    Having Ben Gordon on the team depressed me. I'm interested in seeing what Maggette will do. I want to see him push the youth to compete for small forward minutes.

    We have a barn that needs quality stock, but the rats keep running in..........and staying.

    C'mon, that can't be real. (Edit: I clicked on the link and saw a tweet about boxing, LOL.)

    He bummed me out also. I'm upset about the 1 for 1 swap.

    The top comment made me laugh because I was thinking exactly the same while watching the video.

    Terrence Williams was the #11 overall pick just 3 years ago. This guy is an athletic freak. He can rebound, drive, dunk, shoot the jumper, etc. If they can get his head straight, he would be better than most on the current roster. Here is a small taste from one game last year:

    Now I'm really on board with this guy. He's a carry an illegal firearm in a backpack from having the Ben Wallace package.

    He put up decent numbers as a starter his rookie year with the Twolves. Hasn't seen much PT the last 2 seasons, with Twolves, Rockets, Blazers.

    Joe is hoping Flynn is another Billups situation. Could be.

    That would be cool if Lawrence Frank just let all of these guys truly compete for jobs during training camp. If you didn't prepare this past summer and you don't come in hungry, then see ya' later....unless it's one of my favorite players.

    I think T-Will and Flynn would be great additions, dumping Bynum and Daye. I'm not worried if they don't work out.

    I remember watching live through the internet that Syracuse game that went to 4 over times.. Flynn was in it.

    I don't think Flynn can be like Billups.. but I think he is more of a Point Guard than Bynum, and that's what we need.

    This is the kind of roster churning I am talking about. I like getting these random guys for a look.

    I feel like Bynum would be great on any of the older contenders. Celts, Lakers and Spurs could all use him on their old blah nights. All in all I don't really mind him but he's a horrible fit here.

    I really like Flynn over Bynum, that would be great.
