A buddy of mine is a Bullets fan stranded in Disneyland. He went to the game last night, and was making many of the observations we have. The funny part was how hard I tried to explain to him that Wall is good even though he was seeing some terrible stuff live in person. He is a knowledgeable sports fan and experienced at the game of basketball, so enjoy our text conversation....(I left the typos for effect)
Buddy: Wish Len Elmore was doing color on this MD game instead of Bobby Knight. A buddy of mine threw me some tix to tonight's Bullets game ... I'll gonna heckle Blantche if I can get close enough.
Me: Haha nice. Tell him to eat more donuts.
Buddy: They just don't play together...a very greedy and young team, where is the coaching? Playground rules is what I'm seeing.
Me: You nailed it. They don't hear coaching.
Buddy: Need to hire a coach for $mil..pay a coach to stick his neck out and coach em up...this is how JV Magruder played circa 1991.
Buddy: Wall is being wasted...I'm beginning to think he is a street baller, not a pro.
Me: You don't think three guys who coached the Twolves are good?? Wall will be fine.
Buddy: This is the essence of why I hated (name omitted) so much...greedy. I have doubts w/Wall. 4 horseman on dat.
Me: Where are you sitting?
Buddy: Sec 102 behind Magic. Nice tix. Who the fuck coaches this crew?...it's atrocious.
Me: They are immune to coaching. Wall 1-10???
Buddy: I don't like him. Put this on my record.
Me: Dude he's having a bad game.
Buddy: The shot selection is turrible.
Me: He is a terrible shooter. But fast and long. Can throw it down and play d when he puts his mind to it.
Buddy: 5 guys aint fast food...it's a basketball team...I see no team, just fat
Me: Did u know they are like 2-12? Flip insisted on coaching them like a veteran team. They need to learn how to run sets and set screens. They need bobby knight to throw a chair at them. Nick Young is a douche.
Buddy: 3 on the lines tonight
Me: Weak as hell
Buddy: See ya in a few weeks bro...
Me: Can't believe we are in this. You should be telling me how much the Magic sucks.
