The Clippers remain as disappointing as ever, but they have finally found their man, so clueless it's as if he was born to be this organization's spokesman. He likes to speak in contradictions, so he's almost always right as well as wrong and as joke's go, Vinny Del Negro is a hoot.

"Our energy and effort overall in the fourth quarter was the difference"

Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said of the team's 2/9/10 victory over the Pacers. Does he realize every time he says things like this he's essentially admitting that the Bulls aren't really better at basketball than the other team? Sadly, he's proabably right.

I know it's just the preseason, but I've noticed a change in Del Negro so far. The year of experience seems to have made a big difference. He's more confident and isn't as defensive. He's been very organized and the team got a lot accomplished in the first two weeks of camp. Barring any major injuries over the next three weeks, the Bulls should be prepared for a fast start in the regular season.

Del Negro ready to step up?

Listen, it was a tough, close game with 95 possessions and 233 points scored between both teams. And Del Negro (who does have plenty of strengths, despite my constant complaining) coaches a young team. There's a lot to try and keep in order. But at some point you're going to have to trust the players to work it out on their own, running the plays you've been calling since October, and doing what 29 other coaches seem to be able to do quite effortlessly. Well, not "effortlessly," but consistently. VDN's inability to save timeouts for the final seconds has been a sticking point all season, among many sticking points, and it's hard to understand how in game 84 (plus preseason) it still hasn't stuck. You have to keep one in your back pocket, and that doesn't mean you eschew calling the TO before the final TO. It's the TO before the TO before the final TO that you don't call. You have to learn to let it go, especially with the ball in your hands, up a point, and about two minutes to go.

Kelly Dwyer on VDN

Pax on Vinny. Really? I don't think it would've been out of bounds to say he's a rookie coach but overall blah blah blah. Hell, Pax wouldn't even use such blanket praise for Derrick Rose.
