You keep telling me that I have no evidence that he wouldn't be okay with that, but I can't imagine anyone in his scenario, who's used to being the big man on top, sitting through that.
Players don't like when you cut their minutes. Superstars like it less.
Maybe I'm misunderstanding this. You think the team should at some point deliberately make poor roster decisions to ensure poor performance for some reason? Maybe I don't really understand what the idea of a rebuild is. Given the young talent on our roster now, we would have to deliberately shoot ourselves in the foot to make a terrible team incapable of competing for a long period of time.
