Why the heck not? This guy is much more than a three point shooter (and a lot of times he's instant offense).
The problem is we got too many guards and fowards but not enough bigs.. some guys are bound to get forgotten I guess. Especially when they all play just about the same way and don't provide anything different from the other.
In the game against Miami, Walker made a statement for himself: "I can play D and rebound". He pulled down 6 boards in that game from the 2 and 3 spots, played standout defence against James and hit his shots.
How has this guy not earned his rotation spot? Jefferies came in and took it. We've been increasingly pathetic since.
D'Antoni's a dip****.
i kinda miss watching bill walker play.seems like he was finding his nitch in playing defense. that buzzer beater he had against miami was clutch/awesome. d'antoni is a fool so theres probably no way he will expand his rotation at this point and let masonjr+walker play.
In a rush to adjust, D'Antoni has excluded them in a vein attempt to get results out of a new team.
One of a myriad of reasons that a comparably less talented team in Philadelphia has taken 6th, and we've become a high payroll -.500 team. Early stages of a new roster or no, that's inexplicable and inexcusable.
I know, why isn't he playing, this is the problem I have with MDA. I just can't take it anymore..I really can't.
When the heck is this team going to get it..when ? I guess next year.
Yeah, Carter played well for us. What's up with that? Anybody know our record with him?
I dont get it at ALL! Its not like we have a deep bench, EXPAND the rotation! AC and Bill are sparks off the bench.
NOOOO he wants to stick with JJ's no catching ass. BTW did anybody else see him AIRBALL ANOTHER 3 lastnight?
I would like to see some burn fro Walker, too. Roger Mason is playing well, though. Billy can play the three every once in a while. When Melo goes to the bench.
TD/Billups, Roger Mason/Bill Walker/Landry, Shawne Williams/Bill Walker, Amar'e/Shawne Williams, Ronny/Amar'e/Jeffires.
Honestly I think if we had the right coach we would had won at least 50 games this year, and been better prepared for the playoffs. Yeah, chemistry this and that. Why isn't any other team making up excuses. Play ball and stop whinning
I don't understand how Mason Jr. got Walker's minutes. I don't ever recall Walker screwing things up and hurting the team in recent weeks. How do you go from major contributor in an emotional Heat win to bench warmer for someone that couldn't hit a shot all year and is still mediocre at best?
I KNOW by watching Walker in college and on this team that he has the ability to be the 2nd guard off the bench. He has so much ability that Dantoni will never realize. Walker is a slasher/attack the basket type player who finishes strong to the basket if given enough space. He's not easy to guard and isn't horrible defensively. You can bet Walker isn't high on MDA at this point either.
