I think players and managers who only play at clubs with virtually unlimited resources are lacking a bit of confidence in their own ability and not sure much could change my mind on that.
OK what does that have to do with Pep always taking the easiest job to be successful in.

Like.. you said that it's hard to judge him because he goes to clubs with unlimited resources and I agreed and said the best managers and players would be easier to judge if they backed their ability and went to smaller clubs and made them better.

Awesome indeed. Perhaps read a second time if you're struggling before dismissing my posts so condescendingly.

This isn't a shot at Pep, I actually specifically called out Messi. I think if he'd gone to City (despite that being a bit contradictory) it would have proven his ability by going to a more competitive league.

Didn't presume it was a shot at any particular person.

Messi couldn't win either way if he went to City and reunited with Pep either

I think his record/performance against English clubs in the Champions League over the years proves he would have absolutely blitzed it I the Premier League

I have no idea why Boston always seem to play well against Minnesota, even with a depleted squad (granted so does the Wolves)

It almost feels like it's some kind of curse since they traded KG to us.

Well, we ended up losing and it was the first time the Celtics lost to Minnesota for more than 5 years (it was a 9 game win streak)

Feel free to give me the roasting I richly deserve

DeMar Derozen is ridiculous!

Two games in a row






First player in history with back to back buzzer beaters.

Will choke in playoffs like always.
That is hopefully where Zach comes in. :D

Let's be realistic, once we run into the Nets of Bucks in the playoffs we will be shown the door. But it's nice to at least be in the playoffs again.

Yeah, can’t see us beating either without another big. This is the best Bulls team we have had in years, so I am happy either way.
