That's the one thing I don't care for about Clifford. I love the man outside of that. But, this strategy goes horribly wrong when you have a rookie/young guy completely outplaying the vet in front of him and yet, he still gets no mins.

I know he's explained it before about how if you play a young guy too early it can destroy their development. BUT, there is a very thin line there that you could end up hurting them if you don't play them enough either...

I think most people that watched last year could guess that. Clifford isn't going to give young guys run over a vet that's ready to go now.

this isnt the old Bobcats teams that are still looking to build a team.. we are trying to win games now and make the playoffs and contender for the Eastern Conference title.. leave the rookies on the bench and let the vets- who you know will produce- get the minutes and get the Ws

 

let the rookies come in 3rd string and garbage time

If PJ comes in and starts lighting it up, Clifford might extend his PT in that game, but not consistently.  Everyone was frustrated last season when they wanted more Zeller and less McRoberts, be ready for more of the same.

Vonleh simply isn't ready to contribute from a physical stand point. PJ isn't ready mentally, and I think it showed in Summer League. But I think PJ is more ready to contribute and I think there is a chance that by season's end he is earning decent minutes off the bench.

I think Vonleh is a lot further away, his body looks great but his body still has to mature (if that even makes sense). Right now, despite being 240 pounds he plays too weak. Once he grows into his body I think he can become a big time player. But to steal a line from the draft, he is two years away from being two years away. I hop the FO and fans have the patience to give him the proper time to fully develop, which may not be till his second contract

Both will see time on the court, we just won't depend on them to make significant contributions.

Put simply, if Hendo is still on this team, then PJ is 4th on the depth chart at SG.  There's not much room for minutes there.

Henderson sees a lot of time on the court and I still don't depend on him to make a significant contribution.

Whenever Bonnell posts something half quoted and half un-quoted, I'm instantly skeptical.
