In a tight game against a team with quick athletic bigs like maybe a LA Clippers I could see him getting splinters, but there are plenty of games he should get at least 5 minutes and that doesn't mean him getting 5 minutes in garbage time tonight

    looking at Jerome Jordan tall-man performance the guy box-out well, rebound well, screen well, and pass to the open man well to start a fastbreak or when Jordan is standing (zone) at the foul line with the ball over his head looking for the open man (alley-oop to Shump)....Jordan deserve 6 straight minutes of playingtime in 2 or 3 quarters per game in this close 66 game schedual.

    Players like Blake Griifin, D.Howard, Horford, Duncan, KG, Bosh, Boozer, Love,
    Zack, Aldridge, will all attack Tyson Chandler early in the game looking to get
    Tyson in foul trouble.
    Having Amare switch to center to backup a Tyson in early foul trouble is all
    good but....if Jorts keep looking to score from the 3-ball line when we need him
    to screen for cutters/slashers/and to box-out for an offensive-rebound -vs-
    decent teams we are back to where we started at the begining of the season.

    Spot on Kiya, and you're right that was a sick ally to Shumpert lmao. But yeah even if he just offers a few fouls on a guy like Dwight it's a plus, you're not looking for Jordan to man up Dwight all night, but if he gives you 6 minutes, thats probably at least 1 or 2 less fouls on Chandler.

    I disagree on not letting Jorts shoot the 3-ball. He is excellent at it. He's like Dirk. Amar'e on the other hand... smh

    Jorts is 5 for 21 from 3-ball line???

    Jorts taking a big D.Howard/Noah/Horford out of the paint to shoot the 3-ball is different.
