Let me tell you what "inconsistant" in the NBA means. Look at Gerald Green and Adam Morrison. These guys are highly talented, but truly inconsistant, scoring 20 some nights, going O-fer on others. They are on really bad teams, who can afford to let them flounder. I'd say that Amir's probably about the same talent level as these guys at the moment, and would play the same way as these guys. Do we really want that on the court right now when we're trying to win a championship? I trust that Flip and Joe know whether he'll bring value to the team by being on the court. When he can do it consistantly, he'll play.
