The biggest Surprise This Season 

Post#1 » by a-rod » Sun Jan 6, 2008 1:34 pm

TO ME douby is Defense Kirk Hinrich like potentials, John Salmons is second mainly because i know he had it in him, if you watch him last season when he drive to the basket you know hes unstoppable, this season he improved his shot and he become more unselfish player cause that was the knock on him by Sixers fans.

Must be true, if it's a rumor you read on Hoopshype.

Reggie's coaching has been a tremendous surprise. I thought he might have a couple of problems for his first season, but really, he looks like he's been coaching at the NBA level for years. He makes good decisions and most importantly, he already has the player's respect. I hope he's our coach for many seasons to come.

I think some overrate Douby. Maybe if he gets that "deer caught in the headlights" look out of him, maybe I'll think different.

I like all 4 selections:) plus I would add that Petrie signed Beno after he was released by the Tpups and Beno has played great!

I got to go with brad first. Last year I gave up on him and thought he was over the hill. He looks great this year so far. I really think that 20 pounds he lost is making a huge difference.
Second is reggie. Lately we have been close in every game and if we don't commit a couple turnovers here and there and make freethrows we are at .500. I disagree with his zone though, its O.K. now and then but teams get wide open threes off it every time.
Quincy has been playing great D for his size and his shot finally looked good against chicago.
John is John and it will be interesting how he reacts when bot artest and martin are back.

I'm going with Brad. He looked finished last year, but has completely turned it around so much that if Spencer Hawes becomes this Brad with a post game, I will be a very happy fan.

I voted for Theus but Brad is defnitly back, or just better than ever. And some of the credit has to go to Theus for telling him to put himself into 5th gear. Im also surprised about the season as a whole. Major surprise.

I would have to say its a toss up between how good Salmons and Udrih have been.

You suck!...jk.... Why do you want that...IMO he is playing at a high level and doesnt rely on athleticism, so he will be playing like this (or close to this) for a long time IMO.... I know his contract is eh but I rather let him expire and resign him and tutor Hawes...

By the time The Kings are a great team again will Miller matter?
