Ross can’t win with y’all I swear lmao

There’s no world where Ross should play 27 minutes and only shoot the ball twice. I don’t think that’s debatable. His skill set is to get hot and provide bench scoring in bunches. You can’t score if you don’t shoot. Maybe this is how Moseley wants him to play, and I’m just not used to his new role, it very well could be, and if that’s the case, I still don’t agree with it. I think we’re not utilizing one of our best players properly and it’s hurting the team.

He scored 2 points and took only 2 shots in 27 minutes in a game where we struggled for offense. Why would that performance be worthy of winning with anyone?

They did double team him almost every time he had the ball.  We had some decent looks for three but shot under 30%.  That and 18 turnovers really hurt us.  Personally, I prefer for Ross to pass out of a double team and get a decent look for someone else, rather than forcing up a very low percentage shot.

Why the ***** is Suggs shooting these tough forced 3s against bigs on a switch when he's not even a competent catch and shoot guy? It's a failure of coaching to not cut this **** out. Doing **** you're bad at in games is not development.

Also just give me a Franz/Okeke/WCJ frontcourt for 30 mins a night already.

Lol! Welcome to live tv viewing! I totally agree on moving Chuma to the SL. Would love that move.

Exactly my point if he looked for his shot out of the double team and we lost the blame would’ve been on him regardless

There are a few players on this team that we should expect more from, and they’re the vets. Ross, Harris, Lopez, MCW and Moore. No one else on the team is older than 24. Lopez, MCW and Moore aren’t playing, and who knows if/when they will so their influence has to be felt in the locker room and at practice. Harris and Ross are getting minutes and both need to be better than they have been.

I don't want any of the vets playing, to be honest. Play the young guys and give them as much experience as possible. Playing the vets, who honestly aren't very good to begin with, isn't going to lead to drastically more wins, if any. This team isn't going to be competitive, literally the only thing that can be accomplished this season is growth for the young guys. To me, every second you give to a vet and/or player that won't be part of the future is a total waste of time. We've already blown a 9 year rebuild and had to start over, lets not do the exact same thing again.

It comes down to what the best way is to develop players.  Many think that a mix of vets and young players is the best approach, and helps avoid having the younger guys develop bad habits.  Also, to the extent the vets help the team stay competitive (not sure if that's the case with us), that also helps player development.  Nothing good comes out of getting blown out repeatedly.

I guess I just prefer time on the court as the way to develop them, instead of relying on mediocre veterans to provide a nearly insignificant boost. If we had guys like Afflalo or Battie, vets that maybe weren't all-star material but were good leaders and hard workers.....but I can't say our current vets fit that mold.
