Tawn or Clark

Assuming Pau is starting again, which player would you like to be our primary backup front court player going forward?

Re: Tawn or Clark

I'd start Clark and play Pau 30 MPG off the bench. Jamison can backup the 3/4 and play about 20 MPG.

Re: Tawn or Clark

Earl "The Whirl" Clark.

Earl Basketball.

Although I must say Antawn finally found the 3 that's been missing all season long, thereby making D'Antoni's decision a bit tougher. But still got to go with the energy guy.

Besides, they both suck on defense but The Whirl at least tries. And he can learn to play defense...he's got time on his side.

Re: Tawn or Clark

Developing Earl as a rotation/possible starter down the road seems like a nice scenario. I do like Jamison too though.

Eazy Earl for defensive purposes. We don't have a problem scoring.

Re: Tawn or Clark

Play Jamison as the backup PF and Earl as the backup SF.

Re: Tawn or Clark

I think pau should come off the bench when he gets healthy. He should play center when Dwight is out and be the focus of the 2nd unit. He can play some PF with Dwight at C for the rest of his minutes. Hopefully with fewer minutes he can play harder on those sore knees of his.

I think Clark should stay in the rotation. He just brings an athletecism on defense that we have not had all year. I do like Jamison though. I think he will be able to get minutes still but mostly as a backup 3.

Or the opposite. Jamison is better on the outside and clark likes to catch the ball closer to the basket.

Not sure what you mean. Hill was active in the paint and relentless around the rim. Clark floats around the perimeter and loses balance in the paint if someone exhales around him.

I'm leaning towards Clark for his defensive versatility.

Re: Tawn or Clark

Having an athletic SF/PF (Clark) who can play defense and rebound changes the complexity of this team. It's why I'm such a proponent of moving Pau for Smith or Gay. Easier said than done of course.

Re: Tawn or Clark

I think Earl Clark is your guy. I was thinking you guys would find a hidden gem with the D'Antoni system. Initially, thought it would be Jodie Meeks, but Earl Clark has been the guy you needed find. He's a perfect D'Atoni player.

Pau should be the 2nd-unit guy, maybe finish the fourth quarter so he doesn't cry.
