    Do you think he's improved more than Amir?

    Honestly, I do not know any of these guys personally, nor should I pretend to. All I can judge them by is the limited amount of activity I can observe.

    Amir has one of two problems. He is either really dumb, or he is really immature. I prefer to believe it is the latter.

    Please note, the 3 minutes Amir was in, so was Herrmann. And Amir was playing center, something that has never worked out all season. (To be clear, our front line was Herrmann, JMAX, Amir.)

    But Herrm-dog was a +4 meaning they scored 4 more points than LA while he was on the floor. That's a 12 point swing from AJ.

    I always tap my hat to persons like this. They earn their live hand to mouth.

    This is why we liked Ben so much. He had to come by his success honestly, without any hype. Just like all of us. :)

    And people wonder why teams with Camby and Kaman aren't very good teams.

    Bynum call ball I remember watching him when he played hs ball in chicago. On fox sports they had this show called Chicago Preps, which basically was like a documentary on hs bball stars in chicago. Eddy Curry, Bynum, Luther Head, a couple other college stars were all on the show. He started at Arizona and then transferred to G.tech..he was on their final four team a couple years back. He's always been crazy athletic.

    After college although he wasn't drafted he was still living the life. The last few years he's been making millions playing ball over in the EuroLeague, which is the best pro league besides the Nba (same one josh childress plays in). All he has to do is work on his jumper and he has the potential to be a great point guard in the league.

    Time to move Stuckey to the 2 and to end the JMax and Amir love affair.

    There is something not right with Amir. I think everyone knows it but like him so they don't say. I think he is intellectually challenged. I think he frustrated Flip and our current coach who is also intellectually challenged.

    I loved Ben. I loved Wallace X 2. I loved the crazy defense.

    Have to admit I never paid much attention to Bynum, kind of thought of him as roster filler, until the Boston game when he picked Starbury twice. Since then, he's starting to become one of my favorite Pistons (behind Wally).

    I feel the same way. When someone *cough* Darko *cough* with that much natural talent can't get on the court, there is something wrong. Amir commits redunkulous fouls, and he can't reboard at all. After 3 years in the freaking NBA, a player should be able to handle those two things.

    Hopefully for Mr. Johnson, he is just immature and he can grow out of it. I think Mr. Milicic suffers from both problems.
