Just a couple of points.
If I was a player, I sure wouldn't want my possible contributions to the team based on 4 minutes in 5 games!
The combo of Darko, Sully, JGreen, and JT really worked most exellently in preseason. Leave BB in the starting lineup and then bring this unit in when KG checks out!?? Leaves dirty work to Darko and Sully, and lets JT and JG do their thing without worrying about involving everyone else in the offense.
If C's were 4-1 or 5-0 and running like a finely tuned machine, I would imagine Darko would be enjoying it as much as we would. But when you're only wins are 1 pt. and OT against one of the lousier teams in the league, playing shorthanded on top of it, you gotta understand if that isn't going over to well!
Small ball stinks, and even CW is only 6'10", and really a PF, not a center! So Doc playing him is not REALLY getting away from playing small ball. We've got 3 7's on the bench--two of which have a rep for shot blocking, and the other a solid defender. I have no prob with Doc's experimenting with different rotations, but only experimenting with "small ball" rotations is the problem.
Really tired of other teams doing basically layup drills against us when KG goes out! Last year we had Steimer. No easy shots at the rim, especially when he AND KG were in together. I think thats this years teams biggest problem--NO INTIMIDATION in the middle!
