Gooden's been playing in the league for 9 years, played for about a team a year and has been a solid role player on a few of them. But he's currently averaging a career high in scoring and is averaging around 20 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists the past five games. Tonight he had a triple double with 15 points, 10 boards and 13 ASSISTS!! Is he actually peaking right now or has he just finally found a role?

Haha typo. But still its weird that a guy whos been a reserve PF most of his career is having huge games as a starting center nine years in. Him and Ilyasova make a surprisingly good low post and after the Ellis deal, they have posssibly the best scoring backcourt in the league. C's or Knicks could lose their slot.

Dude I'm sorry you're just flat out wrong this year.

Over the past 30 days Gooden is averaging 18.4 points 7.7 boards 3 assists and about 1.5 steals
he's been straight killin it since Boguts injury.

He's been incredible for the bucks as a starter, and not for days, but since he got there.

He was 15 and 10 while shooting high percentages with the Clippers a few years ago. He really helped my fantasy team. This year too. I just think he needs consistent minutes and the Bucks are giving him that.

I think Gooden has found his role to answer your question...he is not a guy who will carry your team, but a solid 4th option on a contender

He's pretty Good-en.

Different players play well in different situations, great players play well no matter what... Gooden is not a "great" player.

Which is exactly why I've been saying I love the trade for Milwaukee.

BJ, Ellis, Udoh, Ilyasova, and Gooden is a very solid starting 5 (if indeed it's the starting 5). Very possibly a playoff team in the East. I'm rooting for 'em to get a spot.

No way they start Ekpe, Ersan, and Gooden..
I don't see the Jennings/Ellis duo being cohesive for awhile.

Udoh can't play SF, he'll come off the bench, but that is a good team in the East... But if Dwight's traded to the Nets, they could make a push for that 8th spot, they're only 5 losses out.

Yup. It was amazing how many Bulls fans were up here when I went.

You just nailed it right there. Every nba scrub player is capable of putting up good numbers for a week.

Hmm... For whatever reason I had it in my mind that Udoh played both forward positions. Maybe I'm mixing him up with Aminu? I don't know, but whatever... Dunleavy and Delfino are both serviceable players at that position I think.
