Now with acquisition of Winslow, Josh can be energy guy off the bench.   Defensive specialist. 

His desires to be some type of point forward will always be a problem unless he dramatically improves this skill or finds another role like spot shooter. I can tell that has always been the root of his problems as a player. I mean he is a solid defender but its not like he is game changing like a Tony Allen (he is more like an Ariza) so he needs an offensive role.

Picture Tony Allen with the same offense but he is a B, B+ or even A- defender and not the A++ defender he was. Or an Ariza that cant shoot. Not very exciting.

Nah Josh can be a much better offensive player than Tony (won't touch TA defensively tho).   Keep in mind he will be in our offensive system so growth is a real possibility.     I think his problem initially at PHO was him trying to be more of a scorer on offense.   Thats what i read on there site as well.   When he buckled in and focused on defenses and passing they loved him.

Porzingus must use some extra strong hairspray.

Yeah, I just noticed. Doesn't look like even one hair has moved.

Dang looking at the guys left on the roster and how much they have been attacking defensively.      We have some serious athleticism on this team now

  • Ja
  • Brandon
  • Josh
  • Justise
  • Melton
  • Grayson
  • Jaren
  • Dillon
  • Tyus
  • Bruno

Only guys that really arent are  Marko,  SloMo and Jonas.      Now that Crowder and Solo are gone - they are gonna be blazin

JV was questionable tonight with right knee soreness. Does that explain him only getting 2 points in the half?
