    Sprewell....made a very good point....a certain coach has not been playing
    enough players to fit into this rugged 66 game schedule....this certain coach
    has to be force by injuries to give bench players playingtime.
    Our offense & defense become stagnant when Melo or Stat is on the court,
    plus Melo & Stat havnt showed an inch of leadership or showed a sweat-drop
    of effort on defense in 25 games.
    Losing 9 out of 10 games with Melo & Stat were horrible
    Losing without Melo & Stat makes us an underdog........

    We have a few bench-players in need of playingtime to show they are worth
    a contract next season.
    Real Talk....I was getting tired of the Melo & Stat iso plays when all our so
    call bum PG could get an alleyoop to Chandler all game long.
    Who should be playing around the paint on offense? Stat or Chandler
    Who should be defending the paint on defense? Chandler or Stat

    In the 25 games played I never seen Melo, Stat, or Chandler come to the foul
    line to pick or screen for TD, Bibby, or Shump when they had the ball playing
    the point
    .

    if you watch lin play (a pure point guard play) you will see him commanding the pick thats what we need in a point guard. shooting guards such as shump and td will just look to shoot.

    This is a blessing in disguise when STAT gets back mostly he should have around a week and a half to be the main option again and get some chemistry on the P&R with Lin. Let's just hope Amare recovers enough from his brothers death soon.

    And then like most ppl have stated it gives the role players a chance to step up and build their confidence, while allowing Melo to heal up properly from all his injuries.

    I never understood an Isolation play.

    I understand how it works in theory, but considering the caliber of teams today, as soon as opposing teams see 4 of your teammates swing to the side, they know to collapse someone to trap you. If the opponent is smart, they'll still be between you and your team, preventing a pass and forcing you to abandon the play. But with 'Melo, he is usually dead-set in completing the Iso, usually putting up a difficult forced shot and not even getting fouled in the process.

    Alley-oops though? (To any of your bigs.) Awesome.

    Also -- "real talk" -- isn't that still McCool's schtick?
