Fucking Sonny. Honestly man, the effort level pisses me off. He was so lazy in his coverage of Granger in the first quarter that it made me reevaluate my entire opinion of him. How can he not be up for this game? He's playing in a contract year and starting! No other team would give him that opportunity and here he is blowing it. Raise a hand on the contest, fight through a screen, close-out, do something that says you're effort is about 50%.
First off I canít fathom BC letting Minnesota reap the big reward of Bosh leaving (M. Beasly). Adding insult to injury is our current need for a scoring wing who can shoot the 3 pt. Mental issues or not, 29 teams said no to him or not, he was on a rookie scale contract and if he had caused any problems we would have not extended him, that is the worst case scenario. But no BC knows better, in most transactions he made he skips the stud and signs the dud; Klieza.
With all due respect to his game on the national team and his stint in Greece and his 4 years prior to that with Denver, the guy is just horrible. Unforced-turnovers, wonky shooting, just plain old bad. To me he plays more like an undersized PF than a SF.
Sonny on the other hand, oh.... Sonny is also unsuitable to play the SF he is too small to guard SFs in this league. To compound the problem when he and DD take the floor our offence becomes so predictable neither can shoot the 3 (DD cant shoot period), and defences know all drives are going to end up with a shot attempt at the basket (i.e. no drive and kick to keep defences guessing). Sonny`s best basketball this season came when he played off the bench or when he was playing teams with limited 3 pt thread. He should not be getting starter mins.
Anyways in short, neither Sonny nor Klieza are the answer to our small forward problem. We need a wing who can shoot the 3 pt, athletic, and can rebound, someone like Ariza.
On a final note the more I see this team the more Iím convinced that the self proclaimed `Young OnesĒ will have to be broken up, at least DD and Sonny.
