@noodles480 Just calling it as I see it. Any yeah Bird was just average. Are you kidding? I am entitled to my opinion as are you. Do I think Cole has a role on this team? Probably not but if anything we need to continue to develop him and use him as trade bait. And if Perk has no skill then why is he a starter in the NBA and his injury widely considered the reason why the Celts couldn't beat the Lakers in the finals a couple of years ago? Sounds like I'm not the only one with a prejudice. I was only poking fun at how Cole reacts on the sidelines whenever we hit a 3...yeah he looks like a fool but it keeps the team lighthearted to see one of their guys getting excited about the game even though we doesn't see meaningful minutes. My reply to this article was to say that the stats that he puts up are in meaningless minutes in games and don't show his talents or his flaws. Put him in against the Andrew Bynum's and Dwight Howard's of the world and then compare his numbers to Perk and Nazr. But they aren't that great either.

Please take in to account that Cole plays against the other teams' end of the bench players as well. He's averaging 10 rebounds per 36 minutes against players that don't see the floor until it's garbage time. Not to mention how awkward he can be on the floor at times. He always seems to be on the floor and it's not because he is diving for a loose ball or taking a charge. I don't see the benefit of giving him minutes at this point in the season either. It's getting down to crunch time as we head to playoffs and as we already know with Scott Brooks, he isn't going to disrupt his rotation. Which means Cole will continue to occupy his seat on the bench cheering and acting a fool when we hit a 3 pointer; where he needs to be.
