Turk doesn't post people up. Where did that myth start? He could potentially create mismatches if he actually used his size for more than 15 foot fadeaways but alas. Not only is he soft on the block, but he doesn't have post moves like the other guys listed so i don't blame turk for not posting up. I mean, turk is at the point in his career where he knows his strengths and weaknesses and sticks to the things he's best at. I like turk as a player, but i don't like people thinking he's amazing all of a sudden because he's putting up good numbers. He's playing pretty much the same as last season but more consistent which is great, but he's not this unstoppable force that people think he has become. He puts up nice box scores this season, but he's not overly impressive watching him in person or on tv. I'm serious, he never uses 3 of his inches which i would put to great use over here. He's a good player, but some of you are just wayyyy too caught up in the moment. People should really come to some magic games with me. Only $10 and you get to sit with all the real fans in the top row where you can touch the ceiling. As far as the shaq trade again: I still can't get over it. I mean, i'd like to think that the suns have to know what they're doing and that they wouldn't make the trade if it wasn't going to work. But nba gms don't really have a great track record with things like this. And for the heat, at least they can't be worse. Plus, i think they need to give alexander johnson some more run. He's not super talented but he can make due until they get a real big man. Webber back in golden state is pretty weird too. I mean, i guess he can still pass to the perimeter but his defense, rebounding and scoring abilities are pretty diminished. I guess they can always just keep him on the bench if he starts playing like last year in the playoffs. whacked- Sometimes i think we need more gms like isiah. He's pretty terrible but at least he tries. The other side of the spectrum is maybe more infuriating. The gms who never make trades, cuts or free agent signings but just give their own players extensions they don't deserve like the sixers with willie green, dalembert and korver. GMs love their own players way too much and do just enough to make the playoffs but never a chance at a title. It keeps the owners and fans happy enough not to fire them pretty much. Bulls come to mind, magic before actually taking a flyer on rashard (they need to somehow land a solid bigman to team with dwight though), lakers before trading for pau, bucks, nets, kings, pacers, wizards and some more used to do it but have tried recently. I mean, if you're going to rebuild, do it right. Don't tie up cap room in mediocre players just because you need them to get to 30 wins. 30 wins is just as useless as 20. That's why i was happy the sonics and blazers figured it out and just started from scratch. It's already paying off for the blazers and the sonics future looks pretty solid assuming the green/durant chemistry ends up working out well.
