Congrats to Dallas and Aminu if he becomes a consistent contributor for them. I really like Mason's takes, but I just don't agree with something like this:
Mason Ginsberg ?@MasonGinsberg
#Pelicans fans saying "Dallas can have Aminu, we won't miss him" - maybe, but don't underestimate his ability to contribute w/ smaller role.
We literally gave that guy NO responsibility offensively. His role couldn't have been more basic and concise...rebound, play defense, get out and run when possible. Thats it. He failed. Over and over.
Outside of playing 5 minutes less and/or his name no longer being listed as a starter in the box score, I don't know how much less you could ask from him.
Plus, it seemed
like his "teaser" games where he flashed intriguing "stuff" came less and less frequently as the talent on the team got better. So I'm not positive that paring down his role even further means you should cut on the same/better production in smaller doses.
Over the last 3 or 4 years we've turned a lot of other teams' trash into treasures. Never once did I look at those guys' success here as a referendum on their former teams' ability to develop players.
