I hope Hollins doesn't take out his frustrations by benching Ed Davis.

We made the ed + amir combo work against almost every front court in the league with the exception of LA and a few others.

Hollins should be able to as well.

Unfortunately its Hollinger to blame for this, and hollins can only work with what he has. He wanted a 5 instead he got an undersized 4 and lost his best scorer. I wouldnt blame him. However there are some solid 5s in the west compared to the east: Gortat, Cousins, Howard, Gasol, Asik, Pekovic and etc.

Yep. We've pretty much had NO real bigs on our roster other than Gray for most of the season. He has 2 in Zach and Gasol and he's complaining? As bjjs said, there's no reason why Scola and Gortat should torch you down low. If they get their points they outwork you... they dopn't overpower you like Cousins or D12.

How can this guy know what he has in Davis if he won't play him more than 5 min/gm??

who else is pissed off at Hollins for not giving Ed Davis more than 6 min per game?

the guy was the best player on our team on a lot of nights.

i cannot express enough my sympathy towards Davis' current situation. i know the trade landed us Rudy, but he deserves so much better than this BS.

Is Hollins finally appreciating Ed's game?

14 points on 6-7 shooting, 4 boards and 4 blocks in 21 minutes. Pretty damn good after riding the pine for so long.

That's ok..... any time he can get to showcase his skills is gonna help.

Tonight's performance should open Hollins' eyes a bit.

I don't think his eyes need to be opened up. Ed is clearly part of Memphis's long term plans, but they can't justify playing him minutes over their elite power forward.

True, but Arthur can play both the 4 and 5, while Ed cannot.
