    Default What's the Deal With Marco?

    Hmmm ..... so in the last 5 games he's played a total of 19 minutes. Is Belinelli sleeping with Jay's wife again? Why all of a sudden is Marco back in Triano's doghouse? I don't get it.

    For most of this season he's been a spark off the bench, so much that at times I'd prefer if Jay used Marco more than DeMar. Belinelli's defense is no worse than DeRozan's but at least Marco can create on offense.

    So, any of you have any ideas as to why the sudden benching of Belinelli?

    He *was* on a roll for awhile. But he doesn't understand that it's a team game sometimes. When he gets in, he's hungry to "get his shots" - forcing them. You just shouldn't be fading sideways while shooting a three. See Antoine Wright. He patiently waits for right shot. Belinelli could be a nice asset if he understood his limitations and became a better teammate. Note how Weems is *getting* a bit better in terms of understanding when to shoot. And Weems is embracing his role on D and rebounding.

    He sucks. People were heralding his arrival and I still don't get it. He's no better than Kapono, same style, same fluctuation.

    Do you remember how Jay fixed Wright's attitude? Wright use to be one of the most hated players on the roster, Jay sat him out for 5 straight games, and now look at him, he is a fan favourite.

    Personally I like what Jay is doing to Belli, this guy needs to understand his roll, he is no Wade or James, he needs open shots to score, not covered fade away shots from the three.. Trust me I think Belli will learn his lesson one day, and become a producer again soon.
    Take out the salami and cheese MAMA, this ball gameeeeee is OVERRRR!

    You lost all credibility when you compared him to Kapono. Marco is a poor poor man's version to Manu Ginobilli. Whereas Manu has mastered his skills time and time again, Marco only embarasses himself playing and looking out-of-control.

    Yea it definitely doesn't help that the moment the guy gets airborne he's toppling over. Maybe his head is too heavy?

    Marco has the talent and potential to be a very very effective 6th man. He just needs to work on his skills.

    He lost his spot in the rotation..
    Weems played great in extended minutes, and Wright has steped up too.
    With Demar the starter there just isnt enough minutes for Marco

    I understand that, but why does DeMar deserve the starter spot? It's not like he's played any better than Weems or Marco. Or do you think Jay's keeping him in for consistency purposes?
