    I hope Jordan (and the rest of his teammates) understands

    First off...great effort from the guys eligible. They really fought hard tonight. If Railey isn't out, IMO we win this game. This would have been a huge win, and IMO, we were 1 very important body short.

    Who knows. Maybe Railey plays a bad game tonight and we lose by more. Maybe he goes off for 15 and we win by 10.

    Look forward to getting him back on the court this week.

    Yeah, I am sure some of our guys could have used an extra breather, but I can't complain about the effort out of anyone tonight.

    Nobody on this eight man team should be out at three in the morning during the basketball season. They can do that later.

    JVB would not have had three fouls in the first half. We needed another offensive option at the end of the game.

    I don't care if he scores a point. JVB would not have fouled out with 4 minutes left if he was able to play.

    Jordan's decision definitely hurt the team.
    It's not the sole reason we lost, but he definitely hurt the team with that decision. I hope he learns a valuable lesson from this episode.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    JVB has been in foul trouble in games that Jordan played.

    Again, you do not know if Jordan would have had a positive or negative influence on the game. I'd like to think he would have helped - but turnovers, foul trouble, poor offensive possessions, getting beat on the boards (notably in the first half) and SC being hurt is what did us in tonight.

    Fact is, we were up 4 points late and let it go away. Fact is we had the ball in a tie game with 6 seconds left and not only found a way to lose - but did it in regulation.

    Would have been nice to have another player over 6-6 in that game.

    Erik, you are exactly right. My only aim here is to point out how valuable everyone is, and that everyone has a very important role on this team.

    This game. Ejim and Godfrey were tired. Eric McKnight should have came in even for a couple mins he could have helped wear down their big men.

    Would have been nice if Jordan had just lofted the pass into the corner of the end zon--er, never mind.
