    As a Phoenix fan, any win these days is always welcome but in the last couple of weeks it has been great to see Michael Redd starting to find his form again and to contribute to a couple of the wins. It seems as if the Phoenix medical staff have worked their magic again and got Michael back on court and making meaningful contributions. Not for one minute do I expect Michael to return to his peak Bucks form when he was having 20 to 25ppg seasons and made the All Star game but he has proved that he can still be a useful contributor to a team in the NBA giving 10 to 15ppg and useful experience.

     Also being regarded as a high character type of player, I could well see a number of contending teams monitoring Michael’s progress with interest as he could be an excellent veteran option either from the bench or as a complimentary starter. Michael has also a relatively few miles on the clock given the length of his NBA career and only playing 50 or so games over the previous 3 seasons combined so it could well be feasible that he could play well beyond 35 as the likes of Grant Hill has done after all his injury issues and how Antonio McDyess did when he reinvented himself with Detroit and later the Spurs.

    Sometimes it is sad to see a player being a shadow of their former selves but when they find the right role and prove they can still contribute then it is always gratifying to see a player thrive in a new role

     I haven’t caught any of these games, but I’m pretty sure Michael Redd at 32 isn’t helping an NBA team win games. Even in his prime, his defense was so bad that I’m not sure how much those 25 points per game really helped. Note, I’m not saying they didn’t help, but that he was always overrated because people didn’t focus on the defensive problems. I can’t believe that somehow he has figured out how to correct that issue. The NBA’s GMs need to get over their infatuation with these older guards and start looking for the next Jeremy Lin.

    do you know how hard it is to thumbs up a guy named Hitster? I like Redd and he had one of the most underated crossovers ever. It was deadly and he just stop using it.

    So many great players have had their careers cut short due to injury.

    As an NBA fan in general its great to see Redd back
