I like Cole, but he needs to cut down on the mental errors.... I don't see how we would trade him, he's our pg and we given some oppurtunities to underserving players ala Pittman
you call derek fisher better?
There's a reason Fisher currently is unemployed.......
"chuck" Norris Cole
I'd rather Norris get this **** out of his system now when the games don't matter. Clearly the team trusts him as he's getting more action than this period last year...just needs to learn to slow himself down when he gets too excited.
fisher is clutch and can teach mario . plus he can be a juwan howard back in the locker room .. those are the positive things he can bring to this team .. and norris ? young ,fast and quick .. thats it
Bottom line peeps, I don't know why anyone would want to revert to 2010-2011, when we had no other viable option at PG and had to settle old and slow Mike Bibby, which is essentially what Derek Fisher is. The aim to get LBJ to play as off the ball as possible, and it's hard to do that with a Fisher on the roster, who can't stay in front of his own shadow. Our staple on defense is containing the ball and packing the paint. Cole and Chalmers historically are pretty good at containing the ball despite the struggles early on. I'm about as pissed off at Cole's lack of production as yopu guys are, but it's early.
I don't know why people are complaining about Cole. Seriously, where are the other options? Do we have another option? LMAO
Cole isn't that bad. Like some has said here, he bring energy every night and can defend the other point guards his only problems are the TO and forcing shots, things that go when a player start maturing.
BTW the other options are not playing him and play Wade or Lebron at the pg position. Yeah... Wade chasing pg's ... :scary:
Turnovers and shot selection are his only problems... 2 To per game 1.7 to be exact and attemping only 4 shots pergame... WHILE defending VERY good the other pg's...
Tell me what are your options? We have to go with the players we have, and there are no other options. He only plays 18 minutes a game.
Last season, 39%fg and 7pts, and no body complained, and suddenly after TWELVE friking games he is the worst... Come on dude!
