Flip Murray’s shooting touch is very, very, very suspect.

This from A. Sherrod Blakely, doesn’t sound promising.

“After watching the guys do some 5-on-5 work this morning, I don’t know what to make of Flip Murray.

I like his game, I really do.But it seems this guy is going to be one of those players that, you’re never really going to know what to expect from him.

He’s a great penetrator, but his shooting touch is very, very – and I mean very – suspect. It’s not that he can’t make shots. In fact, he’s one of the better players out there that can score in bunches, quickly. But when he starts missing, yeah, they come in bunches, too.”Via MLive

I hope Murray is just a bit rusty from the summer but I am not very fond of players that are hot and cold. I like to know what to expect from a player when he’s on the floor. I can’t say that I have seen Flip play much when he was with Seattle. But I do remember some reagular season games with the Cavs in which he was on fire, but he had a pretty mediocre playoff showing against the Piston in the second round of the playoffs last season. I would like to hear from some Sonics fans on what we should expect from Flip. Maybe Supersonicsoul can fill us in.

    Yes Flip can get very cold. But for the most part he’s been money that is what has keep him in the league. He reminds me alof of the “Microwave”.

    sorry nique, no disrespect, but the microwave comparison is about as far off as you can get. That is way too much credit for a guy who has bounced around and still hasn’t shown the type of player he can be in this league. You knew what you were gonna get from Vinnie. The jury is still out on flip, but I think the verdict is guilty. I hope he proves me wrong.

    I’m going to have to agree with Junior on this one.

    We shall see. Can’t wait for the first preseason game :-).
