better chance

who do you think has a better chance of redeeming their career after all of the hype between Robert Swift, and Gereld Green?

Gerald Green if he is placed

Gerald Green if he is placed on a right team he can flourish. Trying to recover from a injury and play the same is harder

green

its a lot tougher for centers to be considered great in the league than wing players. i think green could develope into a great player and swift is just a straight up bum.

Gerald Green can have a

Gerald Green can have a great career as a dunker/defender

Robert Swift is just terrible. He is a 14th man off the bench at best

it takes longer for big men

it takes longer for big men to develop which is why i think he has a chance. if he actually decides to put some effert into the game (instead of spending all his time on tattoes) i think with the talent he still has he could be a decent big. remember injuries have hurt him and if it wasnt for injuries right now i think he could be a solid player.

What talent does Robert

What talent does Robert Swift have?? Wow, he has always sucked. Even when he was in high school. Sebastian Telfair blocked his shot in the Mickey D's game. He runs very slow, isnt polished on offense or defense, he has a low Bball IQ, and he's weak. The only thing he OK at is getting rebounds.

Green

Green will be good in an offensive system if he does't just shoot jumpshots

what im saying is if he can stay healthy and actually work aty his game with his rebounding he will be a solid player. still a question mark that he will put work into his game.

He isnt an NBA player from

He isnt an NBA player from what I've seen, outside of his size. Gerald Green at least shows that he can have a role in the NBA, as a scorer.

no Kwame brown is a servicable third string center. Swift will probably be evan better.

Brown was the 1st pick in

Brown was the 1st pick in his draft, and Swift was 12th. They both suck, and they are suppose to be starters at the 5. 4pts and 4 rebs is bad, its bad for the average player, let alone for players that were picked in the lottery. You cant seriously justify 4 pts and 4 rebs as good.

If you could give both full
If you could give both full health for their entire careers, Swift would have almost certainly been a better player. He could have developed into a serviceable starter or at least solid backup, while Green hardly qualifies as a roster-worthy player. But injuries have destroyed Swift, and he may no longer be NBA material at all.

He may have justified

He may have justified getting a roster spot, but he was never a player that showed alot of anything to me. Never. He should never play more than about 7-8 minutes a game, even in full health. He honestly has no tools as a player, outside of rebounding, and thats only because he's 7 feet tall.

Green has a good jumper, and he's a monster athlete. Teams will take chances on him because its obvious he has alot of offensive talent and potential defensive ability (if he tried).
