Joey Graham

as a raptors fan, ive seen him play a lot over the years. Sometimes he showed some great basketball skills, while other times the willingness to play was gone. He is a very strong wing player, who can post up and defend post up players very well (i think he guarded dwight howard once). He is also a very good finisher and is good at getting to the free throw line. When the coach gave him time to play in several games in a row, he played very well, but coming off the bench once every couple games for a few minutes did not work for him. I think he is one of those players that needs to get the feel of the game to contribute.

But anyways, he is still a free agent and i havent heard about anyone going after him. The raptors wont take him because there are pretty much full at his position and on the roster. So what teams do you think should pick him up for next year? i think he can improve many teams, and if he gets some burn in games, could contend for MIP next year...

His brother seem pretty good

His brother seem pretty good too but I think he is a free agent too and Cleveland is good with 3s now. New Orleans could use either one and maybe trade one of their wing players because I think Stephen Graham would be an upgrade at the 3 and you could play peja as the two on offense and defense Graham can guard multiple positions. I am not sold on Julian Wright ever being great with this team because he should have done so already but it is not like he gets minutes. I think Wright would do well on the Suns or Phoenix.

He honestly believe he is

He honestly believe he is one of the worst players in the NBA, his best skill is his ability to shoot free throws. He is super strong and a good defender, but he's not really the type of player that can make any impact on a team. He is at best a 12th man.

the grahams

i think joey is alot better than his twin bro stephen.. joey got drafted before him, played in the league when he first came in(stephen went to the d league i think), had more playing time, and just looked better skilled. But i think both can be a positive force on a team, and i think they are better than a 12th man on a team...

I mean the Knicks, I was in a rush when I type that remark and I guess they are not letting you edit stuff anymore.

The Brothers Graham

I think the Graham brothers are in the NBA because of their fantastic genetics. They are what like 6'6'' can jump and both bench over 400 pounds. I watched them play a lot on college, and I think they can benefit an NBA team because they can rebound and out muscle guards on defense without giving up much speed. I think Stephen is still with Indiana, and his game is a little different now than it was in college, he can shoot a little more now.I am kind of surprised no one has picked Joey up as an athletic 10-12th man, but Joey would greatly benefit from developing a 3 point shot, like you mentioned he is a good free throw shooter, but he is very one dimensional on offense, he would be a much more effective player if he could knock down an open 3.
