    Derrick williams looked as though he doesn't care. The only wolf with effort seemed to be demarre amundson.
    So is Dwill 2.0 better than Kanter still?

You have to balls to say that when you pulled Alec after 16 minutes against LAC and Kanter got 19 minutes toinght?

    Very good win tonight. Maybe the most complete win by the team all season. Nice to see everyone on the roster getting at least a point.

    I thought it was odd too, though honestly Burks deserves more of Foye's minutes now.

    Yet Foye will continue to start.

    I hope Kevin O'Lindsey sees that article. It's clear Demarre won't be around next season. He's a good energy guy. I think a few contenders could use him off the bench. Trade him for a late first.

    That's a fight that anyone paying attention knows can't and won't be won unless the FO does something. Foye is going to play, and it won't really matter how bad he plays.

    Trading players only to make coach adjust because he is not able to handle players ego is counter-productive in the long run. It only hurts organization and feeds bad culture. If coach is unable to keep the team under his total control get rid of him and get a new guy.

    I don't necessarily disagree. The FO is also in charge of who's coaching and not, though.

    I don't care if Foye starts as long as more minutes shall be given to Burks.

    not the thread name I would appreciate. I don't like this losing attitude. I don't like tanking. we have the best contributing bench in the league. let's enjoy it.

    but it's a game thread anyway so thanks.

    nice hustle game by kanter. dude is just on fire when he's fired up.
    David Locke: "Because what happens in this league is, people start shooting threes and they get soft and donít want contact and then they just stay out there all the time. Youíre not going to get soft, are you?"
    Enes Kanter: "I kind of live in the paint, man. Come on. I wonít get soft. Donít worry about that."

    Carroll's comments bugged me. He's lucky to be in the league right now.
    And he's acting like he's a rotation player in this league. It's ok to think that,
    but to voice your opinion in the media just makes you look bad.

    He's part of the me first thing that is going on in the team right now.
    Corbin reacts to it just as he wants to, by being inserted back into the rotation.
    Whine to the media get what you want.

    carroll seemed pretty impatient about making his statement that he deserves to be a rotation player at the start of the season and in the media day. he is a good hustle player, so I think he contributes well when needed, but he is not a part of a contender team's rotation, well at least not a sixth man.

    again you are spot on. Carroll is a nice hustle guy, and has done some good things for us. He doesn't have any consistent go to offensive moves, and isn't a defensive stud or anything.
    He makes his plays on hustle on energy. Gets some steals, and can finish well on the break. He by no means has earned the right to demand to be in the rotation.

    I love Carroll, he is a good defender and always plays his heart out and I think his hustle is contagious for the other players on the court. Not to mention Carroll is tough, if I recall right, last year he got slammed down on the court hard, had to get one or two teeth removed and still played the next day. He is a good energy guy off of the bench, but if I had to choose between seeing more minutes for Carroll or Burks, I choose Burks every time. Burks has more potential and is better offensively. Carroll is pretty bad when it comes to scoring decent at everything else
