Agreed.Buncha whiners on this thread. First half sucked but KE gave the bench way too much leash and we saw a bunch of goofy lineups, including saquan, who punted maybe the only three possessions he was allowed to play. Ronnie is winning the PG spot decisively. Tightened up the rotations in the second half and smashed. Never in doubt. Coop's defense pisses me off most of the time but he showed in the second half why you can't keep him off the court. VBJ is the real thing and Josh had some beautiful passes tonight.

Yep, we have blown lots of leads over the years.I'd say my #1 complaint from last season was the lack of depth, and so I'm fine giving coach the leash to let people earn minutes off the bench against a bad team. End of the day the starters did what they needed to do and we got to tune our rotations a little more. Better to be down at the half and win big than be up big at the half and barely squeak by. We've had enough of the latter the last decade or so (when we could bother to win at all).
Me too! I was skeptical coming into this season but Polite has been pretty solid. I thought Josh hesitated a couple of times yesterday when he was played straight up but he did make some nice passes and made buckets when we needed.I’m impressed with Polite. The biggest question mark heading into the season was PG, and right now he is playing well.
Hernandez isn't all that. Kinda like a Peterson. Will be shocked if he makes an appearance at any of our games going forward.I'm a bit surprised that Hernandez isn't putting the ball on the floor. Had the impression from the his HS videos that he would have no problem getting to the hoop, but all of his shots have come from distance. Does seem effective from deep so that's encouraging. And it's still so very early in the season that it's almost not worth even mentioning.
