Just a thought

Jose played 23 mins per game as a rookie... he averaged 5.5 ppg and 4.5 apg. He didnt' have a lot of confidence but he hustled his butt off. It was his experience that following summer at Fiba where they won the world championship combined with him working a lot on his shot that elevated him to the next level. In other words, he got better by playing...not sitting on the bench.

Ukic will rot on the bench here... trust me if BC saw it any different it would be different.
