Oh btw OP, Baron davis?! Youre gunna compare Baron Davis, who would continually report to camps overweight and out of overall basket shape, to A guy like Jkidd? A proven champion and a guy who has been known to take exceptional care of his body? Im not hating on BD, but when you continually fluxuate in the way you take care of yourself the wear and tear catches up to you a bit faster.
I firmly believe that all the torture he put himself through coupled with what D'Antoni put him through, the boos, the "can Melo play with Jeremy Lin/Melo ruined Linsanity" etc. is precisely what he needed.We'll find out if Melo can be a winner this year. More than just a scorer. Look for a MONSTER campaign.
I'd like to think that he's been forced in to maturation and humbled by the passionate and unforgiving city.
A big campaign - I PREY - could be ahead indeed, and now he has the leadership around him to help him achieve that maturation, not only mentally, but in to his game, too. Become the player he should be, to be the leader and contributor he can be.
Agreed, agreed, agreed.I think we finish as the 2 or 3 seed. We'll get pas the 1st round and then battle NYJ or BOS in the 2nd round. From there... anything is possible. If we get to the Eastern Conf, face MIA... I would say things have fallen into place. Anything can happen then.
We really need Melo's off the ball game to step out of the doldrums of lethargy, too. With that heavy body can get himself open much easier than strolling along the baseline to receive the ball where he likes it. I wanna see that **** cut down on unless he's caught fire.
I could go on talking about this forever....
Stick around, mafrattack!
Im liking camby because he was on the legendary 99 squad and left it on the court unlike hitch Ewing who sat with a sore pinky
well if these guys are done in their careers, there were other interested teams and the Heat wanted Camby as well
Nitpicking nitpicking nitpicking...
Lol, ya'll some Dwight Howards up in here. I was mostly joking. Mostly.
I'm concerned that they look like the Celtics. One young PG leading a bunch of old timers only to make it a little further in the playoffs.
How is Kidd going to motivate the team in the locker room? Show them the movie, Cocoon?
But at the very least Kidd will put Melo in check, that's why he is better than Nash.
