    Booker no PT

    What's going on with Booker not playing? You can see his frustration on the bench.

    I don't get it...what exactly does Percy bring that's better than Booker? Percy is like a black hole, the ball goes in but never comes out...not sure why his teammates even pass him the ball. Id be frustrated if I was Booker too.

    I think Percy must actually make a bunch of this stuff he throws up in practice.

    Atleast Booker can somewhat spread the floor by being a threat from 3....hes a better post defender in my opinion...and gets up and down the floor a heck of a lot better than Percy. Sorry, just never been a Percy fan.

    It takes Percy a lot longer to get his 3 fouls


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Re: Booker no PT

    Whats the difference though...Boomerang fouling and making them earn it at the line or Percy giving up layups

    Support and emotion. I've alway liked booker more than Gibson but seeing Booker mope on the bench today was pathetic. You see walk ons and back ups going crazy and then you see him slouched back.

    How about Naz Long though? Didn't play a minute, but tipped Fred off that the clock didn't start at the end of the game.

    Re: Booker no PT

    Have you seen Booker on the bench? He is as disconnected as a player can be. He comes in, plays 4 minutes and picks up 2 quick fouls. Pouts when he gets sat. He is obviously mad he lost his starting spot to Niang. I would rather see Percy out there, who doesn't pick up quick fouls and while he will shoot pretty much every time he touches the ball, at least he is engaged and playing for the team.

    Unless the coaches can get Booker back in to playing for the team and change his attitude, I don't really want him out there.

    Gibson passed it twice on offense today. I count now because it is so rare. I think he is still under 10 passes for the entire season though, not counting the outlet pass after the rebound.

    Others have mentioned it, but Percy looked great last year when Royce was dropping the ball in hs lap. When else did Percy look great this year? When Niang was driving and dishing to Percy. I don't know how well Percy is at creating his own shot. Seems to do best when someone can draw his guy away and a pass can be made to him.
