How can I take you seriously if you don't understand that there is a lot more to playing basketball that veterans already KNOW how to do in order to win ball games. That is why they get the minutes. We are not a rebuilding team that can afford to give a ton of minutes to rookies. This team made a commitment to going as far as they can. A win now situation. How many rookies got playing time for the Spurs on their way to the championship last season? How many for the Warriors or Cavs this season. The reality is that rookies seldom get significant minutes on teams trying to win a championship unless they are a superstar type player like Magic and Bird were, especially when there are proven veterans ahead of them. Get over it.
The spurs started Kyle Anderson this season and he played rotation minutes during the regular season I don't know if he played or not in the playoffs but he did get minutes during the year. GS doesnt have any rookies unless you wanna count Mcadoo but I'm not counting him.
Cleveland has been playing Delledova the whole season and he's an undrafted second year player that didn't play last season.
Atl is playing Muscala who was overseas most of his rookie season so this is his first year in the league full time and he's got minutes and almost won a playoff game for them.
So I'm missing the part where teams that are going all in don't play their young players. That seems to be exclusively a grizzly thing.
Vets like VC aren't developing anything new at this stage whatever he has to give he gives whether he starts comes off the bench or in scrub minutes you will still get the same thing. I didn't say Adams needed all of VC minutes but get could have gotten some of them but to say he didn't deserved to play at all is wrong.
