Gasol off the bench again for the 3rd game 

Post#1 » by nitrous » Wed Feb 13, 2019 10:58 pm

This is getting very frustrating. Masai should have traded Ibaka instead of JV since JV was fine coming off the bench.

How can we possibly expect to be a contending team if our "big 3" is really a big 2 starters + 1 bench? The NBA now has teams with a big 4 and even big 5 (GSW). We are now bringing our second highest paid player off the bench to play a role almost identical to bench JV.

Update: Does not look like Marc enjoys coming off the bench.

Does this idiot think we traded for him to be a glorified bench JV?

Exactly, Gasol could be scoring 20+ if he started.

It's only game number 3. I don't think Gasol has even had a full practice with the Raptors yet. Let's maybe put those pitchforks back in the closet for now.

This is getting stupid. If it's still an acclimation process, then thats one thing.

If this idiot really thinks he's going to utilize Gasol as a 2nd unit scorer, then he's making a massive mistake

I'm going to give Nurse a pass on tonight but if he doesn't start Gasol after the break...I'm going to be really pissed.

Perhaps he’s waiting for game 81 before he starts Gasol?

It’s only a matter of time before he gets fired. Masai said in his presser he thought Marc would play with the starters. We may have to wait until the offseason but nick will be fired. There’s no way Masai isn’t pissed about this.

So Ibaka won't be benched after putting up 18 points, 12 rebounds, 2 blocks, 2 steal, 0 turnovers on 69% shooting in 25 minutes. Crazy. Maybe it's time for the Raptors to consider firing Nick Nurse. Obviously, he's not the man for the job.

What will happen is guys will say they’re not coming back if nick is still coaching. That will be the end of him.

Gasol is not some buyout FA or a washed up former All star who is way passed his prime. Nurse is delaying the process of establishing chemistry with the starters. Every game counts! The earlier Gasol is inserted to the starting 5, the more time the starters get to figure it out and the more time Ibaka will accept and get acclimated to his bench role! Come on Nurse!
