    Default Fred Jones looking good...

    Anybody see his line tonight?

    We may have kept the wrong shooting guard.

    A) One Game

    B) One Game in Preseason

    C) I have it from a reliable source that Fred was the cancer in the lockerroom, he was always starting fights with Jack, AJ, and Granger about how one of them should be benched so he could start. Makes sense if you take into account we let him go for nothing

    P.S. I have a man-crush for Brian Colangelo.

    Look at his stats b4 tonight. It's been said at least 1000 times, but I'll say it again, it's pre-season.

    Seriously - where are his stats from tonight in the first place? Am I going senile? Honestly - I have no recollection of the Raps playing tonight.

    Fred who?!?!?! you mean Mike Jones? Why we even talkin about Fred Jones. Yea he was fun to watch, but dude argued and complained against refs as much as Jack did and he was never consistent.

    Yeah, I'd rather have kept an inconsistent, short SG who is already 27, over Jack.

    Fred was nice for us, but he didn't want to stay - not a big deal.

    Yeah, he's pretty good.

    When they played the Celtics, he had 14 points, 8 boards, and 7assists.

    Fred always has that string of games when he makes us say WOW Lets start Fred Jones, then he *removed* for 2 months and gets something from his fist to elbow hurt and cant shoot.

    BS. BS. BS. And a big lie.

    This is just flat out not true. State your 'reliable source'. Freddy didn't care about starting...just wanted to play, which he did, so he was OK with that. I don't know how many conversations you had with him about htat, but from the conversations I had, I know this to be true.

    You don't have to argue w/ him. He is who he is, and everyone knows he's not right. You don't need to correct him for anyone to know better.

    I read it, and just laughed. He's funny, when you really think about it.

    You yell at me to state my source and you don't seem to state your source for your opinions.

    Mine is a guy that has interned with the Colts and Pacers during the summers. He is a sports marketing and management major I think. I work with him.

    It makes sense if you think about it. Why did we let Fred go for NOTHING. Why did fred choose to use that abandonement to go to a completely crappy team, IE a team he would have a better chance of getting either a starters role or a sixth man role.

    Does it matter? Freddie is a classic "big numbers on a crappy team" guy. There is no way Freddie is a starter on a playoff team. It's that simple. He couldn't accept that.

    Freddie always struck me as an exceedingly nice guy.

    I'm sure he'll do very well in toronto. He just needed a place where he could win a full-time starting job, much like Mike James last year.

    #1. Because Al Harrington >>> Fred Jones, and money is/was tight.

    #2. Jones went to the Raptors because the Pacers initially signed the sheet to match any offer, and then rescinded it. They greatly reduced his number of suitors. He said it, his agent said it.

    Anyway, Toronto was probably the best place for Jones to play. He'll get a lot of minutes there. On his great night, by the way, he shot 2-for-10 including 0-for-5 from beyond the arc.

    Good luck to him, but I don't think he'll be missed on the court.

    There, fixed.

    It made no sense to NOT make him the qualifying $2 million offer, but when the raptors offered him about $4 million per year, which would have been doubled under the luxury tax, it made little sense to shell out $8 million a season for him.
