    In the few games I get to watch, I have seen Nate pull people out of games that are getting hot and put in a starter that is struggling that game and when that starter is still struggling he will put the other guy in and by that time he has cooled off. Has anyone else noticed this or is it my imagination? I really only get to see nationally televised games and one or two live when I go down to Portland. Just wondering

    Yes, I have seen it.  It's frustrating.  After the Outlaw trade it hasn't been as often, but it still happens occasionaly.  I remember that Nate would put in Travis for Batum ALL THE TIME, even when Batum was totally shutting down incredible scorers like Carmelo and Kobe.  Then Travis would come in and be awful.  Nate sure did love Travis, and he gave him minutes even when the lineup that was in the game was succeeding.  It is not just your imagination.  Nate now does it with Bayless replacing Miller and Roy.  Yeah, it's annoying.

    Yes I agree with barnettfan and famousroy. freddead must just be a fanboy.
    I really hope Nate has learned from his mistakes that he's made over and over and over again... but I doubt it since he kept doing it all last year too. Maybe he will let Nic stay on the floor for some actual starters minutes this year though, that would be great, but he always seems to sub in based on the time of the game, not the flow of the game, and it has lost us a few games, that drives me crazy! The only problem is, who would be an improvement to Nate that is available and would want to come here? I don't think anyone. So i hope Nate starts to learn a lot faster from his mistakes.

    Only Coach I think is a better NBA coach is Popovich, but Nate is a perfect coach for Portland, his demeanor, his cold toughness, his ability to relate with the players, he's a point guard coaching for an owner who loves and can relate/trust Nate. It disgusts me when people try to disect his coaching strategies, go play some more 2k  or waste your time on trade machine and shut your hole.

    Free speech must disgust you then. What's more disgusting to me is people telling others  to "shut their hole" because someone says something they don't agree with.

    How about everyone stay in their lane with both hands on the wheel. Nate is a great coach who has made errors in judgement in more games than we cared for. That was a problem, are we all in agreement?
    Solution: Bringing in Bickerstaff and Buck, should prove to be a wise decision as those two guys have a lot of experience and ideas that they can bring to the table. Nate's got respect for Bernie, and hopefully that translates into having an open mind , when it comes to constructive criticsm, options, schemes etc..

    You are a moron. I wasn't being hypocritical. My philosophy was free speech, I never told you to shut up. I said you disgust me with your stupid tough guy talk. I never said to shut your mouth. Idiots have a right to free speech too. So keep blowing through your hole, it just reeks.

    Well you have the right to think and say that, though I do happen to agree with you that Nate made bad moves in many games, but even if I didn't agree with you I wouldn't tell you to shut your hole. That was my point. I do hope that Nate is noticeably better this year, because it is so frustrating to watch him make the same mistakes over and over again. But like I said before, who is available that would be better for us? I don't think anyone is.

    We've been winning 50+ games every season and some of you people are complaining? Really? Sure, I don't agree with every single move Nate makes or doesn't make but let's be realistic, he is a good coach. He's molded most of these guys from inexperienced rookies to veterans within the span of 3-4 years. He just has a certain rotation and he sticks to it, no matter what. He dealt with mass amounts of injuries last season and he coached this team to 50 wins still. So, why are people complaining again?

    That's my point exactly. 50 wins the last 2 seasons, and ZERO postseason series victories.
    I never said Nate was a bad coach, I just don't think he can lead us to a championship. Of course I'd love to be proven wrong, but that is my opinion.

    Well he always seems to beat our McMillan coached teams every year, even coming back from a 20 point deficit last year to smoke us, and he knows how to get out of the first round, and he's actually lost in the Finals to... Michael Jordan.
    That doesn't really bake my noodle.
