"'You're asking me how we get on the same page?' said Welsch. 'I don't know how to get us on the same page. I don't know if it's up to me. I could be the one who tries to calm things down when things are not going well on the court. It's hard to figure out because we spend only a few minutes on the court.'"
I hadn't thought of the fact that the second unit could stunt Jiri's growth a bit, but it does make some sense. I think he'll turn it around quickly and show the same promise that he did for the entire preseason. Its good that he's a competitor and good that he's not going to make a big stink about this, its bad that we can't keep everyone happy. That is the big downside to a 10 man rotation - players just won't get as much time as they are sometimes used to. And when they do, it could be with any number of different interchangeable pieces. It could take all year to build trust and cohesion in a situation like that.
