    Wilcox brought what Ben used to bring to the games last night. He is a leaper and has shown the ability to hustle and disrupt the opposition.

    He needs more playing time. Not sure if I would start him though??

    Still think Monroe as the starter with Wicox as the back up and Ben as the specialist is the way to go.

    I might swap CG for Jmax, but I agree.

    Don't agree here.

    I start Monroe at C and Charlie V at PF.

    Bring in Wilcox to spell Monroe at C and Summers to play PF.

    Summers needs to get floor time and if you believe your program he is an inch taller but 20 lbs. lighter. He can also shoot the ball and help spread the floor.

    It is time for Max's time to be given to Summers so we can see what this kid has.

    We need size. CV is a SF to me. He wants nothing to do with the paint on either end of the floor.

    I agree with this^^it is defenitely time to give him some burn and see if hes worth keeping. This year should be all about figuring out what we have for the future, which in my mind means finding out if the kids can play and if not get rid of em. Im tired of keeping the same non playin kids on the bench year after year just to lose them to other teams and find out they can actually play.

    Charlie has been doing a lot more damage this year down low. He is also starting to defend better. I just don't think putting him on a SF is going to work out for us defensively. He is better but I think SF in this league would expose his weakness; quickness/foot speed.

    I agree with this. He's not a bully PF, but if he's having a hard time keeping in front of 4s, he won't have any luck guarding 3s. The only way I can see this work is if he's paired with someone like Summers or JMAX, where CV plays 3 on offense and 4 on defense, and Summers/JMAX play 4 on offense and 3 on defense.

    CV is at 26% inside attempts and Maxiell is 52%.

    Prince is 30% in the paint.
    Stuckey is 39% in the paint.
    Monroe 77%.
    Bynum 32%.

    Rip, Gordon, and Daye are the only ones who spend less time in there.

    It is only recently he started working down there. Not sure if that little floater just out side the paint would be considered inside?

    Because it has the word "little" in it, it doesn't count as being in the paint.
