I really would like to see Bill Walker get some court time this year and puzzled to why he has not been put on the active roster yet, considering he is playing well in the minors and that minutes are now available at the back up small forward spot since Daniels is out hurt.
I think Walker is exactly what the team needs - a strong, athletic, small forward who can guard opposing big, quick, strong, athletic small forwards that give Pierce, Daniels, Tony Allen problems.
He is very athletic, quick and strong like a bull, is very tenacious on defense and is built for such a job.
I think also his fresh youth full legs would be great bonus coming off the bench.
He also is not shabby offensively since he has some great power offensive moves to the hoop and proven by his 32 point game the other day in the minors.
I think getting him some minutes to prime him to add him to the playoff roster would be great since we will need a wing defender like him in the playoffs.
His physical play, tough defense and 6 fouls would come in handy in the playoffs like say when we play against players like Lebron, when such a player is on a role and Pierce, Daniels, can not contain him or are in foul trouble etc.
I think this is the best time this year for us to put Walker on the court and give him a serious look and give the kid a chance to show us what he has.
Does any one else agree?
