    The theory there is that he was supposed to be a better "fit" with our team. He's more of a distributor than a scorer like DC is. But anyone who was a key cog on the worst NBA team of all time is not someone I'm inclined to count on.

    Hill is looking good for us, and DC didn't want to come off the bench....but I'm starting to think maybe we should have just dealt with his attitude bout coming off the bench for the season.
    We should have just forced him to live with it because there isn't much he could have done about it. Plus he would have been a huge cog for us anyway with Granger out. We could really use his scoring. I have a hard time believing that an extremely mediocre big man is the best player we could get for him. DC is a young PG who has shown a lot of potential. I think we could have gotten a better package if we really felt we had to trade him.

    I'd be fine with it if Augistin and DC were close, but they aren't even in the same league right now.

    In his two seasons here he never looked as good as he has for Dal. Never even close.

    But I agree, we couldve done better

    But we don't use our PGs to distribute... so what does it matter how well he passes? He's going to pass to the PF at the top of the key every time down regardless.

    @AlexKennedyNBA: Jamal Crawford hasn't started a game, but he's fourth in scoring with 24 PPG. He trails only James Harden, Carmelo Anthony and Kobe Bryant.


    I remember when he was on the Pacers radar and instead they got Green.

    I think I asked back on twitter when we made the moves....are we sure DJ Augustin is actually better than Darren Collison? Guess we know the answer now.

    Now, now, were we going to get Chris Paul too?

    DJ is supposed to be better at running an offense, and worse at defense and scoring.

    Our offense doesn't involve the PG running the offense. So you'd think defense and scoring would be the priority for us....

    I'm gonna reach back in time and say that a Player that I miss that we ( indirectly ) got rid of ( by not matching his RFA offer ) is Jarrett Jack. I know...I'm stretching it...I'm just saying that I'd wish that we somehow got Jarrett Jack and REALLY HOPE that the FO goes after him in the 2013-2014 Offseason as our Backup PG / 1st Guard off the bench. He's a vet and a really stable PG...way more than what DJ is ( at least for now ).
    Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Lucky for us DJ is on only a one year contract, and if he doesn't improve we are not chained to anything beyond this season with him.

    Darren had many great games here. He was awesome in the Chicago series against DRose. and he really was crucial in in the Orlando series last year as well. I liked DC, but once again our front office screwed someone over. Here is how I see it ; we brought DC here two years ago to be our starting point guard and he had to contend with OBie's schemes for his first half of the season and then had a decent season. We rewarded his pretty good season with getting more competition at his spot. I didn't watch that Chicago series that year saying man we sure need another small guard. In the shortened season Darren had a good season we improved our record drastically. After DC went down with that injury, we had a really light schedule we played Toronto we played Minny, Cleveland and all of them were missing starters, and we had to grind almost all of them. George became the starter, and everyone inexplicably forgot that Darren had started almost every game during the season. So now what I see is a continuation of guys struggling to play together that don't have the same chemistry they had with DC, especially Roy and David. As for the bench we replaced a bunch of 30-year-old journeyman vets with a 25 year old D league all-star, the 24 year old floor leader on the worst team in NBA history, and a 26 year old 6-11 French croissant.
    Not to mention several other young guys. We need some vets if we plan on winning you don't win in this league without vets.......and Michael Petrus ain't going to cut it. You need somebody that's going to come in and yell at these guys will we lose our yell at them when they make mistakes we need Kenyan mart guys been to two finals in the playoffs many times you can see the intensity that the clippers at when they had him last year. And enough rambling.



    Why do you think Carlisle wanted him. Our problem is our front office always wants an passing point guard

    The funny thing is, he doesn't even have NBA size. Certainly not even close for a Center.
    He was like 0-25 before he hit his first shot.

    That was a absolute blunder on Bird's part. I've said it for 3 years now.

    2 years later Bird trades for Hill a combo guard to play PG. Just SMH.

    They replaced a former 6th man of the year in Barbosa, a guy that was considered one of the best defenders in the NBA in DJ, one of the best backup point guards in the league in DC and a pretty decent and cheap PF/C in Lou, in reality that group was not as bad as many believe and yes they sucked against Lebron and Dwade, let me know what bench doesn't.
    Not so much overreacting as over exaggerating. How long ago was it that Barbosa won 6th man & DJ one of the best defenders in the NBA? WOW

    Just make up for it by getting him in the offseason. IMHO...He could be had probably for $4 mil+ and would be guaranteed the same role ( if not more ) that he has in Golden State.
