He played one minute yesterday.

How does Triano not get crucified for that?

I also think he should play more... Raps have nothing to lose.

Why they don't play him is beyond me...

Maybe they still think they're going to make the playoffs?

Triano is grasping at straws trying to win to save his job.
What he should realize is that ultimately his legacy of failure as a head coach will be tempered by how he helps the younger players develop. He won't get another assistant job by stringing together a couple w's. It'll be because of the perception (true or false) that players like Bargs, Joey and maybe even Roko thrived on his watch.
So yes JT, free Roko!

When did you want him to put him in? When Calderon went out and parker played pg we went up 9. If he had put roko in at that time and we go down by 10 at that time. everyone would have said... why did f*ckin triano put in roko when we're up 9.. fire him!!! etc. etc. etc.

we had that game until the last 3 mins of the game.. and I dont know if u want to put in roko then.

That being said.. I think we should rest calde for the season. And yesterday we shouldve but banks on deron will yesterday.. banks and roko both play pretty good 1 on 1 d.

I agree completly. Hopfully Triano doesn't do this if we are down by a lot. Parker IMO is better than Roko at this point and it makes sense that if we want to win we should play Parker more but we already suck so why not

Well of course Parker is better, he's a frigging veteran - Roko's a rookie and he's been getting shafted for playing time all year.

This season is done, and at this point making the playoffs is a pipe dream. With the way Jose's been playing of late, Roko deserves to be splitting the minutes. Triano is just sacrificing the long term health of this team by failing to develop the kid.

If you put it that way we should also rest Jose for the rest of the season. That way Roko can get all the playing time in the world.(this is not a sarcastic post)

haha, thanks for clarifying...

I know I'm not the only one on RF that agrees with shutting down Jose for the rest of the season. Something's up with his game - I don't know if he's healthy or just lacking confidence, but he's not playing up to his potential and frankly he's hurting the team.

Roko hasn't had a chance to play big minutes, so I think it'd give the Raptors' brass a chance to see what the kid has. I personally think the cat has a lot of potential, and I think when he gets some fuzz on his nuts and a little NBA burn under his belt he'll be pretty damn good. Starting point guard of the future? Who knows. I just don't want to see three years pass by and have us scrambling for a starting point guard because Roko is still at the same stage he was when he came into the league.

He's a rookie that's been extremly inconsistent. On the other hand we aren't winning and aren't going to the playoffs, so play him 20 minutes per, and see if he can improve further.

Guys, Parker is a nice player, but he is no PG. He holds on to the ball way too much. Why play the guy 1 freaking minute? It makes no sense whatsoever. Whatever though, I think he's better suited going to a team like San Antonio and backing up Parker there. They have pretty similar games and he'd likely develop into a better player under the right tutelage.

As for Jeff's comment of being inconsistent. Thank you Capt. Obvious!!! Name me a rookie who isn't. Hell, tell me a rookie PG who wasn't inconsistent.

We were 23-40. Seriously. 23 wins. The reason he's playing Parker is strictly to try for the win. Admirable, but at some time, you gotta plan to develop or see what you got in some guys.

We still freaking lost. I don't care if we were up 30. You can't justify playing the guy 1 minute. The season has long been lost. Suck it up and play AP alongside Roko to help calm him down and add a veteran presence. As I said, he's not a PG.

You won't get much of an argument from me LX.

At this point I think that Jay's still trying to make the playoffs.... only explanation I can think of.

That sad thing is that he should realize that our best chance TO make the playoffs is to go with Roko and AP at the point and Marion and Joey covering strong opposing PGs.

Once we're mathematically eliminated if he STILL doesn't play Roko I'll be very, very disappointed.
