[QUOTE]In Response to Re: As I watched TA, Leon and Kristic I realized... : do you think he's doing well managing the minutes? each and every night the starters are high 30's, low 40's. able bodied, more than able bodied jeff green, delonte sitting on the bench way too much. i sure don't blame talent mgt when it comes to davis over powe, letting posey walk vs paying him stupid money or any of that. there's no blame to be handed to anyone. powe is not going to be an impact player. he's blown the knees twice each side. or more. posey is obsolete. tony allen vs. jeff green. who do you want? i know and it isn't tony.

I think Doc is in a no win situation and whatever approach you take, someone will argue that it was wrong:
All year he juggled line ups that missed Rondo 11 games; KG 9 games; Shaq - months; JON - almost all season; Wafer - 3 weeks?; West, almost all season, Perk, first half of the season. Still - he got to the second best record in the league.
Then, Danny changed the team on him dramatically. So, he can:
a. Play the starters enough to get the wins necessary to get some kind of HCA in some of the series and have folks like you complain about their minutes (remembering he still has no Shaq, no JON, no Wafer, and a bunch of new guys who don't understand the offense nor defense) OR
b. work the subs in faster where they learn more quickly but lose more games....having other folks complain about the losses and why they aren't winning and why the subs are in the game too long.
Either way, he loses. So, he's doing it HIS way - which i agree with.
