Isiah using the injuries as an excuse? Who woulda thunk it? It's not like he usually makes excuses like, "They need time to gell." What a phony! Is anybody cutting the Heat any slack for Shaq and Wade being out for so much of the season? Is anybody cutting the Nets any slack for Kristic and Jefferson being out for so much of the season? Is anybody cutting the Rockets any slack for Yao being out for so much of the season?

According to Dolan, this is the team he wants, and this is the team the fans want. I'm sure Laden wishes the fans wanted so little out of far and away the most expensive team in the league when he was the GM.

This is not what this fan wants, so I'll ignore the team until this fool and his Starbury are out of town, whenever that is.
