Why waiving Mike Taylor wasn't a good move

o.k so i understand there are better options out there than mike taylor. i understand and  would prefer fred jones

/ novak over taylor if it came down to that . But , what were the clip missing supposedly last year ; aside from the

ridiculous injury downtimes. it is  chemistry!! chemistry is what  a good portion of the excuses were laid upon , or a combination of a new roster having to learn to play together and this so called chemistry.  i would say strongly

that the injuries were not the biggest problem and in fact , weather your a fan or not,  putting a 85% new roster together and expect them to be able to compete with teams that have all been playing together for years  is nuts.

So fast forward til now.  another major change to the team . i'd say these guys probably wont even feel confident with's swollen telephone book of plays til the allstar break. and y'know what ? i found that the games when

all the big names were hurt , were by far the most exciting to watch. and they actually got some wins with the young lineup.

mike taylor was certainly out of control 75% of the time , but he's young, inexperianced and still learning.

the skill level is there ,but he also possessed an honest exhuberant posative vibe like d.j does. like there

wasnt a negative bone in that kids body . thats what the clips could benefit from seeing more of .

instead of sulking whining pros . if i could choose taylor vs . telfair for a roster spot(purely hypothetical)

i choose taylor .  and everyone watch as this kid takes some dark days  and turns them into sunny ones as he starts to protect the ball better . someone going that fast that can be in control and dunk ; well that's as good as it gets.

anyway , another group of players having to learn that bloated playbook from the early nineties.

another bunch guys who have to form this chemistry.   if i was a gambling man , id say another ruff year ahead with little sparkles of hope occasionaly . hell i say bring cassell back as assitant coach. . he was the only one that was shouting at everyone and getting them going . clips aint had no swagger since.
