  1. 2012, The BEGINNING not the end. I like that we can reload and alternate at will with all this young players, they will learn to accept their roles and know what is expected of them in time, as for Manu he’s still unreplaceable.

  2. Cory has a lot to improve and playing in the NBA will be the key for him to level up his game we will see how he plays out in the coming games when Pop gives him some playing time.

  3. I’m sorry to say, but I’m not sold yet on Cory Joseph he has a lot of catching up and learning to do before becoming a solid backup behind Parker.
