Other than DG reflecting on his days with the Giants and saying the answer might be on the roster, why so much faith in King and McNutt? Cruz was an anomaly ... and a lot of luck. For every Cruz there are 1000 that never materialized into anything. Seriously, they couldn't crack the regular active roster to get playing time last year. Why is one of them the answer for next year?
On a similar note, wasn't Chandler a pedestrian DT before the Panthers moved him to the OL. Did I miss his breakout season last year ... no. If we don't move an average RT to be a subpar LT, everything is OK because Chandler will fill that role? Really??
I never said that King or McNutt were going to be Victor Cruz. They're in the same spot as they were last year in the rotation, so if they are improved as players then as a whole, the group got better. In essence:
I assumed this thread was about MKG when I saw the title. I've been watching Barnes, and especially Lillard and Beal light it up in the playoffs and we have MKG who is the worst offensive wing in the NBA. I didn't want him then, now it's even more apparent.
Correct title, wrong player.
Barnes, the guy who is scoring 7.9 points per game on 38% in the playoffs this year, is "lighting it up"? MKG averaged 8.5 points on 52% in the playoffs. Yet he is the "worst offensive wing in the NBA" and Barnes is "lighting it up"?
