    Little especially seems to have gotten much better from the start of the year to now, I really don't get his lack of minutes...

    That one makes more sense than Biggie/Wenyen because at least Mario has played relatively well lately. But yes Little should be playing over him regardless.

    So personal opinion here, Biggie isnt good.... Wenyen / Little / and Mario there are plenty of back up minutes they should get Cut back Ariza / Melo’s minutes.

    The only problem with that is once we start going to our bench we typically lose a lead or the deficit gets bigger. Playing them more minutes will likely end up with even worse results. Main issue is that we have 3 starters out which means 3 bench players are starting. Imagine what a bench of Whitreside, Melo, Ariza, Trent and either McCollum or Lillard would be like.

    We are gunning for wins, then the playoffs and then.................

    You would rather fold up and quit? The players, especially Lillard don't.

    I dont just pretend to be on here, but I also pretend to be one in the locker room, and on the sidelines of our games! Fake it till you make it!

    I absolutely understand the injury issues and I've said before our bench would actually be good when healthy. My opinion is though we can mix and match line ups better to redistribute minutes so that young guys develope, and the guys we really need in the playoffs (if we got there) would have less wear and tear on them throughout the season. Kind of the SAS way, now obviously are bench is end of the rotation guys for a reason just think we would be better off overall not killing Ariza and Melo.

    The mind is a terrible thing to waste. Look for more productive things in life than trying to be someone you aren't. Develope your own identity. :bgrin:

    Well it's likely a moot point now anyway, but this roster has very little margin for error until we get some players back healthy. As you have seen it pretty much takes all 5 starters to have a solid game in order for us to win as we get very little production from the bench.

    Yeah, I have said I think they don't have a ton of talent left right now. I think that's the biggest culprit for their woes this year, but you're right it kinda doesn't matter at this point, though basketball will be back at some point.
