    I personally love the energy the Lee, Nate and Balkman give when they come off the bench and I think we should keep that group together.

    You're right, they were discussing this, this morning on WFAN. Balkman could start aon many teams, maybe even somewhere like Detroit, Dallas, or anywhere else in the NBA. but there is something we needand it's called Balance. Curry and Craw play SO well together, and Craw can get EC involved in a game early and have him set the tone sure you have Steph on the court but his connection/chemistry is not as good with EC.

    Plus having Balkman off the bench with Lee and Nate is something magical, and I wouldn't mess with it.

    If Balkman were to start, who would produce energy off the bench? Lee, Nate, and Balkman produce game-changing energy. Just because Balkman had one excellent game does not mean he should start. He's excellent because he's accepted the role as the bench energizer
