    I blame Casey for Ross's lack of development...

    There was blame in the 2012-13 season for JV being really raw. If we wanted to do player development, Y did Casey throw in AA rather than Ross?

    If the first 23 games of the season was JV & Ross development, no body would blame this team...
    And you would see much better progress w/ Ross.

    That's my 2cents.

    Alan Anderson played wayyyyy too much last year. That should not have been the case. DeMar started his rookie year, mind you he had limited minutes, but he had consistent minutes playing with the starters every game. Obviously they couldn't do that with Ross, but he could've been first off the bench behind DeMar. He should have been allowed to play through mistakes.

    But I think making conclusions regarding his career is ridiculous. I think he will become a valuable player on this team.

    Henson has been a beast for the Bucks in summer league. He's bulked up some now to go with those long arms and offensive skills. Maybe the Bucks will team him with Larry Sanders more next season. Henson's another pick taken after Ross that is farther along in his development at this point.
    Henson was really impressive based on highlights and box score.

    My understanding is their front court moving forward is Henson and Sanders. That is going to be crazy length and athleticism.

    For all the hype JV has gotten over 1 game, Henson deserves a lot of credit as well. Granted Henson is 2 years older but he is going to be very good as well.

    so what are the excuses people are giving ross this time? the scrubs he was playing against were of insane quality? not consistent minutes? hasn't had the time to develop in the offseason?
    For a million time. Raps are misusing him. Ross is not a 1 on 1 player. Needs to watch old Mo Pete highlights.

    I just don't get the need to bash a player on our team that is still developing. Some of the "fans" on this site are pretty wishy washy. It's one thing to bash Bargs after 7 years of mediocre, frustrating performances, but to bash a guy coming off his rookie season, that's just miserable. People are way to negative on this site!

    But is Ross developing? I hope he bounces back next game.

    Most or "some" of the people in this forum have no idea what they're talking about. Noticed that a long time ago.

    Comments like "Lowry's a top 10 PG in the league" or "No way i trade Lowry for Wall" "Ross is better than Barnes" drives me nuts LOL

    Nurse ran a TON of wing iso penetration, which isn't Ross' strong point to say the least. His strength is in the open court and coming off screens. Maybe they're seeing what he can do with his improved handles? Not sure. If he could create his own shot off the dribble that'd be pretty sick.

    Plus there's the cramps issue. If you're a shooter and can't get your legs under you it's going to be a long night. And it was. Get the man a iv drip.

    He'll bounce back. I think Ross is more of a Ray Allen type player that moves without the ball and relies on his teammates finding him when he is coming off screens. I can see Ross being a fast, slippery player that can get open on the corners. Casey should stick him in a room and watch Allen highlights lol.

    Summer league doesn't play to his style. There's too many ball dominating guards, and he's forced to create his own shot. Hopefully Nick Nurse can make some adjustments and the cramping goes away.

    He is a the receiver of punch and kick.

    Let Lowry play his game and Ross will thrive.

    And ball movement. Get the ball moving to the open man.

    JV looked out of shape last time. Had a great 1st half but 2nd half you can tell he was tired. Need to so some conditioning.

    Exactly. When I watch Henson and Anthony Davis play I cannot help but put down all the JV hype going on here. I like JV a lot and I hope he is going to be a fantastic player. But he should be treated like a rook who needs a lot of improving and not like a star right now.
