View Full Version : Guys who should be getting more minutes!

Thibs is one of the coaches who isn't to shy about leaning on his best players (in part because he's seen some of his key bench players leave and his star on the sidelines), but other coaches are doing likewise ('Antoni with Dwight and Kobe for example). But there are some coaches who simply aren't giving some of their guys enough minutes.

So... who do you think should be getting more minutes?


The guy who is number one on my list is Andre Drummon. He's second among rookies in rebounding, and is getting ten minutes less than the guy ahead of him. His per36 stats have him posting a dozen boards and a dozen points, and unlike most rookies, his FG% and fouls are great (that is something most rookies have to work on). Why is this guy not getting more minutes? It seems to me that having Drummond and Monroe working the post would make Detroit much better than its current record.

Calderon is also on my list, though with him I understand that Toronto has clearly chosen to go with Lowry as its starter. Still, his percentages are better and so are his assists.

Who do you think is spending too much time on the bench right now?

Ed Davis - comes to mind
Eric Bledsoe - but as long as he's on a deep clipper team behind Paul it won't happen

Kanter, Favors

Yeah, I have Favors on my fantasy team. I'm waiting for Milsap or Jefferson to be injured or traded so I can see Favors get his 15/10/3 (blocks). Minimum.

JJ Redick, make the trade Orlando. You won't start him, you haven't for years, now let him move on.

Ed Davis is finally getting more minutes, because Bargnani is injured but should be starting regardless.

Eric Bledsoe if he played on any other team that didn't have that much depth at the guard position.

I also think Andre Drummond, Greg Smith and Tiago Splitter(but I'm sure 'Pop' knows what he's doing) deserve more minutes.
