Default Will Solomon

Now, I'm not expecting anyone to really say anything in response to this thread but just talking with my brother, I thought I'd post how I feel.

I initially disliked Solomon. I didn't like his game, didn't like how he fit in with the team; just plain detested him.

Then, this trade goes down and the writing becomes pretty obvious; Will thanks but no thanks. And it really hit me, that basically, that's it. His last shot at the NBA was pretty unsuccessful. He spent so many years in Europe being THE guy that he just couldn't make the adjustment. He's not a BAD player, but he's not an NBA player and I think this trade makes it obvious for him.

So I just want to say, Will, you gave it your best shot and I admire you for it. Go back to Europe and make some mone and just have fun again, because it's obvious that you haven't had fun in a while.

yeah, the guy simply sucks
in a team with 3 quality bigs of cb4, bargs, and JO, the guy still struggled
he couldn't even bring the ball up the court and just pass it to them by just dumping it in the post
he had to go and jack it up for bricks
we got banks now so i'm assuming he'll never see the court again
hopefully his salary can be used with marion's next year to get some good wing help

I think the original meaning of my post was lost save for funkie/jackson understanding my meaning. This isn't meant to bash him.

He never fit in, I'm sure some of you high school kids could understand that.

Parker was good and he came from the same team. BC tried to push his luck.

I'd like to focus on buying out Banks instead of Solomon.

The thing with Will is..... jeez.... so much like Moon... so much God-given athleticism... and yet so clueless.

If both of these guys were 21 years old and just fresh out of college (or even HS) I could somewhat understand their stone-headed play.... but to be playing this way and making these mistakes at 27... after they've both struggled so long to "make it"....

... it's just disappointing to think that the dream could end for them after this year. I guess that Moon will still have a good shot... but yeah, Will is likely done.

The only team that may come calling right now is ORL since they're in DESPERATE need of PG help.
