Which one you would rather be the back up the rest of the season into the playoffs
Stuckey hands down. He needs to get as much experience as he can. If he faulters than Hunter could step in. Not much offense is expected from Lindsey, and he doesn't need much playing time to be able to contribute defensively for 10-12 min/game.
Stuckey. There's a 10% chance Lindsey will deliver, while Stuckey is more of a 50/50 guy. To clarify, when Stuckey delivers I say, "See, that's what he's capable of." When Lindsey delivers I say, "Even a broken clock is right twice a day."
Even when Stuckey is driving and throwing it off the backboard, at least he creates some chaos for the zoo crew to exploit. Lindsey will get playoff minutes though, like it or not.
I like Stuckey but, only time will tell whether or not he will get the rookie jitters. Dixon has been to the playoffs serveral times, and looking back on when the Wiz made it, he was very instrumental off the bench, plus, JD won the NCAA champioship during his senior season. With all things being equal, I think we are going to see Juan and Lindsay as we get deeper into the playoffs. I am envisioning Juan and Lindsay as the second coming of the pit bulls. I think Stuckey and Affalo will play some, but I feel that the bulk of the minutes will go to the vets unless Stuckey & Affalo find their shot and do it convincingly and consistently.
P.S. please don't underestimate JD's passing skills.
We need to see it to believe it.
Lindsey Hunter has playoff experience. We know what he is capable off. The opposition knows that he is a pest on defense. the others are UNK.
