ooh dra cool name
Funny you say that because I was thinking of putting a tin foil hat on her while I posted that.
Kind of knew SVG would pick this guy up the moment I saw he hit the waiver wire. Experienced vet, no real sign he is slowing down that bad in his old age (34 I think). Yeah, McCallum would have given us a better scorer, especially at the rim. But you do need at least 2 actual point guards on the team. At least we have that now. Personally, I would have looked for a young prospect getting cut by another team, looking to improve the roster down the road rather than sign the vet like this, but for now, I am just going to root for Beno and hope he works out well for the team.
Portland - Utah Cheering for Portland this season, in my lower tier favorites, and I am following Utah this season. Portland managed the win, despite a bunch of 2nd half fireworks from Joe Johnson, who got something like 24 2nd half points, mostly 3rd quarter where Utah pulled ahead some. Utah was without Favors, and I did not catch an update on when he will play again, and Hayward is out for a bit with a broken finger on his off hand. But they looked good without these two with Hood and Hill matching the Lillard - McCullum duo thru much of the game. Until Lillard took over in the 4th, ending up with 39. Lillard uses a brilliand mix of drives in and 3's. Oops, posted on wrong thread, could someone move it? Crabbe scored 10 or 12 in the first half to get a double digit lead for Portland in the 2nd quarter. Crabbe, fresh off signing a 75 mil. contract for 4 years, to come off the bench. Utah might have won if they had Favors, or just if his replacement, the other Frenchman on the team, did not go like 1 - 10. Ed Davis was as usual fierce on the boards for Portland. The new guy from Boston, Evans, very bad shooting night in his first game for his new team. Of note, Exum scored his first bucket in two seasons putting back his own miss.
We needed another foreigner.
His best years seem to have been 6 or 7 years ago with the Kings. He hasn't seen real minutes since then. His season-ending injury last season probably didn't help his already mediocre ability to defend point guards. On the plus side, he is supposed to be able to run pick-and-roll and get a team into an offense efficiently. We will find out more tonight.
It's pronounced "Eh-noh". The "B" is silent.
If coach was actually trying to win, he would playing guys with real potential like Old Man Blake instead of beNO...
He had one of his best years on shooting percentage just 2 seasons ago. I am not endorsing this signing, as again, I would have gone with a young prospect, looking for long term benefits vs. a quick fix. But the guy has not shown yet that he is done with his career.
