I don't see anything different Jerry, it's always the same ole same ole with
you. Hayward doesn't cut it, I thought earlier in the preseason that maybe the
kid had a chance this year but he has definetly shown he needs time in the
D-league, Evans is a different story because his athletism carries him while
learning. Start Watson at the #2 and let Hayward watch. If Jefferson &
Milsap don't get it going with energy early bench them also.
When someone is hurt, Jerry always starts a bench-warmer. Makes no sense. He is only playing CJ 22 minutes a game. Give him 40 when someone is
hurt. The Jazz already can't score in the 1st quarter. So why play
Hayward who can't score?Start Price. Start CJ. Start anyone but
Terrible mistake by Sloan, the advance stats show that CJ instead of Bell is one
of the Jazz' best units, and also the unit that has played the 2nd most minutes
behind the starters.Watson or Price with the other four have also
been net positive. Hayward should be getting 35 minutes a night in the
D-League, just crazy throwing him to the wolves after keeping him buried all
year, nonsensical. Send him down for the year and re-sign Jeffers, who at least
knows the system.Sloan, KOC, et al are great, but they're just
prehistoric on this sort of thing. All gut, no rings.
I totally agree with the posts. If Bell cannot go, CJ is best served to start
because you know likely to get 15 points. Frankly, I was a supporter for him to
start this season at the #2 from day 1. He gets going when makes a couple. I
also think starting he is very happy, if that is what needed to get that
consistency he is far better than Gordon who is too tentative right now and
needs some more time..
Hayward needs a regular 5-10 substitute roll. He is not going to progress with
this no minutes for 2 weeks then expected to start and matchup with Vince Carter
for 20+ minutes.The problem is if you bring him in with the second
unit instead of CJ, the second unit has no scorers.It will be
interesting to see what happens when Memo returns. The rotations and lineups
will have to changes substantially. I could see Milsap or AK playing with the
second unit as well.
