    wish bubu could play

    with our season long inconsistent bench, would be nice to have one more option out there for a spark. i know he wasn't exactly an offensive juggernaut, but he could at least spell the starters for a few minutes without much of a drop off in production. he plays good D and makes good decisions.

    fred's hands must be tied on this. no other reason to not play him when we only go 7 deep in terms of meaningful minutes. keeping him on the bench could be costing us games now and in the future.

    guess you can wish in one hand and **** in the other and see which one gets full first though.

    bummer the way things panned out for him.

    BuBu has not played all season. Playing him now would hurt the team.


    Just Win.

    I have a hard time believing he would hurt the team in situations like Saturday. Nothing against Naz or Thomas but it wasn't their night. I don't blame them for continuing to shoot because thats what they are there to do, but it really couldn't have hurt to see what Bubu could do.

    Re: wish bubu could play

    Regardless of whether you think he was innocent or guilty, right or wrong, or whatever it may be, it's glaringly obvious he's not going to play (maybe briefly on senior night). I really wish people would just move on. It seems he's happy just to be part of the team, so I don't know why people continue to ***** and moan. It is what it is.

    Here come the Bubu haters, and the team chemistry experts, that know nothing about this team, or probably any team sports for that matter.

    I don't think he will play any more than briefly on Saturday, but that doesn't mean it is right. I also agree that Bubu is happy. I just think that saying he would hurt the team is an incredibly misguided statement.

    He won't play at all. It will be a close game and there won't be an opportunity. I hope it gets to the point that he can get in thoguh.
