Worthington is a bit of a quiet achiever, never seems to score alot internationally but can rewally shit off the other team and is stronger then he looks. I feel the role that Brett Brown gave him last night is the one hw should polay all olympics... 5-10 minutes, irritate the other teams PF.. then come off once he has got them off there game a bit. Maric simply pissed me off last night, I was glad to see him head to the bench. he doesnt have the same hustle as the rest of the team and he was just a foul magnet.. Id actually put him behind Baynes in the rotation right now. Baynes is more athl;etic, shows more guts, plays harder and accumilates more points then Maric seems to despite the fact that Baynes is prone to the occasional brain fart. Dellavedova, why the hate on dely? nothing runs unless delly runs it... so, i think he should definitely be our starting point guard. I would Start
first subs would be
I find it amazing people were complaining and asking "what does barlow even do???" for weeks, and soon as he doesnt get game time "wheres barlow? why?".... haha well there in lies your answer! he doesnt actually achieve much in a game.. defensively can irritate sure... but generally, doesnt hjit his shots, doesnt pass incredibly well and doesnt do anything that effects the game substantially... His 11th man status is completely understandable. Gibson would be the weakest out of the Guard rotation, not an especially fantastic point guard at this level.. probably gives you more defensively then Patty but without very much of the offensive threat.. hes your 9th man on the team.. probably will feature in all games but very breifly. PC.. theres a reason why hes 12th man, and a reason why hes not going to see alot of court time this olympics, he just doesnt give you alot outside of a three point shot, hes a 'solid' defender, yet som is most of the team.. He should however (in my opinion) be thrust into games if only for a few minutes a game in the ass end of quaters just to give him a feel for it and see if he cnat light up some threes. After all thats what Brett said he brought him in for right? and we need something... anything last night, yet he kept him on the bench.. that has to eb playing on Brett Browns mind. PC saved us against China right when it was looking like we were going to face humiliation wioth 3X3's... he potentially could have done the same against Brazil, i doubt Brazil would have known much about him... and wouldnt have expected a barrage of threes I assume... Maric... Just for his lack of effort alone, is the 10th man in the squad.. he shouldnt play big minutes until he proves hes worthy... He just lumbers around the court... Pick it up maric or go home basicly..
