I have mixed feelings about Jeremy's 2012 D League debut. It's really tough to see Charles Jenkins starting and then Mike Bibby getting some backup minutes. Have you watched these guys? Have you seen their plus/minus? Jenkins can hit the open midrange and is solid on D, but thats about it. He's not gonna penetrate, rebound, and help defend like JLin. Bibby was nice a few years back but looks like he's at the end of the road. He can occasionally get hot from three and set a good pick but that's about it right now. It would be a lot easier to swallow if JLin was being beaten out by legit backups like a George Hill or a Lou Williams. Well, just gotta stay positive. At some point Dantoni will figure it out. If not and Jeremy gets waived before his contract guarantee date of February 10th, he'll have some opportunities with all of the injuries this season. That makes this supposed short NBDL stint even more important as teams needing a backup point guard will be watching closely. Anyway, at least we all get to enjoy watching him play again.
