    Let's be real.

    He sucks and hopefully Kostas and Nick are the ones getting the bulk of the minutes.

    You overestimate yourself, generally.
    Stop posting.

    FG doesn't really help or hurt us much. Honestly though even 40ish on three for him is a stretch. Try .361 career and .358 last year. The league average for SG's is 35% at 3, so he is a very slightly above avg. 3pt shooter (and a slightly below avg. 2pt shooter).
    Low risk deal though. I bet at most 15 minutes per game this year if there are no injuries at the position.

    He played outstanding preseason but may have been the biggest disappointment during the regular season. Hopefully he is well now.

    WTF is that supposed to mean? I'm not from MN and he's been calling me Minnesota for no reason. So I just pointed that out. How is that any of your business?

    Maybe you are fine with people calling you CMonkey. But not me. So deal with it.

    Garcia will play about the same as last year, and Houston still needs a Second Creator when Harden is on the bench to get these guys the ball in the right spots

    I tried telling people that Garcis was no better than Tyler Honeycutt. I watched a lot of Kings games when Garcia was that team, and he's just an average role player at best.

    You guys were pretty much fooled by his contract postseason against the Thunder.

    Glad to have Garcia back. We could use a vet for some of these youngsters. Would be even better if he can contribute a bit for us on the court, as well.

    Is Honeycutt even on a roster?:confused: Having an average role player on vet. minimum is not a bad deal, I don't know what you're harping about.

    ^^^^^Thomas Robinson was better than all of the players the Rockets traded for in that Kings deal by far. Rockets could have signed a better player than Garcia for the same amount of money. I bet even Alonzo Gee can compete with Garcia for playing time .

    Not even gonna lie. This was a nice shot. This shot probably gave him his one year deal.

    Gee can't shoot. Can't shoot. Can't shoot. Can't shoot.

    And Honeycutt??? He's not an NBA player. Not even good enough to make a roster. And he can't shoot either. Can't shoot. Can't shoot. Can't shoot.

    Garcia was dinged last year. That explains his poor season. He'll snap back this year if he stays healthy and be great off the bench for us.
