Less is more. More or less. But mostly less. Or should that be more?

Anybody else see him in the euroleague semi finals? I can't say he jumped out at me as any kind of player exhibiting toughness. He only had two rebounds, was very flat-footed when it came to help defense, and was generally poor defensively in the first half. He scored 9 on 3 of 4 shooting and made some nice passes. He looks like he can run the floor well, and is capable of moving his feet nicely on defense. He could definitely be worth a look as a bench player this year, but I just don't see him filling Garbajosa's shoes at all.

Childress looked quite good. I really want him.

+ juan to Childress. Good defender, good passer, can get out and run...

Printezis does nothing for me.

He'd be a really nice fit in Toronto, which probably explains the hard ons Raptors fans get when people mention his name.

He's still a very good role player to have on a team nonetheless.

He can create a little bit on top of everything Acie said, which is one thing that was sorely needed most of this season. If they can't keep Marion, they had better get a guy like Childress.

I've always considered Childress to be a solid player.

He's good at alot of things...plus he has great length and athleticism. His shot may not be pretty, but it's effective and he has some range on it. Would definitely love to have him as a 2 guard...

I'd like Childress here but ATL still has his rights so it might be difficult to make an offer high enoughso ATL doesn't match it, but I'd still like him here

I didnt watch the game but I wouldnt judge Prinzetis for one game, just like I would judge Childress for it either. He has looked terrible for most of the season. I like him, but I doubt he would be a game changer for a team like Toronto at all.

atlanta improved without him, not take a big step back like many thought. Case closed. And yes, i prob watched as many hawks games as raptor games this and last year, and feel i have a pretty good gauge for Childress, he is a decent player, nothing to get all excited about tho, esp since he seems to think he is worth a ton more then he is.

Delfino is a top 20 player in the world. When the Raps get him back, they`ll be top three in the league, without a doubt.

Seriously, how do you figure or are you being facetious?

A very streaky, inconsistent often times black hole with a tendancy to gamble and play overly aggresive D, who's had very little success in the world's best league is in the top 20?

I'm joking. Delfino has never met a pick and roll he doesn't want to split.
