    I am STILL pissed off about this, KJ better become something special, because Canaan was better than Terry or Prig for this team - he was great earlier in the year starting, just needed to get his rhythm back.

    Elbow? He doesn't need to shoot. He just needs to use his athleticism and quickness to harass the hell out of Curry all night.

    I agree with that. Best shooter on the roster at the time of the trade and still a better shooter than anybody we can put out there. We need his floor spacing desperately right now. And keeping him would have not prevented us from still getting Pablo.



    McHale didn't want to play Troy Daniels nor Canaan. And to that I say.....:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:


    There's no way McHale can claim objectivity here. We could use both those little guys right now....big time.

    Canaan could possibly be helpful at this point but KJ has the higher ceiling by a good margin in my opinion. I liked that deal and I imagine we will get KJ on a good contract.

    Canaan was like Steve Francis without the comparable size and athleticism. He sucked.

    I think It was Morey's plan to just let KJ sit this season to drive his value down, and then use him next year as a Brewer replacement.

    In a year or two everyone will forget who Canaan is. KJ has a bright future.
