everyone except for those with EXTREME bias towards Hedo will agree it's been his lack of production and effect on games


we could get the same production we've got from him with someone making 1/3 or 1/2 of his contract.

I love amir as a player so I selected him, but it is true, Hedo has been a waste of skin these days!

well, obviously it's Hedo. Once he gets his game back on track, teams are going to have a tough time with us, especially in the spring.

I thought most people new what was going to happen with Jose and Hedo on the same team together, so that choice should be voided.

Amir, at least a few of us here new he wqas going to be a very solid piece, I was singing his praises when he was in Detroit.

Derozan was a very solid pick, and is a hard worker. No Surprises there.

Wright is a bum. period. Never liked him as anything more than a bench player at best who can get a bit physical. So many people thought he should start.

Weems was contract filler and is turning into a solid role player. Huge surprise.

Well, he did start in Dallas. Rick Calisle must be a moron.

How many games did Hassan Adams start for us last year?

Weems and Belli shouldn't even see the floor come playoff time. Wright will change a lot of opinions by the end of the year if the big guns on the team step up and this team has any sort of success.

Wright is the ideal role-player on the wing for this team.

Beli will certainly see the floor and Weems will see little floor time imo.

If Belli is in what should be an 8-man rotation come playoff time, something is wrong. If the team doesn't perform for a couple games offensively and they need a offensive sparkplug, that could change.

But with Jack, Hedo, and Wright all seeing big minutes, with Derozan and Jose off the bench, Belli should only see the court if things aren't working.

Weems has surprised me the most this season, he's a smart player, but he's the weakest wing on the team. Shouldn't even sniff the court in the playoffs.

But I'm confident Jay will probably stick with a 10 man rotation in the playoffs for some weird reason I can't comprehend.

Coming from i guy who's never liked Belinelli, not exactly surprising. But he's shooting 39 % from 3, 41 FG%, is one of our best passers and is second on the team in steals. All that and he's a favourite of the GM and the coach.......he'll play.

I'll say 15-20mpg (depending on how Wright/Derozan are playing).

Funny those are Hedo's %'s and everyone wants him to drop dead.

Anyway, he's also woefully inconsitent and after making a 35 year old Jerry Stackhouse look like Dennis Rodman, he should be glued to the bench.

Belinelli has been a big dissapointment. We all knew he was going to be a streaky shooter, but i find he's just a bad shooter. I like that he finishes pretty good around the rim and that he hustles somewhat, but he needs to put in some serious work with Dave Hopla. Honestly, his shot isn't much more reliable than Roko Ukic's

I dunno if its the "biggest" but it is by favourite. Bargs stepping up to be a consistent scorer and much better in all other facets is my favourite surprise. He still isn't perfect but its just one suprise I wasn't banking on this year

Ya except not producing the last 8 games is costing us dearly. You do realize that yes his % might be up, but everything else is way down. THis guy is not producing and its starting to hut us. I actually feel as if we are loosing games beucase of his shitty play.

We would have beaten Cle if he would have put up more them 3 points....and he had more single digit games by the end of november then he had all last year in Orl, and they just keep comming
