Will Solomon sucks.
I don't think I've seen a thread on him yet. So I just wanted to let my feelings known about him.


The guy has no clue on how to run a team. He's got some speed, but not the smarts. So he rushes the ball up to the perimeter and he's fucking lost and clueless. He does a little shimmy and shake and chucks the ball. He's fucking worst than Mike James.

That might be a bit tough but I was at the t-wolves game and wasn't impressed either to say the least. Although I was impressed after the first couple of games with him. Like you pointed out this might be a case of Mike James syndrome. Solomon has a couple of good pre-season games and then he starts trying to take over every game.

Mike James actually made his shots and averaged 20 a game and 6 assists. Loved that guy.
Don't hurt me.

Mike made his shots while freezing the entire offensive set and turning the entire Raptors system into the "watch Mike James dribble for 15 seconds, lose the ball, recover the ball, dribble around some more and hurl up an absurd 35 foot three ball because defenders gave up trying to guard him on the perimeter after they'd realize that the Raptors would lose by 234892 points anyway" show.

I'd definitely pay max contract for a potent scorer like that! Oh wait... He's like a third stringer for the Hornets now.

jeffb 10-20-2008 11:45 PM

He seems to be a decent shooter but other then that this guy turns the ball over wayyyyy too much and is now shot happy.I'm not impressed at all!Not only that Ukic doesn't give me much confidence either.I see potential that may take a year or two to start showing.If Jose goes down w/injury the Raps are in huge trouble.I think we would see 20TO games often!

CB4 10-21-2008 12:07 AM

Solomon doesn't look so great. He's an ok shooter but after that... Anyway the raptors need calderon to stay healthy or else they are screwed

FaLCo 10-21-2008 12:27 AM

What pisses me off the most is how many times he picks up his dribble, waits two seconds and tries to find a man to pass to so that he can get the ball returned to and start dribbling again...

I am always amazed at how quick the Raptor Fan Base is to slap LABELS on players. I have yet to hear Will Solomon sing I Believe I can Fly ....so I have no Idea if he is anything like Mike James and I sure hope he is NOTHING LIKE R.Kellly.

Albeit he's trigger happy like Mike James was during his tenure here in Toronto, but there could be worse options right now than Solomon. I'm sure Sam will (and has already) sit him down and remind him of his role on this team and come regular season you'll see a more composed Will Solomon. :)

Claudius 10-21-2008 08:46 AM

I think Solomon said it best in regards to his transition: in Europe he was a scorer, here he has to do something else.

If he fails in this transition, then well, he fails. I think he'll eventually make it b/c his NBA career could be on the line.

I'm not sure whether it's their fault, or Sam's, but it should be pretty clear that with the second unit, the first option is always bargnani and the second option is Kapono. Both him and ukic first look for their option. Maybe it's because they're still trying to prove themselves, after all - it's not set in stone who will be the main backup yet.

I second this one. He's getting his feet wet however, and he's can defend. I wish he'd keep that dribble alive a bit more though.

FaLCo 10-21-2008 05:53 PM

Yeah - it just stagnates an already clueless bench offense.

you dont know me 11-18-2008 09:28 PM

lemme just reiterate this: WILL FUCKING SOLOMON SUCKS!!!

i swear i hate this fucking guy!
hate him to death!
i fucking hate you solomon!
fuck you!

ClingRap 11-18-2008 09:32 PM

ummm who's better? i mean solomon/ukic, they're basically going to turn the ball over a lot because they've yet to learn to deal with the pressure. as a coach, smitch has the unenviable task of having to make sure his guys remain confident. benching a guy after a tough performance is tricky.

CB4 11-18-2008 09:39 PM

solomon isnt NBA calaber.

jeffb 11-18-2008 09:45 PM

Solomon is a 3rd string SG! He's just not a PG at all.I've said it before and i'll say it again.Sign Mighty Mouse and trade for a true SF that can play.

jeffb 11-18-2008 09:47 PM

Worst part is, neither is Ukic.Nowhere near an NBA caliber PG! First off he can't shoot the ball, and when he gets crowded it's all over.

Claudius 11-18-2008 10:09 PM

Jeff, I agree that Ukic is not right now NBA ready to play. But he runs the offensive very well when he gets the PT. I know I'm croatian and it sounds like I'm defending him b/c he is too but I've seen enough PG's to know when a guy is good enough.

Once Ukic is inserted he plays poorly, he gets nervous. Ask any PG and what the main thing they have to be is to be calm. Ukic still gets nervous and even excited and makes dumb mistakes b/c of that. But offensively, he reminds me of Calderon in regards to setting up the offense really well. He's always looking to make the best pass. To get him better he NEEDS to play. Common sense.

However, Solomon needs to play ahead of him still. He is NBA calibre. What he needs to do is do what Ukic does and that is look to run the offense ahead of his own personal numbers. He's not talented enough offensively.

you dont know me 11-18-2008 10:10 PM

solomon keeps saying in europe a pg was different whereas he was expected to score more. alright, i get that shit. and apparently he understands that A PG IN THE NBA IS DIFFERENT... then what the hell!!!! dont fucking keep chucking then. WE DONT NEED YOU TO SCORE!! just TRRRRRRRRRRRRRYYYY to run a team. get that ball moving... AND SAFELY!!!

and you're D. shit, develop one!
