So let me separate it out for you. I'm making a simple statement regarding only two players. Ian is SIGNIFICANTLY better than Solomon. I conclude that because Solomon cannot even stay in the league, whereas Ian is a vital rotational player on our team playing the same position.
If Ian were at the end of our bench, manning perhaps the 13th to 15th slot on our roster, I might be compelled to extend you a little latitude.
But he's not. Ian is a player who actually is a 6th to 7th player on a team that competes in a professional league called the NBA. The other guy, named Solomon, is pond scum in comparison.
By the way I believe Ian is better than Solo and I believe that Ian belongs in the NBA but not for 4mil a year.
DC warts and all, I would run naked around the circle if he showed up on this team tomorrow to be our backup point guard.
Collison has a knack of making expectations high when he plays for new teams. They were too high here and now they're too high in Dallas. He'll be great as a backup there eventually.
I think DC would have made a pretty good back up PG in Indiana, too bad he didn't want that. He fit this "system" well. Man at this point I'd trade DJ for a Ham Sandwich. Throw in Green for some condiments.
Exactly. Does he have his flaws? Absolutely. Is Hill a better starter? No question. But would DC be an absolute superior backup option to DJ? Hell yes.
DC could at least make plays that would help the Pacers. Plus this would have been his third year playing with these guys. The chemistry would have been even better.
