Now dont get my input wrong, I actually would love for him to be moved, because I feel that his production may increase.
Im thinking more of a fresh start and a different group of players to work with.
This of course would be assuming that he would not find it too distressing to leave his beloved Chicago which he holds kind sentiments for.
In the end, all that matters is that the dude can be a better ball player than he currently is, and it sucks to watch him not elevate.
I agree with that, because Kirk is a better player than almost anyone here sees. Many players around the NBA would want to play with Kirk or admire his game, I remember Steve Nash even saying he sees a lot of himself in Kirk the way he keeps his dribble alive doesn't give it up unless someone gets open. People also used to compare him to John Stockton and Gary Payton.
Also throw a big man there with Kirk and his production would go through the roof. With a 20/10 big man, I think Kirk could average something like...
16-20 pts, 7-10 ast, 4 reb, 2 stl, 2 to
Very solid numbers.
