    As for Knight, he just turned 21 and is in his second year on a team that was lottery the year before he was drafted, the year he was drafted and if things don't turn around quickly, the year after he was drafted.

    He's averaging 13.5/5.3 this season. 1 more 3 per game with a FT and he's at 18 (rounding). My main concern, and I don't watch any games other than highlights and look at the box score, is that we're not a high octane offense, Stuck/Tay sometimes handle the ball up court and he's still averaging an above normal T/O, IMHO.

    You can't "save" up for FA, per se'. Dallas is able to do it because they can be competitive with Dirk, Marion and some others they grabbed this off season, but nobody is coming to Det on a one year deal unless we overpay given our current foreseeable record. Heck, they'll take a pay cut for a longer contract on a midlevel or contending team before they sign with us.

    And if we aren't competitive now, WTF are we looking at if we sit on 8-15M from next summer to the next? There won't be enough talent.

    Exactly. I've been saying that. People are expecting too much too soon. No playoff team here for a few years. Live with it or tear your hair out and get on high blood pressure meds. I stopped worrying about this crap years ago. Out of my control. I sleep really good at night. It helps that have my teddy bear snuggleing with me.

    I think Knight is trying to push himself a bit faster than he needs to. he is not the link to us winning a championship in the next 2 seasons. I think he is an overachiever and his game will catch up to his where his mind(and coaches) want him to be.

    Calderon?, I think he would be a huge upgrade over Bynum. He could push Knight into different rotation with English or Stuckey. I wouldn't mind seeing Calderon and Knight on the floor in "small ball" situations. Maybe 2yrs/8mil$ or 3yrs/12mil$?

    Whats the point your trying to make? Ya, westbrook

    there are players who play well in the regular season and who don't show up in the playoffs and there are players who show up no matter what. The players who don't show up are the players Rose has and thats why his Bulls team hasn't done crap in the playoffs

    Irving is a PG yes. He is more of a Westbrook type, with more control of the offense. Would I trade Irving for Knight...not sure. Irving has trouble staying on the court, where as Knight does not. I think Irving has the potential to be a super star, but so have a few players that never made it because of the injury bug. Same reason I don't want anything to do with E Gordon.

    I'd do it but I'd feel bad leaving a really nice man like Knight stuck in Cleveland.

    cause irving draws double teams

    When did I say those guys were ever pure point guards? In fact there are anlysts who even say those guys are really 2 guards. But the difference is, that those teams need them to score. Okc doesn't need a pg cause they have 3 guys that can create their own offense. Rose needs to score and doesn't have anyone else, and thats why his bulls teams never shows up in the playoffs.Our team who doesn't have a superstar to create there own offense and who are all role players, ya that type of team needs a point guard to set our players up.
    I'm not sure OKC has 3.

    I said I wasn't sure yo. I said that Irving has a problem staying on the court, same as E Gordon(not sure if you read the whole post). Knight has played in 19 more games than Irving over an 85 game stretch since last season. Knight hasn't missed a game. Not I wouldn't want Irving, but it better come with a first rd pick as insurance, straight up...again,not sure. I would have to what until after the season to see if he can play more than say 72 games a season.

    You keep saying Irving is a superstar but his assist & t.o ratio was worser then knights this year & last & they both avg 5.apg their rookie years. So explain your logic??? Then u say knight played more minutes but he only played 1-2 more minutes, not to mention he is very injury prone. Now you lying again!!! all last year in every game thread all u did was say keep bg trade stuckey start bg bench stuckey now u got amnesia??? because

    mike sometimes I really wonder if you can understand things. Please tell me how I lied when this was my opinion this whole time on him? I'm gonna try to make this as simple for you to understand as i can .... Knight is a shooting guard in a pg's body, just like how westbrook is. Knight is not a pure point guard, he is a scoring guard.

    Our team, who don't have players to create offense for themselves consistently, need a chauncy to set them up, to find them in the right spots to guide them on the court, to be that floor general, not another stuckey

    Only thing Knight is better then stuckey in, is offense. There pg game is the exact same. And Knight is a horrible defender. Stuckey is better then him in that regard

If u go back & read thru the threads u will see Shyfly & a couple others say its because his turnovers. So I show them Irvings t.o.& now all of a sudden Irving has to turn the ball over that much cuz he gets doubled & trippled teamed.
    Knights assist rate was HISOTRICALLY low for a rookie last year. Not just last year, historically! And this is w/ him leading all rookies in minutes. Those numbers are worse then stuckeys and we all know how good of a pg stuckey turned into.

    lol wtf, Mike please stfu if you don't even know what your talking about. If you've never seen Irving play then never respond on this topic. Explain why every superstar has a high turnover rate? Is it not cause they are the main focal point for the other teams? Knight is not, so there should be no reason for him to have more turnovers then assists, like how he has a the last couple of games.

    LOL mike please stop.

    And please show me where I wanted ben gordon? And your calling me a liar? The debates before were me thinking gordon is better then stuckey, not if i wanted gordon on the team

    honestly man

    Quote Originally Posted by mike 810 View Post

    above average? I guess all above average pg's have numerous amounts of games of more turnovers then assists eh?

    Brandon Knight did not average 5 assists a game in his rookie year, he averaged a little more than 3. Explain your logic...
