    Love it.

    It’s kind of funny how the media and those calling the game act like he is just this talented bench player. It’s so silly for anyone to pretend he is not one of the 5 best players on the roster.

    I am convinced Steele’s decision not to start him was just an experiment that turned into a brilliant strategy to throw teams off. When Nunge and Free sub in for Miles and Hunter, it’s like Superman and Shazam being sent in to replace Batman and Robin during a fight against the Joker and his henchmen. The opposition won’t even know what hit them.

    Brilliant strategy = lacking practice points
