Maybe because you cherry picked the data by removing the 2 games that he was most positive? The records of those teams is comparable to our record. It's not like we're too good for them and those were practice scrimmages for us. Facts: We play losing basketball when he's in the game. We play losing basketball when he's on the bench. Better players than him have worse +/-'s this season, like Andre Drummond, Siva, Jerebko, and Mitchell. He's +13 in our last 4. Does that mean he suddenly got good again? I'll let the coach make my case for me: So, Cheeks seems to like his consistency, effort level, floor spreading abilities, fast break threat, defensive ability, and defensive versatility (guarding multiple positions). Cheeks reportedly told Pope that he wants him to emulate his game after Singler's. Why do these horrible coaches like this guy so much? Why hasn't their quant departments or scouts informed them of how bad he is? Why doesn't Dumars trade him to take away the option to incorrectly play him from the coach's arsenals? Mysteries abound. It wouldn't be too surprising to see Kyle crack the starting rotation in the next month.
