Math? Picking a game over a month of games is a huge difference. Second I said the season was his body of work.

And then you point to his April, which was the only decent month he had, and which made his overall numbers for the season look merely poor, rather than horrible.

No that was the best month he had and the point of bringing that up was pointing out none of our backup guards rivaled that month. Again, he played minutes against quality competition all season. Show me where that happened with any of our back up guards.

Your counter was bringing up one game.

After seeing a few videos. The kid can do things Jevon just couldn't. He's a decent playmaker and has quick Galloway like shot. He's good at getting open for a quick 3.
Will surely help if Cam Payne gets a bag elsewhere.

You just described Langston Galloway...

He can shoot the 3? Yeah, sure that's Langston Galloway. He literally gave one specific thing and you come back with Langston Galloway. What about the other 350 players in the NBA that also fit that description?

Remember that Galloway played in the NBA before this season, and he did put up good numbers on crappy Detroit teams, so if you look past last season and compare Shamet and Galloway they might be more similar production-wise. However I think we need the extra size and defense, so I'm thinking Shamet will give us more than Galloway will. I'd be okay having Galloway on the bench again. Got the impression he is a quality guy that plays his role whatever coach asks of him. Off course, you can't teach size, but he's no Allen Iverson either.

I really liked both Shamet and Carter when they were drafted. They were two players I wanted badly. It's odd to see the Suns trade one for the other. Shamet plays great D but not that bulldog annoying D that Carter plays. Shamet is longer than Carter though, so his defense is effective. Shamet has a very sweet stroke. Booker level sweet. His range extends well beyond the three-point line. He also is a good ball-handler and distributor. Better than Carter in both.

The thing about Shamet is that he has the ability to create his own shot off the dribble and he is fairly efficient doing it. He is not nearly as good as Book of course, but its a similar type of game. That is a valuable asset playing with the second team.

Shamet is one of the worst defensive players in the league which is why he’s always been a net negative. He became unplayable in the playoffs because he couldn’t defend and was benched vs Milwaukee in game 7. Dude is straight cheeks but hopefully he can get hot in limited minutes. If he’s playing with Payne we are going to have major issues.

He wasn't benched in any of the other games. If he's as bad as you say, why did he have 17 minutes per game throughout the playoffs?

Look at the minutes their starters played, it was a huge elimination game and they road their starters for 50+ minutes. Harden and Durant played all 53 minutes, Bruce Brown played 52, and Joe Harris played 47 minutes. Shamet still saw spot minutes though spelling Harris for 7 minutes.

You are cherry picking and using a ridiculous example to justify your view.

Nah. I have watched Shamet a lot. Not sure where you are getting your opinion.

You just called me ridiculous then said his minutes were cut because the game was too important. Bravo.

They used him almost 20 minutes on average through the playoffs. In tight games he is not the only coach to shorten the bench. It's an exaggeration to say he sat on the bench and they didn't use him.
