Good for Greer, guy was a real Ironman in college, played every minute for Temple. I'm a fan.

Great for lynn. I use to love to watch him at temple i was hoping the sixers would try and sign him, but with our great G M he'll resign matt barnes.

That is great! I hope he sticks and make it in the league. Unfortunately he is a SG that is on the short end of the stick. And he doesnt have the quickness/speed to make up for his shortcoming. Fundamentally sound. And definatetly is an efficient shooter from midrange to the 3. And is money at the FT line. If he were to get the avg amount of FT's needed to be among the league leaders he would be rank in the top 10. He is somewhat of a Tony Delk like player, meaning with Delk you didnt expect a "PG" you expected someone to come in and light it up when given the chance. I really wanna see how this works in Milw.

I went to highschool & college with him. That is my buddy. Havent spoken to him since he went overseas to play ball. If he had 4 more inches he would have been in the league by now. He was better then Flip Murray in HS & college, also in summer leagues as well. :rockon:

what a kick ass name.

adamcz 07-18-2006 08:27 PM

I don't know anything about him. Can he play point guard? Maybe he was signed to be the third string pg and sg?

fatboy11 07-18-2006 08:28 PM

Sounds a lot like the signing of Charlie Bell last summer.

adamcz 07-18-2006 08:43 PM

I'm going to put this in here because it doesn't need its own thread:

Bucks finally had their Villanueva press conference, and introduced him to the local media.



Charlie says he's already been to Milwaukee a few times since the trade, likes it, and is in the process of buying a house there.

He will play have to play PG because of his size. Only 6'1, 6'2 at best. He can run a team and did it at Temple but I dont think his game best suits him being in position to score, come off screens. Run a pick in role. He has a good bballiq/understanding of the game and his role. But his strength is offense not much of a table setter. Not to compare and say he is Mo Williams, but Mo atleast in my eyes really isnt a PG moreso a combo guard. While he can play the position I think he is better as a scorer. Much like Lynn who can knock down jumpshots. Playing behind Charlie and Mo is a good thing. Buycks fans should like Lynn because he doesnt sell you short. Doesnt go out of a team concept at all and if the coach wants him to run the team he will and no be a rebel & attempt to undermine the coach at certain times in a game.

Defensively? Ehh not great, he's average but if Milw runs zones he can do well there coming from Temple Univ. One thing about a Temple player is they can give you some defense. What does Milw guard situation look like right now? Charlie Bell, Mo Williams, Michael Redd and?

I guess David Noel can play some minutes at sg as well as sf, but I don't know how ready he is. I think Magloire will be used to grab a 2/3 player who can handle major minutes (~25).

brwnman 07-18-2006 09:26 PM

Charlie will be back to T.O. after his rookie contract :p... one can dream...

Jerm 07-18-2006 09:28 PM

How can you let your mom call you Lynn?...Well, I don't know much about the guy anyway.

brwnman 07-18-2006 09:32 PM

Lynn is the next AI without the quickness and the craftiness... you guys will be all witnesses...
