Now, come 4th quarter, Hill can turn his game up a few notches and make some HUGE shots. That being said, he is also capable of just making lazy passes and turning the ball over in key situations as well.
Are we actually discussing benching Hill for Watson right now? Or are we just saying we really like CJ?
I asked people on RealGM why Watson hasn't really stuck with a team. Apparently by the end of the playoffs Nets fans hated him. I can't see why, someone referenced a very poor playoffs, but still.
I (would have) voted for Roy. +31 and five blocks!
I know many of you love Mark Boyle but I have decided I prefer listening to the opposing radio guys' despair. Really fun listening to the Bulls guys crying tonight.
This space for rent.
The disturbing thing about the Bulls hasn't been Rose. It's been Deng and Noah. They are not moving well at all.
Rose at least still plays like he used to. You can attribute his struggles to 18 months of rust. The other two look like they've aged ten years.
It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

People hated him in Brooklyn because he didn't play that well, I don't blame him though that system was s*** last year, I'm glad he sucked or we would have never been able to get him I actually thought he was gone forever.
By "gone" I mean gone from our radar or chance to get him.
FWIW, I think this is a team where "starter" is a loose definition for a few positions. So much luxury with rotations, minutes. Maybe Watson likes a matchup with Watson starting, but Hill exploiting a weaker PG off the bench on the offensive side.
Not saying it's likely/will happen. Just saying, outside of PG24 & Hibbert, minutes can be really variable in this team, and "starter" designation won't always connote what it does with other teams/players.
The Nets had like a 75% attendance rate even when Kidd was taking that team to the Finals. No one ever cared.
Just checking in. What a great win against the Bulls. My favorite thing to do after we defeat the Bulls... read their realgm board. And my-oh-my is it tasty today. I'm not sure there are enough emoticons to display my pleasure and one more
