John Hollinger says “I don’t understand why they don’t just give Noah the job already. He’s been far better than Wallace.” Since I went on record as a proponent of the Wallace signing at the time it happened, I was vaguely hoping to find some evidence to debunk the idea that Noah’s been far better, but as you’ll see below the evidence is hard to find:
Given the age difference, the case for giving Noah the lion’s share of the minutes seems to get even more compelling. The experience will probably help him improve whereas the extra wear-and-tear can only hurt Wallace. Meanwhile, bad signing. Noah, however, is making all us veterans of Manhattan private school basketball programs proud.
