During the regular season he would go long stretches without ever touching the ball. I hope they run the offense through him for the entire year. He's probably our best player now so let him have the ball.
hey friend, I do not mean to single you out here but it's a perfect example of a point I've been trying to make, so had to take this opportunity. I'm sorry for that.
the bolded statement - specifically comments such as "JI (insert latest rookie here) is our BEST player now, so give him the keys" is just so factually incorrect. on literally every measurable scale, this is not true ('potential' is not tangible).
JI doesn't have one skill that is better than anyone else on the team, let alone a combination. guys like Fournier, Vuc, AG, Simmons are all superior in every facet, not to mention the innate qualities you gain with experience.
I'm not for a second saying that JI is no good, but when you say comments like this and others like 'Briscoe will be our starting PG' - it's actually just infuriating because it's just completely unrealistic and more importantly simply untrue. it's naive or dumb - and I mean that with the greatest respect possible.
Fournier and Vuc are our best players right now. fact.
that's something that I think is better to deal with and try and accept, as it will lead to better discussion here.
P.S. this is coming from someone who hates buddy ball and wants Fournier/Vuc traded (assuming there's a market).
