Ah. I'll be more careful next time. Apparently, "player" and "star" mean the same thing in Australia.

How is it that you expect someone to respond to that? :|

I like O'Bryant. :wink: :mrgreen:


I don't. But if he's able to help this team win, I'll find a way to like him. :wink:

I didn't like Matt Barnes for the majority of last season. And, prior to last year, I was continually lobbying for Mickael Pietrus to take the starting SF position.

Needless to say, I'm pretty open about changing my stance on players. If they play well, you gotta give it up to them... and if they suck, you gotta call them on it.

Honestly, I don't have a huge problem with Pietrus playing for us, as he is a good role player. He can make open shots and hit the glass well, and is athletic. He doesn't have basketball smarts but as long as he is not a major part of crunch time, it doesn't matter. Baron will get the most touches in the later parts of the 4th quarter anyway.

I don't like Pietrus because he doesn't stay outta the way. He's one of the few players that can hurt you, as well as help you. Some players, like Harrington, can help... but when they're off, they don't hurt you. Pietrus commits dumb fouls, travels ALL THE TIME, misses all his free throws, and commits juvenile turnovers (like throwing the ball away or getting picked due to shaky handles).

When MP is off, he's better left on the bench because he'll actually HURT you in the long run. You can say the same (to a lesser degree) about Matt Barnes, who will launch arrant shots all night. Those two need to be kept in check.

So, basically, he still plays like a rookie...

He still plays like he's in middle school. Like he's a 6'6", athletically gifted middle school student.
