In response to hedleylamarr's comment:
And I hope he does...............but the point is that if he deserves to play, he will play, the color of his skin is irrelevant!
you have got to be kidding me, right? avery bradley deserved to play and only got to by accident. darko milicic HAD TO PLAY for us in order for KG not to get overused- and not only that darko proved his worth and competency in a successful preseason. doc never played him. doc NEVER played steamer until JerLame O'neal's knee folded like a cheap tent. the prudent coach would have begun working the GREEN steamer in for some minutes FROM GAME ONE knowing the injury history of o'neal.
glen davis never played much until there was nobody left on the roster who could play 4. doc's chosen boy was leon powe, a guy who turned out to be not nearly the player davis was and i'm talking all injuries aside. and i loved leon as an energy role player guy, it's just that davis could cover more distance in playing TWO roles.
let's see, what else? oh, i have it- i was at first deflated when we signed marquis to replace posey. then i looked at marquis' game and thought- THIS GUY IS THE PERFECT 2/3 combo man!!! good on defense, can give us something we need- POST UP LOOKS and get to the free throw line and give our old guys a breather during those free throws = marquis should play TWENTY FIVE MINUTES A NIGHT EVERY NIGHT to keep 1) pierce's minutes under control and 2) ray allen's minutes under control.
after all, marquis averaged 12-13 in indy and proved to be a decent player in not many minutes over 25 a night. hell if he did well in BOS he should have gotten 28 or more. the only problem was that doc NEVER USED HIM LIKE THAT- he struggled to find any consistent role because he got NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH PLAYING TIME. remind you of jeff green anyone?
please don't ever ever ever ever invest blind faith that a player on doc blithers' roster will "play if he deserves to play" by strictly the merit of the situation becuase what goes on in doc's head is a totally different altered 'reality'.
yet another post to show you hate Doc and to a lesser extent, Danny. We get it, Acie. You can just cut and paste into every one of your posts, regardless of the topic of the thread: "I hate Doc" and it would save us all the time of reading your monolog!
but, don't rewrite history to make your point. Bradley was getting minutes and most, if not all of us kept wondering why (including me)! Many clamoured for Moore and yet, Doc gave the minutes to Bradley. Then we all began to see why as the kid kept proving himself. I was wrong and eventually saw what Doc saw First.
clearly, Glen Davis got plenty of PT, as well. Davis was a candidate for 6th man of the year before he imploded and that happened because Doc played him.
Try not to rewrite history so that you can support your hate for Doc. We all know you blame him for every problem and give him no credit for anything that goes well.
