We had 3 great individual performances last night. The rest of the team was horrorshow, and not in the Clockwork Orange sense.
I hear the calls by CHers to bench Wes, etc. but I can't find anybody on the roster who I want getting significantly more minutes at 2 or 3. I don't want to see much more of Wayne. I trust that RA has reasons for not playing Beasley more in games like last night. Webster clearly isn't ready for significant burn.
I am flummoxed as to why we didn't see more of Pek in the 4th last night, but I am posting today to suggest that the time has not come for pitchforks and torches.
Question: Is He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named still ostensibly the one who works the phones and potentially pulls the trigger on trades, etc.? If so, I think that Adelman's decisions to play Wes for extended minutes (and other such moves) might represent nothing less than Adelman putting some heat on the POBO: in effect, saying: "You see what I have to work with here? I can't make chicken salad out of chicken droppings." I'm not saying that Adelman would ever tank a game, but he surely knows how important it is for this roster to improve.
Proposal: Most of us have an overwhelming abundance of respect for Adelman as a coach. In a world of basketball Wise Guys and Made Men, Adelman is a Godfather, a Don. Accordingly, I think we fans owe him a certain measure of respect and trust in his basketball wisdom. I would like to suggest we, as a community, do our best to refrain from abusing his name or his basketball decisions, even in the heat of the game. Are you with me?
