    Why can't JJJ play minutes for this team??

    I don't get why we can't make time for this kid somewhere. He hasn't been bad with the minutes he has gotten. Do we always have to start Ray, Kevin and Paul every night. Did we not think there would be a problem with two OT games and a back to back with a fresh 76ers team? Oh yes and I'm not a Rondo hater but his last two games do not equal his by line from the Knicks game. He still is way inconsisitent for a 6 year point guard.

    I wish they would play J3 more as well. And I hope he doesn't wind up like another AJ, giving his best years to another team. The light is still on awaiting his partnering w/ Big AL...Are you a Terp?

    I would try him at the 3. I think he is quick enough to play it.

    i said at the beginning of the season that Doc should rest members of the big 3 throughout the season. his recent decision to shorten the lineup is SO DUMB. im sorry, i love the guy, but what are you doing?? these guys are old, and despite the fact that we are playing well, it doesnt mean raise their minutes. 

    Tim Duncan is still very effective bc Popovich has done a masterful job of limiting his minutes, keeping him fresh. for this reason, come playoff time Tim will be ready to go. for some reason doc refuses to play the young legs, and leans on his vets way too much. 

    IMO, every 3 games one of the big 4 should take a game off or have extremely limited minutes (20 min night). this keeps legs fresh and ready for the long hall!

    JJJ should start on a night like last night.  Doc knew they would be exhausted, get JJJ out there let him shoot and see what happens. This team is way to stuck in what has worked the last four seasons.  It is not working now and DA and Doc need to try the new guys on back to backs and see where it gets us.   We saw five times on back to backs this year the horses have nothing to give on these nights. Take a chance next time Doc.

    What do you base he is stiff on?  He sure looks athletic to me.

    This is my main issue with Doc. Too set in his ways, too reliant on the vets. What did he have to loose in a game like last night by playing the bench? Everybody knew the starters were gassed before the game started.
    Don't get it. But then, I'm not an NBC coach.

    you can be athletic and stiff at the same time. Jeff Green is the kinda guy thats big enough to play the 4, but athletic enough to play the 3. same with Durant. JuJuan is an athletic BIG, but is too stiff to play a position like the 3. playing the 3 requires your body to be able to shift fast to stay with your man, while having the ball handling and awareness to handle the offensive responsibilities. JJJ does not have this. he is an average ball handler (all you need to be at the 4 position). watch the video below to understand what i mean by him being stiff. he is an athletic freak of a big man, but as for moving up in position, hes not built for that.

    Re: Why can't JJJ play minutes for this team??

    Thaddues Young plays the 3 right. I see him being able to be that type of player in a couple years but he is probably better suited to play 4 based on his offensive skillset. He has nice range for a big man, but his wind up is too slow, IMO.

    If he ever got real, steady minutes we could probably evaulate him better.
