But after the last three games since that post I have to admit that Tyreke should be moved to the 3 spot. Not because he can't play the PG position, but because the SF's we have on this team should not receive another minute of playing time in my opinion. Also, after watching Thomas tonight, and his performances through the first few weeks of play, he deserves the extra time on the floor.
In fact Thomas should be getting the starting nod and extra minutes ahead of Jimmer, who just looks like a shadow of the player he was at college. He is not defending well, he jumps too much before he passes and what happened to this magical shot he is suppose to have? Until Jimmer gets some confidence play him off the bench in spots and tell him to quit thinking and just play. Yikes!
Starting Jimmer and Salmons together is like playing 3 on 5. Salmons is not doing anything well this season and I am not seeing any reason for hope at this point. It would be one thing if he was at least defending well, but geez, he gets beat all the time. I would love to scream give Donte a shot, but in the few minutes I've seen from him I have not been impressed. So with the giant void at the SF position I'd say it's time to pull the plug on Salmons, keep THorton at the 2 guard position, give Thomas some quality time with the starters, and let Tyreke dribble past the SF's he'll face.
So I will eat my words and say I am wrong, or at least until they get a legit SF on this roster, but Tyreke should be moved to the SF position. At least I will write and admit when I'm wrong.
