RE: More proof the Sixers are a bad organization with a bad owner who makes bad decisions
As an avid sixers fan, I do love TJ. The guy hustles his a$$ off and does everything he can to get a W for his team. My only defense of Brett Brown and his ridiculous accent (his interviews are brutal) is he obviously has an idea in his head of how he wants their system to work.
TJ and Bellinelli are completely different players. One runs a true point, can dart to the basket, plays good defense, and for the most part is a poor shooter (last 10 games = 38% from the field). The other is a perimeter guy who will help you spread the floor and make 3s (although looking at his shooting percentage, he isn't all that great). This does makes sense since whenever Ben Simmons is on the floor you have someone who can drive the lane out there and need as many guys on the wing as possible.
The only other real defense of Bellinelli is size. The guy has 3 inches and definite wingspan to hang with some of these freak NBA players, whereas TJ is more of a bump and grind defender but you can shoot over him.
..... even after all of this I still love TJ and think he is a great energy guy off the bench. Hopefully Brown can figure it out.
