    I was a fan of Evan Turner because he can impact the game in multiple ways, and has shown throughout his first two years that he could do that...not sure what Williams has shown.

    Williams was 0-10. That's enough to earn him some serious flak.

    Btw, Williams "can't hit 3s" and yet he's 40% on the year.
    28% on his career.

    What are you talking about? He's said repeatedly that he was disappointed in himself over his rookie year. He cut weight, made some adjustments to his shot and worked on his D because the coaching staff told him too. He's working at it, but it's a process.

    If it was just one game, I wouldnt be giving him flak.

    That is a very subjective argument. If you look at his stats, they are similar to Williams' through 2 years.

    In defense of Williams in the comparison presented, "Call Me Rock God" was 45 years old when he came into the league. So far, all Willum has done is lose weight and get a big *** back tattoo.

    Turner has a position though. Williams is in between two positions.

    Yeah, but we're talking about now and whether he has improved. Now, I'm sure you'll say it's a small sample size and that is my point - we haven't even played 10 games.

    I'm done with the Williams discussion after this post, TopDog can have the last word if he wants it. I don't like being too negative on a player of the team I cheer for, but Williams hasnt really shown me anything, other than he cant dribble, and he cant shoot, and that he makes poor decisions. His athleticism, and "potential" is what gives me some hope for him...but outside of athleticism, he hasnt shown me much else.

    Seriously done talking about DWill for the night.

    A non-shooting 2-guard isn't exactly a great argument. Williams is establishing his ability to play by working on his defense.

    Hope he is ok, that'd be a big loss that we don't need.

    Sure I'll take a final post. Turner's 2nd year stats vs. Williams so far:

    MINS: 24.4 26.4
    PTS: 10.8 9.4
    REB: 4.8 5.8
    AST: 0.8 3.8
    TO: 0.8 1.6
    FG/GM: 4/10 4/9.1
    3PT/GM: 0.8/2 0.2/0.8
    FT/GM: 2/2.8 1.1/1.7

    Tough game for us. Too many injuries to our scorers.

    Williams need to figure his game out soon. I'm starting to loose hope for him. He was draft as a NBA ready player and this is how much NBA ready he is?
