For a guy who has NY area roots, he seems to lack the boldness and creativity you'd expect from a New Yorker in his field of coaching. Even when he deviates from his usual rotations and plays Copeland or Butler, you can literally see him sitting on the bench biting his nails furiously like a cartoon character. It's as if he doesn't trust himself or his players. It's unbelievable. I think starting Turner at PG would be a good idea simply because he'd put offensive pressure on the opposing teams PG. Not to mention, he's a bigger offensive threat than Hill, and his passing ability might just get West and Hibbert the ball more. Evan's ability to get into the lane and dish, will result in lots of points for Hibbert and West.
As for the bench, please play LaVoy Allen. The guy had 1 game where he reached 13pts, 8rbnds, and 2 blks. Ian has played so many games for us and can't even reach those sorts of numbers in 5 straight games. Playing Copeland with Scola worked in the Bulls win, why did Vogel go away from that again? Also, how about letting Hill be back up PG for the rest of the season, until CJ gets back. Then Hill moves to back up 2 so he can be more offensive minded. The bench could be for now....
S. Hill or Butler
When CJ gets back.....
But this thread is more something for us to chew on in this off day. Vogel probably won't even make any changes in the next game. He has no courage and fears deviation. I've never seen a coach so afraid of change with his own players. It's unreal. Also on the subject of Copeland, he's a shooter. He will never develop a rythm until he gets consistent minutes. This yanking him in 5 minutes and then playing him 16 minutes some games is killing his groove. Look what happened last night, Scola was the hot man in the first half. But only played 2 minutes in the 2nd half. Is Vogel on drugs or something? I've seen drunks with more consistency than this guy.
