i too think banks should get some time like 5 mins for defensive presence. but triano is on bcs ish, so basically they want to put stuff on for fans to eat. this includes playing a useless caldy

yes, Calderon is horrible defensively, but remember the games that he was out for??
while banks was there and provided solid minutes...I do also remember that the 2nd unit was stagnant and the ball didn't move

The answer to this thread is unanimous, its Banks. Everyone on RF has been protesting to get Banks playing time, but it not gonna happen as long as jose and triano are there.
in order:
Banks
Weems
Belineli
actually Amir's min are good as they are now

pretty much clear as day to anyone not named Bryan Colangelo or Jay Triano that Marcus Banks should be getting playing time

I also think Amir should be getting more minutes

Amir already gets 20 minutes per game. That's right where it should be. Jack should be playing MORE than Jose. Banks needs atleast 5-10 minutes. Bellineli should atleast PLAY. The only two people who should be playing less is Jose in the 4th and Hedo, unless he actually shows up(for once).

I would say Amir. He is unselfish, scores consistently, hustles, and plays D.

Jose is productive with the given minutes and giving him anymore wouldn't really help us.

Derozan isn't very productive, nor is he explosive. I love the hustle... and, unfortunately, that's about it.

Banks is an underrated baller and displays great sportsmanship. But I would take Jack and Calderon over him on most nights.

Weems is sort of like Moon, he can only operate well under a certain amount of minutes. Keep him in there too long and his flaws will increasingly become noticeable.

I understand that you guys are suggesting more Banks would be good, but i really can't see it making a difference - for a couple of reasons. 1. One role player isn't going to dramatically change the team's fortunes when they're playing like poo as a team. and 2. we're talking about MARCUS FREAKING BANKS here. like i get that he's had some nice stretches, but we're talking bout Marcus Banks.

I'm afraid we're back in the midst of a coaching crisis. Like at the beginning of the season when everyone was going in different directions and the sky was falling. It's the same shit all over again if you ask me.

No offense, but that's insane and will thankfully never, ever happen.

fancy.... Imagine if you will our PG stopping the opposing guard's dribble penetration.... just for a second. Imagine him being strong enough NOT to get posted up... or being quick enough to apply some good pressure at 3/4 court.

THAT would make a world of difference (IMO).

as long as it involves hedo getting less minutes, im fine with that. im tired of watching him miss easy shots, erratically running into defenders getting offensive fouls, and of course his lacklustre defense. oh ya wright has played really shit lately, cant hit a shot worth his life. so correction, id rather those two get less minutes. its a shame that they both are sf's, so my hopes are not at all realistic.

Can we please cut down Bargnani's minutes. He doesn't play D or pick up rebounds and only does spot up shooting.
