    This kid is pretty cocky . Hopefully if he gets time he can back it up now that games count.

    I'm sure a lot of the positive reaction he recieves here is because his shot is going in. Once he hits a cold streak will he still be seen as "doing the little things" and a steal ?

    Dekker's first year here (after the back injury) we thought he could break out and be a starter level player ... he had good off ball movement and his defense was solid ; more importantly he was hot from 3 the first coupke of months .... when he hit a cold stretch CF turned on him and declared him a bust .

    My point is this , let's see how we feel about Clark after he stops hitting 50% from 3 lol .

    What made you feel that he's "Cocky"? He seems fine to me in interviews.

    I guess there is a fine line between having confidence in yourself and being cocky ....but I remember Clark talking about the teams that passed on him and that the rockets knew something other teams didn't etc ...

    That kind of talk in general rubs me as a bit cocky .

    Not saying cocky is a bad thing ... if you can back it up .

    Don't get the MCW comment - he is playing great for a guard combo. Maybe once Brandon comes back and shows some light then that may fly. For Clark needs some experience but he is a backup to Ennis. He is intriguing and to get his two way is an accomplishment compared to all the other rookies on the team. If he progresses like he appears he will then he should be on the roster full time later in the year. His break may come sooner if Ennis or Melo gets injured in some way.

    Gary Clark isn't cocky. He's confident. So when you tell him he's the best, it's a compliment.

    He is a defense first player. This should help to keep him in the game, even when his shot isn't falling as long as he doesn't get down on himself. My gut feeling is that, he will keep on defending, whenever he gets a chance.

    give me Clark, CP3, Harden, PJ, Melo, Clint and Jimmy B and let's find a few scrubs who can shoot ... and let's go to war.

    After PJ, he seems like our best 3&D threat.

    Someone needs to let MDA know that he can ball. More minutes needed.

    Can he be a star and lift the Rox though?

    The Rox need stars to step up, role players are fine but clearly not enough.

    I agree. We need to see our big guns step up before we start shuffling roleplayers.

    CP3/Beard/Clint & EG have been extremely mediocre this year.
