    the problem hill has with the suns is he can't hit the 3. that's a big part of their game. he continues to chuck em up, but he's never been able to nail them on a consistent enough basis. he still has game in other areas though which is probably a blessing to the suns. but i can't help but think sometime down the road in the playoffs he is going to be called on to be able to hit that open 3, and he won't be able to do it.

    Hill at New York :-

    36 min, 13-17 for 28 pts, 8 rebounds, 7 asst and 3 steals. This guy can still play at All Star level. FG% at almost 49% this season so far.

    How come we don't hear anything this year about Mike "Bulldog" James. Last year he was the talk of the town. This year he ain't gettin' any love?

    Hard for him to get a rebound from the bench. Doesn't quite have that kind of reach.

    In spite of games like that, the Spurs let him go.

    I'm really happy that Nazr is playing great right now. That means other teams will be open to trading for our players since they tend to thrive when they go to new teams (at least for awhile). That being said, Nazr is servicable but I think he's a big stiff. He's got bad handles and unless you put the ball right in his sweet spot he always seems to fumble the pass. He's pretty slow and doesn't have that hard nosed attitude that demands respect in the paint. He's a veteran and a good guy so I hope he does really well in Charlotte and I'm just tickled we're not paying his salary anymore.

    Here is an interesting stat.

    Rebounds per 48 minutes.

    The leader right now is Marcus Camby at 20 per 48 minutes

    Of those that qualify McDyess is our leader at 12.6, which makes him #38 in the league. AJ right now is at 14.4 rebounds per 48 minutes which if he had enough minutes would put him at his age or the 20th best in the league.

    Why is this post in the Ex Pistons thread, because Nazmo is 18th in the league at 14.6 rebounds per 48 minutes.

    This puts Nazmo and AJ ahead of KG, Yao Ming, Shawn Marion, Big Ben, Shaq, A. Stoudemire among others in rebounds per 48 minutes.

    Nazr wasn't going to get the minutes playing for the Pistons. Generally, he just wasn't a good fit here. Even with that, it is just strange that he is capable of putting up those numbers, but unable to do so on the Pistons team. Lets see if he can maintain those numbers.

    He was rebounding for us. That was his only strong suit. He looked like a stiff, but he was a big body and went nosefirst into crowds for boards (like Jeff Foster). Are we missing his rebounding so far? Not really. However, it seems to be working out for Charlotte. This could have been one of those rare win/win trades.

    Well, all of the excitement seems to be winding down. Delfino is cooling off, Ben clearly struggling, and Mohammed, well, he's just what he is - after a splash back to mediocrity.

    Damon Jones wants out of Cleveland and Chucky Atkins scored 13 points his first game back from injury with Nuggets but quiet since.


    How's Mo Evans doing these days in Orlando? Is he still wearing his arm and leg tights?

    Herrmann would also probably be more comfortable playing some place else.

    Brezec is in my opinion a slightly different story, but my guess is that he won't be back either next year.

    PISTONS CORNER: Delfino okay with ex-teammates

    :hoops:
