Hey Tom, Happy Holidays. As we head into the heart of the season, it is pretty apparent we have taken a whif with our draft class this year. I know they are young, but they have not played well enough to earn hardly any time while a guy we passed on Jamie Jaquez Jr. is tearing it up in Miami. Even Cam Whitmore is having a better g-league year than Jarace if we were just looking for a developmental project. Julian Strawther who we drafted and traded is doing better than any of our draft picks we kept. Two years ago we got Duarte who is now averaging 2.6 pts a game in SAC was a total bust for us. We got lucky with Benny last year. Don’t forget, we were the franchise that picked TJ Leaf over John Collin’s a few years back. Our roster has a lot of depth but they are all at a certain level which is good but will not take us over the top. We’re obviously still rebuilding and if that is the case, let’s give Aaron more minutes as well as Benny. Both should be starting and Bruce and Buddy should be coming off the bench. Anyway, coming back for the 5 game homestand in January. Hope we can win a couple of those.

Brown can be frustrated, but the reality is he hasn’t played well. He was brought in the help the defense, but it is worse than the defense last year. As I’ve said, that’s either scheme (coach’s fault) and/or the players aren’t that good (Brown’s fault). Brown is also shooting under 30% from 3. Why is he still starting? I mean, I know the answer ($$$), but the accountability BS from Carlisle rings even more hollow when Brown is still starting despite drinking up the gym.
