I’m sure many of you think this would be a post about how badly we need a trade… which i hope something does happen… but its not! haha What i am suggesting is simply that we change the lineup a little bit.
I know i’m not the only person that thinks this, but Milsap is a much better 6th man than a starter! Which is not a bad thing at all but is actually something to be proud of… think of Jason Terry, Manu Ginobli, Glen Davis, Jamal Crawford… they aren’t starters, but they make a HUGE impact for there teams, and i believe Milsap is that player for us. We thought CJ would be that guy, be he’s just been to inconsistent and i feel would benefit from playing with Deron more.
So what i say is we go something like this…
Dwill, CJ, AK, Jefferson, and Fes.
That would open things up for Jefferson to have more freedom… instead of feeling like he’s sharing responsibility with milsap, he now knows he is the big man on the floor that has to produce. And i think that would make a huge difference. Not only just for jefferson… but our rebounding woes would hopefully go away with 7 footer out there. Cj would benefit from dwill creating opportunities for him. Fes would also pick things up
Then Milsap would be back in the spot where he has thrived the last 3-4 years. He would come in the 2nd and just dominate these 2nd tier players he would face. I hope he would swallow his pride and see that he could be a monster coming off the bench. Our 2nd unit needs more consistency, and that has been milsaps calling card!
So shakeup the roster a little bit and i bet we would see a huge difference!
