New, comments

Should Andre Roberson be getting regular minutes in the Thunder rotation? Phil Naessens digs in!

On this edition of the Phil Naessens Show, there have been rumblings about Andre Roberson's role with the team. Phil and I break down the play of the young shooting guard and whether he deserves the playing time he receives. Is the team better or worse off because of it?

If you listen to Oklahoma City Thunder fans lately what you’ll hear is a LOT of griping about Scott Brooks starting Andre Roberson.

Oklahoma City Thunder fans don’t like to see Roberson starting and some have even gone as far as to claim that Roberson has been a failure in an Oklahoma City Thunder uniform.

Here is Phil:

On today’s show J.A. Sherman from Welcome to Loud City discuss why Roberson has started at shooting guard for most of the season…..and whether or not he should be starting.

Also on today’s show David Ramil from Hot Hot Hoops and I talk about the Miami Heat’s big win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, Joe Mullinax from Grizzly Bear Blues and I take a closer look at the NBA Western Conference tops seeds, Rush Olson from Rush Olson Creative and Sport and I preview the National League Central division and Kris Willis from Peachtree Hoops and I take a closer look at the top NBA Eastern Conference seeds.
