People have been talking about this in different threads, but I personally go back and fourth.
We have Paul George, Mike Dunleavy, Brandon Rush, and Dahntay Jones all deserving of minutes, so what should Frank do?
I think everyone agrees that Paul George should get to play, that's not a question. The remaining three guys all have positives and negatives about them.
Personally, I think it's abundantly clear that the starting backcourt (DC, Dun, Danny) is terrible defensively, and if we want to win games..that has to change. DC and Dun aren't terrible defenders because of lack of effort. They just get beat.
Which means I think we need to either put Dahntay or Rush in the starting spot.
I think you go with Rush for pretty obvious reasons. He's good at passing into the post, he's more passive and can hit the three (although apparently Dahntay can too) Paul George might already be the better player, but I want to bring on a young rookie slowly.
I think Dahntay would drive DC nuts, personally. (Especially when Dahntay gets the ball, dribbles it down the court, dribbles for a couple of seconds and then takes the shot...by the third time DJones does that, DC will look like ...)
So essentially, I want to bring PG on slowly, we need a defensive player, and I don't think DC and Dahntay would work out. So I think Rush is the obvious answer.
I'm also not sure of whether Vogel should do it slowly, or not.
So now what about the second unit. Dahntay or Dun?
I kept saying that I think Dun would be really good in the second unit, that he would help the offense significantly.
But it seems pretty clear from what I've heard the players in that unit say, they like being the gritty defensive minded "smashmouth" unit. Dun doesn't fit with that at all. To me, that's completely Dahntay. And not to mention, Dahntay is pretty clearly outplaying Dun.
Then of course, instead of doing and either or, we could use both situationally. But I think that second unit especially, needs to create some chemistry, so moving guys in and out of it might hurt it.
So, what does everyone else think? I'm one of the few that really likes what Dun brings to the table. But I think, right now at least, it'd be best if we went with PG/Brandon/Dahntay.
Anyway, I'm also interested in seeing what Vogel was do. It's so much more fun to be interested than to dread..
