I think you deserve a ban for suggesting Lowry should come off the bench. Best 3 games to start a season ever you donkey.

I'm not sold on that.

Our bench was clearly overrated going into the season. The truth is, and I know some of you won't like this or even believe it, but the disparity between a good and bad bench player in this league is miniscule. The main issue is the gap between elite players and solid starters is quite pronounced. Being 12 deep isn't going to get you extra wins but it may help keep you afloat during an injury-plagued stretch.

Honestly, it's a pretty clear trolling attempt, and hes done it many times in the past as well. I'm really surprised he hasnt been banned at least once yet.

I remember being banned for a week at least three times in my first year... these mods are going soft... or I've just been tamed.

Anybody suggesting Lowry, DD or Bagnani should be coming off the bench at this point are just trolling. I like Jose, but it's clear with how everything has been handled that Lowry is the guy we're moving forward with and he's so far exceened expectations.... he just needs more time to develop chemistry with the others and that will happen.

I really thought our bench would kill, there are 3 ex-starters on that bench after all. But the problem is nobody is capable of creating a shot there, and Casey should really reorganize his rotations to always keep one of Delmar/Andrea/Lowry playing with them. Once kleiza comes back to form, it will also help.

I think it will get better in a few weeks.

I'm not going to protect Casey, but he is playing 11 guys given there really isn't much difference with the lot of them. He is still trying to find out what will work ... quite sad given he had a month of training camp to iron this shit out and that was the big excuse last year.

Gotta say that Casey conference after the game gave me acid in the throat ... kept on saying that Philli went small so he was forced to play small ... shit ... your the guy that's supposed to put your will on the other team ... they come in on a back to back, and the visitors force you to play their game ... SAD ... SAD ... SAD ...
No strategy .. To date he is showing limited x & o capability

It's a tough situation... our smalls, without lowry, are probably the weakest group in the league, therefore it's difficult to even hold the fort in that department when other teams play that way.... in addition to that, many of our bigs are young and haven't very limited offensive games that are either developing or quite mechanical, which means they're not yet ready or capable to punish teams that go small against us. JV can get there but isn't yet, AB is there, but Ed, Amir and to a lesser extent Gray aren't offensive forces that teams have to really concern themselves with. Only Gray really poses a major size problem of the three and I'm not sure if he got much run last night.... might have been a better solution just to camp him out down low, but then so many complain that he shouldn't even be involved offensively....kind of a lose-lose scenario. It's why we've needed more vet talent and not so many young. developing players that seem to be unable to impose their will.

I agree with that, this team isn't quite ready to impose their will when KL is off the court. That will take some time to build that kind of identity, more than the 6 games played so far.

It does say alot for Jose though... our 2nd unit is damn good with him running it. Not 6th man of the year stuff but at least now we have a 6th man.

With Lucas3 we are sunk if he just keeps coming out and chucking... 4 more games and if he still can't hit a shot or pass I cut him loose.
