Dante Exum WILL become a good player--but right now, he is a very inconsistent
player and some would probably say that Raul is a better option for the second
unit. Dante does not seem to respond well to being force fed reps and minutes,
especially against the better teams. He's going to get better at HIS pace,
but it's getting rather late in the season to have him disappear on certain
nights. Neto might not have the innate talent of Exum (who knows at this point)
but he facilitates other players better than Dante right now. I love Dante and I
think he has the drive to be a special player, but he seemed a little lost
against Houston and Raul seemed to want to tear their heads off.
If you want an interesting note on the non starters there are only two who have
zero assists in the last two games.
Injuries happen. Not everyone can be a Stockton or Malone. Think Whithey need to
be a part of the regular rotation.
I still get annoyed about injuries to players who should know how to take better
care of their bodies, but I do have to give coach Snyder credit for making
lemonade out of the lemons he has been dealt.
