I doubt we need to worry about this though since I don't think the Nets are in the running, he has more to offer other teams and Marks has bigger plans with the tools at his disposal.
he isnt worthless as a 15th man. like i said, if we want him, cut blake. but we already have a corpse there
Team will only play about 8 guys in the playoffs anyway, the rest of the roster are cheerleaders/injury insurance. Sorry but I just can't agree Blake and LaMarcus having no place on the roster when as soon as a week ago guys like TLC and Roberson were getting minutes.
I'm a skeptic of how much Blake has left but would lol if he started off tomorrow with a dunk.
TLC only plays if Kyrie is out. he isnt in the rotation.
Kyrie, KD, Harden, Harris, DJ
TJ, Shamet, Brown, Green, Claxton
Thats your 10 guys getting playoff minutes.
TLC, Roberson, Blake, Chiozza, Shumpert. you need to dump 1 of those 5 to add Aldridge.
TLC has a role. he provides catch and shoot if harris or shamet went down.
Chiozza has a role. we dont have a bench ball handler if TJ got hurt. thats minor but its stil a role
Shamet/Roberson are your defensive specialists. even if its one possesion, you want 2 tenacious defenders situationally if it was 1 possesion at the end of a playoff game. they are insurance for eachother
Which leaves blake. its blake or aldridge, not both. Aldridge provides nothing we dont already get from green or blake.
