    To early to make that judgement .think back.....other examples....i remember S Pippen's first season.....he wasnt setting the world on fire either......BUT if he would not have played and gained experience.....it is likely the bulls would not have been as sucessful

    Don't get me wrong. If Oly plays and stinks, we get a better draft pick.

    If he doesn't play and we win, well, we win.

    It's a win, win, either way.

    BCSP, you cannot be comparing KO to Scottie Pippen?

    There is something to the concept of slowly bringing along a rookie allowing him to watch the game.  KO will become a fine NBA player but every minute he plays and Hump sits, that's a minute of tanking.

    Hump will probably be gone by the trade deadline anyway so then KO will be ready to step in for the balance of the season.  In the meantime, he'll have ample time to see the game and get some minutes but we all know KO is playing because winning isn't our priority right now.

    petey...no comparison.....i was attempting to make the point there is value in giving playing time to rookies........pippen got playing time....and his production just about doubled year over year.....play them and you might just develop them.....dont play them..might as well trade them 

    developing players is the Cs priority right now...or did i miss something

    Hmm I think we're much better when our competition is mediocre. 

    Also Bass had one of his rare decent games, if Bass had played like crud as he often does, you might not be posting this tonight.

    Not sure if you are more interested in winning meaningless games this season but I'm more interested in player development. Bass is right up against his ceiling, we have no idea what KOs ceiling is yet and if you think you do then that is ridiculous. 

    Plus, KOs presence keeps runrunrun from posting his racial diatribes here so that's a huge bonus. :)

    They are not small sample numbers.

    Olynyk is a rookie and he is not very good so far.
