    You guys are blinded by how much Corey Brewer sucks.

    KJ is still very raw and needs more time to develop. Signing KJ was a "for the future" move for a team trying to "win now" and it shows. It's ridiculous seeing you guys clamor for him. He wont be relevant at all until next year at the earliest.

    He had one good game and has looked bad in almost every other opportunity.

    The only reasons anyone wants to see KJ are because of how disastrous this season has been(need something exciting), how terrible brewer has been(backup qb syndrome), and needing some hope for the future.

    This team needs to go with:

    Bev/Goudelock
    Harden/Terry
    Ariza/Harden/Beasley
    D-Mo/Beasley
    Dwight/Capela/D-Mo

    For some reason our coach is too dumb to realize this.

    KJ isn't an answer to anything.

    I like him too, especially because I enjoy watching our young players develop.

    His time is not now though..

    How do you develop a guy you only put in to foul. You wanna judge him by the fact that JB put him in when we were down by 20 in an intense game. He barely has any playing time this year we don't know what we have. KJ is the answer to not playing Brewer so many minutes. It's funny how awful Brewer is and yet KJ fumbles a couple of passes the only time he's looked bad really this year and you already make a KJ thread.

    KJ gives the team better defense then Sewer though which this team needs. Sewer not only is sporadic on offense but is idiotically bad on defense. The team needs the defense KJ can provide.

    We are not competing for a title. How do you expect him to get better by rotting on the bench. Brewer is such a negative out there it won't hurt us at all to play KJ. He at least plays defense and can rebound.

    Don't quite understand the fascination of McDaniels.

    If you guys think he is bad, just hope that the certified bust Dekker never plays any meaningful minutes

    Mauri had a disastrous off season

    Lawson failed
    KJ not yet worth it
    Drafted Dekker a scrub
    Overpaid brewer

    And yet you have fools calling him one of the best GM. LOL

    of course he' snot gonna be that good. he's a very raw player like you said. the way this saeson has been, they should've eased kj into the rotation. instead they randomly play him in the toughest part of the season.
    rockets desperate for defense andthats whta kj brings, but failed to utilize him properly.

    The other problem is that you guys think getting playing time is gonna magically help him develop.

    That's not always the case, especially in the case of very athletic players who lack fundamentals. It often makes things worse for them. What's best for KJ is to keep practicing with the team and work extra hard in the off-season.

    Next year is gonna be his chance if he's still on the team.

    Have you ever played team basketball? High School? College? Im guessing the answer is no. SO just for a lesson the way to get better playing ball is to play more ball. Nothing beats playing the actual game. Again Corey Brewer has been bad all year there was no reason not to give KJ some PT and see how good he could get. Especially with his athleticism and defense. You don't just throw someone in at the end of the season and expect them to just exactly what you want you have to teach and develop sometimes.

    Well when your coach puts you in a game to FOUL versus doing something constructive such as chasing Reddick around the perimeter I can see why he's not consistent. I'd be confused too...hence why he has a good game and then turns around and looks bad the next like tonight. First half tonight JB brings him into the game ito intentionally foul Jordan and then comes in late in the game when it's basically over to perform. Cluster Fluck in my opinion. Oh and just to add...Montrez comes in LATE in the game when he could've been utilized much earlier when it would've MATTERED.

    KJ can't do any worse than Brewer or Ariza chasing down the likes of Reddick and Greene of the Spurs..the Rocket Killers. Ariza isn't fast enough to keep up all the time like tonight..not his fault just the way it is when he's called upon to guard the toughest guards night in and night out as it is...all my opinion. JB to stubborn to give this concept a shot

    You usually have no idea what you're talking about.

    This is no different. Save your lessons for yourself.
