When his role is limited to being a defender he's actually a capable backup. Now if you rely on him on offense like we did you're in trouble.

Bingo.

And that's basically all we are asking Malcolm to do. He's fine for that role.


And that's what I have a problem with, why limit Lee's ceiling but give Shved a all star ceiling? We aren't a top 4 team so we don't have the luxury of putting our hopes on potential right now. Shved can pass the ball better so he should come off the bench so he can create easier shots for the others or chuck it if he wants to. If Lee had Shveds awkward looking fading three, every time he'd miss people would want him to sit.

Shved > Manu

Lee > Wade

If you've read the TrueHoop blog on ESPN for a little while, you may have read one of the guys (Adande? Not sure) talking about royal jelly. It's the thing in bee hives that worker bees feed the larva that's going to become a queen. Turns out this has an analog in basketball. Some players (the ones that have a special knack that others don't) receive special attention in practice, feature rolls in the game plan, and the in-game coaching decisions are structured around them. This allows that natural spark to get brighter, and sometimes the conditions are right and a star is born.

I love Malcolm Lee's game, and I'm so stoked he's hitting his jumpers. When he first started practicing with the team, a lot of talk coming out of practices was that he could shoot better than expected, so I thought it might be a matter of time. But Shved has that swagger that can come out, and that's a special thing. He really could become a legit closer in this league.

It takes a special player for Adelman to trust him to close games as a rookie.

The thing about Lee offensively is that he is depending on what others set him up, unlike Shved.

I agree, Lee has shown that he can be VERY aggressive finisher, better than DWill. If he keeps improving he'd be just as good as Shved at it. But since Shved can create himself like you say he doesnt need Rubio to make things easier for him, so why have them both on the floor?I remember that the problem with having Tyreke here was him being too ball dominant so the ball will be out of Rubio's hands too much. If Shved was performing like Kobe at end of game situations I'd be fine with him out there. But with Shveds lack of defense I'd take Lee with Rubio (The Creater) in at the end of games.

I know what you mean about Shveds swagger but it only really comes out through his outside dribble before he pulls up for a 3.whenever he does make a nice place he has the same expression on his face.I want him to show some emotion after a good play.right now he has a dribble swag.that dunk by Lee is the swag I want to see out of our guys.

not sure if the link worked but its Lee Dunking on Tyrus Thomas
