Exactly. Right after the PHI game I said D'ant *needed* to put a leash on Douglas, and start figuring out a way to integrate Walker and Fields more into the offense. It's just good sense, but it also speaks to how D'ant *will* be running this team, and given how out team is made up, we need to work within those two realities.
Look. We have a *pathetic* backcourt. D'ant *craves* strong, dynamic, scoring/facilitating backcourts.
So it's natural that Douglas would be getting over-trusted, over-relied upon, and over-played, especially since he has flash in the pan type of moments that speak to him being just the type of guard D'ant would love.
But he can't be treated like some proven baller and just be unleashed and you feel confident in the decision. Which is why Fields or Walker need to be integrated more to take loads off Douglas when he isn't on.
Or, D'ant needs to not demand such play out of his guard spots, and play more of a Larry Brown type offense.
Of course, all of these quandaries beg further...why we never made an effort on any level to draft or sign one of the many rich guards we could have had since D'ant came aboard.
