I hope you understand that Hill was an inexperienced rookie, who really had no skills as a basketball player besides his athleticism. I also hope you understand that Darko has always been, and always will be a scrub. Jeffries played well for us. Just as well, if not better, than Hill or Darko would have. I don't see why you have such a hatred for Jared Jeffries. "In the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king." In this scenario, Jeffries is the man with one eye.
Do you think any team is dumb enough to trade for a player just because we were "showcasing" him? Jeffries has been in the league for awhile, we weren't gonna be tricking any team into trading for him.
I know it's depressing, but at the time, Jared Jeffries was our best available center.
Your criticisms of D'antoni are irrational. You couldn't have expected anything more than what we ended up with, when we had such an untalented roster.
