No surprise as Sykes showed in SL he could distribute and gave effort in trying to guard the ball handler.

Wanamaker might be the player most loathed by the fanbase I've seen in awhile.

That's a shame, because he is likely doing what he can. No player wants to be bad at what they do.
But, with the season being as bad as it is, fans may use him for a target for their discontent.

Fans would do far better to focus those feelings on Simon, Pritchard and Carlisle.

Yeah its not really his fault either. He just sucks and really did nothing well.

Personally I hated CoJo more.

A few minutes in Brooklyn I recall and now Hmmm. Chicago must have had too many in front of him to keep or play him.

I like his rebounding but maybe there’s a consistency issue of contributing more than just flashing occasionally.

Chicago desperately needed help at the PF spot and they let Alize go. That should tell you something.

8-16 with 4-8 from 3
4 rebounds
6 assists
1 steal
1 turnover
22 points

Great game and great hustle hopefully this experience will get him familiar with how to defend the taller guards. Can’t complain for end of the bench player.

J Holiday, Turner, and Brissett had a rough night as did Domas’s free throw stroke. :noway:

Vorda's hate for Darren Collison was Epic!

But I'll tell you I'm liking Sykes and Washington better than LeHurt and Brogdan. Trade them in the off season.
