Sorry Anthony Parker....I'm Pissed.....JOHN SALMONS!

Bryan Colangelo,

Are you f-ing kidding me? I've loved the fact B-CO rode into town, scouted out our needs and started dropping pieces into place. Loved it. BUT THIS!?

Not making Mike James an offer or even sounding interested in a guy who brings energy, runs, shots 44% from the three, drops 21 a game and 6 assists....seems odd. Maybe that guy wants too much and you are thinking 'future'. Hey....everyone can understand that.

But then taking that same money and signing JOHN SALMONS to a 5 year, 23 million dollar deal, plus a second round draft pick....and cash!! This is a 27 year old who in his 5th year in the league just managed 7.5 points a game over 25 minutes shooting 42%...and he can't shoot threes (29.9%).

Run and gun eh? What is this new style? I'm starting to miss last year's style already, where we routinely jacked up 42 three pointers a game. Ah the good old run, dribble around and jack 29 foot three's....the good old days.

Well if nobody can drop three's what happens when the entire defence collapses??
Prediction: Mo Pete will be averaging 12 three point attempts per game. It's as simple as that. If your fantasy league gives points for three's then get Mo Pete.

John a hoof to the balls.

I love his versitility. Sure his outside shot is to be desired but he can still get betterin my opinion. He's athletic, great ball handling skills for someone who's 6'6 and will grab some boards which was desparately needed from our guards last season.

I like the pick-up and I think he'll be a solid contributer coming off the bench for us.
