Maybe Oklahoma City?
(this is us complaining in 100 years)
"sure is dark in here. why don't they offer league pass underground?"
There is always the option of Stuckey going back to the bench too. This is an option better than small ball. But Stuckey is our most solidly built of the three guards in discussion. Did anyone see how he stood his ground against Howard for a moment on an offensive rebound situation for Howard? The guy has a lot of size and strength, easily the most capable of replacing the toughness that CB use to give us.
Still, moving Stuckey back to the bench does solve the problem and let our established stars continue to start. Further, Stuckey can surely be the first sub in, and still play a good 34 minutes per game.
No, I do think Rip should come off the bench, not Stuckey nor AI, but hey, I would accept it as a great leap up from small ball.
You're right, I forgot that option.
Thinking about that makes me realize how Stuckey just won the job. If he would have been shaky over the last few weeks, then benching him would be a distinct possibility right now. But as it stands, it doesn't seem like something that MC would dream of. So we got that going for us, which is nice.
The more I think about this situation, the more I sympathize with MC.
I'm wondering if this isn't a job for Dumars since most of the problem lies with future player happiness level, wilingness to re-sign, market reputation, and other intangibles. Curry should worry about putting the best team on the court, and JD should worry about the long-term.
I think you empathize with MC, not sympathize with him. He's making $7.5 million just for hanging out with guys that are playing a game. I don't think you feel sorry for him, do you?
I pitty the fool.
I like the picture on the front page.
IIRC, Sheed missed everything on the shot, lol
P.A., we PWNED the Magic. Sheed sonned Howard again.
Wasn't that fun?
We just gotta believe.
i forgot to mention that in the game thread...he also bodied up turk on a fast break and prevented an easy basket by holding his ground...something AA had trouble with - both guards are 6'5" and AA is a solid defender, but stuckey is a little stronger and can hold his ground better (ideally they aren't assigned to guard those players, but it happens on possessions from time to time).
The benefits of having a big PG.
You mean, like Chauncey Billups?
Or Stuckey. Very similar in this respect.
6'5" for Stuck and just as strong as CB.
orlando had 11 3-pointers and 30 points in the paint (63 points) plus 9 FTs for a total of 72 of their 82 points. that means they only made 5 2-point jumpshots all game. very weird offense.
Stuckey isn't 6'5". I saw a picture of him standing next to Amir and there was like 8 inches separating them.
but amir is like 7'7" so that makes stuckey 6'11", which is great size for a PG
If you're calling it 8 inches, it was probably more like 6.
Quote of the day.
ouch!!! judges ruling???keep the gloves up fellas
That's a fair shot.
Bill stepped into it.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog.
