Thread: Until we get a point guard, it aint happenin !

  1. #1

    Until we get a point guard, it aint happenin !

    We cant win when defensive #1's are able to jump the point guard w/out fear, at half court: OR, until we get a point guard that doesnt immediately turn his back to the goal when pressured: OR until we get a point guard that can/will start the offense with more than 10 seconds left on the shot clock: OR a point guard that can GUARD another point guard: or a point guard that can attack with both hands: OR, a point guard that can see the entire court while dribbling !
    Spacing is impossible when your offense is stagnant for 14 seconds on every possession .
    Gordon will be able to camouflage Vasquez a little bit,but until we find a legit starting #1, Anderson, Gordon & Davis will be handcuffed a bit !

    I really wanted Vasquez to come in and play better than expected but he hasn't really. Gravy can be a great guard off the bench and a lockeroom leader, but not a starter on a decent team.

    I never thought I would hear that lol. Yeah I was all on the Gravy bandwagon as a starter, but he starting to look more and more like a great backup PG. Again, it may be to soon to say this but I really would like to see how a Rivers/Gordon backcourt will look.

    Finally admitting you were wrong?

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    I'm an advocate of getting a PG through trade or FA (versus the draft).... I think Jeff Teague might fit in here nicely and I am also thinking he will probably be attainable....

    Lillard is playing out of this world, if we would have somehow got him and AD?! Mannn that would of been something. Also still wish we had collison that trade for him was garbage

    Collison done fell off a good bit. How do you lose your starting job to 50 year old Derek Fisher?

    I would say, with out a shadow of doubt, that Rivers (in 2 years) will be much better than Lillard is this year. Keep in mind that Lillard came out as a Senior, while Rivers came out as a Freshman. Patience.

    Ummm much better? Lillard averages like 20 and 7. I hope you're right, but i don't see Rivers ever averaging that. 14-16 and 6-8 or so, maybe in his prime.

    they could actually be a team with some interest in a package like Aminu & J. Smith. their SF play isn't superb and they love athletic wings... they also have a log jam at PG.

    I'd honestly take him, lou or Harris, obviously Harris being last but probably pretty easy to obtain at this point

    In terms of efficiency, running an offense, and defensive prowess, I would surely hope so.

    Lillard puts up raw stats (he's really averaging 19 and 6, by the way), but he can't run an offense, his defense is terrible, his passes are offline (never hit where they should hit), and he is currently shooting 37% from the field over his last 10 games. That is horrible! Assists don't mean anything. Half of his assists come from feeding LMA in the post, and that doesn't require any skill on Lillard's part.

    I don't understand why people are so polarized by him.

    On no planet will Rivers ever be better than Lillard. To use your logic, just as Rivers will continue to progress as a player, so shall Lillard. Lillard is the better player. Rivers not being better than Lillard is not a knock on Rivers. Its just fact.

    He was saying that Austin will have a better year when he's 22 in two years than Lillard does this year at age 22.

    Speaking of....


    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ncaab--...035535906.html

    Several NBA front-office officials believed Kabongo could have elevated himself into a mid-first round draft pick as a sophomore. As one Eastern Conference official said, "Maybe even a late lottery pick in what's going to be an average draft."

    But after what most considered an ordinary freshman season and becoming ineligible as a sophomore, Kabongo's chances to getting drafted in the first round are improbable.
    Do we have any 2nd round picks?
