Not saying you're part of that kind of thinking cling because youre a good poster, it just gets tiresome with the overreactions especially since we're on the toughest streak of games we'll be on all year.

Jamario is still getting used to playing Calderon most of the time instead of Ford dont forget. I dont think its that his effort comes and goes, I think we should put him on the weakest offensive player and let him roam like AK does. You dont see UTA putting AK on Kobe and such. Moon was at his best when roaming and being around the basket, now Sam is putting him in the role of stopper and I dont think thats the best thing for his skillset, especially since hes so skinny. Hes good in some matchups vs other teams best players who are built like him, but besides that we should put him on other teams role players and let him roam and become the best on the boards he once was, specially with Bargs back in the lineup.
Agreed. I've actually liked Carlos in the starting line-up since about early november. i like moon, a lot, but i think he's nicer coming off the bench in my opinion. he had a nice game against the clips, though magette was a bit of a handful for him strength wise. he might just be really tired.
so yeah, it isn't me panicking at all. i just think he'd be nice in the starting line-up with his slashing/outside game, and his hardnosed defense. both players are pretty equal in terms of steals, obviously jamario is way better above the rim, blocking shots, but delfino has that edge, and having him on the floor for extended minutes with Bargs might have that spread to him as well.
