Time to bring this thread back b/c Novak deserves some major props.He can steal drain the three but he just isn't a spot up three point shooter.The man has improved on everything.He can dribble and make his own shot,his defense has really improved and he is even rebounding the ball more. Great job Steve (the sniper) Novak.
PASS HIM THE BALL!!!!
He will never be all-world in anything except shooting, but he is showing more effort in other aspects of the game. His defense and rebounding has improve. He can even put the ball on the ground and gather a shot now....
This gives me hope that STAT will change when he returns as well.
In Woody's world no effort = no playing time.
Am i the only one to notice that Novak does not get enough touches when he is on the floor?
He runs from one side to another trying to lose his defender and many times he is wide opened with opened armes waiting for the ball and nothing. His release is as quick as Reggy Millers i think, so he just needs a split second to catch and shoot.
I realize that he cant create his own shot, still not a good defender, coach rarely runs plays for him, and he spends a lot of time on the court. Why? If cant find him, you might as well sit him on the bench.
Shooters like him need to be in a rhythm, but the way they are using him, he is useless most of the time. I know he streaches the floor, but still.
Ummmm....... Steve has been horrible as of late. And I'm talking about when he is WIDE THE HECK OPEN and missing badly. His hustle and defense has gone up. But if I was Woody, I'd bench Novack. Can we trade him somehow??
Don't think trades are a necessity as yet. I'd like to see how STAT affects Novak's game in the 2nd unit.
With Shump coming back and PT tightening, who would we prefer to see ~ Novak or Brewer get more PT than the other? We already know what Woody's preference is out there.
