I want to know other peoples feelings about the Nets PG Devin Harris. Do you think he will help us more since Jefferson is gone? What are your feelings towards him?

literally, I think they are way better off with him running their team NOW over Kidd.

i think devin harris can be a top pg in a couple years if he works hard and keeps getting better. hes fast, one of the better defensive pgs and isnt to bad on offense either. i think the nets have a bright future, with their young guys they have and their cap room. Harris is a perfect fit for the nets imo

He is a good point guard, very quick. However he won't reach the level of top tier PG since Deron, and C-Paul have surpassed him and are younger. Each year a new great point lands in the league through the draft and Devin will always find himself behind 6-9 guys on the best PG lists.

I love Devin Harris. Loved him in college when he lead my Badgers and I've enjoyed watching his progress on the pro level. He's a good pg. He's so damn quick, and is a pretty decent defender. If he could just get a better jumper he'd be money. He's reminds me of Tony Parker.

When the Mavs-Nets trade happened my thoughts was that it was an excellent trade for the Nets and still have the same opinion...

I see Harris as a solid player that will only improve.

08-18-2008, 02:09 PM
he is one of the FASTEST players I've ever seen...i remember during a Mavs game they said that there is a courtside camera..that goes back and forth with the players and that Harris was so fast it couldn't keep up..

i think he has the potential 2 be a 21 ppg 3 rpg 7 aspg 2 spg player

Marcus was so great when he had confidence. Last year though... he broke his foot and his confidence was just terrible. one good thing for Warriors fans though when Kidd was traded Marcus started coz Harris was still injured and he was great. Warriors have some great talent going into next year


i dont think he would be a top 5 point guard but a top 8 yes
top 8 works for me!

RapsFan4Life
08-18-2008, 02:37 PM
great young kid with good work habits, he will definetly be a star in the league one day and Dallas is sad to have lost him, he is not a super star type player and doesnt have the athletisim or strength some of the top guards Baron, CP have, but he has a nice drive and passing, work on his shot and look to get into the lane more often ... he is in top 15 pg's to me right now, wouldnt be a franchise player but a solid role player
in the top 10 pg's forum lots of nets fans argued he is 8th or 9th above jose calderon and I think that is simply not true, he is a good younger player but there are other good young guards like jose that are better then he is and will continue to improve as harris does

08-18-2008, 02:38 PM
I think Devin's blazing speed will allow him to develop into a great PG.
With averages of 14.8 ppg, 5.8 assts, and 2.7 rpg last year, he is already a good PG. With the Nets his averages were even better with 15.4 ppg, 6.5 assts, and 3.3 rpg. It'll be interesting to see if he steadies out there for his career or continues to progress into an potentially elite pg.

Devin Harris is a good young PG. He's solid on defense however he does have his flaws. He has a tendency to get bullied by bigger PG's and his decision making is suspect. That's why I don't think he will ever be one of the top tier PG's however I would put him in the same class as Kirk Hinrich.

Each year a new great point lands in the league through the draft and Devin will always find himself behind 6-9 guys on the best PG lists.So, what makes you so sure??? Guys like Nash, Billups didn't start becoming on top of that list till later in their careers.....Harris, if manage to stay in play without injuries have a shot, quickness, defense and playmaking is already there......Once he gets used to the leadership role and add 1 or 2 nice players that he can run with, sky is the limit for him.....

Devin Harris has a pretty good 3-point shot, he does need to work on his pull-up jumpers though. he plays good defense, he's quick, he's got good size for a PG, he's a good pointguard, can distribute the ball fairly well. I like this guy. still young too.

If the Mavericks kept Devin Harris they could've been a contender still. Now with an aging Jason Kidd it seems like Dirk should skip town and demand a trade off of a crap team. Jason doesn't have it nymore and the Mavericks will be lucky to make the playoffs...period. Nets got a good deal.

We saw Rondo play in the finals and he just sucked IMO until the last game of the series and it made him look bad when the Lakers were making him shoot wide open shots and I mean wide open shots and he missed most of them.Dont get me wrong I think Rondo has alot of potential but he is gonna have to start hitting shots because otherwise he will be average at best because the Lakers gave every other team a blueprint to guard him

You must have missed The Mavs series against Golden State a couple years ago. Harris got absolutely owned by Baron Davis. Harris' inability to guard Davis is the main reason the Mavs lost that series (that and Stephen Jackson getting in Dirk's head). Harris does well against quicker PG's however he's been horrible against big strong PG's throughout his career.

I have no opinion on the Nets either way, nor Dallas. He is the best on the ball defensive point guard in the NBA, and could become a top 6-8 offensive point if his shot improves a bit, as well as his decision making. New Jersey won that trade with Dallas in my opinion. I am not so sure I would trade him straight up for Kidd at this point.

you are taling two years ago, and Baron is so physically strong, nobody can guard him one on one. Harris a terrific at pressuring point guards, and keeping them out of the lane. Baron played out of his mind in that series. Nobody could have stopped him. Now, if only he would stay healthy and motivated like that all the time. Everyone has looked bad at times dude. Everyone. Ask Kobe about the finals this year.

The only reason people say this, is b/c NJ got the younger player and the cap space...I can see why some would feel this way, it wasn't exactly a bad deal, but lets face it, Devon Harris isn't gonna have more of an impact for any team the way J Kidd will...probrobly until Kidd retires.

