    Default Mike Bibby

    He's gotten a lot of flak this season (not much hate or anything, didn't play enough to), people said he could barely move, etc., but out of all our PGs he probably makes the least mistakes. I hope he becomes the permanent back-up for the rest of the season. He handles the ball well, doesn't try to get fancy, has made some nice passes, doesn't take a lot of shots, and ya never know, his shot might come back. He's not slow, just hasn't had the shooting in a long time. Otherwise I feel confident when he's on the floor.

    He also now beats out Bosh as the most unintentionally funniest player in the league after the jokes and him looking like Eminem in nyk_nyk's sig.

    I gotta agree. He is no where near as mistake prone as BDiddy right now. Smart heady player. You could make an argument to start him.

    BDiddy hasnt caught on that he cant make the plays that he did as a kid. His reaction time is off by a tick. He has to adjust and stop trying to make the great play every time he's on the court...

    He is not great. But then again, how many backup PG's at his age are? Let him contribute the way he can.

    LMAO, that's what i was thinking, iv'e been killing him this year, but tonight he looked ok, and he does take care of the ball well.I wouldn't start him though, but i wouldn't mind if he gets a little more PT.

    Bibby is far from great at this stage, but with Baron Davis playing like horse**** (apart from that one fluke-game) we honestly need to talk about who our starting PG in the Playoffs should be.

    I think Bibby fits the job better at this point. He seems to be more solid and makes less mistakes. He won't score, but I can live with that as long as he can do the things a PG is supposed to do. Davis on the other hand either turns the ball over, takes a stupid shot where he hits the front of the rim or makes a mistake on defense...

    A shame about Lin, with him we could be pretty good right now.

    I never understood why we didn't go for Iverson. He's still better than every healthy PG on our roster and we took the gamble on J.R. Smith character wise, so why not Iverson too?

    I feel like PG is what's holding us back from winning a Playoff series this year.

    We're back to where we were at the beginning of the season, running the team w/o a PG. If D'Antoni were still running the team we would have a 5 game losing streak and blaming the injury to Stat and a washed up BD for it. Thank god for Woody.

    Bibby has been ok but he has games where he has done nothing and can not hit an open shot. What he did well last game was finding guys on the swing pass....I believe he had 6 assists and 5 rebounds...which is very good for a guy like Bibby off the bench. And he hit a 3.

    If Bibby can just be more consistent with his 3 point shot, then most people would not mind playing him every game.

    As long as he does very little to hurt us I'm ok with him. I don't expect anything other than him bringing the ball up and passing it off. Made shots and a few assists are bonuses to me.

    **** his 3. Ill take his spotty 3 right now over toney "I can't run an offense" douglas or Baron"I hope they blame these TO, on Injuries" Davis any day. Turnovers ech night are fn killing us and is why a team like miami will feast on us in the first round.

    bibby doesn't penetrate to colapse any surrounding defense. he hangs too much outside. he might work for awhile with iso melo but, if you need a different look. he's useless.

    so, i'll take baron and lin, anyday. baron only had 2 TO yesterday and 1 pf. it's not so much about his injury but, his bball conditioning/shape. i bet once he get his cardio to 90/100%, he's going to be a different player(also dropping some of that weight can reduce chances of joint injury. over the summer , not playoff times would be more a logical time to do it).
    gamewise, he just got to stop penetrating too deep and passing it. just look for his shot instead.
