After reading up a big on Calderon I'd give Dumars a positive on this deal. First one he's hit on in a while too (probably since the Rasheed trade). If he amnesty's Villanueva this offseason that will give them $30 million to spend. Although last time Dumars had that kind of money he fucked it up with Gordon and Villanueva signings. And the free agent class is kinda weak for guards and 3's. Unless he wants to dish out for Mayo and Tony Allen. Probably the best two options for them for what they got.
I really don't see how they could finish 9th going forward. whether you like it not, rudy is outstanding, lowry is one of the more versatile point guards in the league, demar is still growing, and val, like ross, has huge potential.
What about Rudy is outstanding? Literally name anything that you think he`s outstanding at because there really is nothing. He isn`t even good at anything except for putting up a third option amount of points on first option/second option shot attempts.
"Kobe first injured this shoulder in the preseason, according to sources. Has been playing w/ it all year. It just got worse last night"
After suffering the injury, he simply started shooting with his left hand rather than leaving the game.
