Dont disagree at all...
Williams seems to be hampered by ego according to most sound bytes off the internet.
Flynn has a lot lot lot to prove. I guess the thing about the signing that makes me ponder is (1) he is obviously well behind Brandon Knight and a plethora of swing men for 2 rotation in Detroit - so clearly he better play smart off the bench to hang onto his NBA career..... and (2) he was a top end draft pick so there is some talent.
With Flynn did he just play stupid ? Was he ever in the right system position (Minny and Portland I recall???) ?? I cant say I ever followed Flynn game.
Again disclosure - I admit to respecting Joe D a lot. The man lost Grant Hill - argueably the best player in the NBA at "that time" and then built a consistent deep playoff team for multiple seasons and a championship team out of pieces like Tay/Rip/Chauncey/BenG. That may be a while ago but I never count Detroit out cause of Dumars.
