Part of being a professional also is being a coach that does not shuffle players in and out like someone running a tryout for an AAU junior team. Come on, Rambis, find your men and then work them hard. You can't hold on to a professional team if the guys you are coaching don't feel like professionals. Mr. Rambis is starting to look like a cargo cult version of Mr. Jackson -- creating a rudimentary form that is supposed to somehow "channel" the power of the original. God, I hope he figures it out. They've got an interesting team. The quickest way to lose it is to play mind games, and that seems to be one of the most favored tricks in Mr. Rambis' bag.

Agreed, "mind games" can destroy both a player and a team, but disagree that we need to pick 5-8 players and go with them. No one on this team should sit night after night, and no one should play more than 30 minutes, our strength is having young talent, and finding a way for them to bring energy and wear down the opposition. Don't know what happened to make everything fall apart against another young team, but will stick with this coach and these players. go wolves.

At least there WAS soul searching.

Also, Beasley and Love really seem to care about getting better. That's a great sign.
