Conspiracy theory

Unread postby Spin » Wed May 12, 2010 11:04 am

There's more and more talk of a mutiny against Coach Brown.

Shaq doesn't play the fourth period in game 4.
During the regular season, Brown was throttled by the fans and the players for not playing Z during the streak. Last night Z finally gets into the series, blocks a shot that goes out of bounds, and the crowd goes wild. Brown yanks Z and LeBron out of the game. That was the last time the Cavs led. Apparently after that is when LBJ started standing around, not getting in the game.

Probably just a coincidence, but there are more and more people talking about it.

That would be like saying LBJ is tanking it so the Cavaliers won't play the Lakers in the NBA Finals as he wouldn't want to ruffle the feathers of the team he wants to actually play for (the Lakers). Hey, wait a minute....................... :thud:
"It's all about winning for me, and I think the Cavs are committed to doing that," he said. "But at the same time I've given myself options to this point, and like I said before, me and my team, we have a game plan that we're going to execute, and we'll see what we get."

Shit.

I though this thread was about how the Illuminati held secret meeting to make sure Akron sports gets held down and never gets the respect it deserves.

Brown is just not a smart coach period. He doesn't know how to sit a player when he's cold, or keep a player in who's hot. "Z" is actually a better overall center than Shaq. What Shaq brings is physicality, but he can't hit anything other than a dunk or layup. "Z" is the better center to play in this series. Same goes with Mo Williams. I'd have sat Williams long ago. Screw egos. Play who's hot. As stubborn as Brown is, I wouldn't be surprised at all if he didn't pull "Z" for showing him up. Brown seems to have some sort of grudge against "Z".

Speaking of which, why won't Brown design an offense around Z shooting 3's? Would be the most innovative, devastating attack ever.

Plus I heard he was a PG growing up, until he grew to 7'3".

People talk about Pippen and LeBron as point forwards.

Well, prepare to have your mind BLOWN.

e0y, you were right, this guy is amazing.

Shaq was fucking 7/11 for 21 points and 4 blocks last night. Z is the overall better center? Alright man, Brown probably doesnt play him because he has a thing against Lithuainians.

How did Z show up Brown? by playing decently? Which would then make Mike Brown look bad because he didnt play him earlier? So Brown pulled him becuase he was playing too well? Is that seriously what you are implying?

The reason it seemed like Lebron didn't show up last night is because he didn't. That wasn't LBJ on the court last night. It was a weather balloon. The real Lebron was reportedly in NJ looking at real estate.

How about I just shut the hell up.....as I am just pissed right now. What I meant by "Z" being the better overall center is he has a much wider and varied skill set, and Shaq has really not shown us much against the Celtics other than the other night. Had Brown maybe mixed in "Z" into the rotation, maybe Shaq actually plays better too, because his legs are a bit fresher, and we have another body in the mix to wear down their centers. And let's not get personal about this. Mmmkay.

No response on Z showing up Mike Brown about playing too well? Mike showed him by yanking his ass right out of that game. When Mike Brown puts you in to a game he expects you to play well... just not too well.

Umm...I'm on topic. Isn't this thread dealing with some kind of conspiracy theory involving "Z" and Mike Browns apparent dislike of him? Isn't it about what happened to the team after Brown pulled "Z" and LeBron out of the game after they were getting on a bit of a roll?

U don't know me...so don't judge me like that.

Be careful Ziner, if you actually dialogue w/ the troll he'll retreat into a never-ending series of "well this what I really meant" slight alterations to his take so that he also never has to admit that he isjust a giant troll. Cat's mobile home isn't enough to entertain him so he turns to message board attention whoring for his kicks.

Guy's a hindrance on the gene pool in all reality.

I told you after the last loss he'd be back as soon as we lost another one to pick and random thread and make it all about what Joe Dirt wants it to be about.

The players tuning out of Mike Brown is the first thing that popped into my head after last nights game.

Regardless if Lebron stays or goes, I think one thing is for certain: Mike Brown is gone if he doesn't win an NBA Title this year.

I don't disagree at all but why cut your nose to spite your face?

If a whole NBA team wants a coach gone, he's gone. Why lose to make this happen?

A "much wide and varied skill set" ???

You mean. he can shoot 40% from 18 feet? Because a 75 year old Shaq still does EVERYTHING else better, you know, play the post, rebound, move, defend....all that shit.

Z blows. He Blows. So by Mike Brown NOT using him more, well, at least he can say he ain't the stupidest GD guy in the world, because you'd have to be to play him more.

So the Cavs are collectively mortaging a championship because they don't like some of Mike Brown's coaching decisions.... go ahead and tell any of those people that are "talking about it" that they're pretty much morons.
