    Re: Adam Haluska with the Mavericks

    I'll never understand what New Orleans was dreaming about when they selected him like 43rd overall in the draft. You can get decent value with that pick, yet they chose to waste it on a guy who clearly doesn't have NBA ability.

    I always thought Adam had plenty of NBA ability. He could shoot the 3, and could drive to the hoop with ease. I'm not sure about his defense, but no one plays defense in the NBA.

    No where strong enough.

    Re: Adam Haluska with the Mavericks

    He was tall enough, athletic enough and could shoot pretty well. I honestly thought he had a chance of sticking.

    Everything here is correct except it was not noted he is inconsistent. I recall many games when he was at Iowa he'd be a world beater. But then there were plenty he would completely disappear.

    Wow...you should try watching some NBA games. Particularly any of the good teams (Lakers, Celtics, Magic, Dallas, Spurs, etc). They definitely play defense and if you can't see it, you don't understand basketball.

    doesn't matter what you say. people that don't watch nba will always say they don't play defense. but if they would just watch they would see there is plenty of defense going on.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    Seems like if Ryan Bowen could stick, its possible for most any good college player to make it in the league.
