In the post-game show, Jim basically said the vets would be playing down the stretch. The way he said it left little doubt in my mind that this would not change all year. He was firm. He complained about Tyler's PnR defense...but didn't say nary a word about Aldridge lighting Murphy up like a Cuban cigar....and not a word about how well Tyler defended the post...and honestly didn't brag much at all about his nice game...dude said Tyler has a lot to learn. Hmmmm.
Why does he love Murphy so much? He also brags about Foster's great Plus-Minus last year...but says nary a word about Murphy's plus-minus...which is the absolute worst one on the team this year.
Honestly, some of you are probably confused by all of this. I have concluded that no one can possibly be this stupid. JOb is not a stupid man and I believe he is capable of being a good coach. Yes, you heard it correctly. I'll tell you what the problem really is. Actually, it has to be one of two things.
1) JOb thinks the 3 point shot is the most important thing in basketball...by a wide margin
2) Murphy, TJ and Foster are playing big minutes because they have very big contracts. IOW, they are being played because of financial reasons.
Neither of these reasons will help you win games...which is why we have lost every game this season with Murphy except one.
