Ira, all your columns are the same lame quotes which say little to nothing about what is going on with the team. This is the third piece on the injuries and conditioning, with the same three quotes from the players. It is rather apparent that had the players been in South Florida, they could have sought treatment, BUT WHY DIDN"T THEY? If RIley knew Smush was hurt, WHY DIDN"T HE DEMAND that Smush get to Florida for treatment? or for Walker? If you can't get to the WHY, then you don't deserve your job anymore than these lame ducks do.

Nap time? Wow. Was this Shaq's idea?

Oops. I failed to read paragraph 3- turns out, it WAS Shaq's idea.

Since the average NBA player parties 'til 3:00 AM, it makes sense that they would want an afternoon siesta to get charged up for the next session of drinks and dancers. What I don't understand is why a coach would agree to that. Why would you schedule sleep sessions for a team that already seems to lack intensity and work ethic? Wouldn't sleep DEPRIVATION be more in order?
