He was one of the few guys playing hard. And playing too hard. Like niko said, he throws his body around even when up by 20...he was throwing his body around the night before, against the Knicks, down by 35.
He's still an all-star caliber player. One of the best SF's in the league. But the Nets aren't close, so if they're gonna give up a top 10 pick they should have gone after someone else or they should have offered the Rockets pick. I'm sure the Blazers would have taken that.
But I still wanna hear about Williams wanting the Wallace trade.
