TIME FOR A CHANGE 

TIME FOR A CHANGE

from Sports Illustrated Online

It's been a crazy week in Memphis, but don't take my word for it. I'll let somebody else describe the situation for you:

"Now, you're Jerry West. You've just lost your head coach, who won the Coach of the Year award the season before and energized your team, OK. You've gone from winning 50 games in this league to 5-9 in the Western Conference, where you are surrounded by playoff-quality teams, eh-heh-heh, eh-heh-heh, eh-heh, OK.

"Plus, your best player, Pau Gasol, is battling ankle problems, and your small forward James Posey, who gave you great energy, is out with a foot injury. OK, now, in spite of this, you also must recognize that you still have a roster that is deep and young and has tremendous upside, and with that, you still have the opportunity to win a lot of games in this league and get into the playoffs."

While Hubie Brown may not have said those exact words in his distinctive style, it would be an appropriate analysis of his former team.
