Great idea to keep committing the same mistakes over and over.
Especially when you are bashing the players we’ve applied this approach to previously.

You mean currently, not previously.
I think there are two camps:
Camp A: (seemingly championed by fats), has never really given him a chance despite showing random flashes of brilliance and have been down on him from the start. MKG Love Dome members have co-residency in Camp A for some unknown reason. It appears that the colossal failure that was the MKG Experiment has made some members overly critical towards other draftees for some unknown reason.
Camp B: cautiously optimistic post-draft, but wary of his physical limitations, expected him to be a big time shooter/sparkplug/microwave/super-sub type of player. Slowly but surely soured on him over time as his production has not improved and his attitude seems less than desirable.
At the end of the day, every player taken should be considered a vacuum selection. Giving MKG way more time than he needed to prove himself doesn't mean we should (or should not) do the same for Monk. At some point, the team leadership needs to become better at internal scouting and know when to cut loss on missed picks. Re-signing exceedingly mediocre draft picks (MKG, Cody, Biz kind of) has a large part to do with the house of pain the team has currently built themselves.
It doesn't seem like Monk has the talent, or frankly, the **** to improve. I hope he proves me wrong this year but I had higher hopes for him prior to. If he doesn't show anything noteworthy soon. I'm cool with shipping him out at the first opportunity