Rondo made a handful of impact plays throughout the postseason...He's young, and played like it at times, but he showed his jumper has some promise, and he can defend.

All the negatives you said are typical young player issues, I'm not a boston fan, but I can see ability and talent, and this kids got all the tools to take a huge step in his career in the next couple of years.

I'll tell you one thing, nobody would be surprised if he put the gloves on your boy Calderon, on way to dropping 25 on his dome.

I think devin is going to be an all star. And i'm not saying that because i'm a nets fan. I've always been a fan even when he was on Dallas I thought he was going to be a top tier pg. He has many things to do before he can be at that level but he is one of hte most talented guards in the game.

I think with a about 20 games under the Lawrence Franks syster, and playing with Vince.. he should be more comfortable with being in jersey,.. playing with vince,.. and most importantly the playbook. Last year with the Nets he averaged about 16 and 6 ... Thats was with less minutes, as the teams third option, and adjusting to a new system... and he was hurt..... This year expect him to be about 18-20 ppg.... 7-9 ast pg....... I really think he can do it.. In dallas he was like the 4th option on the team.. I don' think he got the chance he deserved and that hurt his stats a little.. Players liek Josh Howard, Dirk, Jt... stackhouse... all needed the ball in their hands ot be effective..... AS the 2nd option for the nets.. and primary ball handling duties.. I expect a lot from him...

On a skill set level.. i cant say enough about him... The guy is very very very quick.. and is arguably the fastest pgs in the game... If he develops a jump **** ( which is his biggest flaw)... The defense will actually have to guard his shot.. and that would lead to him being able to blow right past the dfender if they have to play his shot.. It would really take his game to the next level.. because as far as slashing and getting to the paing.. the kid is so talented..... He knows how to finish as well.. He can dunk.. and finishes everything strong... His defense is amongst some of the best on ball defenders in the Nba...just ask tony parker..... Hes a major upgrade for The nets on the defensive end... It's important to have a player like that... His defense is only going to get better....

His skill set is very very similar to Gary Paytons.... Now don't go crazy and tell me that i'm smoking or somthing..i never said he was going to be the next gary payton.. but their skill sets are very very very similar... With some hard work.. he could be as good as him... Their games are very identical...

No, Kidd is toast. The Mavs were better with Harris. I didn't get the trade then, and I don't now. Kidd doesn't even look at the basket anymore, and his defense is average at best nowadays. He is a better passer no doubt, by a lot, but he can't pressure the other teams guard, and Harris is already a far better shooter and scorer. Dallas lost that trade. Period. I will give you this, Kidd sells more tickets and jerseys, so for profit, he is better. But the Nets already have VC living off his 2000' season dunks for that.

Unless he shoots about 1000 jumpers a day in the offseason, that will always be his weaknes. But luckily, with the big 3 there, he is aloud to roam. He is a very good defender and rebounder for his position, for sure. Let's see what he looks like in a few years, when those 3 aren't there to shield his weaknesses, but are still making 60 million and on the major decline.

People need to stop with this, "New Jersey won that trade with Dallas in my opinion"

The only reason people say this, is b/c NJ got the younger player and the cap space...I can see why some would feel this way, it wasn't exactly a bad deal, but lets face it, Devon Harris isn't gonna have more of an impact for any team the way J Kidd will...probrobly until Kidd retires.

NJ got younger, not better.


To your credit Hawk, you did say you wouldn't deal him straight up, so you kinda see where I'm coming from.

well, their goal is LeBron in 2010, so they are trying to clear cap space. In that regard, they won the deal. And Dallas's winning % was 66% when Harris left, 60% the rest of the season. So they got worse actually. The Nets slid a few % points as well, but they knew they were not contenders, they have to look to the future.

that deal wasnt for LeBron... that deal was because J-Kidd was pissed we didnt give him an extension. Kidd asked for a trade

We won the trade:confused:

We gave an angered Kidd with no passion to play for us anymore for a gaurd 10 yrs younger. We also gained two 1st rounders, 2010 who knows where the mavs will be. we stole the deal bro.

I like Harris

It was a good trade to get Harris in the J-Kidd deal.

Fast, young, solid point guard and is still getting better.

Should be the starting point guard for many years to come.

So, what makes you so sure??? Guys like Nash, Billups didn't start becoming on top of that list till later in their careers.....Harris, if manage to stay in play without injuries have a shot, quickness, defense and playmaking is already there......Once he gets used to the leadership role and add 1 or 2 nice players that he can run with, sky is the limit for him.....

Oh that's right! There are a whole squadron of PG's riding the bench in the NBA who could also pass Devin Harris. The difference with those guys (Nash, Billups) is they played back-up when they were unknown.... they struggled to find good situations to fit into. Devin was plopped down onto a PLAYOFF team and given the reigns and given some time and failed to find his inner all-star. He's good but never a top 10 PG.

Too bad Bibby, Ford, Williams, Rose are all in new situations also. It's gonna be hard for Harris to shine.:p

i am actually a fan of harris.. i think he has a chance to shine on this nets team.. pretty good defender, slahses well to the hoop, improving jumpshot.. imo he may need to improve his vision a little more, but not bad.. i just wonder if he's going to really embrace that leadership role b/c everyone knows VC won't..
