I agree also, some folks seem to think he is the second coming of Pistol when all I intended when posting this was he is on the decline of his career, he is a natural PG, and he would be a servicable backup to finish the season out with if we can make the proper roster moves to attain him AT THE RIGHT PRICE. Wade will probably try to get him also but who would Miami get rid of? Chalmers was named their starter the other day I thought (or was it Arroyo being named over Chalmers?). They still do have House (who can all of a sudden make his rushed 3 point heave) even though he is more of a 2 in a 1s body.
I think there are 27 days remaining until the deadline and Donnie has played his hand masterfully so far. I'm excited to see how it plays out and if we can sure up this team for a stretch run.
For weeks most on the forum have agreed we need a solid, experienced backup point guard, and now one just falls into our laps. That is worth getting excited about.
That's all I'm saying. I'm not expecting it to be all elbow passes and fake behind the back stuff.
A backup point guard that's actually a point guard, not an undersized shooting guard. That's why I'm "over-the-top"
Yeah. White Chocolate would be a solid 10 minute per game guy who could give Felton a rest because TD isn't really ready to run the point yet...
He's perfect for our team. His injuries would be an issue, but he wouldn't be playing that much, Felton needs this, and Williams keeps a great tempo is a smart pure PG. He's also honest with his team. He'd be another leader. Also knocks down shots efficiently. We wouldn't need to trade Randolph for a back-up. Seriously, Donnie should check the status of his health, and if it's good enough to give Felton significant rest, do it. He'd be great.

Please dont come at me like that again. I spoke the truth dont get mad at me because someone ELSE called you out for OVERHYPING a washed up White Chocolate.
This Jwill is like the Hershey bars you find at the dollar store. The stuff that melted in the package or is expired on the wrapper. LoL He might help a little but hes not gonna lead us to the promised land.
Hes not Jason Kidd (Age Comparison). Hes not strong like Kidd. He doesnt rebound like Kidd. He NEVER was as accurate or as good a passer as Kidd. Plus he has 2 bad knees.
Simply put Jwill has not aged gracefully and in the long run all he will be remembered for is his And1 style of play. Also please dont tell me about how HE won a ring. A HIGHLY motivated Shaq and Dwade WON a ring and everyone else was just along for the ride.
...Of course he's not going to lead us to the promised land, duh.
Anybody who thinks he is is a moron.
But what IS he going to do? He's going to serve as a backup PG who can make it so that Felton isn't playing 38 minutes a night in EVERY game. That's all we need out of White Chocolate.
It's true, I was having a heated (no pun intended trust me) discussion with a buddy of mine last night over a few brews and we both agreed LeBum is uncoachable and will never reach the heights he should have ascended to. I also think Spolestra is a much better coach then is being displayed and once he gets fired in Miami he will show this. They are too talented and to egotistical to allow him to coach. If LeBum were to realize the type of player he could be they wouldn't need a PG because he would sacrifice some of his scoring to be a distributor solely and score when it comes within the flow of their offense. Thus allowing Wade to drive and play his normal game and Bosh to remain coat-tailing down there off those two. Bum as the PG down there would then make things scary for the league. If you put out Chalmers game in and game out and he gives you that anemic game he played against us, you will remain searching for something you have on your own roster. Surprised Riles hasn't said anything to Bum yet.
J-Will is not gonna come play for us. Please lets be realistic. Hes not gonna take the Vet Min. to come play for us. He wants to play for a true contender or not at all. My opinion is not at all. Hes washed up!!! Now please someone close this FAIL thread.
