Poll Added. Thoughts?

By the way, this is not an overreaction from the Indiana game. I've been saying this since Calderon has been back.

But should Banks be the 2nd PG after Calderon (starting) or Jack (starting)?

no chance. you have to good quality pg's signed long term and making good money, and banks is an expiring deal next year. he only plays if there is an injury or if you trade jose or jj.

Marcus Banks would not allow Price or Watson into the lane. And I don't think Rondo would be allowed to take a straight line to the basket. Or allow Lou Williams to get to the basket at ease.

I agree. Problem is with the 2nd unit today, you had Josť as the primary scorer esides perhaps Beli. Rasho chipped in, Weems takes a shot sometimes but I don't know if it'll work if you have Banks/Beli/Weems/Amir/Bargs or bosh/Amir. perhaps because today it was Rasho and amir at the same time. in that case offensively it might be to weak. although Banks has shown he can knock some down. perhaps of Beli creating

Interesting, 50/50.

Our offence seems to take care of itself every night, why is everyone in favour of keeping both offensive point gaurds? Who are used sometimes, at the same damn time!!

agreed...defense first on this one, how many one dimensional "offensive" players does Triano need.

let's see....Banks gets into the face of Wallace against the Cats and man's up

Calderon slaps Rondo and pushes Bosh out of the way to go and apologize

More Banks and more Weems = better D for our team.

We need to get rid of one of Jack or Jose.... and Wright (who is taking minutes from Weems and Belli).

I like Jack... and I like Jose.... but we REALLY need what Banks brings to the game.

Any player with a defensive mentality would balance this erratic team, including Banks. Marion did it last year so Banks has done it in his limited time this year. I would like to see him more, no question about it. But I don't think the stubborn coach shares my opinion.
