I think PG is the biggest priority b/c you've seen what Chandler can do with a REAL PG in Paul. Changes have to be made through trades and some signings this offseason considering we don't have any picks in the draft.
