Benching rookies and experimenting


Some of you know about claims that Doc has a bad habit of benching rookies and not giving them significant room or play time. Well, given than we have E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson this year, those claims are returning. It seems that Doc is kinda scared in some way, that he doesn't jeopardise the season, the game or whatever.

My idea is that he plays Moore and Johnson for about 10 minutes (or more, if they get a hang of it) when we play against poor time such as New Jersey, Milwaukee, Washington, Charlotte and so on. In games against those teams there will be less of a risk of losing, and the rookies can practice, get confidence and show off.. And besides, Doc can easily get them out if thing aren't going so well. It's a shame that quality player like Moore, Johnson (and Bradley also, yes) go to waste. Just remember what happened to Darko Milicic: he got drafted by Detroit at number 2 in the first round, in a draft class which consisted of Dwayne Wade, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kendrick Perkins, Chris Kaman, Kirk Hinrich, Chris Bosh and others.. Only LeBron was ahead of him in the draft.. However, he never received significan playing time in the Detroit Pistons, and a guy which was concidered one of the most talented players in the world at that time, went to waste..

So, please don't let that happen to Bradley (even if he isn't a rookie), Moore and JJJ.
