He's the third Frenchman we have had on our roster since we came back into the NBA (Diaw, Ajinca and now Batum).

Weird.

Got to be a lock to draft Guerschon Yabusele next year - no?

I like Nicolas Batum! . . . but, can somebody explain to me why he's suddenly being promoted as a SG, I always thought he was a SF?

Hey JD, do you know if we are still having problems editing links? I am afraid to edit the index thread lately.

Is there any distinction between what we hope Batum brings and what we hoped Lance would bring last year?

I was talking about this with a friend. To answer your question - a better attitude. Much less of a risk which ultimately bit us in the ASS last year. Worst that can happen with Batum is he has more injuries that limits his productivity. Lance became useless and historically bad.
