    Jones ain't polarizing. About everyone has given up on him. And there are no TOFs that I am aware of.

    Josh Smith would probably be the most polarizing.

    The answer is easily Terrence Jones. Some moments in the playoffs he made me realized how good he is and how valuable to the team he can be, but then other (a lot)moments I would forget that he's on the court...


    It's not necessarily that he would have turnover after turnover or clank jumper after jumper, but it's that he didn't really show up when we needed him to.

    I want to keep Jones(even over Smith) but there's times I would be ok with trading him. I just don't know what we should do with him.

    What is your point, OP? Dmo for example has hundreds of lovers,
    ratio of his fans 100:1 hater

    Jones belongs on that list, regardless. Getr it done.

    While T-Jones is close, I'd have to say Josh. It's those games when he's forcing his shot. Standing behind the arc the whole game, jacking threes, bricking them, etc. The turning the ball over and not getting back on defense thing really pisses me off. Very frustrating at times..

    I went Brewer....

    there are times he's flyin around on defense, pushin the tempo on offense...

    and then times I forgot he was even on the court... til he gets called for some unnecessary foul....

    Speak for yourself, I'm not giving up on a guy who played half a season after a career threatening nerve injury. He is dumb but belongs in the league. consistency is an issue but he is not too bad.

    This forum overreacts to everything, a 3rd year player who can give you 12 and 8 has a spot on even good teams

    If Jones is not in the poll I do not know what you were thinking. I have those brain freezes often. It happens.

    There are more posts asking for an upgrade to the PF position i.e. LMA, Millsap, Love, etc. to go with his "hundred of lovers" posts.


    Hundreds of lovers? Really?

    I don't totally disagree but the point of the whole thread is the general feel of the forum. Not your personal thoughts or if you are giving up on him or not.

    I have gone through all of those Dmo Threads.... believe me...

    Those are either asking him to start or saying he has little trade value thus asking him to stay

    He is done well but it is just 60 games of one season.

    You can say all of our PF's are polarizing..

    Jones
    TJ has skills but he doesnt have the hunger to go get it, he just disappears most of the time but shows flashes of quality consistently enough. He quietly gets his stats. People will either point to his disappearances in game and want him gone, or point to his stats and want him to stay.

    Definitely the most polarising at the moment, but not on the list

    Smith
    Smoove is either incredible or incredibly bad, i've never seen such bipolarity in a players performance before. When he is on the court, strap yourself in.. Whether it's heaven or hell, you are going for a ride

    DMo
    DMo is 7 ft but plays like he is 6'9, can't rebound and still has a lot to learn on defense. But his value to this team is as someone who can create his own shot reliably, his post game was unstoppable at times and he has improved remarkably each season to the point where he has overtaken TJ IMO.

    The most polarising: TJ
    The most polarising on the list though: Smoove

    Further emphazing my point, good Tj and he is the starter for 10 years, bad TJ and it is D-Mo is the best. This has divided the GARM for the last two years.

    None of the players are polarizing. However, many of our fans are polarizing.
