Have to absolutely disagree with you. I don't think any player has ever EARNED playing time with Flip. Flip is obsessive/compulsive. He has a view of reality in his head, and nothing he sees will change what he believes. He is the George Bush of the NBA. Once Flip makes up his mind about about a player, nothing can change it. So, when Flip brought in Evans to be his backup 2, nothing was going to change it. When Flip decided Darko was a bust, nothing was going to change it. And when Flip brought in Murray to be his backup 2 nothing is going to change that. So, no matter how much better Delfino has looked than Murray, Murray will continue to play over him, because in Flip's mind, Murray is better. The only reason Delfino is even playing now, is because Joe probably flipped out (pun intended) when he read McCoskey's piece about Delfino being taken out of the rotation. Nobody earns pt with Flip. Murray was given it, and Delfino was ordered to play.
