That's my point. A really good defender would get tourched. His last year had.more than a few.times.

So If it can happen to one of the.best I'm not gonna freak over it happening to gravy

You are really underrating JJ. I know lots of people hated his style of play, but he's definitely in the same tier as Vasquez, every bit as productive and every bit the leader. The main difference would be Vasquez is still on a rookie deal for one more year, but after that I'd expect them to be in similar salary ranges. But I agree that there aren't many available SFs worth moving Vasquez for.


I just think Jack is extremely inefficient at running the point. He over dribbles and doesn't create much for others. I just think lateral moves are often negative as a whole because of chemistry.

He is a good backup point guard. 6th man worthy.

Hasn't JR Smith proved to be more than just a backup? Hasn't Ryan Andersen? There is no shame in being the 6th man.

re: Is Vasquez our PG for years to come?
As far as trading Gravy, I'm not totally opposed, but the trade would have to improve the team A LOT. The guy is slow and not particularly athletic but he's a terrific player. Seriously, in spite of his limitations, who the hell do we bring in at PG? Really. Assuming everyone stays healthy (realizing there will be the occasional injury and a couple of games missed here and there), the 3 and 4/5 are where we need to focus on obtaining an elite or borderline elite player.

He's the 3rd best player on the number 2 seed. I see there are still a lot of butt hurt fans from when he use to play here.

And yet, he's still an a-hole and can lose a game with his assholiness.

I don't have any doubt about his talent, btw.

I'm not talking about his hard headedness (he drove Karl nuts). I'm talking about his ability to be a starter. Barkley and a few of the Inside the NBA guys felt he was robbed of an All-Star spot.

Trade one of our best players? Yeah, that makes sense

Sounds like some of you just are turned off by his limitations and aren't able to see all the good he does. The proof is in the advanced stats.

I like him, however he doesn't need to be shooting the ball as much as he does.
