    Deandre Jordan: The $43 million bench player

    Why does he only get 24 minutes per game? His minutes have not increased at all over the past 3 years and most of his rate stats have improved.

    He is sporting a 98 defensive rating right now and is averaging a career high in points. It's not like they need someone elses offense since they have Blake, CP3, Crawford, Butler, Barnes, Odom, Bledsoe...etc.

    Why pay the guy 43 million to play 20 minutes per game?

    I don't understand why they would pay the guy 43 million to even play 30+ mins a game. Take away Paul and Griffin, and his numbers/production go way down.

    They're just that good right now. He'd play more if we needed it. He is playing very well and worth the money.

    No. He gets taken out at the 5 minute mark of the 1st quarter and then comes back in with 3.5 left in the second. He only gets 12 minutes in the first half.

    Then they take him out with 4 to go in the 3rd. There is nothing to do with free throw shooting in those times.

    The team is so deep. They wouldnt be the worst team in the NBA with:

    bledsoe
    crawford
    hill/barnes
    turiaf
    hollins

    yes but turiaf and hollins are both trash who have been tossed from team to team. I think giving deandre more minutes would benefit the team more than having them play.

    They're deep and are winning right now. Why mess with the rotations when you're kicking *** like them?

    Hes actually been wasting possessions of late but the truth is he is inconsistent but shows enough promise to warrant the money. And the league has gone smaller, we dont need our traditional lineup much.

    "It’s absolutely ludicrous” (to judge players based on whether they’ve won a title.)

    False. Tufiaf and Hollins are probably both better "players" than DJ. DJ is just so much bigger and more athletic. Also, Odom is replacing DJ. Turiaf/Hollins are backing up Blake. There isn't a flaw in the VND's rotations right now. Everything is going perfectly right now...how can say we can improve on a franchise record 15 game winning streak? A streak we are winning by 16+ per game?

    They play Lamar Odom a lot so he can get in better shape and their bench is so deep.
    Even CP3 is sitting on the bench in the 4th so often since they are blowing teams out left and right.
    He Mad.

    Minn
    Sac
    Utah
    Dallas
    Pho
    Tor
    Chi
    Char
    Mil
    Detroit
    New Orleans
    Sac
    Pho
    Denv
    Boston

    They have beaten maybe 3 good teams during this entire streak. Chicago, even though they aren;t exactly a top teams, Denver..and boston. Neither of which are very good this year.

    So, just because they are winning the easy games doesn't mean that his rotations can't be improved. They are 17th in rebounding...you know who is the teams 2nd best rebounder? JORDAN..in only 20 minutes.
