    Yet, Nurse loved McCaw. I think if Malachi just brought the ball up, passed it to Fred or Pascal.. and then sat in the corner, he'd be in the rotation.
    Flynn isn't 6'7. McCaw played cause Nurse trusted him but also cause he was a guard who wasn't 5'10.

      We also have Bonga on the team, and he's not getting any minutes.

        Things we found out about McCaw:

        1) He wasn't actually 6'7". He was 6'5"
        2) He had no real guard skills.
        3) He was hugely overrated as a defender.
        4) He couldn't be trusted.

        He was taller than Lowry and FVV, so we can give him that.

          Cause he's an end of the bench guy. Most teams don't play their 14th man.

            McCaw should have been the 14th man too.. just saying that Nurse has his favourites.. and sometimes it's not obvious who those guys are. It's not just the best guys or the the guys with the best IQ. Or the best defenders. Because none of that explained his love for McCaw who was getting over 20mpg.

              Every coach has his favorites. The explanation for why he played McCaw isn't complicated or mysterious. McCaw was a big guard whom Nurse trusted in the Raptors schemes. You don't have to agree with that (I sure didn't) and it was a disaster when he was on the court but the rationale was clear.

              The reason why Banton and Champagnie aren't playing is cause they are green. Dragic is in Miami. Flynn doesn't suit the style of play. Yuta is out right now. Bonga isn't better than the other options available on a team with 1,500 forwards. That's the team. Out of that group, there aren't any guys that you need to move heaven and earth to get on the floor right now. Banton and Champagnie have shown they can play and they'll continue to get looks but they ain't ready for consistent minutes.

                Mccaw played in 5 games last year for a total of 33 minutes. How is that love?

                Nurse plays Mccaw more minutes than he ever played Mccaw.

                  McCaw has been hurt (a lot). In 2020, when we were on a 60 win pace and had Lowry, Fred, Norm, etc.. he averaged over 24mpg. Only played in 37 games and not because of DNP-CD's.. he was hurt then too.

                  • Don’t get me started about the Nurse usage of McCaw….what a nightmare. Lol

                      When Mccaw and Flynn were on the team together we played Flynn and not Mccaw. Not sure if that's due to injury or not but when Nurse had a choice he chose Flynn.
