Default Joey G.

I feel this deserves its own thread...

Joey is not on the bottom of any food chain I can assure you that.

Is it time to give up, or is there something about Joey we just haven't seen it.

Time to move on now. He's had enough opportunities to prove himself.

He's certainly serviceable.

I mean, for an end of the bench guy, his talent level is solid. He can still defend adequately too.

I don't really want to see him get more court time, but I wouldn't want him released.

I would have voted, but there are no good options on the board...

-Joey is still under contract, and we only have 13 bodies, so we can't release him.
-He's probably not serviceable besides as a 12th or 13th man.
-I'm not on the fence because I think he's turd, he's just the only turd we got.
-no comment on option 4. i missed you, but i'm not sure that this qualifies as love... maybe though...

I vote for option 5 - keep him, try to trade him for anything more valuable than a ball rack, or let him go if we still have him around when his contract runs out.

If he vills the void for an undersize 4 I'm happy. He just needs to learn to trust himself and his abilities. He does that and he'll be a solid roation player.

He needs to go. He's only gotten worse since begining his career with the Raps.He doesn't seem to show the comittment to improve and add to his game. He's basically the same player now that he was three years ago without the upside most thaught he had.

i hate Joey Graham.
absolutely hate the guy... but that hate comes from the fact that we passed on Granger for him... so its a bit biased and unfair.
even with this hate, it pains me to say this; i think he is still serviceable.
i dont want him on this team at all, but including him on any future package would help in terms of getting something decent in return.
releasing him for nothing makes no sense, because if anything - he has that NBA body that teams would love.
he has an upside that teams would love and he makes little money. if we are looking to make any future trades, adding Joey to them is a no-brainer.
keep him to trade him; thats what i say.

Keep him until TD. He'll be a very important player by the time that comes along. Don't trade him just yet.

keep him until we have a better option. he has his stretches where he really helps us, and when he's not, just keep him on the bench. simple. no point in releasing someone just for the sake of releasing them.
