    Sorry... I assumed that I was censoring myself. I didn't realize that was wrong.

    Sometimes a big F-Bomb is the only way to describe Rodney S(t)uckey

    Would that be "free throw," "failure," "fall," "floor," "force," or "Frank"?

    Knight's tryout at sg is the most important thing going on right now. He's looking good on both ends of the court. Consistency isn't essential yet at his age. He's more trustworthy at the 2 so far and his mission is simpler. The pg stint has helped make him a better sg than he would have been otherwise.

    Monroe just has a good motor for his laid back off court personality. He's a little like love in the paint.

    Knight is still our 2nd best point guard, and as such should be running our 2nd unit, not Bynum. Stuckey, in this system, has no role.

    Knight started the game ok, but struggled in his role as shooting guard much of the game.

    Here is a rotation that uses Knight just as a backup point guard. If it does not work out, hey, you can always pair up Knight with Calderon.

    Calderon, English, Middleton, Kravtsov, Monroe start.

    Knight, Singler, JJ, JMAX, (Monroe or Kravtsov playing some with 2nd unit.)

    This drops four guys out of the rotation or reduces theirs roles. JMAX, because he is simply too short in so many defensive rebounding situations and protecting the basket situations. Stuckey, simply because of numbers ahead of him at point guard, and he can't shoot a lick as a shooting guard. (He would be a good emergency guard though.) CV, just because he absolutely can't play D. And Bynum, because in so many instances the other team exploits how short he is.

    Note, I do have JJ in the backup small forward slot, but I imagine Middleton can play 40 minutes so JJ would not have a major role.

    In what universe do you think Middleton can play 40 mpg at an NBA level?

    I don't think he meant 40 minutes per game. He meant 40 minutes for the rest of the year. He has played 94 minutes in the first 62 games, so there is no reason to think he couldn't keep up that pace and play another 40 minutes in the final 20 games.

    Having Stuckey as a good emergency guard is like having a screen door raft on the Titanic.

    If we're going nautical, then he's sort of our anchor.

    "Big," of course, being a relative term...

    This Big Three would do better, especially in the playoffs.

    In what universe does CV get to play NBA ball, or JJ play power forward in the NBA. That one.

    I hope Joe uses the amnesty on CV this summer. JJ still hasn't come back to his pre-injury form. We are on the hook for another 2 years of JJ at $4.5 million per. He needs to contribute something.

    I'm not sure Jerebko can ever contribute enough to overcome not having a position. He doesn't create enough of a(any?) mis-match when he plays the 4. Maybe it could work with Drummond?

    Pre-injury Jerebko: Dude "created a problem" by out-hustling opposing PFs and being too big and strong for opposing SFs. He had the quickness to check smaller players.

    Post Injury Jerebko: He's starting to turn into Austin Daye with a weak jumper. I like the kid and hope he finds his game again. I still think he can be a solid hustle-board guy off the bench against certain matchups. I'd like to see him piss-off other teams like Andres Nocioni used to (back when he was good).
