Reggie Jackson is so much better than Fisher it's not even funny, yet they get the same amount of minutes. And I'd be willing to bet Jeremy Lamb would be good for 5-7 PPG on decent efficiency if he was getting 15 MPG and had been getting consistent minutes most of the year. But nope, he's wasting away dominating inferior talent in the D-League, while we've got 500 year old Derek Fisher playing 15 minutes a night, jacking up and bricking bad shots, and getting his washed up ass owned over and over again on defense.

Fisher and Perkins combined scoring stats over the last 5 games: 24 points on 10/35 shooting



Lamb is putting up 21/5/3 on 50% shooting in the d-league, so he must have some game He could probably put up 7 or 8 PPG on decent efficiency and he would play much better D than Fisher.

Brooks

Brooks
This is something most OKC fans have been wondering for awhile now. Lamb is obviously too good for the D-League at this point, and has shown in limited NBA minutes he's at the very least a capable 3-point shooter. And if he was getting minutes with Durant and Westbrook, he'd be getting the same wide-open looks Fisher gets, but he'd actually be making some of them.

Brooks is the most stubborn coach in the league and it's far and away his worst quality as a coach.

The whole team is in a bad 3PT shooting slump right now, which would explain some of their losses and two unexpected close games with the Magic. It came to a head in that Denver loss where we missed like 17 or 18 3's in a row...

Last 6 games....

vsORL - 4/13
@DAL - 5/21
vsDEN - 4/25
@MEM - 2/18
@ORL - 5/21
vsPOR - 4/11

That's a combined 24/109, which is an awful 22% for a team that's been top 3 in the league in 3P% all year at around 37-39%.

From Darnell Mayberry's blog:

http://blog.newsok.com/thunderrumbli...03-blazers-83/

Brooks was asked after the game his level of trust in Jackson today versus two or three months ago. Brace yourselves.
Quote:
“I think he’s improving, there’s no question,” Brooks said. “He still has a lot of things that he will continue to get better at. But I think he’s done a good job of working with our coaches and improving day to day. But he’s in a good position. He’s on a good team. And he’s going to get better but he’s not going to get a lot of time right now. But I think what he’s done with his time he’s made the most of it and he’s going to continue to improve. Just playing behind Russell there’s not a lot of minutes. I’ve said it many times but the minutes that he’s had he’s done well with them.”

For f**k's sake Brooks, take the 15 minutes you're giving to Fisher to go out there and jack-up and miss 3-5 shots and provide no defense, and spread them evenly between Reggie Jackson, Ronnie Brewer, and Jeremy Lamb. Or Jackson, Lamb, and Liggins. Or, if you don't want to all of a sudden start giving minutes to a rookie this late in the season, fine, then add 5-6 more minutes to Jackson's PT, 5-6 more to Brewer's PT, and 5-6 more to Collison's PT.

Seriously, how can someone be this stubborn and oblivious to the FACT that Fisher provides absolutely nothing on the court?
