1. Our bench completely sucks
2. We can't leave Pau or Howard on the bench.
Peace is a rhythem player or else I wouldn't have an issue with him coming off the bench but thats not good for him. He needs playing time to be good. Meeks can be effective immidiately.
Ron Artest still got 30+ minutes last night because Pau was getting most of his time playing the 5. It's not like Artest is switching places with Meeks and getting 20 minutes a night. He played well and stayed aggressive.
This whole scoring punch off the bench thing is being way overblown. Ron Artest gave them 17/7 4 steals and a couple 3s because he played 36 minutes. How is that any different from Meeks playing 30+ minutes the last few games and putting up scoring numbers in the same range? It's not that bad of an idea.
Pringles' encouraging of older players to run up and down the court jacking up 3s is way worse. Instead of punishing Charlotte with a slower, methodical half-court game, they tried to outrun and outgun two of the fastest players in the league in Sessions and Walker.
