is nate robinson the replacement or back up pg for derrick rose till he comes back?
Nope, Hinrich would start in replacement of rose, Robinson is more of a dynamic scoring punch of the bench, Hinrich is a better defender and a better floor facilitator, marquis teague would be spending some time in D-league, which would not be bad for him, 24hour access to gym, better playing time,
kirk will start as mentioned nate is a great spark off the bench
Bynum May Be Sidelined Several Weeks: When the Philadelphia 76ers acquired Andrew Bynum, they knew they were getting one of the best centers in the league. They also knew they were getting a 24-year-old who has a history of serious injuries that have kept him sidelined for long stretches. Before Bynum could play a single game with the Sixers, he was forced to sit out due to a bone bruise in his right knee. Now, Bynum has underwent Synvisc-One injections in both of his knees.fweqe423
Ever since these new-look Timberwolves showed up in Minneapolis, the talk has been about chemistry and relationships, the intangible things that are supposed to translate and show on the court.
Then, even more recently, there's been another emphasis on combinations, on getting players together on the court to find their best matchups and positioning.]-0=0
And then in Tuesday's 114-81 win over Israeli Super League team Maccabi Bazan Haifa, it began to make sense. There was visible chemistry, and the combinations kept on coming. The likely opening-night starters – Kevin Love, Nikola Pekovic, Brandon Roy, Luke Ridnour and Andrei Kirilenko – played in tandem for the first time, and suddenly, it evolved from awkward to enjoyable.]90-0
Moments after the game, his cheeks still flushed from his 28 minutes on the court, Kirilenko found the words to capture what the Timberwolves have been talking about all this time. There's no need to expound any further, really, or to explain why these vague C-words matter – not after Kirilenko waved his hands as if he was conjuring some kind of spell and put it in so few words:lklh
“It is a process for a rookie,” Casey said. “He is not that far behind because the one thing he can do that makes up for a multitude of sins is he can shoot the ball at the end of the day and that’s part of the process too. The other part is you just can’t make a three and give up a three at the other end every possession. He is learning, believe me. This doesn’t mean Terrence Ross is not going to play for us or not a part of it. He is going to be big for us. He is our future, but right now he is just a typical rookie and you could stop every play for him [to teach]. He is learning.”
Taking a look at each NBA players’ “True Shooting Percentage,” which takes into account field goals, free throws and three-point shots, we start to find a little more value in Harden. Last season he ranked fourth in the NBA, trailing only Tyson Chandler, Steve Novak and Manu Ginobili with a .660 TSP. The next chart down is number of wins added, where Harden (10.0) ranks third among shooting guards behind Dwyane Wade (12.8) and Kobe Bryant (12.7). Now we’re starting to see why Houston thinks Harden has a great deal more upside than he has shown in his first three seasons.
