    Not too bad, but injuries have been a big part in his short career too.

    I gotta say, Stone always surprises me. This isn’t who I expected or wanted, but I don’t mind it, either,

    We want one of those top 4 picks. I’m always excited when the Rockets play because I want them to lose that game too! Lol

    I hope he’s number 48, as in the M48, as in the M48 Patton TANK!

    But seriously...

    it’s a good signing in that he fills a need. He has potential, but don’t let the highlights in that 45 point game fool you. That happened over a year ago. He’s not nearly as good as he looked in that game, but the skills he flashed are real. He is not what I would consider to be a good overall shooter, but he can shoot a little for a big man, and the potential is there. I like the signing, just don’t get your hopes up too much based on that one game. It’s a bit of a tease!

    Yeah I posted his best highlight video, but he looks like a big stiff and plodding center with average athleticism. Seems fairly skilled for his size, but I have my doubts that he can do any of the things in that video consistently against NBA level competition. I’m not expecting much. Hopefully he spends all of his time with the Vipers. He’d be more help for them. KJ won’t have to play center at 6’6.

    This is not the move to save our season or provide us with assets to improve our future prospective. Stone is not making the right moves right now. BKN trade was and still is a big question mark and then we played our most current tradable assets (Tucker, Gordon, Dipo) and got them injured before we could move them and potentially deflated their trade value.

    The guy is terrible, but he's young and tall so why not? This team is looking to tank anyway.

    “Justin Patton”

    Best move since Raid Spawlling ... :confused:


    Edit: I just read Ray Spaulding had an Achilles injury and got waived. Didn’t mean to sound like a prick and kick a man when he’s down! I wish him good fortune and a speedy recovery! Hopefully he gets another shot a playing in the NBA!

    Low risk, moderate reward move if he can find enough health to compete for Wood's backup next season. He's only 23 and has size, so why not? Maybe he can at least block out and grab a few boards for 15 minutes a game.

    ROX need to start triple checking achilles tendons.

    this guy is like a bigger C Wood. What is there to lose? Play him! Bring up KPJ, Armoni and KJ!!!
