Play my boy Mardy Collins!
 
I'm a Temple homer, so this could be a little biased, but the guy is a player.

NBA comparison: Aaron McKie (ironically also from Temple)

6'5", ran the PG position full-time in 4 years at Temple, coached by John Chaney, and one of the most underrated defenders out. Guy can guard 3 positions (pg, sg, sf). There used to be a youtube mix about 3 mins long of his defensive highlights with NY but can't find it now. Just these couple...

Don't think he ever got his shot in NY because they were guard heavy (Robinson, Marbury, Roberson, Duhon, Crawford)

If he can defend he'll be on the court by next week.

Had this of been last year, he'd be starting. But now, there's so much competition he might not even see the court. Baron Davis and Mike Taylor are sure to get the majority of the minutes, and Jason Hart hasn't complained yet, but his pt hasn't been very good, and I can't see Collins playing ahead of Hart.

I liked Collins coming out of Temple, and I still do like him, but barring injury, he might not get much burn.

He can play SG also, can't he?

I watched a lot of NY games and IMO he's a very underrated defender. He needs more PT, hopefully he'll get some with the LAC.

Yeah he can, he can also play the PG and SF spots as well. And defend those position too.

I liked Collins even in NY. He is big and quick enough to defend many types of pg's. He has adecent shot. Nice court awareness. Biggest thing I like about him is his defense. He is a great backup point. Even though the Clipps are struggling, there is some light in Collins and Gordon at least

I'm a Knick fan visiting your forum. I liked Mardy when he was on the Knicks. We didn't play him much, why? I don't know why they did it. Walt Frazier offered the Knicks orginization to work with Mardy and they never took him up on it. Their loss. I wish Mardy the best and hope you guys enjoy watching him.
