Yes. It's garbage time, this is a perfect time to evaluate what we have.
instead of giving 35 min to Reggie we could have given at least 10 min to this guy. everyone is getting a chance, why not him?
he must suck real bad.... if he can't even earn garbage time through practices/scrimmages
He sucks real bad.
Why the fuck not
Play him. It wouldn't hurt to at least get him some burn for long stretches in game time. He has another year guaranteed on his contract so damn well use it up while you can evaluate him and make some kind of judgement.
what if he turns out a shot blocking beast?
yeah, what the heck. play him. what are you going to lose? ranking in the league? isn't that what we want?
I think they want to let him get more practice in. The guys was a monster in college and has the potential to be a sick shot blocker, but he lacks a lot of fundamentals because he started playing B-Ball much later than most guys. The logic is probably to keep him in development on the bench until you sure his confidence won't get destroyed and that he can get in some good reps. That said, I'd like to see them toss him into the fire a bit so we can all see how far he has left to go.
nothing wrong with giving alabi some burn but that bleacher report article was one of the worst I've read. 80% of the people who post on this site write better than that chump.
Sure why not? He doesn't look ready at all though; therefore we should start Ajinca and him today against the Nets.
