    I love watching him on the bench. I think he contributes a lot more to the team than just what he shows on the floor. I think he was a great pickup for this young team. Very glad he's here.

    Garcia is solid vet player with a streaky 3pt shot.

    Garcia is the only player of value we acquired.

    He's shooting 42% from 3, well above his career averages. only question is if its just a hot streak or effect of rockets system and the guards getting the ball to him in the right spots.

    He was a briliant acqusition. He is an able to play effective the SG and Sf. Delfino was wearing down but Garcia is helping out. chandler and Delfino have been needing the rest. Even Harden has been needing rest.

    I hate Garcia's form. It screams "I'm gonna miss when it counts!"

    Batum is underpaid. Not by my standards, NBA performance ones. I don't like to win because other teams' guys are out, but...

    might want to replace the skin on that drum cause it's getting worn out and it's definitely out of tune with reality.

    Garcia is the better pull up shooter. I've noticed del3no needs more time , as opposed to Garcia who pulls up super insanely fast and drills it if he's on. Usually a good indicator of how he will shoot for the rest of the night too.

    Garcia is obviously a better player than Robinson at this point. But that isn't saying much. Heck, only Ohlbrecht is worse than Robinson on our roster, if you don't count Royce White.

    Garcia's best contributes ate what he does off the court. He tells the young guys what they need to hear and works hard in practice to back it up, doesn't complain when he gets no playing time. I like that he and Robinson will cheer on their teammates even when they're getting no minutes. We needed some sort of locker room prescense that we lost when Scola left, and Garcia provides that.

    These Sacramento guys are good for this team, and that trade opened up a floodgate of talented 4's hungry for mintues now that they know the position is up for grabs.

    I expect Garcia will get more minutes as the playoffs approach and in the postseason, as he is a veteran, like Delfino.

    Garcia will always get some minutes due to his consistent play. He doesn't play and be something that he can't be. Basically, he's just a spot up shooter (a very good one), smart great defender and smart w/ shot selection. He doesn't do anything wild and crazy and that's what the coach look for and he will get minutes.

    Garcia deserves a role in our rotation because he fits in our offensive system so well. You have a 3 on 2 fast break with Lin, Harden and Garcia. While Lin and Harden go to the basket, Garcia runs to the corner for and open 3 and will usually knock it down. He is truly a great fit.
