Randy Wittman is just as frustrated as anyone, and his postgame quotes last night were both sad and hilarious. Mostly sad.
“I believe these guys can win. I don’t have doubts. I come in here every day, thinking: ‘This is the night. I feel good,’ ” Wittman said, via Michael Lee. “I might be dumb.”
Oscar Wilde once said that the basis of optimism is sheer terror. Sounds about right.
Here’s Wittman on his lineups: “I don’t know who to start, who to play, who not to play,” Wittman said. “It’s a confusion of different guys, every game. Whether starter or bench. We have no consistency. To get off to a start like we did tonight, it was no excuse for it.”
And here he is on whether he’ll start a producing Shaun Livingston: “Oh, I don’t know. If I had that answer right now, I’d be a genius.”
Then there’s this Twitter exchange from two of my favorite people.
He doesn’t have a cell phone? You can call the waiver wire? RT @gene_wang: Wittman…”If I had a cell phone, I’d be calling the waiver wire.
