The last 2 key games that we have lost, reggie evans has not played a single minte in these game, what the heck is wrong with vinny, does he not realized that we were a subpar rebounding team until we signed him, the key things that hurt us in the lose to Lakers and Grizz, was Hustle/ 50/50 balls, rebounding, Defense. They need to get Reggie back in the game, hes the hustle thug type of player that gets in the heads of the opponents, and gives us second chances, defense.

opinions?

Its stupid, we were a subpar rebounding team until reggie arrive, and hes a good defender despite his heights, he's like our chuck hayes with better rebounding, aganst good teams we always get outrebounded and play lack luster defense reggie brings it, and creates possesions for us

I felt that we should have tried Reggie on Bynum when he was killing us last game. Maybe Reggie could have bothered him. He never got the chance.

He definitely needs some more minutes.

he needs to play, but lately he has been committing a lot of turnovers. he may be a great rebounder, but his hands are very clumsy. but still, we need him to play just cuz of the energy he brings. i didnt understand why we only played 8 players tonight. simmons could have been useful since young was useless tonight.

^ We should have at least seen if Simmons' shooting was hot.

yup. plus he does a lot of the intangibles like getting loose balls, deflecting passes, and hitting the corner three.

Vinny's rotations are amazingly dumb. I cant see why he's in love with KMart over Reggie. They both have good games and bad games. Today Kenyon had a bad game, Reggie should have been put in.

the only thing i can think of was that we needed scoring after falling behind by so much.

but even then it doesnt make sense that he doesnt get a single minute.

side note.

since that fateful game february 18th, ryan gomes has logged 14 minutes. crazy considering he was averaging something like 15-22 mins a game before that.

They played better defense and shot 50% against us. Maybe Reggie would have added more hustle and gotten us more rebounds...then we would have more chances to miss, lol.

This is one of the main reasons why VDN was/is in the hot seat and also why many of his players don't like him as much, and you will notice it a lot in the other players like last month.

He gives Foye 25 mins avegage, and than totally doesn't play him in one game

I'm not sure, but he may have some slight injuries, maybe VDN is trying to rest him.

Last couple I've seen him I thought I saw some bandages on his shoulder, plus he often has wraps around his lower back.

I don't get this either. Even if it was 10 minutes for Evans and Simmons, these 2 players could have brought some life to the team with just there hustle out there. Young was in lala land once again.

Reggie could have handled Gasol on the defensive end better than K Mart and Jordan did. Memphis smothered us with thier D at least we could have tried to match some of that by giving Reggie minutes. Hope he will get some minutes against Perkins in OKC.

Actually Evans is good for needed rebounds and hustle, but Martin's the better defender.

Simple breakdown....the numbers in the green=better, numbers in red=worse, when on the court.

Its obvious some guys play better at home...but if Reggie is one of those guys that plays better on the road I mean why not give him a shot?

Reggie is a fantastic bench player and from what i have seen comes on when we have a lead to give the offense a breather. However how about nulifying the offense even if we arent ahead. I guess he's only on a veterans minimum so doesnt cost much to have.

Pity as he's my fav bench player by a country mile, and it appears CP3 loves him, meaning its likely he'll stay on for next season.

the problem is two fold

  1. When the 2nd unit has K Mart and Reggie on the court our offense struggles we cant get points. Hence surrender big leads.

  2. KMart is a superior player to Reggie and can defend the center position much better than reggie.

Thats why reggies minutes have gone down...

Reggie has to play superior defense to a factor along with rebounding because he has no offensive game.

Does anyone else wonder how awkward it would've been if we kept Kaman after signing Reggie?

^I remember seeing an interview with Kaman saying he and Reggie made up lol. Reggie should take advantage of his superior skill of ball-handling come playoff time
