I'm sick of Fizdale already...this season should be about developing the young guys, not giving more minutes to 2nd & 3rd tier cats who'll be gone by the trading deadline.


But it's not all on Fizdale...he's saddled with a poorly contructed roster, thanks to Mills and Perry...Dumb and Dumber.

You've been rightly beating this player development drum, uptown. I haven't been following the season closely yet, but Fiz is deluding himself if he thinks he's in "win now" mode.

Siakim was on fire last night, but I fear the Raptors could be in trouble. Ibaka has a sprained ankle and Lowry a small fracture in his thumb AND we're up against the Lakers and Clippers next. Could be tense.

Raptors beat the Lakers last night without Ibaka and Lowry. Wow!! I hope they can do it again tonight.

I didn't see the game but depth is a concern for LAL.

Plus, Vanvleet went off. Happens all the time -- an ordinary player playing extraordinary against the Lakers.

LOL @ Mills (Dolan's butt-boy) and Perry trying to make Fizdale the fall guy. Fiz hasn't been perfect, but he didn't put this roster together....a roster with 2nd/3rd tier players, too many forwards, no true PG and Julius Randle as the centerpiece on offense. Are you kidding me?????????

To paraphrase a Parcells analogy, Fiz has been making meals with Mills' and Dolan's groceries.

Steve Mills is shifting blame and trying to cover his ass....that's how things are run at MSG, but it might not work this time.
