    This is a dude who has basically gotten no consistent burn on the court for 1 1/2 seasons. He has skill and has a lot of rust and nerves to shake off. He needs both time and the right role to find rediscover his rhythm.

    I can dig it.

    I like his aggressive nature, but rather than worrying about getting buckets, I wish he'd channel the majority of his pent-up energy to wreaking havoc on defense. That's the one area where I think he could potentially blossom into a great player, whereas he's relatively average/slightly above average in most other facets of the game. He's physically imposing and freakishly athletic, and could really carve out his niche in this league as a get-in-your-grill type of defensive stopper.

    He has the tools to consistently impact the game on defense NOW, while he's still a project w/ a shaky jumper on the other end. Hard-nosed, feisty D will lead to easy buckets in transition/opportunities in the open floor, where he excels.

    I hope he finds his groove. May not be in Houston, but I'd really like to see Terrence put it together. He seems like a good-hearted dude... like he desperately seeks approval and wants to do right.

    There are players out there who have easier access to tap their potential than others.
    Terrence does not belong to the first group.

    I may be being a tad harsh, but did he even need the dribble? It kind of forced him into the rushed one-had pass.

    Would have won with Budinger, would not have gone 1-8.

    Terrence just called you guys FAT. And he also wants to take y'all to dinner.

    I'm down to eat. He better not be cheap.

    Instead Butler would have gone off for 25+ I'm sure.

    Actually the reasons Budinger doesn't see minutes are
    his inconsistent shot

    inconsistent energy level, he is still capable of throwing in 18 to 20 points a given night, can't get off his own shot efficiently

    He has improved on Defense, now he is a net zero or close to it -1 to -3, not much difference

    little rebounding, assist, block numbers if you consider how athletic and skilled he is.

    I think he should of been sent to the D-League, just to get some playing time. He has talent, but not too much in the head just like Von Wafer. If TWill had the mentality to drive the basket each time he gets the ball, he would get a lot of PT possibly a bigger role, but he just has to shoot those jumpers.

    I think people kind of overrate showcasing. I don't think it happens as much as people think it does. McHale is the kind of coach where if you play well in practice, you will play. That's probably all that's going on right now.

    what's so good about that? This is what he should have been doing from the start instead of whining on twitter.
