I also don't know why Witt sat Vesely in the second half as he was basically having his best game of the year. Although I thought the starting line-up was going to suck tonight, it was the best unit that we had out there tonight. I don't know why Witt did not go back to it at the end. Instead, he stuck with Seraphin who was getting abused on the boards (He had 0 rebounds tonight) and Singleton, who didn't even play until the 4th quarter. It was just bizarre.
However, the bottom line is that this team sucks because of Ernie. It cracks me up when Glenn Consor talks about this team going cold offensively. No, a team goes "cold" once in a while. When a team goes "cold" EVERY night, it is because the team lacks shooters and scorers. The Wiz are not going cold,they are just an offensively inept team, period and Ernie built the team that way.
Yes it was truly bizarre. Ves was having a good game. Crawford has been their best PG since Wall got injured and it is taking forever for them to realize it.
Price puts up decent numbers sometimes but he sucks leading the team. He is the player I least like on the team. It kills me that he is getting so many minutes. So far, he looks like he is better used as a small SG who can help handle the ball some. That is more his mind set then PG.
They should be starting Crawford at PG which is the biggest mistake. He is playing very solid this year and he is their best ball handler, shot creator, and driver. He makes his FTA. Put the ball in his hands, find the hot hand at SG between Beal, Martin and Webster. Honestly, I have no problem with them not starting Beal right now. Kid has a lot of learn. He defends well. He always seems to be focused on that part of his game. Bring him off the bench and let him focus on driving more then shooting from the outside. Get him to the line. We need more FTAs.
Trevor A has been a pleasant surprise. The kid is long. Defends well and is decent at everything else like passing, shooting, fast break. Not great at any of those things be when coupled with his defense, he has proven he should be the starting SF.
Ves should be the starting PF. He is active, tall and has good basketball IQ. And he has upside so give him the burn and let him develop.
Okafor is showing signs of slowing down but he is still solid. If your not leaning on him to be an offensive threat, he can score pretty well when he lets the game come to him.
Booker is a good energy rebounder when he isn't trying to score to much.
Singleton can be useful but he has to get in the flow earlier. You can just bring him in late in the forth. He isn't that kind of player.
My starting line up and rotation would probably be
If Kevin is stinking up the joint, bring in Barron. I mean how does a 6-9 275 athetic kid get zero rebounds and zero FTAs. He is playing like a big Psy.
If Martin is clanking, move Webster to SF or give Booker a look there.
Singleton or Booker
Serpahin or Barron
Randy is making this much harder then it needs to be. Why he insists on playing Price 31 minutes is baffling.
And with Martin sinking the place up tonight, why didn't he try Webster at SG. Martin was shooting the ball short all night. After he was 0-5 from 3 land, sit his ass down. Its not his night.
Randy coached like an idiot. These guy have been in most the games. At what point is it not simply the players but the combination he has our there and how he is running the offense.
