He has always had the opportunity to dominate the ball, but this year is very different.
I would like to give him some more time to get use to the system. I'm not sure I would give up on him just yet. Aaron Brooks looks decent, but he is going to get abused by bigger guards. His speed is nice, but he still has a lot of work to do to become a legit NBA guard. As of now, we have Rafer and Mike running the point, so I think it would be better if we give Francis the minutes behind T-mac and Bonzi.
It's going to be difficult to implement Steve into the rotation. I hope it works out though because I'm a huge Steve Francis fan.
Yeah, but those minutes behind Tmac/bonzi are luther head's minutes. I honestly don't think Francis fits either. He just doesn't look like a 'system' guy out there. Head's looked good in the offense. Francis hasn't. I think Francis is the guy who makes the 12 man rotation but is the 'odd guy out.' I think Brooks goes to the Dleague with Landry and Novak.
