[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Big baby complains about role : He brings energy and toughness, but he is clearly at his best as a change of pace guy coming off the bench. He, like TA, is not starter material on a very good team. And if he was, he'd be playing the majority of minutes because Doc would play his best players.

this is where your arguement falls flat apart. 1) davis would never play more minutes than kg unless kg was on crutches, regardless of whether he was 'better' than him. kg gets paid 26 million and davis 3 million. that's all you need to know.
2) doc does not have a track record of "playing the best players"- see last year and sheed. sheed was god-awful, exhibited a great many things that made every old school minded celtic former player or fan vomit in a trash bag in front of the TV, and yet got a set amount of minutes / night no matter how bad he was.
at least shelden would have hustled out there and gotten some caroms- he always did when he was put out there.
and watch for an even more important gaffe in what should be automatic common sense meritocracy rotations for any coach coming up- when perkins comes back. it won't matter how bad perskins is, and it is a guarantee he will be slower and near worthless on a contending team. he was hardly watchable the second half of last season after a rather nice first half.
unprovoked, perkins declined dramatically from january on last year, and many games we would have been better with davis and williams splitting the 4/5 back up minutes because perkins was nailed to the floor with hands of stone like rarely seen since his rookie or second year.
now with good cause to decline, what him go. and watch doc play him, just as soon as he can, to the detriment of the team game and likely glen davis specifically will see his minutes fall because he is younger than perk and JON and shaq. doc runs an age-tocracy. that's long been known.
