    KPJ has single-handedly forced Silas and the FO to actually run an efficient offense with its young core. I’m 100% sure he will see the improvement and work within the offense and his strengths to make the team even better. Thanks for resting up Scoot.

    KJP is a COMBO guard.

    He can start at PG just like Gordon has and do what Gordon has done. No issue with that.

    Plug KPJ as a wing or just have him bring the ball up like Green did tonight, and let Sengun initiate the offense. KPJ is a much better player as a scorer only.

    Fine - but yank him if he doesn't do that and just wastes 2/3 of the shot clock dribbling.

    well played.

    I’ve actually been hoping for some minor, incidental stuff to reduce the #s needing p/t. And a 2 x 3 rotational-out basis.

    KPJ is underrated on here, putting up 19/5/5 and getting clutch buckets. He is just out of position at starting point guard.

    I think that is the take of most people here. He is a talented player. With his talent he can become an all-star level player. He's just out of position.

    There are some people here that will still say he has character issues and those people I disagree with as KPJ has shown mostly maturity this season in terms of locker room and off court presence. He's definitely made a marked improvement in his personal life as a person.

    It's as simple as he's out of position.. He can still be the "Clutch guy" when called upon.. But damnit , don't force feed the PG duties on him every posession..

    Its not that simple as just plug kpj in and have him play a different role than what he's been playing. That's going to require some structure from Silas and discipline from KPJ to not revert to old habits.

    Waaaay back in preseason Silas was talking about using Sengun as an offensive hub and running more offense through him. But that didn't really happen nearly as much as it should have until recently.

    This KPJ having the ball as much and initiating has been a clear issue to almost everyone who watches this team, yet Silas doesn't really do anything to try to change it and KPJ doesn't take the initiative himself to get off the ball more.

    I think Silas is still a bad coach and as a bad coach I believe once KPJ comes back it will be the SOS. Or maybe this directive has come from Stone...Who knows...Either way, I don't expect for this team of losers to all of a sudden get it and for it to click when it's been in front of their faces the whole time.

    Look at Sengun doing PG work, effortless...while everything is struggle and looks forced for KJP
