Korver is greaet, but Sloan leaves him in the game too long. He shouldn't be
playing the entire fourth quarter while a world class athlete sits on the
bench.Play Korver 6 minutes in the fourth and then play Brewer. He
should be getting double the minutes Korver gets.
We need to find away to get Korver more minutes!!!! The minutes that are being
wasted are those given to Miles. Also I don't understand why the lane violation
is controversal... the man was clearly in the lane too soon.
Pick up the option on Almond.
It wasn't his length in the lane it was that he was in early before the ball had
left Korver's hand.
brewer can get a consistent jumpshot and be a decent free-throw shooter, he
would see more playing time at the end of games.I think he will get
there this year.
The endless 2 guard quandry continues to compromise the team.Clearly
if we had one player who had the necessary tools to "take over" the whole job we
would not be stuck in a dilemma of who to play.The reality, thus
far, is that Brewer still struggles with his deep range (which has to be the
quality of a decent 2 guard) and Korver struggles to defend. Without multiple consistent outside shooting threats we will lose to the
Lakers in the playoffs again. AK's and Brewer men did not even guard them last
year (outside 15 feet) and their men just double and triple teamed Boozer in the
middle and effectively neutralized him. Game/series over.We have to
be able to stretch the defense to open the middle because Boozer can work around
1 guy but not with 2-3 guys on him every set. Sloan is trying to
make 1 player out of two here. Poor dude. Brewer is by far the superior
athlete but he scores mostly around the rim which does not spread the floor but
rather congests it. Not good when our PF needs room to operate.
Obviously, Brewer is the better athlete. But, shooting is something that I don't
think Brewer will ever be able to sufficiently enought to earn more minutes than
Kyle, especially in the fourth quarter. I'm fine with them splitting minutes the
way they are, and once Harpring is back, C.J. better bring his "A" game; if not,
I'll be expecting Matt to start and C.J. should have plenty of DNP CDs.
Teams can win with a position-by-committee. The Bulls in the 1990's never had a
clear-cut point guard, they played an undersized 2-guard most of the time and
got away with it. The Spurs have started multiple 2 guards during their title
runs (Stephen Jackson, Michael Finley, Manu Ginobli, Brent Barry, etc). If the
players suppress their egos and find a way to contribute, it can work. The
Celtics bench had one key guy last year (Posey) and a bunch of journeymen who
didn't contribute consistently, but a different guy would step up when needed
and have a big game. Result: World Champions. Jazz have enough to get to the
Finals if they can play it out right.
Brewer needs to play as much as possible. Miles needs to be traded for a big guy
that can playdefense. Korver can have Brewer left over minutes...The
five main guys should be dwill, Brewer,Boozokur,and AK...Millsap can spell
any of the three. andthen comes Harpring. .I am not impressed withKnight or Price both are too small. Of course we need a new coach also
...that would be nice. but everyone knows how I feel about
i love how stupid some comments are here. jerry sloan is one fo the greatest
coaches ever. he has the stats to prove it. i love the brewer korver mix and
their take on the matter. they have said that as long as together they do better
than any other two gaurd then thats a a victory. price isn't much smaller than a
i and is getting better. also he dunked over boozer so yeah. harrng is gone for
the forseeable future and almond is trade bait.
how about we play 6 people?
