- Don't hold your breath waiting for another McGuire-Young boxing match. After another lackluster performance from the bench, Eddie is putting the young'uns in the timeout chair.
"The bench has to get better," Jordan said. "Our last two games, I'm not pleased with our intensity, our concentration level, especially from our younger guys. Roger [Mason Jr.] has been pretty solid. Darius [Songaila], we've been waiting for him to get some more lively legs and [yesterday] was a good sign but the rest of our bench, our younger guys, they have to get better. They have to get better."Somewhere, Dan Steinberg is banging his head against something.
After the game, veterans Antonio Daniels, DeShawn Stevenson and Antawn Jamison said they are in the process of re-arranging the locker room. The idea is to separate Andray Blatche and rookies Nick Young and Dominic McGuire to create a more serious pregame environment.
Said Stevenson: "We've got too much joking and playing around going on in here before games."
Empty the Bench recently ranked some of the top shot blockers in the NBA and Unsilent Majority makes a case that Andray Blatche should be ranked higher up.
