Basically, I figured going into the season that the idea was for JJ to play 3/4 of the minutes and Butler to share minutes with Forbes as the back-up 3.
Also, Magloire shouldn't be playing, really. The centre spot was to be Amir/Gray with Bargs and Davis getting the odd chance to guard opposing 5's. It's great that Casey likes playing his veterans on a young team, but I want to see Forbes and Alabi get minutes, even at the cost of winning games.
To me Forbes is in an unoffical battle with Weems for the back-up 2 next year and we need to see if Alabi can be our 3rd string centre next year. If Casey doesn't think they can play in the NBA, BC should cut them and find equivalent players who Casey can use, since its important that this team have both a young centre and a 2-3 guard who can be a part of this team next year.
This year, Casey seems more focused on winning than evaluating the talent. When winning this year is secondary to building a team for next year, where we feel we'll begin to have a competitive team we can build from.
This is what our team should look like next year.
1.Calderon,Bayless,Carter (or equivalent veteran)
2.Derozan, (Weems or Forbes, or someone else), and our new draft pick.
3. JJ, draft pick, Kleiza (with each getting around 10 minutes per game)
4. Bargnani, Davis, Amir, Kleiza
5. Amir, Val, (one of Alabi, Gray, another young centre).
Magloire as your token Torontonian in a suit.
