    Daye is our +/- leader this year at +27 and he's "incredibly talented" according to the coach.
    (I swear that is not an Onion article)

    Middleton is untested so far. Not sure why he hasn't been sent to the Mad Ants yet. My guess is that they know that he'll light it up there and it will put pressure on the organization to squeeze him into NBA games-- they view stats in the D-League as fool's gold and will be afraid that he'll pick up selfish habits.

    Singler- 7th in the NBA in adj FG% and generally kicking butt, but as Slippy said, he's taken over Stuckey's spot.

    Jerebko- coach likes him at PF because he's more effective in the paint than on the perimeter with his slumping jumper. He'll probably get some time back in the lineup if Villanueva goes deeper into a shooting slump.

    Corey's injuries have caught up with him, he's been in the league a long time, and his bread and butter has been in the ability to get to the free throw line and all of that banging has taken it's toll on him.......I think it's now time to give English some minutes as the backup SG.

    Why exactly does this guy get PT still? He's like Super Collider Plus with worse control.

    he gets minutes because our coach thinks all he has to do is put bodies on the floor and the players should win. If they dont its the players fault right? Plus who else do ya play? a rookie with a sweet stroke from outside and energy on the defensive end? what would that do for us?

    At this point I'm thinking he's getting PT purely because he's a vet. He's at least not playing huge minutes but it probably is time to see what English/Middleton can do.

    He may be playing because he's the only old fart who actually does the on-court mentoring of the youngsters.

    I don't want to be unrespectful, but in Spanish sports slang ( in Spain ) we call that kind of player "a parcel"....
    something you gotta carry on. Sorry, it sounds quite unrespectful.

    I don't get it: my parents are not alive anymore. I have relatives in Windsor ( Canada ). But I guess I should've kept my mouth shut . I will from now on.

    I was saying the concept of him being a parcel that needs to be carried sounds about right...it wasnt meant to insult, I was agreeing with you.

    That's just Copper's ignorant signature. It's not directed at you specifically, it's on all of his posts.

    @Copper, change your sig to something less offensive.

    Nazis were only genocidal if you were Jewish.

    Your response doesn't really make sense. I didn't compare you to a Nazi. I used an extreme analogy that noone could dispute in order to make my point. Being offensive to one group of people is, by definition, being offensive. Would you tell a history teacher that he can't say the Nazis were genocidal unless he is a Jew? Of course not. Thus my analogy.

    Applying that reasoning to your original post, being offensive and not being aware of it is ignorance. That's why your signature can be described as ignorant.
