    Default Josh Powell = Solid

    Give the man solid minutes in the regular rotation.

    Heady, savvy defense.

    Good, well-positioned rebounding.

    Pure shooter.

    Deliberate, confident free throw shooting (important under pressure).

    Decent one-on-one moves.

    Knows where to position himself on the court to get the assist for an easy shot.

    This guy is a keeper.

    He's a beast. Period.

    I believe SIG and Jerm said the same thing about him after Fan Jam.

    Does his situation remind anyone of how Antonio Davis just kind of 'appeared' out of nowhere and started producing? Toughness, nice offensive game, solid defense, etc.

    I'm starting to think more highly of the trade now.

    I just sent someone an email a few minutes ago and in it I made the AD comparison myself.

    I like Powell a lot, the best thing I can say about him is that he plays like a veteran, and yes he does play like Udonis.

    I also think Marshal will make the team, he seems like a very nice player, but the reason why I think he'll make the team is because he's starting all these preseason games and I doubt Rick would start him if they did intend to keep him.

    I want to keep Green, Rawle, and Powell. I really wouldn't have much of a problem getting rid of Jax. All 3 players could be very good contributors to our team in the long run..and by the way it's looking, the short run as well.

    Powell, like this thread says, is just solid. He is as good as Udonis for sure.

    Marshall is both intelligent and an extremely athletic guy. He will be able to get his shot off over other players and I think he will get much better.

    When you add Armstrong, we absolutely raped Dallas in that trade.

    I agree I hated AJ, great trade.

    I can't think of any possible way they can get rid of Powell and Marshall. If they can't make a deal to move Saras or Jack (good luck) they may have to work with Shawne Williams and have him take a D-league tour of duty until a spot opens up. He seems aware that he needs to develop more to contribute.

    Not sure this is the official post game thread, but I want to comment that Tinsley played very well. Jamaal needs to study the tape of this game and do whatever he can to play this type of of game.


    Rick said it is becoming very clear who the better players are.

    Several guys on this board say that a player sent to the D league still counts as one of your 15. Doesn't help the problem.

    So . . . it's Marshall, Powell, Greene or Baston.

    Or a trade.

    I'd have to cut Rawle, even though I like him.

    What about Armstrong?

    Those NC State guys can be quite surprising.

    Hopefully, that's true since I'm not quite sure I know what I'm talking about.

    I will be angry if we don't call all 3 of the youngins, cause then some other team will snatch them right up. Cut one of the Euros if we have to. I haven't seen Baston, but Saras is borderline useless.

    Powell looks good. He might make one of the other bigs expendable.

    He knows how to rebound the ball and is aggressive underneath the net. That's all I've wanted for a long, long time. That's all he could bring to the court each night and I'd be more than happy. But the fact that he brings all the other qualities with him is just icing on the cake. He is turning into one of my favourites.

    A trade is needed to avoid losing Marshall. I cannot believe TPTB will let him walk.
