CCJ your prayers were answered.
That was the right thing, closg00. They never should have cut that kid in the first place.
Shelvin defended well, managed the game without turning it over, and two straight Final Fours is a testimony to his competitiveness. I thought he would do well in the D-League and end up either in Europe with a good deal or on another NBA team.
I thought it would have made more sense to start Mack with Beal than to search for guys who have been second-string for years. Price has impressed me for the most part but in preseason neither he nor Pargo outplayed Shelvin. Shelvin is all of 23 and he's already solid off the bench. You don't see teams like he Warriors cut Cedric Jenkins. He's around the caliber of player Mack is.
Good for the Wizards, closg00! I think we should do right by people and that guy didn't deserve to be waived. They also showed some wisdom bringing Shelvin back.
James Anderson is back with San Antonio. Some guys don't set the world on fire right away but they are solid role players. Mack is in that category.
Major props to WizarDynasty for being 100% correct on how good Steven Adams would be.
