He's nothing, but a semi role player at best. One of the worst trades in franchise history giving JRich for him. People want to compare that with Richmond for Owens trade, but Owens was a good player that was mulittalented and straight away the team won more in his rookie season, BWright was never anything when he was here

Glad to see Kenneth Faried doing so well. He's probably the first sleeper pick I've ever gotten right.

Good call, he's been fantastic.

He was my favorite sleeper as well. Wanted to trade down for him, then after we drafted Klay I wanted to trade Wright for a late 1st to get him. :roll:

Only caught the end of the game 76ers vs Knicks. Sixers are either a really low bbiq team or they gave up. IDK...total clock management fail by the players.

Skill set, yes.

But overall, much better IMO.

Faried is lighter, way more athletic, better motor, better character.

Take those attribute differences, and put them on Fortson. You get a guy that may not be able to bang with the big boys, but he is agile enough to guard the PnR, adequately deal with switches, run the floor like a deer, finish like a freak, and be an incredible locker room guy. Yet, he has the rebounding knack that a fortson, Evans, Millsap, etc has.

An ellison/gates/scrooge Mcduck version of Amundson is my best comparison I can think of.

Yeah, I hope he gets a few more good years in the association. He always seemed like a good guy.
