What the hell is going on?! I almost feel bad for Sims. Is Foster's injury that serious?

This makes me nervous about Jeff. I really hope he's not going to miss any more games.

I don't feel all too bad for Courtney Simms. He probably still gets a nice chunk of change when he gets signed for the short term to replace injuries. What's the pressure of being "eye candy" on the end of the bench?

Honestly? Gill would be an upgrade at backup PG.

I think Gill would be helpful if Tinsley went down.

He's not my first choice, but he's better than Diener and Owens.

(Quis isn't reliable health-wise, although he's a better option than Diener and Owens.)

Is this a joke? I mean, I loved Eddie as a person when he was here, great guy. As a point guard though, do you honestly think he's better then Diener and Owens, because I would rather have Siggy back then Eddie Gill again.

Given the pressing need to figure out a way to reduce the minutes of Tinsley....I am guessing that this is the reason why we resigned Sims:

I am guessing that Harrison and Foster is going to be out for a period of time....on and off....which does make me concerned as well.

Worse then this is that maybe TPTB think that we don't need a backup PG and that an on-and-off Marquis will do :banghead:.

Does resigning Sims mean we can't acquire another PG?

No... not really. Even Diener is better than Eddie Gill.

I can tell you never saw Eddie start for NJ when Kidd was out. He's three kinds of terrible.

He managed to register 4 points and 6 fouls in 24 minutes as a starter. I actually saw some of that game and another game in which he really stunk.

Listen, Eddie...we need to talk.

You're a great guy. I really like you. And we've had a really good time together.

But I just think that right now, it would be better if we were just friends. I think we're just looking for different things.

Really, it's not you...it's me.

Keep in touch?

"Resign" means you quit.

If you sign somebody again you "re-sign" them.

Get it right! :whip:

Personally, I'm already resigned to the fact that now that we've re-signed Sims, he's going to resign.

Naw, he'll just get fired.

I mean, "transition to a new role that allows him to spend more time with his family."

He looked pretty bad tonight.

right now? yes, because our roster is at the 15 limit

we can always cut someone else though (graham or owens) to bring in a new pg. i wonder about owens especially - if he's not good enough to back up tins who's going 40 min per night, shouldn't we replace him with someone who is?

same goes for diener too but cutting his 3 year guaranteed contract is harder to swallow. i'm not sure but owens only has a partial guarantee, i think.

we'd cut graham before diener.

comes down to money.

Diener might prove us wrong as Rush did one of these days and Bird will strut around like Mick Jagger saying "Told ya so".
