i thought after a very solid season andris would be the next great european center but he's been really bad this year, he hasn't even solidified himself as the starter after coming back from injury...he's not overly athletic and not the most aggressive offensive player
his numbers are garbage this season
5.3 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.7 bpg and hes shooting a laughable 7% from the free throw line (1-14)
i think golden state could make a play for a center this offseason...they need to do SOMETHING..maybe fire nelson, or trade brandan wright but this team is very very bad and are not going to be competing anytime soon in the western conference
did he not just come back from injury and only plat a couple of games?
hes been back for around a month and a half.... hopefully they soon realize their backcourt is stacked and throw something at phoenix for half a season of amare..
wsell his point have alot to do with all the gunners he has on his team. he rarely gets to get a shot up. wayy to early to say hes been playing bad this year because he's been injuried since nov. what has he played like 13 games?...dont be so quick to dumb him since hes coming back from injury. patience
true... especially back injuries.... but still... with the injuries in their frontcourt he should be producing more... especially getting more offensive rebounds..
you cant expect a guy to produce more when im pretty sure that back is still hurting and he has missed most of the season. even if he plays all 40min. if you arent in the same shape as the other nba big men on top of being injuried you prob wont be doing much. hes actually doing pretty well considering. and with his history of play it would take a dummy to think of trading him unless they could get a better player. especially with him being only 23. im glad fans arent the gm's making decisions, there would prob be so many dumb trades with no team really being able to jell. and go forbids that a player has a bad stretch of games..lol
he recently had an 19 boars,8 blolcks and 9 points...hes slowly coming back
I'll take him in OKC if you're not happy with him. ;]
I'll take him in utah if your not happy with him.
you need to be patience and btw he cannot get the ball in game almost every of his points comes after offensive board
also hes never been a great offensive weapon. his strong suit has been his rebounding. and ill take him as well on the lakers as a back up center
Wow people want to judge Biedrins on only a month's worth of play after an injury instead of looking at his whole body of work. Especially last season... he had an excellent season. I'll say it again, he was really impressive last season.
The team is not very very bad. They have a crazy coach & have had A TON OF INJURIES. The talent is there.
It is pretty hard to compete in the WEST when you have all these players injured at one time or another: Azubuike, Turiaf, Biedrins, Brandan Wright, Morrow, Anthony Randolph, Radmanovic, Claxton, Raja Bell, CJ Watson.
Azubuike only played 9 games. He is out for the season.
Turiaf has played 12 games. He is currently battling an ankle injury.
Radmonvic has played 28 games. He is currently battling an achilles injury.
Brandan Wright hasn't played a single game this season.
Morrow now has a knee injury & has missed several games.
Randolph has played 33 games & he is now out indefinitely with an ankle injury.
Raja Bell has only played 1 game for the Warriors. He is out with a wrist injury.
Biedrins has only played 15 games all season.
No need to jump on the Warriors & act like they have a garbage team.
yeah they arent that bad. they arent that good either though and its not just the coach. they can score but they cant check anyone
lol his first game back was December 28th against the Celtics...and he's still not 100% we don't need him to score because we would never utilize an inside presence (fire nellie)...add the fact that before Randolph and Radmonovic were injured they had improved their rebounding too, Andris' numbers would go down a little. We drafted him for defense and rebounding, and if you look at his past couple games, he's done exactly that. So give him a chance, and wait till they get healthy before you check em imo
