It is kind of funny that we got Stuckey for the minimum and Orlando paid Ben Gordon $4.5 million.
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
You know what makes me cope? The fact that I don't have to watch Lance mope around on offense and defense for reasons only known to him!
That crap is contagious in that your team isn't going to play like a team when one guy is acting like that. I went to every game, this is something that wasn't always noticeable on TV but after All Star break this crap would happen every game. Dude would just stand around mope, pout, hanging his arms and stand around then call for the ball or decide to get in a defensive stance when his man got the ball.
Is Lance a good team player? If you answer that honestly there's nothing else to discuss.

Quoted T Birds idea in another thread, but babysitting Lance can wear on players and coaches.
That's going to be a good expiring contract next year (or this year, since its a team option) for a team that needs to hit the salary floor. If they rehab that player they can easily grab a bad MLE signing and an asset if Gordon regains his shooting form.
I think that contract was fine.
Start Watson, Miles, George, West, Hibbert and bring Stuckey, G Hill, Rudez, Copeland, Mahinmi off the bench. GG.
If anyone is listening to Grady and Big Joe right now, Vince Ellis from the Detroit Free Press is on talking about Stuckey.
A few points from the IV:
**Stuckey was immature and insubordinate his first few years, but he's been on good behavior the last 3 years or so.
**Thinks Stuckey is a steal at the vet minimum.
**Thinks he'd be good as the 5th starter or the 6th man.
**Not a guy to run the team, but knows his game and sticks to his strengths: gets to the rim and gets to the FT line (which we knew). Doesn't try and do too much, just sticks to what he does well.
**When engaged he is a solid defender.
**Self Aware. Is honest about his issues, and speaks his mind - which has gotten him in trouble in the past. Should do better in a change of scenery.
I'm not convinced of this. I don't recall Lance shoving another player aside for a bench seat at anytime in the last three years (when Lance actually sat on the bench, of course).
**** Evan Turner, **** the horse he rode in on, and good ****ing riddance.
