Let me start this off by saying this is in no way an attempt to bash Tyler but more so to get an understanding of why
I know we all have talked about Jim O'brien's notoriously inconsistent playing rotation. I think we can all agree that he has experimented more than a mad scientist. Last night , again, he went with a new starting line up that was not due to injury.
Why did Tyler start?
I have a real problem with this. I would like to know what Tyler has done to earna starting spot, if even for one game, but more importantly what has he done to earn consistent playing time?
What is he giving us that Mc Bob can't? I guarantee you if Mc Bob got the same playing time as Tyler, then his stats would be equal to if not greater than Tyler. Tyler says he is not concerned with his shooting? huh? Well I am. His shoting is atrocious and while it "might come around" that remains to be seen.
Mc Bob, on the other hand does not shot everytime he touches the ball. Is a better rebounder and does not get stuffed under the rim.
I thought playing time was EARNED, and I dont feel like Tyler has earned the right to receive more playing time than Mc Bob.
Again this is not a "bash Tyler thread" but really about what does Obie see in him? Please dont say the tired out "hustle and energy". Mc Bob, Hibbert, and D Jones, all bring the same "hustle and energy"
So the question is : Do you think that Pacer front office or Bird is pushing Obie to play Tyler? I am sure Birds ego is desperatley trying to make Tyler into a star so he looks like a draft genius.
I just struggle to find a solid reason why Tyler has earned playing time over Mc Bob
Look forward to your thoughts
