Price Check

Remember this amazing moment in last year's playoff series with the Lakers.

Where has Ronnie gone? I, for one, don't understand why Brevin Knight is getting all the backup PG minutes and Price has been relegated to the end of the bench, only to emerge in mop-up duty. Price is bigger, more athletic, a better shooter and a better defender. And he has the potential to improve with experience. Knight isn't bad. He doesn't hurt us, but he also does help us. He has trouble with bigger guards and can't shoot. He distributes well but doesn't provide much of a spark because he can't score. Price has the potential to guve us a real lift off the bench and I'd like to see us give him a chance to do so as we make our push to the playoffs.

Plus, maybe we'll get to see more highlights like this dunk over Boozer.
