While a lot of us criticise many of Nate's decisions, we have to remind ourselves that he has an incredibly tough job. Dealing with all the adversity that he has had over the years, this year is incredibly tough. KP has Pritchslapped his way into building a team with too much depth. I'm sure that's a problem that Nate is willing to work with however. Nate is faced with a lot of conflicting challenges: making the playoffs, winning now, building for the future, and being as fair as possible to foster good competition in practice.
With all of these conflicts however, is it a good idea to give out spot minutes to players (especially shooters/finesse players not necessarily bangers/hustle guys)? We all saw Sergio pressing a lot last year and now we are seeing Bayless presing as well. Frye is having a hard time finding a shooting rhythm when he plays spot minutes as well. I'm wondering if you all feel its beneficial to give spot minutes to a player or not? On one hand our inexperienced guys need a shot, so that we can evaluate them and for them to improve. On the other hand giving spot minutes can cause them to press, make mistakes they otherwise wouldn't have, lose self-confidence, and make it tough for them to get in a rhythm.
