I gave him a "C", which might not be fair considering he wasn't used or untilized properly until the playoffs. If he can be used like he was in the playoffs for next season then I welcome Jason back with open arms, but if we find him not being utilized accordingly, then I'd like to see him dealt elsewhere this summer if we can.

C-, during the season, A in the playoffs for stepping up when he didnt have any rythm from the season. B for me.

He was being followed to the corners and was never left alone because let's face it - we've got no Shaq or Wade and he often seemed hesitant to shoot. He also didn't receive the minutes I'm sure they initially thought he would because of the emergence of Moon, but he played well when it counted and I like that.

C

7 points a game? LAME! He got chances, not like the playoffs but he had a shot. How much do you expect to play when you're one dimensional? He can be a starter if we can get some more help, but as is, sam made the right decision

Yup, B - underused. But with room for improvement.

C for reg. season, A for playoffs, B- overall.

Even though we love our shooters, he's not a great fit in Sam's system. No transition shots and no plays to set him up.

A

Yeah Yeah I know what you guys are thinking right now "What the fuck's this guy talking about?"

Well he was certainly an A in the playoffs, no doubt. And since he was in fact, under-used, he could've been better to get a solid A if he was used a little more than he was this season. And I am talking most about the playoffs.

That, and the fact that I haven't graded one player an A yet so I though I would switch it up a little.

I gave him a C. He was average in the minutes he was given. He is what he is.

On a sidenote I have realized that I've been giving out C's to basically the entire team. Shows what I thought about them.

C in regular season, A when it mattered.

Sams a douche for not using him during the season.
