Azubuike is Horrible
 
The good news is that they resigned him relatively cheap. The biggest knock on him coming out of Kentucky was that he doesn't pass the ball much and so far this season, he has proved that report right. He just doesn't pass the ball. He's becoming a Mikael Pietrus type player. Last night, against the Blazers, he made two bonehead plays towards the end that almost cost them the game. Both of them when he was inbounding the ball. He clearly doesn't know how to pass the ball. He's not a good 3 point shooter, yet he keeps chucking them up while shotting a measely 25%.

i agree that his 3pt shooting is horrible he should stop taking those shots hes more of a mid range slasher type not as good as maggette but pretty good hes a good defensive player which the warriors need and hes can come off the bench orr start when needed like for injury so i dont think hes horrible but he should stop taking so many 3's

errr....no....Azabuike is great, he plays hard every game, altho sometimes he misses shots because hes not a great shooter, but he always hussle and play defense and grab rebounds when they needed.

How about discussing CJ Watson? i think hes the worst player in the league. Heck, imma make a new topic for him, cant stand his ugly face and horrible skill and effort. :mad:

I'll give you the ugly face but he plays really consistent. he has a good jumpshot and hustles out there. Explain why you hate him.

I hate Watson b/c he simply plays too much, I wouldnt mind if he's a 10min backup. I really think he doesnt deserve 30+ minutes even when Ellis is injured.

He cant play any def, he can shoot but only make open shots, he definitely cant pass as well as any other PG, and its most frustrating when he turn the ball over in close games (inbound violations, he had like 3 of those this year,I never seen anyone else in NBA done it before). I know his stats arent bad, but it really annoys me to actually watch him play. He can hussle and try to steal alot, but thats actually his weakness, giving open baskets whenever attempt a steal. Great defenders do try to steal but they dont give away easy layups. Also, he usually wastes a well 15 to 20 seconds off the shot clock when he brings the ball up court and do nothing with it. Nelson and Williams are much better PGs, altho their offense isnt so good, but at least they know what theyre doing. Even Belinelli can pass and handle better than Watson, and Belinelli does play starting PG last few games in place of Watson and im glad that he does so.

As a Great Britain fan i hope Azubuike get his passport sorted out in time for Eurobasket 2009. This season his stats look decent. What position has he been playing? Discussing him on other forums we have been saying he will play SG with Gordon at the point. Will this suit him for 3 point shooting as the arc is smaller in europe?

Well Azubuike usually plays the SG or SF position... more the SF postition. He's a decent 3 point shooter but don't expect him to be lights out.

Re: Azubuike is Horrible
 
I thought so & he'd probably play SG for GB. What's his perimeter D like? GB suffer a little bit from this especialy on the pick & roll. I'm sure he has the talent to be a 45% 3 point shooter on a european court, and if all goes well & commits to programme he can only benefit himself, GB, & the Warriors in future seasons.

Are there rumours that Azubuike is going to Britian? Explain...


And I'd say that his defense is average... if Jackson wasn't on the team he'd probably be gaurding the best player on the opposing team.

Yes we tried to get his Passport last year but the home office refused. British basketball are appealing as he was born in London, as it it seemed very unfair.

So is there a good chance that he's heading overseas?
