But as a hoop fan it is disheartening. JJ may be the one missing player keeping this Suns team from an NBA title.
Plus, Atlanta is going nowhere fast. Josh Childress, Salim Stoudamire, Marvin Williams and Speedy Claxton are duds. Josh Smith still doesn't have a jumper. Sheldon Williams is still a rookie. This isn't the market JJ should have went to. Go to New York, where you can lose and still make front page news.
Childress isn't a dud, he's probably just best suited as the first swingman off the bench. Sure, that's not what they drafted him to be, but it doesn't make him a dud. Claxton's another story. Awful.
