    I keep hearing, "It's not the money, it's the trade I hate so much". Personally I like the contract. It is fair for a servicable, back-up, big man. Seriously, many of the same posters who are mad about the trade also couldn't stand Collison. I was one of those who felt that Collison was a major disappointment, and a complete defensive liability. So, I will reserve my feelings about the trade once the season begins. I like the fact that we made room to sign Gerald Green, and got a quick, solid, temporary replacement in Augustin.

    What was that about vertical leap again? Dude has T-Rex arms. Vertical and athleticism is not a crutch of Tyler's.
    Tyler's running vertical is fine, but his standing vertical stinks, which is why he gets in trouble around the rim.

    He also keeps the ball too low. even if you were the best leaper in the world holding the ball at your groin constantly is going to result in a lot of messed up opportunities.

    jeff foster was like that when he was still a young player. given a running start, he could get up pretty high. but not standing still. maybe it's something in the water in mid-america.

    Well again go back and watch old video of Jeff, he always kept his arms up when the ball was heading towards the rim, that's a natural advantage for rebounding, Jeff was also pretty good at keeping the ball high when he did grab it or receive it. Tyler is really bad at both of these things.

    no argument here. jeff did a lot of things that tyler doesn't. which is too bad.

    i always thought the way jeff jumps as unusual. he jumped so high on the move, mainly in rebounding on the move. but couldn't block a shot worth a dam. tyler kinda jumps the same way.
