Considering Jose was willing to trade Jack and a 1st round pick for a 2nd round pick, Jack and a 1st for Troy Murphy ain't too shabby.
Come to the Dark Side -- There's cookies!
Dammit UB. It took me a couple of munitues to realise this thread was a year old. I was so very confused.
I think it is all working out OK. WOuld love to still have the pick, but I think that is being way overrated.
Jackson and a first for Murphy? That would have been okay with me. I wanted the Jackster moved on badly enough to give up that pick.
First I prefer Murphy
hmm one word about undersized power fowards.. Sir Charles.... still he is a little undersized but if I am not mistaken plays taller due to a large wing span. I hope it is years away from him being a starter but he can be a dependable back up to JO..and sometimes play in rotation with JO depending upon match ups.. and eventually reach the level of say a McDyess.
You didn't think it was gonna be that easy, did you? ..... You know, for a second there, yeah, I kinda did.....
Silly rabbit..... Trix are for kids.
Other undersized PF?
Malik Rose, Brand (small hands so lets trade him for this Tyson Chandler guy)
What others? Battier played PF in college but made the transition pretty good (not saying that is what Ike will do)
I find it bizarre that people think Ike cannot be a solid PF. He is listed at the same size as Elton Brand (6'8" 255lbs.), who is a flat out all star.
The big deal with Ike is his wingspan of 7' 3 1/2" and amazing standing reach of over 9'. Here is an interesting link: http://www.draftexpress.com/viewarticle.php?a=1004
Well, if we had origionally traded Artest to Golden State in a simillar deal that included Jackson they could still ride together. In that sense, Donnie did all sports entertainment fans wrong.
"They could turn out to be only innocent mathematicians, I suppose," muttered Woevre's section officer, de Decker.
"'Only.'" Woevre was amused. "Someday you'll explain to me how that's possible. Seeing that, on the face of it, all mathematics leads, doesn't it, sooner or later, to some kind of human suffering."
it's all good at least we got rid of Jack and Runi. I liked Runi but he was indeed a chemistry prob for our team given the coach we have and what he wanted Runi to do. one last piece to move. if we get MelMel out for a real PG that distributes the ball, wont turn it over and can defend, we'll be good.
Yes, Troy Murphy is a very small 6'11" guy. No doubt Ike plays bigger.
But, what about David Harrison and his T-Rex arms? He's huge and can block shots because he can sky, but I bet his wingspan and standing reach are less than Ike's.
There is nothing more overrated in the game of basketball than the height of players. I wish they didn't even list the heights. Wingspan is is a little more important - you have tol you see a player on the court
