Who is ne?
He's Nene's half brother.
oh man, I'm wiping my flat screen.
From dreams of Melo to dreams of Wilson Chandler?
You are a Bad Person
Don't worry, KG has a plan to get both. It's like getting the coffee cup and the little plate it sits on. Sent from the new and improved Tapatalk 2.
Signing Wilson Chandler gives us a better shot at winning a NBA title.
I wish I'd have thought of that one..........
Yeah, that was Hilario!
If we're keeping Monroe.......yes!
How do you figure...Monroe has only ACTUALLY BEEN our best player since he got here and he is probably the single most efficient scorer we have. If anyone on this team should be getting paid a high salary, it's Monroe. The thing that baffles me is how he's the first guy mentioned in trade talks.
If it ain't rough,...
He's not an efficient scorer, he's a volume scorer. NBA Stats NBA Stats NBA Stats
He looks more efficient this year- NBA Stats
Iverson was a volume scorer. Monroe is not. Then lion's share of his shots (read: almost ALL) are right at the rim. ...and he's incredibly efficient. 2010-11 - 487 shots from that spot (not even 20 shots from anywhere else) = 59% FG 2011-12 - 648 shots from that spot (not more than 45 from anywhere else) = 55% FG 2012-13 - 842 shots from that spot (not more than 47 from anywhere else) = 53% FG <-- this is +200 attempts (roughly) and only a 2% drop in shots made. That's less than a handful of shots IN TRAFFIC. NO ONE else on this team is even close to that kind of shooting with the exception of Drummond and this is only his 2nd year and we don't give him the ball because he WOULDN'T have these kind numbers if we posted him up and let him go to work on the block.
Monroe shoots a relatively poor % from up close, but he gets a TON of shots from those spots, a lot more than most people. So it helps our overall shooting %.
Hi...my comment was pointed at the 7-8 million left...JD would probably just give to Stuckey. I wasn't making a value judgment on Monroe. I'll judge him when he plays a season with real players.
Monroe is a guy who gets his. He's not going to make a key defensive play. He's not going to crash the defensive boards hard. A guy like him is good, but I am not sure he'd be an automatic lock on some of the better teams in the league.
Monroe has the same eFG as Will Bynum this year (both very good). We have 4 guys with PERs over 19.4, which is pretty ridiculous. Too bad it's not resulting in W's. Drummond 21.8 Monroe 21.1 Jennings 20.5 Bynum 19.5 The only other team in the league that can say that is Portland.
Do we trade Monroe? Do we let him walk? Or do we re-sign him? The only way we can be players in this summers free agent market is let Stuckey and Moose walk. But if they walk, is this summers free agent class good enough to help our team minus Moose and "Good" Stuckey?
