In Response to Re: More JON, Less Big Baby
[QUOTE]Thank you. Baby makes me want to break things. He has been TERRIBILE. People tried to convince me he didn't play bad the first game because he was +13 when JO was clearly the 2nd most important player to Ray and game one but was a -11. He is awful. Dowright putrid right now. I guess it can only get better. I love the " Baby played hard " that's all people have since he hasn't done squat to affect the game. JO erased 4 shots in 1st quarter. That's more than Baby contributed the whole game.

WOWZERS!! Tom, here's a penny for your thought(s?)- davis had 6 boards tonight in 26 mins, to JO's 3 boards in over 20 mins. jerlame blocked 2 shots tonight, davis scored 2 more points, had one more assist and one more steal than JO. he shot 2-3, jerlame shot 1-3.
so there you have it. when glen looks for his shot he gets crucified as a gunner. when he goes out and works hard and serves up a pretty complete game, including defense, you hate him all the same.
the plus/minus is a fraudulent statistic. here is why davis' was high tonight- he was in when the bench, namely "butterflies" green, coughed up the lead early. then he was ALSO in when carmelo went insane. green coughed up about 8 easy points when he was out there that were not recovered. is that davis' fault?
didn't green have open looks galore inside and only converted one of them? was the fact that carmelo went nutty happy triple birthday davis' fault? to the contrary, he helped get cramelo under control with AT LEAST EIGHT double teams that worked very well in helping to get the ball away from the white hot carmelo.
but all you see is red when you think of glen davis no matter what he does. maybe you can try looking objectively at the score sheet and game a little bit?
we have a DECENT tandem at 5 right now that includes JO, a fragile guy who has just been sewn back together for the 90th time and you want to run him extended mins vs. the knicks? really?
we're doing okay. we'll do better with shak in the fold to soak up some minutes at the 5. maybe you should sneak into the practice facility and scream at shak some. seems like he's your biggest issue.
