Sergio el Grande

It's been discussed a bit in the comments, but the need for Sergio to get a longer look deserves a space of its own. Here are a few reasons I think Sergio should get more burn.

1. Sergio is entertaining.  This aspect of the game is not spoken of much in this space; presumably because everyone is trying to be taken "seriously" and serious sports fans do not acknowledge that sports are entertainment.

Whatever the reason, the fact is plain; this team is far more interesting with Sergio on the floor than without him.  We are not going to win many games this year, and I'd much rather the time I wasted watching the Kings was spent being entertained than otherwise.

2. Sergio is the quickest of our PG's - and Ziller has oft mentioned and provided the statistical proof that our team does better with a quicker pace.  Sergio seems to push the ball nearly every time down the court - much to my delight and to the benefit of the team.

3.Beno seems to need competition to get fired up - Sergio is an ideal candidate to fire up Wabeno again, as he's seemingly in a mini-slump.  Ideally, Beno'd then play well for the next few weeks so we can get Lebron or someone for him.

Counterarguments

1. Sergio sucks at defense: Our whole team sucks at defense.  We are currently 27th in the league in PPG allowed.  GOD FORBID we should play Sergio and end up 28th.

2. Sergio has been successful in garbage time: therefore he will suck in non-garbage time.  This is ridiculous and incoherent.  We will not know if he will be good or bad in prime time until he is given those minutes.  And I recollect a game or two earlier in the year when he played down the stretch of some close games and generally acquitted himself well.
