As we all look at the possibility of trading DJ away because of his freethrows, let me echo Lisa Leslie the other day..."KEEP DJ, because athletic 7 footers do NOT grow on trees!"
But even more importantly, I think having DJ grow in his prime years with a different coach (provided vinny is out of course) would allow him to grow more.
I hear great things about Stan Van Gundy and his player development..also, perhaps a bid out there to Phil Jackson also...what the Hell.. But I see the coach FIRST, then I see DJ and how he would grow with them.
As for Bledsoe/DJ for Eric Gordon/lopez....I say NO! Too little playing time, and if we look at our experience with Chauncey and Grant hill...Medics aren't to be trusted in their evaluations and timetables for ankle and knee issues.I think Gordon too risky..Bledsoe and DJ have a GREAT combined playing time...errr.well..not exactly playing time under vinny...but not too injury plagued in their careers...
Okay..I may be a bit of a dunk lover...but who isn't! DJ brings a lot to the table
