Default marcin gortat...

is he worth the 5 yr contract? i thought that i must be missing out on something since Dallas went after him pretty quick.

will he get more PT and/or a better role? i saw where he was disappointed that he got re-signed(why i don't know) but he should at least get the minutes that Battie was playing, right?

tell him about this guy.

We're actually still a pretty damn good team when Gortat starts. He's good at taking charges, he blocks shots, he grabs rebounds. He does all the things every center should be able to do. I definitely think he could start somewhere.

But really, I think we have other plans in the works. I wouldn't be surprised if Gortat is dealt before the trade deadline.

i wondered that also. u think they could have signed him in hopes of trading him off, possibly to DAL who originally wanted him?

now do u think he would have had a bigger role if he were on the Mavs instead?

I definitely think he could play a bigger role on the Mavs. That Game 6 in the first round against Philly he did a great job playing center for us and I think it was that game that really proved that Gortat is a quality center.

He probably would have started for the Mavs if he went there. I doubt he will be moved this year, but I wouldn't be surprised if we kept him till at least next off-season. He was upset because he won't get many minutes with the Magic as he and Dwight can't play very well together.

And yes, he is worth the contract.

Gortat might be one of the most underrated players in the NBA. That tells you how good a player he is that they’re gonna pay him that type of money to sit on the bench. I watched him play a few times but to get to watch him every day game during the playoffs; I think he’s one of the ten best centers in the NBA.

Depth is almost always important for a good playoff run and I'm glad our team has plenty of it!
