Most guys on this board are 100% behind every move BC makes.
I will play the opposite. I would have preferred Salmons (not now because he's an idiot), at the time of signing because he's younger, and is bigger and more versitile. It is tough to argue against those things.
I actually like Jones more that Salmons, I think he can get to the basket and drawl fools, he can shoot the three. Unlike some of the posters in here, i dont see him playing the 1 and thats something Salmons could have brought. As long as Calderon and more importantly TJ stay healthy we should be fine. And at the cost, he's a better bargain than salmons.
I think the opposite of everyone here. Sure John Salmons is versitile but I feel Jones is a better basketball player. Jones didn't play to his full potential in Indiana because the Pacers system didn't fit Jones' stlye of play. Jones would play really well in an up tempo style that we want to play. Indiana also didn't give him the playing time that he deserved. The 14 games that Jones started he averaged 16 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists. I would be really happy if he could do that for us. His career high is 31 points when he played the entire game. If we give him the playing time and play the up tempo style, this guy could become a really good player. I was hoping that BC would try to sign this guy. Man, why couldn't any of the other GMs make moves like BC is doing this offseason.
What you havent heard? The phrase drawling fools is new, and its like sayin "he took him to school" or "he just housed that kid". I look forward to Feddie gettin in da paint and drawlin all ova doze fools. Now thats watsup! Ya heard?
As for who I would have preferred, Salmons only because of his playmaking ability and versitlity but I really like Jones and his athleticism so I aint to broken up about it. I really dont like that Salmons is trying to blame God for this fiasco.
I like Fred Jones better than Salmons. We would have over-paid for Salmons if he signed. Jones is a solid player and we got him for a lot less money. I also think he will fit in the run and gun system that it seems the Raps will use.
