Rip Hamilton looks back to the day he was drafted by The Washington Wizards.

    i seriously think that rip should not be traded. Rip always leads the team in points, he always shows up to play in the playoffs when some of the other guys seem lost. his unique way of moving without the ball makes it difficult for many to stop him because they get tired of running in circles

  2. fhcrebound37

    I agree to a point. he is probably one of the most suscessfull and skilled shooting guards in the league. he is consistant for almost 20 a night. I think i would only trade Rip if we could get someone with more scoring ability and who could mesh with the rest of the team.

    *and Nat, was mentioned in Slam Mag this month in the “trashtalk” section.

    i hear on the radio hawks and pistons comming pretty close for a sign and trade with josh smith and gayshaun and thinkin bout using mid level for biedrins since the warriors cant re sing him cuz they jus signed turiaf. little tweak familiar faces more athleticism and more blocked shots and rebounds with a very solid bench incliding future allstar stuckey. i like it

    but like i said who know its is dumars not cuban.

    i’m not worried about biedrins all i want is j smith… biedrins would be a big help also i suppose but i mostly care about getting smith, dudes a freak… i don’t understand why the warriors would turn down a trade for chauncey and then just let him walk though???

    yea for cuban… his mavs are the true model of success in this league!

  6. blaze5611

    when he said that about cuban i think he was sayin that he isn’t afraid to make changes… i personally think cubans a d bag

    Thanks Fhcrebound37, I just got mine in the mail today. What a nice surprise.

    I personally empathize with Cuban’s annoying nature. I’d probably be twice as obnoxious of a fan if I owned my favorite team. He has every right to be the ‘overly-involved’ owner that he is. As for his team’s success, it’s not as high as Joe D’s team, so I’m not sure why anyone would lament the notion of Joe not being enough like Mark.
    I agree that Rip is a very solid player and his unique style makes him tougher to gaurd than the more predictable 2 gaurds in the league. The only way to throw him of his game is to exceed his own level of hard work/physical conditioning, and there aren’t many 2 gaurds who can match it, let alone exceed it.
