how can i guy that cant do anything better than me on the offensive end, help a team that showed last night that they will have to be creative in scoring throughout the season.
put hayes on the bench where he belongs. Sure he got 3 steals last night, but the rockets really need to have the threat of all five positions scoring this year. That seemed pretty clear to me after watching just one game. Hayes is a perfect guy to be a third string option to use up fouls against bigs. thats about it.
