    Please, please,please disband this current line-up. Joe Johnson is NOT a leader. The Coach has and will always be an assistant. Every year it’s the same ole song. This will never, ever,ever be a Championship team. Should have never let Jamal Crawford go. Another year, another predictable ending.
