I guess that kid hasn't been watching Renaldo too much.
My starting five would be
Way i figure it is Jefferies starts but basically only plays the first 5 minutes of each half. I just love having two big time energy guys off the bench. Lee and Balkman on the bench brings so much enthusiasm, not to mention they both play better with Crawford and Nate on the floor with them. And just remember fellas the five that starts doesn't have to finish.
Early in the games we're going to be a slow it down pound it inside team. But once the bench comes in we could be a dangerous up tempo team. Maybe throw in a full court press every now and then.
Just my opinion though.
The more I watch the summer league, the more I love our squad...
We have a nice mix of vets and upcoming youngins'
Damn I mean our starting 5 can be
PG: Mardy, Nate
SF: Balkman, Chandler
Where there is hope, there can be faith
Where there is faith, miracles can occur
just caught the end of the Sac game, we looked sloppy in the 4th, but I like the way Nate and Renaldo just came in and took back controll for us. I missed the first 3 periods, but it looked like from the box score that Chandler and Nichols did their thing again, looks like Morris can really hit the boards, looks like Jerome James's days may be coming to a end soon, I hate buying players out, but he is a major exception, plus we actually traded away Francis so it makes it easier to swallow. What do yall think is better for Nichols... riding the bench all season but still making the squad, or he playing in Europe working on his game, with the hope he joins us soon. I just think there is no comp. like the NBA, practicing w/ players like Q, Jamall, Steph, Nate everyday in practice would prepare him for the league. Wilson Chandler will get the same type of training from Balk, Jefferies and Q.
Oh how could I forget Nate had more than 10 assist, and Balk hit on 8 of 10 from the line, if Balk can improve from the line like Lee did, then watch out ! he and David just grab so many offensive boards that if Lee can stay at 80 pct from the line and if Balkman is in high 70's then they'll both average 10 off the bench....Alright let's not get too excited about next years possibilities, I remember I thought that Larry Brown's first season was going to be a great sucess for us
Lol, ya it felt like larry brown hyped us for the worst.
But from the SAC game, Nichols is no joke. 3-4 from 3pt. Played good D, what i liked the best is that he shows no hesitation to pass the ball to another open player, hes not just someone looking to take shots.
Mike D'antoni. Atleast hes better than Isiah. I hope.
