Saric is not athletic but is smart and can work well next to CP3. It is worth to try it.
Ayton would play more minutes with the second unit and he will get more shots.
Crowder is not a problem in the first unit because he is low usage guy and a very good defender. But yeah, we can start Cam over him and I would not hate the move.
Crowder is the problem. He’s trash. Always has been. All he does is shoot 3s. He’s a bad passer. Bad ball handler. Can’t create for himself or others. Defense is suspect. Bench him and Paul. Start Payne and Saric next to Ayton. This team will start winning
You might actually be a crazy person with some of the wild ideas here. Look, I love Payne and Saric, but neither should start.
and I don't think you've actually watched Jae Crowder, because he's a very good passer at the PF spot, handles the ball okay (not spectacular), creates plenty and his defense is all around solid even if it's not spectacular.
I get it, you're frustrated, but Crowder isn't the problem.
Crowder is not good in the starting lineup so yes he is a problem. Not the only problem but a problem. So when I said suns would lose to wizards before the game started I was crazy right but when it actually happened now what? When I said the team only shoots 3s I was crazy right. When they showed you against the wizards that was true now what? The problem with the suns offense is CP3 is slow, Ayton and Booker aren’t getting enough touches and they shoot too many 3s. How do you solve that?
I know CP3 isn’t getting benched. I’m not an idiot. But he should be.
Realistic changes for the better of the team is to pull mikal or crowder or both from the starting lineup. I think mikal and Jae will play the same off the bench and think Ayton will step it up if they are on the bench.
You can’t put Cam for crowder because him and bridges will do more damage to Booker and ayton getting touches. You can’t put bridges on the bench for cam because you lose defense and still take away touches from Book and DA.
A prudent coach like Pop, Spo even brad Stevens or Doc would know you need your number 1 and 2 option to lead the team in shot attempts not your 3D wing and his backup. Bridges is playing well but at the cost of Booker and Ayton. It’s not worth it.
Nader is tough nose and plays hard. Give him no more than 8 minutes a game but let him start to get your big and all star more looks. Nader can also hit the open 3.
If you don’t want mikal out then crowder gotta go. Need more facilitators and Saric facilitates.
Cp3, Booker, bridges, saric, Ayton or Cp3, Booker, Nader, crowder Ayton
