+1. Plus, I do not think rookies should be handed things either. Follow your coach's assignments and directives, if you do not, go sit on the bench. I love how JV approaches to this developing young guns issue, his primary concern is to avoid shaping rookies to an undesirable mold.
Same with Drew. You want more minutes? I do not care about your offense, you will do fine there. Just do not be a unmotivated stiff while defending and do not have mental lapses, and you will get more minutes.
+2. I don't think JV is as anti rookie as SVG was but I think reverse is right in this aspect plus we aren't exactly shooting up the standings. It's better that the kid gets burned in practice and berated during film instead of looking like a fool in a real game and losing confidence.
With all that being said, I can't stand McRoberts.
