    I worked in a warehouse for a year. I can tell you an AAU weekend required more energy than a work week. At least for me.

    Does anyone know the record for lowest combined score for a game in the post-shot clock era?

    Cousins looks absolutely exhausted.

    That's fair enough on an individual level. I also did warehouse work for about a year, and I can tell you I personally would rather swap for the NBA life, especially in this modern era where it's less physically damaging than ever and they're cutting back to backs down. I remember doing 13 straight 10 hour days at the warehouse and I felt like death.

    You don't have to like it but it is the human condition in action. What is unrealistic is to expect that level of stress on any body, in any physical field, and expect them to perform at the same level. It is true for humans employed in the NBA and it is true for humans employed at FoxConn. What you are also not accounting for is the disruption of traveling. It is one thing to work a long shift back to back, it is another to have to hop on a plane, disrupt your sleep patterns, get jet lagged, and than be tired for your shift. It is an additional level of wear on a person.


    Thats not to say there aren't things you can do as a person and as an organization to help overcome and compensate for that stuff, like having a better roster so the wear and tear on back to backs are not as great on your stars, having the chemistry on the squad be at its peak like a well oiled machine, and having coaches that manage the players and those situations as best as possible. All things I think the Pelicans lack.

    No one is saying it as an excuse. It's a reason. Doesn't mean we shouldn't be playing with energy.

    Just because some of our guys are exhausted doesn't mean we should be playing lazy.

    That's what I'm saying, although you have phrased it better. Yes it's understandable, we get that you're tired, and it definitely sucks, but you have to find something in there and run with it like the rest of the world does.

    I'm going to guess you aren't a 7ft tall 250 pound man trying to do that.

    Might need to reduce Cousins minutes a bit on back to backs

    Yeah. That extra 10 inches and 20+ pounds is a lot of extra tear on the body. Even if doing the same amount of work.

    That would be nice, but that's where the extreme 2-man gang nature of this team becomes a major issue. The Big 2 can't rest, and they can't miss games, or you almost can't win. People need to step up to get the workload within reasonable limits for the top guys.

    No doubt, like I said I'm not saying they're not justified in being exhausted. Just got to dig deep, and make something happen. Especially for the guys who didn't really explode last game.

    As a side note, I found the record: apparently the Bulls played the Heat on April 10th 1999, and only scored 49 points total. Kornel David had a team high 13 points.

    I was being sarcastic.

    I think the players and Gentry get a pass on fatigue and how many minutes AD and Boogie played the night before while the team is recovering.

    Bulls with the goaltend, then the over and back, Bulls just getting away with anything

  19. #69
    Demps is on the hot seat, he needs to make a move before fatigue causes another injury
