I'm not saying Delfino will be a star, but will he be more than capable of spelling Prince. I think he's as NBA-ready as any rookie this season. Much like Manu, I think he will make his mark as a rookie, but as a 7th man.
Yeah, I see what your saying, but I saw alot more from Manu in the WC's before his rookie year, than I've seen from Delfino in these Olympics so far. I'm afraid you're setting yourself up for disappointment if you expect too much from him too early.
That's true. I don't expect Delfino to play as well as Ginobili did his rookie season. Ginobili was 25 when he entered the league, but Delfino will only be 22.
I've followed the reports on Delfino (never seen a game he has played) but the thing I like most about him is that he is the exact opposite of Prince. Prince's worst quality is his timidness in the offense. One thing that is unquestioned (by all accounts so far anyway) is that Delfino is bold in attacking the other team's basket. This is much needed for those long scoreless spells the Pistons fell into and were often criticized for last year (and ESPECIALLY the year before that). If Delfino is a compitant scorer with that aggressiveness I will be happy.
Given Kstat's rant at Delfino on the other board, I thought this was worth a .
Given the amount of slavering Kstat did in this thread and this one, I was expecting Dupree to have a bigger game.
Just for fun, every time you're discussing the Pistons' bench, you need to say Carlos Delfino in the Stephen A. Smith voice he uses for "Rasho Nesterovic" and "Slava Medvedenko". Makes it much more interesting.
Help me here. You raved about his defense at the 2 and the 3. Why is it "beyond idiotic" to play him against our starting 2/3?
I'd love to allow you to blame world hunger on your assistant coach, but I'm not sure it's going to fly.
God, I WISH he was the assistant coach.
I rave about delfino's scoring punch. If I ever called him a great man-to-man defender, point it out, and i'll admit I was wrong. Carlos loves to play passing lanes, but he isnt a lockdown defender by any means.
It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

Oh, and I guess the "S.S. Shaq" has somehow just managed to keep that thin team afloat. Wouldn't you love to be a fly on the wall in Jerry Buss' office when the Heat win the championship after the Lakers fail to even qualify for the playoffs? Whew.
