    Let's be honest, Nachbar is not looking good.

    I like his hustle, but his outside shot just doesn't seem to want to fall so far. After a couple of years of this, it might be fair to start asking if it might be time to go another direction.

    I hear that Rashard Wiggins is very interested in the Rockets, but would we have any interest in him? We all know about his past, but if he has put it all behind him do you think he is worth the gamble? Is the upside worth the risk with a guy like that, or is he a time bomb waiting to go off?

    Perhaps most importantly....

    Could Wiggins get along with Yao Ming and T-Mac?

    I'm curious to learn what our Chinese fans think about him. My understanding is that he is especially well liked in China because of his diplomatic experiences with former President Jimmy Carter.

    Look Hank Hill, just leave Nachbar alone. Give him a chance. We have only been through one preseason game and now you want to trade him? Give me a break...

    On the one hand this is funny. But on the other hand, it's additional clutter and will be really confusing to some people. I guess I should make the best of it until it gets locked.

    I'd actually prefer this guy:

    I don't care if his name is actually Wiggum. It's close enough.

    I watch a lot of basketball and know something about most of the obscure players that drift in and out of the league...but I have no idea who Rashard Wiggins is.

    He played in the Philippine league and was MVP over there. He once played on the same team with thacabbage. Wiggins is only 5'2, but he can dunk, and he played power forward over there.

    lock this crap.

    im so sick of trolls starting threads about Nachbar. Quit it. Give the guy some time to develop. Give him a full year of 10-15minutes per night and then go from there...jesus, HANK HILL.:confused:

    Those of you who are down on Boki must not be watching the same games that I am. He hustles on defense, creating havoc, getting steals, blocking shots, and taking fouls. He isn't afraid to challenge anyone, as he proved in the playoffs last year, and he knows how to get to the rack. With some consistent playing time, he will develop into (at least) a decent backup SF and has the potential to be much better.

    If he doesn't show something during the first half of the year, I might change my mind, but Boki has impressed me with his hustle, his commitment to defense, and his ability to take it to the hole. For crying out loud, he is not even a starter and as such we cannot really expect that much out of him, especially given his contract.
