DD starting reminds me of Hoffa...

Why is DD starting when he gets benched after like 3,4 minutes??

DD isn't ready to start for this team. He simply isn't. When he is on the floor, our team is pretty much playing with 4 players. On D, he is often lost, and never gets the benefit of the whistle, and on offense, his defender always sags off, and unless he gets a put back, or attacks every 2 minutes or so, he is just coasting.

Why is he starting?

Start Marco, or Wright, at least that way Wright doesn't have to come off the bench and force shots...

How could triano possibly give wright the spot, he's played like absolute horseshit

Seriously, wright is shooting 30 % , his D is overated, Derozan rebounds more then him, derozan blocks more shots then him, derozan get more steals then him, FUCK WRIGHT

Wright is playing well enough to be a 10th man on a d league team right now



play derozan and let him develope, we have enough shooter's with limited vertical's. If not derozan then next up weems with his clumsy midget hands, lets just stick with them DD's

That's my problem man.

Either commit, or bench him.

What's this 3,4 minute bullshit?

Either let him play for at least 6 minutes, or bring him off the bench.

If not Wright, then Marco man.

Do something, this is bullshit.

JT never rocks the boat on the rotation ... Its refreshing but at the same time frustrating

JT is committed to only playing him 18-20 mpg despite his good starts in some games this year. If hes playing well he needs to play more especially with Wrights horrible play this year.

We have no one to replace DD right now anyway, JT should throw some more minutes at the kid and get him even more experience so come 2nd half he can have a bigger impact. No rookie is going to have much impact playing in 5 minute stretches like you said. Give him some extended minutes and get him in in the 2nd and 4th qtrs and see what he can do. He hasnt REALLY hurt us this year when hes been on the floor besides the 3rd qtr vs Indy where he wasnt far enough up on Granger a few times.

Marco cant start because pairing him with Jose is like giving the other team a for sure 110+ppg total no matter what the team is by nights end.

Haffa doesn't even belong in the same breath as DeMar, at least DeMar has a shot at being a player.

DeMar's leash is so tight that even if he gets off to a good start there's a chance it's not gonna translate into playing time. It's so hard getting into a flow if you don't know where and when your minutes are coming from, especially as a rook coming from good consistent minutes in college.

Dude is my age, tough for his psyche.
