I prefer Larkin to Rozier as PG.
larkin is definitely more intelligent and plays within himself more. Terry is really a 2 in my mind.

I've long been a Rozier hater, but I must give him some credit. He's impressed me this year.

That quarter was about as painful as I expected. Thankfully the D was pretty good. And I really do feel bad for Nader, because tonight he looks like he doesn't belong on an NBA floor. I really hope Brad goes with Larkin instead.

If we're gonna lose, at least put Yabu on the court over Nader.
No way we’re losing this

Moose is beasting.

He's a worse player but I derive more joy from watching Yabu play than Nader.

I definitely don't think Yabu is worse than Nader by any means. The problem is he just can't play SG while Nader supposedly can.

Honestly, I just can't watch Nader miss any more awkward shots. I don't doubt that he is a nice guy and a hard worker, but he is just not an NBA level player.

I guess there are no complaints about offensive rebounds so far.  ;D

Democracy begins with freedom from hunger, freedom from unemployment, freedom from fear, and freedom from hatred.

Nader really isn't an NBA player.   Many of us know the experience of playing ball with players a league better then ourselves.  I've experienced that in pick-up games where I quickly realize that I am a little slower and a little less skilled than the others -- so I just commit to running hard, defending as well as I can, and if I get my hands on the ball getting rid of it as fast as I can. 

Nader always looks like his skills are below the competition and yet he tries to make plays.  In fairness to him, making plays is what will keep him in the league so I get that he has to try -- but he always seems pressured and panicked -- he's in a league a step beyond his skills.

I was going to put might, but I figure since Nader has featured at times even when the team was mostly healthy, Stevens holds him in higher regard. But I agree with you. He obviously plays hard, he's just ridiculously incompetent.

Moving on, hopefully Monroe can keep this up.
