    Yes. Bargs in getting traded in the off season anyway.

    If the player is good enough to play, then they should play. If playing them could cause further damage then sure give them rest. Don't rest them just to give younger guys minutes, this is the NBA, you need to earn what you get, not get it because someone got some extra rest in a loosing season....we are not gearing up for a playoff run.

    Reg's foot is screwed up again too.

    I say shut down Bargs so he can get the bone spurs operated on, shut down Reg, shut down Barbo aka The Walking Dead, shut down Jose (hammy problem, again), shutdown Amir- he is injured and also sucks, then play all the young bucks.

    But aren't Amir and Andrea young players still developing? I have no problem with them shutting down the likes of Evans and Barbosa.

    Why not just shut down the entire team and let the 5 best season ticket holders that attend that night, play?

    you're 100% right but if your trying to trade bargs and keep amir longterme would you like to play with amir ankles and bones spur for bargs

    i say the future is not NOW in the present so id say let them rest and get back to 100% percent instead of amir trying and leaving games early

    i say lets play davis (already missed time in the begining of the year and alabi need a 20-25 min games to really see what he has ....its my point of view anyways)

    THANKS FOR REPLYING

    I agree. (well except for the Amir comment) Wow twice in one day! Must be a full moon or something.

    I'm rusty and a little stiff/out of shape, but I would be good for a few hard fouls. Maybe an elbow to the junk then walk out the tunnel arms raised a la Matt Bonner. My 15 seconds of fame....

    I'm 6'0 and played highschool ball, but haven't done much since. I could probably snare more boards than Bargs tho.

    Yeah, hopefully we'll lose more games with less experience. I'm all for letting Bayless play 30 minutes a night to see what he's like... I'm not to sure about him yet, he's young but he doesn't seem to have a very high basketball IQ. Also Ajinca should play more.
