    I think the Rocket's marketing team would not want Green on the bench they are heavy marketing this guy

    You're right, but "Marketing" shouldn't drive Operations (it should accentuate, not determine). The likely starting lineup is Theis, Wood, Green, Porter and either Gordon or Tate. I just believe there is a better way to start developing our young players, but what do I know, I'm just a fan.

    This guy just has to start, this is ridiculous. He's so productive in his limited playing time. In a game they were down 30 he was only -8 in his 18 minutes. Even if he doesn't start, his minutes have to be increased, this is inexcusable.

    The Rockets will lose a bunch, and Silas will eventually shuffle players in and out of the starting lineup. Sengun will start at some point.

    reminds me of dmo case...great energy and playmaking, efficient scoring and passing but more playing time is given to more marketable guys and far more 3s over hands of defenders is being chucked than plays designed to get him the ball in the right place or for him to set other guys up....lololol

    Yeah, the problem is our deep bench guys are about the same level as our starters, we have a bunch of borderline NBA players right now, hoping that some of the young ones develop.

    I mean if you go by PURE efficiency - neither KPJ or Green would play all that much.....but what is the use of hanging close in a game when they both might become great players, but only by taking their lumps.

    We know that Tate, NWaba, Theis etc are never going to be THAT guy, and are great role player filler dudes, we should sell high on them now.

    Sengun doesn't have to adapt to the league. League has to adapt to Sengun

    Btw i think Alperen is more focused when opposite fans booing him and opponents tried to play over him . And the region he born in Turkey known for their aggresiveness and short temper. i am already sure the next wolves game if Alperen goes against KAT **** would go differently after that elbow and 1.

    You can tell he’s going to make some people mad. He won’t back down and he’s physical. Let the kid develop and I hope he drops some elbows

    Why the quotation marks and who are the Stoners? Some mob cousins of Big Til?

    Yes please start him so we can lose by 20 and not 30. Im sure someone will notice that the flaws of this team run deeper than the roster.

    Don’t care if he starts or not, just needs to play starter minutes. He deserves as much PT as any rookie or vet. Let the youngsters develop their games together.

    He HAS to start. Not only does the offense look better, but it benefits Wood's and Green's game. They play better when he is in.
