Open Letter To Darren Collison

Open Letter To Darren Collison


My man.

I bought a carton of milk yesterday and saw this…..


Darren Collison’s game.

Last seen November 7th versus the Raptors.

If seen, please return to the AAC.

What’s going on out there?  This team, especially Dirk-less, needs you to run this machine.  Games 1 through 5 of this season you were nearly unstoppable.  You were penetrating the paint, finding the open shooter and taking an easy lay ups.  The jumpers were falling too.

But now you’re playing apprehensive.  I see you picking up your dribble too soon and desperately looking for someone to pass to.  This has resulted in some ugly turnovers that are starting to become a problem.  We can’t have 1 problem, rebounding, compacted into another problem which is careless turnovers.  The pass you tried to make to Matrix in the middle of the 4th vs. Golden State was hideous.  You tried a lob pass that I wouldn’t even try at the YMCA playing against guys with back hair and bald spots.  They basically have the body hair of Chris Kaman, the hair of Manu Ginobili, and the body of Geovany Soto.  Point is; you shouldn’t be making these passes.  Not when our margin of error is so razor thin.

Coach Carlisle Voice: Look, the Knicks are going to come in here and play with aggressive disposition.  You’re going to have to make smarter decisions and be more aggressive with your offense.

Dirk is out for another month and tonight is an opportunity to get this ship headed in the right direction.  If we keep losing at this rate, it wont matter when Dirk returns, we’ll be toast.  A win over the Knicks is the best thing for this team right now.  Especially going up against Jason Kidd!!   It starts with you.  I want double digit points, double digit assists, and at least 3 steals.

DO NOT  let Dominique Jones steal your minutes; that’s a challenge.
