Who is "chief" in this quote?


"I understand the fans' frustration of Evans not starting, but it's a better compliment to have Ryan Anderson and Evans coming off the bench," says Williams. "The one thing with Josh is he doesn't shoot it well enough, not that Chief is shooting it great. But Anthony needs shooters around him, guys who can penetrate and create."

-From ESPN Insider

Calling Aminu the chief is an insult to Robert Parrish.

I thought Chief was one of those oxymoronic veiled insult nicknames, like calling a fat guy Tiny.

His nickname is chief because Al Farouq means "the chief has arrived"

That's it. This man is borderline delusional.

What's wrong with surrounding him with penetrators and shooters? He's basically saying Childress is so bad I'm sticking with Aminu, not that Aminu is a shooter or creator.

In the same quote, he states that it is better for Reke and Ryno to come off the bench, without any explanation for why that makes sense. Then, he proceeds to say Davis needs shooters (Ryno) and penetrators (Reke) around him.

We are playing Tyreke 24!!! minutes a game.

no it doesn't, not even close. its arabic and from FaRaQa, meaning truth from the untruths, or discerning what is true.
