Default Jamario Moon Appreciation Thread.

Okay... i know this will get some flaming but really I dont' understand the hate for the guy. We got him undrafted, are paying him less than a million per year...he rebounds, blocks and steals better than most on the team...improved his shot and gave the odd highlight reel dunk while being a character guy. Sure he falls for pump fakes too much and shoots more than he drives... but for what it's costing us...i think he's a bargain!

It's not his fault he was asked to play as a starter. He should be a 15 min/game backup and likely will be on Miami, but the fact Riley wants to him should tell enough fickle TO fans that he has value.

Dont' hate because we had to use him more than he should be used... that's a BC thing.

Anyways, good luck to him... I enjoyed his time here.

I think the "hate" stems from the fact that he shied away from the hard work.... jackin' up 3s instead of taking it to the rack. Very frustrating guy to watch.

Sure could jump high, though.

hay, for the price he was a good player.

He was a good burst of energy and provided highlights, mostly last year

He was a good guy

Im sure he is extremmely greatful of the raptors. BC and Sam gave him a career in the NBA. This year he was my biggest dissapointment. I had really high hopes on him. I wish him luck because he is obviously a great guy, but he was the most frustrating raptor to watch.

I am sad to see Moon leaving like this ... but he did a wonderful job for somebody coming out of smaller league. Good luck getting a new contract in NBA and all the best in Miami.

For the price of his contract he was a bargain, but I won't miss him. All the best to Moon.

Well, at least Jamario played in front of fans here Miami has the most fair weather, disloyal fans in the NBA, enjoy stinking it up in a half empty arena!

The Miami fans show up for the 4th quarter. Moon got crap here because people expected a quality starting 3 for less than $1 million...a little unrealistic.

Fixed that.

And i don't see where this comment is coming from. Highly unlikely Moon asked to be dealt.

Jamario was a great story last year but fans weren't wrong to expect a little more from him this time around.
The frustrating thing about Jamario is his laziness. I think everyone can see the potential the guy has to be a very effective NBA player if he would just put the work in. If it's not in his make-up to hit the weights and train hard then so be it. He'll never be more than a marginal - small $ - player though.

I wouldn't even say he had that much potential, the guy's just athletic. To me, someone with potential is someone with a nice mix of basketball instinct and athleticism. Jamario Moon's basketball IQ was zero. I never really saw him getting that much better.

That's fair...but again if we had a deeper team and he was a spot minute off the bench guy we'd like him because of the good things he does and the fact we don't NEED him.

I think a lot of the 'hate' was misdirected because we had to rely on him so much.

Hey, I can put up with a player who works hard and doesn't have a head for the game. What I can't deal with is someone who has the ability to jump out of the gym, is given the opportunity to succeed, and fucks with it because he's lazy.

...Vince? Oh, no. Jamario.

Why do we need to appreciate him if he's gone?

We should be learning to appreciate the new dudes...

The problem with Jamario like everyone said is that he came in and expected the job to be his and that he wouldn't have to work for anything, so he slacked. Here's hoping he finds his game in Miami.
