    He's trying to suppress his value so we can afford to keep him? ;)

    Not sure it's the best time for a thread like this but that's just my opinion right?

    Aminu is. Not sure why it isn't talked about as much?

    I don't see anything wrong with this thread. It's a legit question.

    Stotts even answered it by playing him only 7 minutes last game.

    Start him with a short leash. So, the usual. Well need him if/when KD gets back. I wouldn’t bench him completely just yet.

    Because it's Muslims from the middle East most are afraid of. Nigeria (where most of my genes come from) isn't some oppressive regime either.

    Hmmmm.... you might be right.....

    Should I have written it earlier in the day? Maybe like.... 9:30? Or should I have waited until closer to game time? Say...... 5:30? I just figured posting it right before lunch time would mean a higher participation rate. But you might have a point. People wasting time at work won't be looking at RC2 at lunch. That was a rookie mistake on my part.

    Maybe, but if so then he is approaching it the wrong way.

    However, is this the real Evan Turner that emerged in game seven or was he a fluke? If he really could play like that on a consistent basis I would be happy to see him accumulate minutes . The guy I really want to see is Skal. He was never given a chance. Jake has to re surface too.

    Jake may not be ready but if Hood is NOT healthy, Jake will be forced to play We have to have a SF who can help take pressure off of CJ and Dame. The Warriors have an aggressive D. They will trap heavily, someone needs to make them pay besides Curry

    I think Kanter is mentioned more because of the separated shoulder and that he can't take pain medicine combined with the fact he's been more important to the team's post season success so far.

    I never played College basketball but even a full blown retard would bench him and never play him but Scotts will make sure Aminu starts again on Thursday

    They've had their moments but this forward duo has been brutal.

    What's their combined +/- in these playoffs?

    He'll be needed if KD returns.

    Right now Moe is playing better than him on both ends.

    Sure Aminu will stop KD. I cant wait for Aminu to play lockdown Defense against the best player in the world.
