When the bench is struggling to score you have a guy that can go off for 30 on any night to lean on. You can never have enough fire power especially if you wanna beat Miami and Chicago, a matter a fact imagine Miami bench trying to contain Baron Davis, JR Smith, and Shumpert they'd have fits.
so who's the odd man out?
I mean Bibby is no doubt the player we cut
But who is out of the rotation?
Feilds is doing all the intagiables that made him valuable to us last year
Shump is as much responsible for our win in Toronto (as well as Minny and Washington) as Lin
Novak makes a little sense, yet beyond his shooting, he's a big man who stretches the floor
Bill Walker was going to lose his minutes to Melo anyways
But what happens when BD comes back?
With mutiple 2 games in 2 nights as well as 4 games in 6 night sets as well as our one remaining back to back to back remaining, too much depth is a oxymoran (probally spelled wrong) but with chemistry brewing and already 2 players to think about working in (Melo and BD) this is somewhat of a risk
Yet....I have been quoted before in other threads as saying this would be a great pick up for us!
Shooter and as Metro's footage showed a dynamic finisher, makes the offense very difficult to stop now!
Then what happens when BD returns?
Smith will be starting in no time with Fields backing up Melo, and Shump backing up Smith (and Lin until Davis plays)
Coach will go to Novak and Jeffries depending on whether we need offense or defense.
Jorts will see spot mins at center and PF. Walker will definitely be out of the rotation.
lol...we r gonna rock it this year!!!we got an amazing team now...AMAZING!!!we have a chance to bring it all home now!!!our team is better then the miami now no doubt on that!!!
Did we sign this cat yet? I'm seeing nothing, anywhere...
we still have to make a roster spot so thats why it isn't official yet
The beginning of the end part II
I don't want Smith.
And I have also checked everywhere for a source. Can't find any.
Like one poster said, he is going to demand a certain amount of shots. He's a worse version of Jamal Crawford, and we don't need a chucker.
While it's true he's more likely to go off than most players, at what price would that be at? He'd give us 37 one night and go 1-12 the next. Plus, I'm not sure about his commitment on defense. I don't care about the flashy dunks, either, we're dunking just fine without him.
We need consistency, we're slowly getting more and more of it, especially with the resurgence of Lin. I just feel like this would mess up our chemistry. If this move DOES go down, I hope I'm wrong.
