I want to concentrate on the point guard situation because it is truly puzzling to me. We know that Jarrett is struggling and Blake is playing his normal ho-hum 6-10pt 3rb 5asst basketball(which I do like). Nobody has won the point guard job, although I would argue that Jack has lost it at this point, but thats not my question or point. I want to concentrate on some of Nate's decisions with the point guard rotation.
Why does Nate afford Jack such a long leash? Sergio comes in during the 2nd quarter of the NOH game and provides a legitimate and noticable spark. Sergio scores on 3 consecutive plays and then dribbles the ball off his foot. The result: yanked, jack back in the ball game to finish the 2nd half. Jack continues to struggle in that quarter and Nate continues to play him. Nate even gives Jack the ball to end the half when he has done virtually nothing right, and Roy is on the floor!?!?!?
On to the houston game, Jack plays awful and Green comes off the bench before Sergio. How does Sergio not get into the game when we clearly needed an offensive punch and change of tempo? I was utterly confused and then something hit me. I think we are shopping Jarrett Jack. His situation reminds of magloirable last year. He would come in and struggle, and Nate would just let him play(at least before the trading deadline when his play was less than good). Nate's pg rotation has me baffled and the only thing that makes sense to me is that they are showcasing Jack right now, and maybe Jack knows it or even quietly asked to be traded behind closed doors(learn from this Kobe). He is the only point guard that doesnt fit into the upstyle game, and he has shown why in these 1st 3 games. So please give me some insight if you have it. Are we shopping Jarrett Jack? Whats up with Nate's pg rotation? Why does Sergio recieve DNP's after solid play the game before?
ps I have a unrelated poll but I was curious what the results would be. Simple question: Who has been the most consistent blazer so far this year? (I purposely left out Jack for pretty obvious reasons)
