    I understand the limitations of this particular situation and I would like to give Frank the benefit of the doubt, but he has done this all year.

    Having him sit from the 6 minute mark of the first until the last 6 of the 2nd isn't playing him in 5-6 minute spurts either. I can't imagine a nice long sit is what Kander is ordering. Maybe this is just a communication breakdown with Mike Abdenour sidelined.

    You misunderstood what I wrote. Frank said Drummond would not play more than 5-6 minutes at a time. He didn't say how long the intermission between stretches would last.

    Same coaches and trainers that played him in the very next game after he broke his back?

    That was either a mis-diagnosis or a completely idiotic decision. You don't mess with the franchise.

    Last night was the first time Frank's caution with Drummond was justified.

    Based on Franks record and his lack of developement with our team? I like my chances with 1%

    Lack of development? How many teams have 5 rookies (Singler, Drummond, Middleton, English, Kravtsov) and several other young guys (Knight, Monroe, Jerebko, etc.) playing this much?

    singler is the only one getting real time, Drum gets minimal time compared to output...and the middleton, english Krav are getting a few minutes then they get dnps for a few games. That is not what I would call getting youngsters any real developement....they cant even get a rythm. Also, the developement I was reffering to is the " non developement" of our last 3 lottery picks.
    The team is young, and in dire need of direction. Can you honestly say that it would appear any member of the team is actually getting better?
