    so predictions are kinda funny, we are on a roll now tho

    the important thing we are all on the train now
    I have a lot of trouble grading guards. I was terrified he was gonna get lost at next level and I was flat out wrong. Watching college tape I saw it as a guy who did everything because had to, I had no idea watching that tape he could be a cold blooded general.

    Only two back to backs and had us going 1-1 on second night games. look at the numbers and history and long as our starting 5 is healthy that should be the finish with maybe 1 or two games swapped depending on potential trades.

    hickson will get about 10mil... as amazing as he has been, we are too dang small!

    also, i know we are riding high right now, but his value is probably near the peak if we get a great offer.

    i LOVE hickson, but idk about giving 10+ mil for a 6'9" center for the future...

    Also look at other teams schedule. The only one that makes me uneasy is the @Jazz I have as a W that if they make a trade we will prob swap that.

    I am betting 9-10 million if he keeps this up all season, Next year or year after he moves to first big off bench. 9-10 mill for high energy game changing 6th man is worth it. Look at Lamar Odam.

    Couldn't agree with you more the man has earned it here he is one of the most consistent big men down low in the game right now and to be honest he is outplaying Hibbert easily this year so far gotta love it.

    not defensively. Hickson rebounds like a mofo and attacks the rim. but he doesnt protect the rim, and is so-so down low on D.

    yupp Mathews and Hickson are waayy young too even though they look both look like vets... great upside..

    Kerr mentioned how Hickson just passing out of double teams is huge its the little things and chemistry is worth hangin on too.

    We need our big guy to develop that is a huge chip too.. no wonder Neil Oshey is sitting next PA.

    This years NBA version of the Seahawks?

    Hickson has girth to play with centers and its all we got.

    even the HEAT want to workout Oden.. so centers don't grown trees

    Hickson is better than most and getting better... he is buying into our team

    locker room is strong and positive great place to develop talent like Hickson

    Hibbert has been getting blocked by guards for God's sake the man hasn't been consistent at all this year and looks like he has taken a huge step back after signing his fat deal. I will agree he can block better then Hickson but that's about all I'll concede on that. Really that's what a 7 footer should be doing so its not really saying much.
