It's 2 effen games! I think I'll put a little more faith in Casey's judgement of when to give Ross minutes at this point in his career, over anyone here. He's not a beast a la Lebron, Dwight, etc. He's a skinny college kid who just may need a little more tutoring, beyond 2 games into a 82 games season, before Casey feels he should send him out there against players like Joe Johnson, Wallace, Paul George, etc.. Krist, take a pill, his chance will come. Shyt, for example, do you know what Kobe's minutes were in his first 10 games in the league? 6,3,7,17,8,5,6,7,14,8. That's Kobe for gawd sakes! By the end of the year, his average was 15 minutes. T Ross's time will come. Senseless to be demanding he get thrown out there more, two effen games in!
Sorry if that response is a little too aggressive, but the volume of angst over two close games vs highly regarded teams, is beyond comprehension to me. Remember, these games are also the first two games that Casey and the coaching staff have to work with this new collection, in real games, yet despite the inexperience, a minor tweek here and there and they're 2-0.
The #8 pick is not wasted after 2 effen games.
