Players like Davis should be developed into the role you invision them filling down the road and for Ed that's and energy big off the bench who can give you 15-20 mins .
You don't think Ed Davis has surpassed that energy role by now? This isn't last year. The guy has shown that he can score in the post, and knows how to make smart passes. His next step is to develop his game in the post. Let him do it.

There is no earthly reason you should be averaging an astonishing 5.5 three point attempts per game while shooting less than 35% from three -AND- averaging fewer than 25 MPG. You average more attempts in fewer minutes while shooting a worse percentage from three than players like OJ Mayo, Jason Kidd, Jamal Crawford, Brandon Jennings, Joe Johnson, etc.
What does this mean? It means, Alan Anderson, that the moment you enter the game, you just start chucking threes. You are a chucker. You are Nick Young (23 MPG, 3.3 3-PT attempts, 38%) on steroids. All day, every day, you're chucking. Contested, uncontested, doesn't matter, you're shooting it. Even though you are no better than an average three point shooter, you are still throwing away offensive possessions with your own shot attempts like this. It hurts your team, Alan Anderson, but even as I type this I know you won't stop doing it nor will you ever be reigned in by an incompetent coaching staff that has seemingly endorsed this practice.
I preemptively congratulate you on the 40 mil / 4 years contract you will sign with Toronto this off-season. Clearly a promising young, 30 year-old prospect such as yourself will be worth the investment.

Really what else is a coach to do?
Which 2 wings on the current roster would you play in late game situations?

It is very disheartening to read such rambling. Look at his stats for s*** sake, he's the worse chucker in the league right now. (Dead serious)

damn he even makes less than Alabi (did before)
Yea but he thinks hes a super star, do you not see the problem? D-league king goes on bad nba +chucks away for like average numbers+ fans praising fools gold, thinking hes actually a good player= BC overpaying for a below average nba player
I don't agree with you at all... He plays more consistent than any wing player we have. I rather have him shooting 3s than anyone else on the roster. Besides, how much he shoots and how much he's allowed to do on the floor is the coach's call. You really think he's doing what he's being just because he thinks he's a super star?

Every one of our players we have right now are limited. Amir and Ed have been great, but you can't give them the ball and tell them to get points.
DD is being treated as a number option unfairly because he just doesnt have the skills when the def. gets tight.
So basically, if a team can limit our pnr, we are left to 2 players (Lowry and Anderson) to get points.
However, Anderson is the least of our problems. We've hit a losing streak because the level of competition has gotten better and our def. has gotten a lot worse.
Any team with a big with pulse is having their way against us.

This, some of AA's shots should be Demar's but maan he can't even create his own shots. You'll noticed first quarter of every game he'll get his numbers then banish for the rest of the game. Btw it's not all about the stats it's how you impact the game and DD can't impact the game as much as AA did. When we needed to score AA showed up, if we want defensive stops AA brought that. He'll also do the dirty work for you. DD on the other hand every time he shoots it expect the ball bounced off the rim and he'll chucked it every chance he gets it(I'm not talking about 1 or 2 games. This are all of his games). Even if he made the bucket the timing were off it's either we are up by 10+ or we are down by 20. In crunch time, you really can't rely on him. He is the most anti-clutch player I've seen considering he is "our guy", contract he signed and the minutes he was getting.
p.s. Watch Demar Derozan he'll ask for a pick, dribble for like 5 secs looking for a easy open straight line drive(which is very rare from a good teams), then he'll pass it to someone else. Or he'll dribble off the curl shoot it. He'll "Clunk" it for you. I promise you this lol

AA is getting minutes and allowed to shoot because DD's brutal and Casey/BC are trying to win games so they save can there jobs .
Every team has volume scorers but for some reason the stats kids on this board fall in love with the low usage high eff guys like somehow if we can spread the ball around enough we'll have 10 guys who will be score at a high eff rate on low volume . This theory doesn't work in practice and that's why our offense stalls in the 2nd half .
DD ususally gets his points early in games when defenses are playing loose , as the games goes along and defenses get tighter he disappears . His D is brutal and i'd much rather sit him in the 4th and go with AA/Ross who play solid D and can spread the floor .
The only argument that can be made is that his mins should go to Ross because DD's still gets his touches even if he's not taking the shot .
