I liked Nolan's minutes as well. He seemed very comfortable and I didn't notice any of the typical "rookie mistakes." It will be interesting to see if Nate keeps giving him some minutes.
I wouldn't go as far as let Nolan start and Felton be a back up. Can you imagine what that will do to Felton with only 14 games into the season? I agree that Nolan needs to play more minutes and be allowed to make the rookie mistakes.
Hi BBF. I wasn't suggesting that Nolan start right now, but by the last month of the season he'll still be young and sharp. By then the competition for starter should be intense. Every night we face younger, faster, smarter guards who can finish at the rim. Our only real hope for that person is Nolan. We must remember that he did play 4 years for Duke, unlike some of our recent acquisitions. Just give him a chance, that's all I ask. Same with Nic and same with Elliot. Just a chance.
