Were you expecting Shaquille O'Neal straight out of the box? FFS give the guy a chance to get settled and get his body right.
im all for giving him a chance bro, but he needs to EARN that chance, he cant just show up outta shape, playing piss poor in the summer league, having heart problems then obv not near game shape in practice and expect to get any PT, i rather give that PT to JO to prove to others he is healthy or to AB to develop him further. If your boy puts in the effort in the weightroom and in practice, believe me, he will get his burn, this is where the big boys play, there is no hand outs for a 2nd round pick.

Furthermore, no one's hating on Nate.

The first post asked why he wasn't getting more playing time.

We attempted to explain it.

As for him getting hurt in summer league that is untrue and wrong. He was hurt heading into summer league as he picked up an injury in the draft workouts. But hey I only interviewed the guys coach from Australia so maybe we are wrong and you are right. LOL than again.

Nathan does need time be it here or in the D-League. Given the state of this team why not let it be here. Is Jake Voskhul getting resigned? NO. Will J.O even be here by next season? Unclear but not likely so why the heck not have him go out there and learn playing meaningful minutes. I mean go buy a clue trying to make evaluations of a guy in 5 minutes of Garbage time. Master P made a 3 pointer in pre-season based on that should the Raptors have signed him up? That is about as logical as making evaluations based a such a small sample. The guy might have been a bit over excited based on all he has been through and getting out on the floor finally? I mean honestly the general negative mood around here is bad enough without this kind of total stupidity.

You know what's funny? Is I got a blogger here claiming to be an expert as well.

I said it before and I'll say it again, our best case scenario is he becomes a Big Bay Davis version for us. Watching him warm up before the Boston game for about 30 minutes and watching him move for his size, he just reminded me of his game.

But why should he get time in big leagues? He's completely unprepared and you can see it on his face and when he plays. He should be at the D-L simply to get his conditioning back up to par firstly and secondly gain some confidence is his game. The difference between the D and the NBA? The game moves at a much quicker pace. Throwing him in the Lion's den would be the dumbest thing to do right now, espescially for a big man. If you're serious about him, you bring him along slowly. Hell, the only reason he's on the big league squad is b/c we don't have any players as it is right now on our bench.

I don't know where to start.

What makes you more qualified than anyone else here. Just because you have a blog doesn't make you fucking Yoda. State your opinion, but your condesending tone latley is tiresome. If I started a blog about advanced aerodynamics does that make me an expert on the subject.

Listen I don't want to be mean, but franticly making sure you are the first to call in on "Hoops" thursday, does not mean you have any more insight than anyone else.
