    Default McRoberts

    I may be crazy but I wish they would give Josh McRoberts some playing time. I think he has a lot to offer. Yes he plays the same way Jeff does. But good defense also make good offense.

    Well, if they're not willing to use Hibbert to spell Rasho, than I guess I'd be fine with McBob...for limited stretches.

    Not crazy at all. While I don't agree with him playing like Jeff, I do agree he
    has much to offer. He is being brought along slowly, and am confident he
    will be getting more chances later in the season as fresh legs are needed.

    We aren't winning a championship this year, why not let the young guys get some time?

    He doesn't play because Foster and Murphy play in front of him and cost the Pacers over 15M/yr.

    Unfortunately, he sits while more athletic teams have a good time scoring on Troy. That's one reason we are under .500.

    Agreed. JOB's rotations in Saturday's back-to-back on the road following an O.T. game the previous night looked foolish. Wade was great, but our starters also wilted. Give some of the fresh bench players, especially McRoberts, some time in a game like that. Not just to win the game, but to see what they've got.

    The point is not "which player is better?". The point is "which player is better in certain circumstances?". Sometimes you need a big, heavy center on the floor. Sometimes you need more athleticism. This is a coaching issue or maybe a money issue.
