The Benching of Monk if very frustrating

Recommended Posts

Young players go through growing pains.  Monk happens to be one of the most potentially potent offensive player in some time and sure, his shot is off at the moment, but you don't bench that type of player.

I dunno, it's just frustrating.  He's obviously not going to be a bum and has long term NBA potential.  We've won recently but we need to play this kid if we're still willing to give this Bacon kid minutes.

Monk doesn't really do anything else but scoring so if his shot is off and he's taking bad shots all your left with is bad defense... Bacon is playing still because of defense... they play for a defensive minded coach so playing defense is a must..

I really like Monk and feel he should get burn at SG. I know Cliff loves size but we have seen a ton of players who are short become great two guards. Maybe with the Batum injury and Lamb in the starting lineup we will finally see Monk at SG where he is supposed to be. Also if he goes off in Q2 please play him early in Q3. Dont wait until Q4 and he be out of rhythm!

I feel like a large part of Monk not getting any playing time is our record. Clifford is scared to put a defensive liability on the floor (especially a rookie) while we're sub .500

Clifford not playing a rookie?    Not surprised, it was a big worry a lot of us had.

Still no Monk even with Batum out. Smh, this franchise will never progress past a borderline playoff team. Draft a game changer, and bench him. I had........ HAD hope.

Three minutes. Needed more on a night when no one could throw it in the ocean.

Yeah, but Clifford swears up and down that defense alone will win you games. His style is 1980s/1990s style of basketball. It just doesn't work when teams are stacked with scorers. We didn't draft Monk to play defense like MKG or Marvin do.

Lol some of you fugers would rather see Monk on the floor for 15 minutes and lose than not see him and win 3 in a row

Correlation does not equal causation.  

Doesn't mean we can't win with him.  It's silly to bench him at this point.  What good does it do for anyone?
