    Fish should have paid attention on his way home to Gloria, prevent the Grizzly Barnes from ambushing him

    they might be similar, but durability is a factor, as is future payroll cost.

    plus one is light skinned

    I suppose he can't have a Houston game every game.

    It happens. And luckily Luke noticed and sat him for the pivotal stretch.

    I was half-kidding but yeah he is what he is; a 10-15 minute energy big. I blame Luke for mishandling his minutes and playing him at C. Kuzma should start at PF with Nance backing him up. Nance with 20+ minutes is bad news for us, more often than not.

    He needs a teacher to help him find his value and grow his game. If mark madden is teaching him to be mark madsen, then this is what you get.

    Ha. Corrected. But now that I think about it, a little Raiders spirit wouldn’t hurt him.

    Larry will never be more than a role player as long as he's this lost offensively. He provides so little to the team when he's not aggressive, especially on the offensive end. I don't mind that his shot volume is incredibly low, but if it's going to be limited, he needs to be efficient in those opportunities. If he's not going to shoot even mid-range jumpers, then get aggressive and try to dunk f***ing everything. Throwing up soft crap at the rim isn't going to cut it.

    I thought Nance had a "guide" tip in attempt last night that missed everything. Made me laugh to keep from being angry.

    I'm not saying I would actively shop Nance, but I certainly wouldn't mind him being a sweetener in a deal if we could upgrade our team. I see all the hook shots and bunnies that he misses and makes me shake my head in disappointment. With all the hustle he can give us on occasions and nice looking posters we need a lot more from him and I'm now at the point of thinking he may just be this kind of player for his career. A more athletic Nick Collison (role player)

    Nothing we don't already know... But it's always good to know that our astute speculation is backed up by "sources".
