anorexorcism's friend has some valid points. i commend him for speaking his mind in a very classy way.

a quote from the article. this is exactly what happened to drose.
this was what, 6th game in like 40+ days for drose?
I think I misread this the first time, are you saying Rose was not in game shape like everyone else so his minutes really should have been monitored? That could actually havea lot of substance to it.
On TNT they were talking about this, getting into game shape, and how you can't do it, it just comes eventually from playing (this wasn't about Rose).
So I can't speak to what limits Rose had or should have had, but, yes, that's actually something worth asking for sure.
i wouldve liked to see drose play 30 minutes and build his conditioning and confidence in the first round.
it was clear (at least to me) that drose could used some light playing time to build up his stamina and get the chemistry back with his teammates. there really was no need to stress his body and play him 40 minutes in his 6th game in over 40 days.
and there is rip and boozer. rip played 27 minutes with no appearance in the 4th and boozer also played 27 minutes with 3 in the 4th. i dont know if thibs is preserving them for the future or he just likes to go with his bench in the clutch.
drose's minutes shouldve been limited to 32 per game at least in the first round. just my opinion
