In rebuild mode I feel like the young guys should get the bulk of the shots minutes and usage, some may feel guys are too young for that but we only have one real (teen) young guy on this team (fox) the rest Frank, Bogie,JJ are older and should be able to handle more than the minutes and shots they are getting. Guys like WCS,Buddy should be especially featured as they are 24+ years old now......they should be looked at as the "Vets" in crunch time, do not be afraid to lose this year, absolutely go for the win, but do so with your potential future, not guys who won't be here in a year or 2. I do not agree that ZBO, Hill and Temple are here to mentor, they are NBA players, they want shots, playing time and money just like anyone else, they do not have a vested interest or history in this franchise like Tim Duncan as illustrated by these three events. -ZBO the mentor gets arrested for selling weed. -G. Hill tells the salt lake media guy hes pissed about playing time, Doris Burke on the national broadcast brings up the fact that Joerger approached ZBO about cutting minutes for the young guys and the ZBO flat out refused. -All three are here because we overpaid for them to be here. No one else was matching that money for any of them. I like your point on the young guys not getting the offense and I agree, but why the bottom of league in pace with the shooters and athletes we have? Why not push the ball more and emphasize threes? Wouldn't that be even simpler? All I see is mostly ZBO setting a pick only to get the ball back for himself? Why not clear some space by going small and playing spread out? Let Fox have some more chances to try to attack? Simple things that we do not do because they don't work for ZBO. The Spurs send down there top (late 1st round) draft picks to play in the D-league because the big club is in constant contention, simply put there is no time at the big club for the young guys to play. The Kings currently should have no problem finding time for at least their first rounders at the big club. Like its not like last night we were playing against a team that should overwhelm the youngsters, yet ZBO (tied) leads the team in shots. Go for the WIN but results be damned this year. I do not think anyone is specifically clamoring for losing on purpose, most people just want more run from the youngsters, sure throw a vet in there once in a while, but focal points and most of the shots should only be for the young guys. G. Hill and ZBO should have a healthy serving of DNP-CDs and be okay with it since they are "mentors".
