Rudy Fernandez.


He can Dribble, Pass, Creat plays, Drive in.

But he is used as a spot up three poing shooter.

Thats a Waste.

Kevin Love. How on earth does my team not give him more than 28 mpg? He is a machine. 35mpg is needed this upcoming season

He hasn't for Kobe or Paul. Odom maybe. Its not necessarily about touches Im talking about his involvement overall. There are a whole lot of times when they just completely ignore him for stretches of a game. And he could be used to draw a lot more fouls on opposing bigs.

Anthony Randolph

What?
09-16-2010, 11:08 PM
Marc Gasol imo best or 2nd best player on that team and yet he never gets the offense ran through him.

Kevin Love he's a beast best or 2nd best rebounder in the league. Deserves at least 35minutes a game.

Rudy Fernandez good at pretty much everything and never gets to play because he's backing up someone who is great at everything

I think there are definetly more than 1, guys like James Posey, Kevin Love, Paul Millsap, Dujuan Blair, Marc Gasol, OJ Mayo, Rudy Fernandez. If I had to choose 1, I would choose Rudy Fernandez.

I think he would fall over and die game 56 if he played that man minutes a game haha. Not the best conditioned athlete

Marc Gasol is a good one. Memphis would be wise to take some shots away from Gay and give them to Marc

hell yeah but it would be unfair to play him more 10 min per game :speechless:..his per could be around 50 btw but he just doesnt want to

Didn't beas break some workout records last season for the heat? I think he's in good shape, just doesn't have the best lung capacity if you know what i mean.

marc gasol and love are two good ones. bargnani is misused. eric maynor seems to be underused, but he's behind westbrook so it's not really a poor decision. not sure channing frye deserves so many minutes. lots of guys i cant think of right now.

Pau and Bynum for the simple fact that they share the same paint. If each were on separate teams they would be more of a focus. I really hope this is the year the 2 can average near 20-10 together. But Bynum needs to get it out of his head that the game can be alot easier on a good team if you let it come to you. Hes always worried about his touches, quality over quantity is something youngsters rarely understand.

Even though, I'm glad he's gone but Hedo was misused during his one year here. He didn't run the offense as much as he did in Orlando and at times, he basically became a spot up shooter for most of the game.

Totally agree with everyone on Rudy Fernandez, Paul Milsap, Brandon Bass, Kevin Love and Marc Gasol.

Danny Granger is misused. He could be so much more than a volume 3pt shooter who waits passively at the arc for a pass. If he would just attack the basket more, he'd be a top 5 SF. When he goes to the rim, teams are forced to double him and he is a decent passer on the move. He would get his teammates open looks all day. And he needs to start playing D again.

Misused: Al Horford and Kevin Love. I expect both to change though.

I agree about Bayless.

Gortat for sure.

Horford and Love are good ones.

Manu Ginobili, a couple of years ago, would have been the poster child for this. He's an insanely gifted offensive player and while he's had a great career with the Spurs, I think it could have been better if he had been more involved in the offense.
