Was Jack or Landry the 2 year deal?
He's basically a starter on the Warriors right? I'm pretty sure he closes games and has starter minutes.
Mmm, not really. His role is a little less fully defined than that, but he generally tends to close games, yes. His playing time fluctuates a bit, although you can generally depend on seeing him get 16-18 minutes, on average.
He was magnificent in the Friday night home game vs. San Antonio, though. He took charge and he must have played quite a bit longer than usual, especially beginning in the second half through overtime (don't have the numbers right now). While he's still a bench player, I think it was his performance coupled to David Lee's that established that they are both truly the two leaders of the team right now
, though Steph Curry remains the apparent franchise player for the future.
Jack was superb in the first two months of the season, then in January started to struggle some with some nagging injury issues and whatnot, but he's come back strong and I too would vote for him as the 6th Man of the Year, though I readily admit to being biased.
