My viewpoint is close to Jammertimes (Don't sacrifice the season but give the kids a chance)... I think everyone wants the youth to play more but what is up for debate is the amount of time and how many players. Let's start with a couple facts... the more PT for young players = less PT for the vets. Less experience = more mistakes... T.O.'s, bad shot selection, missed assignments, rushing plays etc (each player has different levels). More mistakes lowers the chances of winning. IMO, the right way to go about this is phase them in gradually... meaning Blalock, Amir, Brahma & Delfino don't all get significant minutes to start with... this preseason is important in determining which players deserve the majority of bench minutes to start with. If given a fair chance they should play themselves into or out of the rotation.... also depending on how the vets perform... if Dice looks like he's slowing down then Maxiel gets more PT. I'm ok with Amir & Blalock starting the season in the D-League so that Delfino & Brahma don't have to look over their shoulder for the first few months... If they're not getting it done (defense is a big factor) then give someone else a shot. At this point I'm not sure that our youngsters are better than what other teams have coming off the bench (you know all the teams with better draft selections and proven bench players).
