I think at this point it’s a combination of the team winning, Jerry Stackhouse’s surge and Marshons lack of consistency. Avery loves (as do I) the contributions he’s getting from Stack and Bogans on both offense and defense and with a four game win streak (against some pretty good competition) I think Avery just isn’t going to fix something that’s not broken. Probably the most concerning thing for Brooks is his defense when he’s on the floor. Last time we saw him on the floor I believe it was against the Lakers where Metta World Piece drove right into him like he was a ghost.
It’s such a long season and I think once Stack cools down (if he cools down), we’ll see Marshon slowly come out of Avery’s doghouse. I think the same can be said for Mirza Teletovic but his situation is more about adjustment. Once these two, however, come back to the rotation, we will be awfully tough and deep.
As good of a scorer as Marshon is he has not taken care of the ball. He is still making rookie mistakes. Now thats he’s a second year player for one game according to the veterans he needs to put on his big boy pants.
