I thought we got value from Troy Murphy...Minus his issues with his plantar fascia.
didnt mind murph. the guy was a solid rebounder and could get you some points
gil/jrich/murph was one hell of a draft.
still disappointed that those teams weren't too competitive. seem like the talent was there and somehow the team still ended up with 20+ wins
seem like larry hughes shot got worse every yr. he actually fixed it that one yr with the wiz playing with MJ
not mad at dunleavy. looking back, that draft was full of busts. one of the last guy remaining from that yr that's still playing.
just checked, him ,nene still playing
and matt barnes, scola
Hughes' shot did get worse every year...His skills diminished. I was only excited about him because he played along side AI in Philly
The talent may have been there to be competitive, but look at the coaches that came through during their first couple of years: Dave Cowens, Brian Winters, Eric Musselman, Mike Montgomery.
Granted Musselman and Montgomery brought the team up to 30+ wins..But I don't think the roster was capable enough to focus up and be a successful team.
Man, those were some tough years...but always tuned in to see J-Rich play and when Arenas started playing and made a name for himself...Man, I was so happy lol.
And with the news of Dunleavy...I wouldn't mind it. I really don't understand the hate for him at times. Yeah, he was drafted at #3 and wasn't franchise player that turned the organization around...But you can't blame him for that. The front office was terrible and Cohen didn't care about winning.
Dunleavy made a pretty good career for himself and was a decent role player...I wouldn't mind him in a back-up role. Waive McAdoo he's a waste.
