    At the rate fred is getting promoted he might be VP of basketball operations by april
    When FVV takes over Casey's job, even he won't be playing himself so much, so at least there's that.

      It's funny how it's so clear Fred shouldn't be closing close games and stats prove that but Casey will ride with him until the end. It happens every year with at least one player no matter how much it doesn't work. I'm not even going to waste my time hoping Dwane stops closing with Fred. He's going to close with him until we lose a couple games in the playoffs. Just watch.
      He does seem to get one early season rotation idea in his head that he just hangs onto for too long (Scola, Siakam, FVV). Sometimes he does adjust those by midseason, so here's to hoping.

        It's a very easy answer. Don't play FVV in the clutch. Problem solved! Basically every permutation works if you take him out of the lineup.
        Did Freddy do something to you in a past life ... ?

        Freddy has his warts but along with those warts.....he is mentally tough, doesn't fluster, has a good bball IQ and is consistent in what he brings every night. Coaches love that.

        FWIW.. I'd like to see Norm step up and take those minutes from Fred but Norm hasn't done that. Until he finds his game.... your nemesis is going to make regular appearances down the stretch.

          Delon starting would end up leaving Fred to spearhead the bench unit by himself. That sounds scarier to me
          But the bench unit spearheaded by FFV was competent when Delon was out earlier in the year (but is unquestionably better with Wright). They'll be fine playing against other bench units. Powell's best stretch of the season was when he returned and was playing off the bench alongside FVV while Wright was still out, then his game kinda disappeared once he got pushed to third ball-handler on the bench unit. Might be a good opportunity for him to find his game again as well.

          • Not arguing for Fred in the clutch, but those clutch stats that "prove" it doesn't work, prove little.They do show it hasn't worked well,

            Posted the other day the best clutch team in the NBA are the Sacramento Kings. Do those stats "prove" they're clutch? Will they be clutch the rest of the year? Or is is there a ton of randomness/ noise/small sample there?
            If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

              The Kings suck on paper so them being a "clutch" team statistically will rightfully draw skepticism.

              FVV closing with the starters sucks on paper AND it sucks statistically compared to our other options so no, he doesn't get the benefit of the doubt here.
