If McInnis can provide some scoring, maybe 5-8 points off the bench, then yea, I think he should be back in the rotation. Flip-flop between him and Vaughn. If you need D, go to Vaughn. If you need offense, go to Jeff.
he seems to be quite complacent with it for that matter.Netted- said:I like McInnis right were he is, cheering on the bench. He's very good at that.
The biggest key of all is NOT BLOW THE DEFENSIVE ROTATIONS.Intense Enigma said:If he can atleast 6 ppg of the bench,score throw the offense,and ofcourse play some D.
Welcome back Jeff.
Kidd's minutes are most important. The Nets can't have him play 42-44 minutes in the first round. A lineup of McInnis, Wright, Cliffy + one or two of the big 4 would be o.k. if McInnis can contribute positively.Kidd Karma said:Come playoff time Kidd will see 42-44 minutes a night when it matters. I don't think it would matter who we put in there for 4-6 minutes. We'd probably see VC run the show with Zoran and Wright playing alongside if RJ sits.
Its his decision to pick up the option for next year not ours.dunbladekilla said:are you people serious? did u even watch mcinnis earlier this year? he was an absolute turnstyle on D, blew rotations, and pounded the ball at the top of the arc for the first 15 seconds of every possession. he has ZERO value for this team. he wont sniff playing time for the nets EVER AGAIN. theres no way we pick up his option. we could use that money a lot better.
u can't mess with the defensive chemistry of the team right now. he doesnt provide enough offense to make the trade-off.
DAMN! i thought it was a team option! in that case mcinnis will definitly exercise it and come back seeing as he has little to no value right now.Grandmazter3 said:Its his decision to pick up the option for next year not ours.
a 7man rotation is a major disadvantage in the regular season but come playoff time the size of the bench on everyones team shrinks. a 7man rotation in the playoffs will work fine. look at the Pistons! sure if we had an guard it would help, but its not the end of the world.Aurelino said:The Nets don't have depth. As of now, they have a 7 man rotation (with Planinic, Murray and Wright playing sparingly). If they want to go deep in the playoff, any contribution off the bench is a big contribution.
The Pistons have McDyess on the bench who is better than any bench player on the Nets. They are also trying to get more minutes from Delk and Hunter who will no doubt be used in the playoffs. I think an 8 man rotation is o.k. 7 is too thin. Also, how much time did Planinic and Murray take to break the rotation? If those two had played consistently, this would be a non-issue. There is still time , although I also think Frank will likely go with a 7 man rotation.dunbladekilla said:a 7man rotation is a major disadvantage in the regular season but come playoff time the size of the bench on everyones team shrinks. a 7man rotation in the playoffs will work fine. look at the Pistons! sure if we had an guard it would help, but its not the end of the world.
its better to stick with what works then attempting to insert a player into the rotation who:
1) hasnt played in months
2) couldnt even break the rotation when he was healthy
3) was of mediocre talent to begin with
4) cant play D when it is of such importance to this team, especially in the playoffs
