- Julius is better with the ball in his hands when he's the hub of the ball going around. Most of you think how he's being utilized isn't good, but his game and everyone else's game is predicated on how the shots are going to be distributed. His ESP with Bullock was the catalyst of how he gets the ball to the open shooters. Right now, he's trying to get that ESP going with Fournier and it's been up and down. Fournier's role will have to be adjusted to have him be more comfortable with pull up shooting and catch and shooting because his indecisiveness with how to attack a set defense is holding the offense back.
- Walker is being asked to do the "less is more" with Julius on the court, and I believe it's hurting his concentration on playing off the ball more. His job should simply be the attacking PG he's always been, but he's been too tentative with his dribble penetration and I believe its about his knee still not being right. While he should take more 3's, he should be spraying out passes when he gets deep in the paint instead of forcing up shots with a bigger defender in his face. He's been too up and down, and its hurting the offense as a result.
- RJ has been the most polarizing of the starters. He started the season on a hot note, but the last 7 games, he's been on a huge cold streak. I don't know what is making him be too unbalanced with his scoring. Few games he's shooting 45% FG and 40% 3PT, and the next few games he's shooting like basura. I just believe he needs to be the 1 man fast break, create contact in the paint so he can get more free throws. Using the FT line can get his shot going. Also, what's up with the refs not giving him calls when he attacks the basket and getting hacked? Does he need to get busted open to get a foul call?
Right now, this team is up and down, but I don't think bringing in Walker and Fournier is a mistake, but they need to get this right and soon. What do y'all think?
