when he wasnt injured he played very well for us. unfortunately he had bad luck of injuries before the playoffs and during so that hurt us...but he was very consistent with us when 100%. hes not a good 3 point shooter but he can knock it down adn always rebounded and slashed....missing many layups but in energy on both ends could change a game. i think we should have kept him since we didnt for ebanks' sake and were not even playing him....and now barnes is doing great for the clips as he could have been doing under dantoni and with Nash again

That's a fantastic sentence. :man10:

He's a below average shooter


So...his shooting....is....inconsistent....


Nah, more like consistently below average.

He's consistently inconsistent, you have to give em that. :man11:
I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

glad to be rid of this fake thug, never embraced him. plays no defense, makes no shots, is a pouting baby who gets the occasional rebound, layup, and technical foul

he had no business wearing the colors.

Wish he were still here to add some testosterone to this roster. Pau's estrogen is infecting the team, sans Kobe.

He was still better than pretty much every bench player we had last season. He's not a great player by any means, but he's still better than crap like Ebanks, Blake, Clarke, Duhon, DJO, and Sacre. Sure he couldn't make a shot to save his life, but he was a high motor guy who gave us extra possessions, and was a phenomenal cutter. It's really not his fault he was forced to be our sixth man, and play in Mike Brown's horrific offense.

I do think he should've been brought back, considering that Ebanks really hasn't proved anything yet, and has a lot of growing up to do himself. He would be the perfect end of rotation guy for the minimum.

what are you talking bout, we only had Brown for 1 of Pau playoff failure, the other year was under Phil.

Exactly the point I wanted to make. :man11:


well if thats your way of knocking the hiring of Pringles, at least the offense has looked alot more smoother....I know you you were pretty prominent bout Brown holding up that chip' in July but at least give Pringles some due

If injuries and inconsistency haven't been mentioned, they should be. I liked the toughness he brought though.
