Mitch McGary will more likely steal Perk's minutes by the end of the season than Nicks.  Adams starter McGary and Nick 2nd unit bigs.

Remember when Nate Robinson was our secret weapon to counter JJ Barrea in that playoff game?

Sign Barrea and let him be the PG for the 2nd group and Reggie the starting 2.

Watching the 2000 nba finals right now. The Lakers had Shaq and Kobe but they also signed Rick Fox, Glen Rice, Ron Harper and Robert Horry. All of those guys were very important others who signed to win a championship and all made huge plays. The Lakers went to 7 games vs Portland and 6 against the Pacers in the finals. They would not have won a championship that year without those others. My point, KD and Russ need more. Our others got crushed in most of their summer league games. We need better others if we want to win. The Heats others were not as god this year and that's why they didn't win.

What will Rondo get in free agency next offseason?  He's beem injury prone and it sounds like he's not a favorite of his coaches.

It wouldn't be that hard for them to make a comparable shoe to what Nike is putting out there.  If KD had signed with UA UA would have come out with a much better shoe than what they currently have.

I agree.  Nike almost has a monopoly on the shoe market.  They need some competition.

Championship rotation...

Start with

Russ, Reggie, KD, Serge, Steven

5 minutes left in the first Nick comes in for Steven and Morrow for Reggie

Russ/Morrow/KD/Serge/Nick

2:30 left in the first PJ comes in for Serge

Russ/Morrow/PJ/KD/Nick

2nd quarter start Reggie, Morrow, Lamb, PJ, Collison

5 minutes into the 2nd Russ for Morrow, Serge for Nick and KD for PJ

Russ/Reggie/Lamb/KD/Serge

6 minutes in Adams for Lamb

Finish the half with Russ/Reggie/KD/Serge/Steven

Somebody is playing really well they play more.  Someone is playing poorly they play less.

I hope Adams is the starter and McGary with the 2nd group before the year is over. Will mean McGary has proven he can play.

Well that's not going to happen. This teams best lineup includes Reggie.  Just thinking about trying to get him into the starting lineup to strengthen that group.

Haha woops.  Perk I'm guessing will be with first group.

Reggie would play just like he did in the playoffs with the first group.  The recurring theme seems to be that he wants to be a starter.

Better overall team...

1st - Russ/Reggie/KD/Serge/Adams

(have Reggie go out of the game with 5 or 6 minutes left in the first quarter and get replaced by Lamb or PJ or Morrow and then come back in and replace Russ after the first quarter.)

2nd group - Lamb, Morrow, PJ, COllison, Adams

or

Russ/Roberson/KD/Serge/Adams

Reggie/Morrow/PJ/Collison/Adams

You could do the first option and still have either Russ or Reggie in at all times if you sub right.

He's not ever going to be an all-star.  There are a bunch of PG's in the east and west much better. 

He's going to beat out Russ/Paul/Conley/Lawson/Lillard etc... in the West and Rose/Irving/Wall/Rondo etc in the East.  He's an average at best PG in this league as a starter.

Was referring to the Bolts article where the guy from Dime said he would be looking to get a similar deal to Hayward and Parsons.  I've seen others as well.

He's a better PG.  Jackson is a better scorer.  Rubio is a way better passer and defender.

How come so many national writers are oblivious to the fact that because of a lack of talent at certain positions those positions get overpaid? Jackson won't get what Hayward and Parsons got because he's a PG and there are a bunch of really good PG's in the league.  There are 4 better than him that will be free agents next summer (Rondo, Bledsoe, Rubio and Dragic).

Just from far away it seems like KD is different than he was even a few years back. It use to be all about the basketball. That doesn't seem like that's his primary thing anymore. He's so into everything now. I think that's the one affect JZ may have had on him. Not going at what's just in front of him (basketball) and pursuing more world around him. If he goes East I don't think it's to go back to his roots. I think it's to be closer to the glitz and glamor. Lebron went through that too though and then realized there were more important things. I could def be wrong too.

Ok what's your point. The D League has helped these guys whether you want to admit it or not. The Thunder are using it as a minor league and it has served that purpose well for those players.

Reggie was playing better before Russ got hurt. He has continued to progress but he was playing well before Russ was injured.

The Thunder have used the D League to help bring these players along to where they are now ready to be nba rotational players. Were they good enough to be rotation players then? No. Are they now ? Yes. The D League played a part in their progression. It's not going to make a bad shooter a great one but it will get an inexperienced player some experience and allow guys like PJ and Lamb to work on their defense in a game setting. It will allow a guy like Reggie Jackson to get more comfortable getting to the hole in a game setting. It has done what it was suppose to do for these guys. It doesn't mean it's fixed all of their problems but it has been a good part of the process.
