I don't think Coach Smart has helped any of his guys with the random rotation and everyone is starting to see it. 13 guys got to play last night. Consistently he plays about 11 guys (although not usually the same ones every game). Not sure why his "best" guys (DMC and Tyreke) only play 30 minutes per night. Jimmer plays every 3rd game. Outlaw usually only comes in when they are losing in the 3rd quarter. Brooks plays in 5 game stretches.
More like 25/42 but i get your point, yeah but for me Thornton has just been the biggest waste this season, if the real Thornton showed up all year we would have won about 4-5 more games at least. But yeah the coach just doesn't get it, that offense he runs is a joke, zero movement with Reke, Cousins and Thornton holding the ball waiting for someone to move and no one does so they have to go 1 on 1 into a tough shot 90% of the time. I don't get why they don't go with a starting line up of Reke @ PG, JT/T-Rob, Cuz and Thornton @SG will defend PG's and probably Garcia even as shit as he is just for floor spacing.
Play them all 35mins+ (other than Garcia)kinda like Portland do, I rather run those guys into the ground than watch than bench.
