Glad to see Kris Joseph starting to get some run in Maine - even if the games haven't really started yet.
Joseph was one of the main attractions as the Maine Red Claws played an intrasquad scrimmage Saturday night at Edward Little High. He was one of the three leading scorers with 19 points, with Micah Downs and Wright. "It was cool," said Joseph, who got little playing time with Boston. "I haven't played up and down like this in a while."
If there's one thing young guys like him need, it is more reps with good coaching - which is pretty much the whole point of the D-League.
I fully expect to see Melo getting some nods for the Greg Stiemsma award of best defensive player in the D-League by the end of the year too.
