The thing is, one way or another, in year 3, I was at least hoping to get a good idea of what Romeo can be. A good player, an OK or a bad player, at least we would know... right???.. I still have nothing more than a little idea..

Thanks Ime.

Blazers fans know about McMillan too. He has always been a mediocre coach. Dwaybe Casey won COTY once. See how Raptors fans view the man


To get back onto topic, it's strange that Udoka dropped Romeo from the rotation in January so suddenly. I get that no minutes are guaranteed and rotations are fluid throughout the year, but this decision is strange without any news of why. The only conspiracy like take that'd fit would be the Celtics keeping Romeo healthy for the trade deadline.

Udoka has been rolling with a 9 man rotation pretty much all year - unless it's a game we're really crippled by injuries/illness and he only rotates 8. 9 is pretty much the standard rotation in the NBA today..

We all know that 8 of the rotation guys (when everyone is healthy) are smart, rob, al, tatum, brown, schroder, j-rich and Grant.

kanter wasn't in the rotation for the first couple months. seems like kanter has replaced romeo. i don't know why, but....

-Kanter has played pretty good for the most part since being inserted into the rotation.
-romeo's shooting has cooled off after a hot start (he was around 40% from 3 early on, but that's dipped to 33%).
-Romeo has missed some games due to minor injuries and illness, whereas Kanter has been more durable/reliable this season
-Having Kanter in the rotation allows us to start both bigs (al and rob) and still be able to bring a big off the bench.
-Udoka likes his established, proven vets over young kids who are still developing. Romeo is the youngest guy on the team. kanter is one of the oldest

I'm guessing kanter getting mins over romeo is due to a combination of 1 or more of the above factors.

Hopefully not that long.

SChroder and Horford out!

I am really ok with Richardson, I am loving what he brings.

pg/sg/sf he can play ALL those positions, plays super hard, cuts and moves WITHOUT the ball and is shooting very well.

Romeo stinks. Nesmith stinks. Pritchard is a solid backup PG at best. Grant is a 10th man. Great parting gifts from Danny Ainge. His last good pick was Timelord. I give him credit for Tatum & Brown. That's obviously huge....but let's also not act like it was some incredible feat either. He had the #1 pick in the draft. And the #3 pick....you have a better chance of drafting someone really good in that position then not.

I forgot how long Richardson was out and the fact that December was a turnstyle for injuries/illness.

Looking at the game to game box scorea, Romeo is the 9th man and Udoka has been going with 8 if the team is healthy. Kanter shouldn't affect Romeo's minutes directly. At least not cut him out of the rotation seeing as the play drastically different positions. I don't think it's necessarily an age thing either. Romeo isn't constantly making detrimental mistakes.

He has only missed 7 out of 29 games before January. The guy is healthy now so it still doesn't make sense for his minutes to drop that hard so suddenly if Udoka wasn't trying to keep a tight 8 man rotation.
