i was definitely one of the ones unhappy about barbosa picking up his option. we're not going to be any good, so i don't care about the 2-5 wins he might help us get - in fact they may even be detrimental in the pursuit of a pick. more importantly, though, i think he takes touches away from the guys we are trying to develop. that is partly because of his minutes, but more because of the way he plays in his minutes. he is a black hole, and i think he wastes development opportunities for the young guys by going 1 on 5 all the time. play bayless, dd, johnson, etc. those guys need minutes. barbosa isn't part of the future, and winning games now is practically irrelevant.
