Interesting Hardaway Jr Tid Bit

Quincy Acy is who I would like us to sign to round out the roster. He mostly gets dunks but he defends and is a beast on put backs and offensive rebounds.

Luigi Datome may be better fit given 3 pt ability.

Actually, Gerald Green looks like the best available that could start. Hits 3's and can drive to the basket. Scored 11.9 ppg last season.

Dorell Wright is another guy that can bury 3's if you find him open. He can drive a little but he is not a create your shot guy. Of these four I like Green who shows best ability to start IMO(our roster). The others are depth players.

I like Gerald Green a lot. Unfortunately, he signed with the Heat. He would have had the Highlight Factory rocking. It would have been nice to throw the fans a bone.

Yes let's sign the guard version of Smith. Minus the passing and defense lol

This is weird. I just checked NBA TV and they don't have our game there. It looks like this:

TOR/SAC-6:30

MIN/LAL-8:30

GSW/CLE-10:30

It has games on from 8:00AM-4:00PM, but the teams are TBA

If our game is there, why's it say 8PM in that article?

Per Phil Jackson:

"J.R. had been exhibiting some delinquent behavior and had gotten into the habit of coming late to team meetings, or missing them altogether," Jackson says. "Also, Shump and Tim [Hardaway Jr.] were regressing, so I decided to meet with them separately and try to find out what, if anything, was bothering them."

Smith was first on the list. "We talked about his statement to the press that our shooting guard depth was going to be the team's asset, but so far it hadn't worked out that way," Jackson says. "He was supposed to carry the scoring load for the second unit and he wasn't doing the job. I also said that because of his unacceptable behavior, he had two strikes against him with this team. He didn't really respond. He's a very sensitive guy, with his big doe eyes. He looked like he was going to tear up. But he finally responded that he was going through some issues with his gal."

Shumpert was next in line. "After he suffered a hip injury in Dallas, his game went rapidly downhill. Did he have any other issues to explain his decline? He said, 'No. I don't know what has gone wrong with my game.' As with J. R., nothing got resolved."

Hardaway was more responsive, he says. "I told him he was casting the ball instead of shooting it. And if his man scored on him at the other end, Tim tried to get back at him by forcing up some kind of shot. Plus, his defense was hurting the team. He was not closing out on 3-point shooters and forcing them to put the ball on the floor, not trusting that defensive help would arrive on the second dribble. Still, [Derek Fisher] told me that Tim's defense was actually improving, so I didn't harp too much on that."

Hardaway seemed to take the comments to heart, Jackson says, and vowed to work on his flaws.
