I was definitely wrong about him as well....I never saw him being as good as he's been offensively

wow

you all were probably the only doubters along with NBA GM's....look at what he did in college and look at who he did it against

I never doubted, in my mind

I never doubted, in my mind the only question surrounding Blair is those KNEES! They have alot of miles on them, not to mention he has no ACLs, how many seasons up and down NBA hardwood will those last?

It's just one game. True he

It's just one game. True he did well in the preseason too, but you can only take so much from that. I know, and you all know, the reason he slipped during the draft was because of his knees.

If I was a GM

It would be a risk that I certainly would and will take... Business has always been risky and there's to side to it... One would be he could turn out to be a solid player that slip away or two, he could be the player who will have season ending injuries... But so far, DeJuan has been impressive... He is the reason why I am intrigued now by the Spurs no matter how "boring" they are...

they need to learn

gms made the same mistake by not drafting Millsap and they didn't learn from it. I thought the Bulls should have drafted him.

right about gallonari how so

right about gallonari how so shewlton?..i dont rember if you said he was goo dor bad...i know from watching the first game he has away to go...people who just checked out the stat sheet thinks he cored at will but those who watched the game saw he had 6pts through the first three quarters and the game was over by the end of the third then he scored during the garbage time when the game was wayy out of reach..jumper looked good though against the second unit i must say

I said that galinari would

I said that galinari would be a player like Bargina after this season or so but someone also said that he would be the second leading scoring for the Knicks. Last night showed that he has it in him to do just that. I am not going solely on stats but the stats show that he can put up numbers and I have seen him move so I think in a few years when he starts playing Like Bargini, people will understand why Knicks took him when they did. I like Eric Gordon but in reality, there are a lot more combo guards like Gordon than versatile big men. At worst Galinari could be an offensively Rasheed Wallace player but I doubt defensively he matching Wallace though.

Blair

Most guys that are monster rebounders in college can usually do the same in the NBA, so I'm not surprised to see him rebound like that plus he is solid around the basket. Nothing spectacular but he knows how to use his body. I think he's a great risk for a championship contending team because even if he only lasts a few years he is good enough right now to help them win. I don't see what the big deal about his knees are though. The surgeries were in high school. He didn't have any injury problems in his 2 years at Pitt.

ill have to see galliarni

ill have to see galliarni puts up numbers when the game isnt already a blow out...because he struggled to score when the starters and meaningful players where in and the game was still in the balance.....as far as those are are monster rebounders in college that should boad well for luke harangody,joh bryant,john brokman jordan hill, thabeet,beasley hansboroh jason thompson

I actually find it offensive

I actually find it offensive that you can't even show enough respect to spell the guys name correctly. Its Bargnani, not "Bargini" or "Bargina". Jeez man, it's just disrespectful.

Blair has been good so far.

Blair has been good so far. If he keeps on doing this he will be a great NBA player. I amazed with his offensive skills, he a monster rebounder he gets out their and runs the floor. He has been doing great so far and I think he will keep doing good.
