What's going on with Speights?
 
Does Eddie not like him? I saw with Brand out his minutes didn't even increase. Was it to matchup with the Hawks? Or is Speights just going to eventually fall out of rotation?

He's sorry a 6 foot 10 jump shooter who is a black hole on offense and plays no defense :wtf:

Yeah Eddie fell out of favor with Speights because all Speights does unfortunately is look to score. He doesnt look to do anything else most importantly on the defensive end. He's not having the best of seasons as you'd expect. One of the knocks was his passion, work ethic. I wont claim to know he isnt trying to improve. But during game situations he simply isnt showing improvement. He gets the ball and chances are? He's lookin to get it in the basket. He doesnt even do little things. And with being benched/demoted who knows if he is sulking/sour.

Damn that really sucks. I had high hopes for him this season.

I thought in the beginning of the year he was doing a fine job of getting the ball in the basket though.

I really can't wait till Eddie Jordan is gone. Bring in Avery Johnson, draft a decent big (hoping Monroe or maybe we'll luck out and get Cousins) and go from there. Dalembert's expiring contract will be worth something to someone midseason and we can probably pick up a decent player.

Jrue Holiday is the real deal. I'd like to move Louis Williams along with Dalemdumb and get a quality 2 guard perhaps. I guess we're stuck with Elton for a while.

Yeah I love the way Jrue is playing. Hes averaging 13/6/5 in the last 5 games and brings a lot of energy. I wasn't sure about him when we drafted him but he has proved me wrong.
