Jaric is a good reserve combo guard, who can shoot and run a half court set.

But he can't really push the ball.

He would be a nice backup for the Hawks, alongside Claxton. But the judge won't allow 5 year contracts to be absorbed, so that is that.

I wouldnt mind Jaric in Philly. Big PG that can allow AI back to play at SG. Only thing is that his contract is not very appealing.

I'd like to have him in Miami to come off the bench replacing Payton because we could really use him with his size, probaly would never happen though.

He is being wildly overpaid. And he is in a bad system for his talents.

36/6= 6 Million
16/4= 4 Million

So what, who are you gonna get for 2 million dollars? You can't even get a MLE player for that amount.

I personally like Jaric b/c he can play point and guard 2's.

The difference is more than just money saved. If a player is $2 million per year cheaper, he's a lot more movable. Think about it. Would the Wolves still have...I dunno...Troy Hudson if he started out at $3 million instead of $5 million? I don't think they would. They would have found a team willing to take a risk on him because he was cheap.

People are just hating on Jaric because it's the going way of life on ISH. ISH is like that; populated by bandwagoners who can hardly form opinions of their own.

he comes up with a lot steals

Because he reaches too much. Lots of steals doesn't necessarily equal good defense.

And he blows ass in close games. The Clippers had some stupid amount of losses in 04-05 within 3-4 points (I could look it up, but I can't be bothered. I know it was heaps.) Why? Because Marko, the starting PG, didn't make good plays in clutch situations.

He's like A-Rod, but heaps, heaps worse - he doesn't even dominate in the first half of games. He's average for the first 90% and absolutely atrocious for the last 10.

I hated that trade when it happened and I extra-hate it now. Someone needs to kneecap McHale with a crowbar. (Except replace "kneecap" with "shoot" and "with a crowbar" with "in the head. Repeatedly.")

Poor KG.

He sucks, and he's getting tons of money.

Case closed. End of discussion. Why this "Jaric doesn't suck" nonsense even had to be a topic is beyond me as he's like the epitome of getting paid a lot while sucking.

And anybody who says that he's worth $16M over 4 years deserves a smack in the mouth...

I thought he was alright with the Clipps but I knew Minny were stupid in giving up a 1st rounder. Now that I think he's garbage the deal looks even worse.
