Each coach does whatever he thinks best to get his team ready. Some guys will play their starters more especially if they're implementng a new system and want to get their starters time under fire.

Lots of coaches don't play the 1s at all in the 4th game.

With the change in traning camp and the loss of OTAs, coaches are expected to approach the preseason games differently this year.

IIRC, it's more like:

1st 2 series
1st quarter and sometimes slightly into the 2nd
half
none at all

See, when Iverson was going off about practice, this is the kind of thing I was thinking about.

Iverson knows how to play basketball, why does he need to practice.

The short answer is that it's not about him, it's about the team.

Think about it.

Yeah, but the team can't come together and learn to work as a unit without him there. If you let the star just go off and pull his pud while the team is practicing and getting to where they know where each other is going to be and where they like to get the pass and whatnot, when the star comes back, it's just going to ruin the chemistry. The team could well end up better without him on the court.

To be as good as they can be -- as a team -- the whole team needs to be out there practicing. It's not about improving one guys individual skills.

But that's not really the case here. Matt's been practicing with the team. Everything's fine. So why make him go out for these one or two series?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you got some bad info. Kubes was saying that we are gonna go with our usual preseason routine just yesterday. He was asked about Leinart and he said that these next two weeks are the biggest time for his season or something like that. Maybe someone just took that and ran with it.

Schaub died or something? I'd like to see him play a series or two.

As long as he gets out there at some point.. preseason game #2... #3....

This is just practice, he's the leader of the team.. he should be out there.

Yeah. I haven't heard this anywhere except here.

That would seem kind of strange for them to not play schaub with the starters.
