ITS EARLY IN THE SEASON BUT CAN WE ADMIT SOME OF PRESEASON WRONGS
of course the season is still going and early but you can almost tell how each player is gonna play by now..some will play a lil better some will play a lil worst and maybe one or 2 will will jump wayyyy up or wayyyy down...this is for some of us to say so far we were wrong and jumped the gun on a player just because they played well/bad in the summer leauge and/or preseason..also minutes shouldnt be an excuse unless the player is hurt or playing behind a very very good player/allstar
the most noteables
will also post quotes from some people from the summer chats if they made a definite proclamation about how good or bad a player was gonna play
i was wrong about marrow..i thought he was gonna play alot better then he has...everyone else i was on target with
3 Games (for most of the teams) into the season and you are already able to say that you made the right calls on all of these guys? You know there are 79 more games left? The half way point is a good place to evaluate, not a handful of games into the season. There is a lot that can change between now and the end of the year. I think the best way to get in your i told you sos is when the season is over.
yeah, i agree with doubledribbler. I was gonna comment, but i can't honestly say how i feel about any of those guys right now. Some rookies take a month to get adjusted.
hmmmm which is why i said SO FAR....its like how the nba gives players of the week..so everyone else who comes on here please read the so far portion of this. and of course use common sense
havnt both of yall already mentioned how well someone is playing so far this season?..rookie and vet?
3 games into the season last year gordon hadn't done anything. he then turned out to be pretty damn good. its way too early.
I can admit that I thought Sean May would never see the floor and now he is starting. LOL
I can admit that I thought Mike Dunleavy would be fired before 3 games were played.
I can admit that I thought Joe Alexander was at least gonna get some PT but now he is hurt and without a contract for next year.
I can admit that everything about this thread is as premature as precum. Come on man, give it at least a month.
everyone now a days is so quick to judge and so quick to forget. Kobe bryant is the best baller in the world, lets not forget he very easily could have raped a ho in Colorado (we'll never know). A-Rod shining in the postseason, dude is a liar and a cheat, no one's talking about it. and everyone wants to make their judgement 3 GAMES into the season. jus plain dumb
I know exactly what you mean. I really thought that users on this site were very smart and realistic basketball fans, but only the former has proven to be true. They're just the same type of people that I talk to in class and hang out with on a regular basis, only with more basketball knowledge.
Quincey, just how big is your ego? It's a handful of games in and you're already going on about how you were right. Come on, premature is an understatement.
^^^ +1 ^^^
"It's early, but..." JUST STOP there. You shouldn't have even finished the sentence Quincey. You said yourself that it was early, but you STILL just couldn't stop yourself lol. Stop making judgements. That's why I've consistently told you since the first game of the season that let's wait until the mid-point of the season before we start making real judgements.
Morrow is good but now the is not getting minutes. I said on a earlier posts but i know it will not happen. The Knicks could use Morrow right now because Chandler is more of a 3 and Jared Jeffries does not need to be in the league. Too bad we can't pull off a trade for Jeffries for Morrow or something. Next year the Knicks could do stuff like this if they can't get any big names. They could do like the Piston did give decent contracts to players that have potential but are not proven and stock on a lot of them. It could pan out nicely you have a lot of middle tier paid players with starter talent. Right now it would appear I was wrong about Sessions which disappoints me because I know that if he would have taken less money to play with the Knicks, both would be better for it. He won't get minutes in Minnesota and I hope they trade him if not this year next year.
yeah morrow isnt getting the minutes and when he gets out there hes not makin gthe most of them like he did last year so i can understand why he doesnt get more minutes..his bread and butter is his 3pt shot but thats been pretty bad so far
also conley hasnt been stepping it up like i thought he would..hes not playing horrible but not particularly great either
