Don't tell me anything about 'they've to earn their minutes' crap because they're never allowed to be on the floor for more than 20 minutes a game at least once. NOT ONCE. You can't earn your presence if you're never given the chance to get into the rythum. And yes most players need at least 20 minutes in a game to do that.
Oh Give me a break. Rasho has had years to prove himself. I've never hated Rasho but lets not act like he hasnt had time..and a lot of it
Nazr didnt play that well this year and he didnt play that well down the stretch of the season which Pop actually mentioned...yet he got put back in the starting lineup. If Pop were trying to hide the guy or whatever that would have never happened
People have bashed Rasho and Nazr around here forever. now that it looks like Nazr isnt coming back its Pop's fault? gimme a break. Nazr played well last year but no one can say he looked like the same player this season..even when he was given time out on the court. he got opportunities. Usually players in a contract year play their best
