What happened to Balkman last night after all the talk about how the Knicks made such a big mistake trading him? LOL
I think Balkman is a decent player. He doesn’t have an outside shot and can’t hit free throws, but at least he knows it. He scores efficiently inside, rebounds better than the average SF, and plays very good defense. IMO, he just has to be teamed with players that can compensate for his lower than average offensive skill/production. He’s a role player.
The thing that makes me laugh is that he has some fans that think he’s very underrated, better than Chandler, and that it was a huge error to give him away etc…
I am looking forward to a few years from now when Chandler has improved his shot selection and actual skill level in multiple areas and Balkman is still riding the pine because he can’t hit a shot. Of course they will probably still insist all these coaches and managments are wrong about Balkman. ROTFLMAO
