Yea and I support the Dodgers and Angels, USC football, UCLA Basketball, the Rams (who in my mind are still the LA Rams). My Dad grew up in Torrance and all I knew growing up was supporting these teams and I still do.
Let's see all the negative/apathetic comments about Brown in this thread.
None of the statements made there are false.
Brown is still not that good. If the Knicks take him at a higher price then good for them. No point paying more than the minimum for a guy like Brown.
Sasha is still probably better and will come off the bench ahead of Brown. So will Barnes.
Brown is also easily replaceable by another player.
But this does not make Brown a bad signing. It's still a good one as you're getting an athletic guard that gives the team hustle and energy coming off the bench for a very cheap price. Doesn't hurt that he's trained in the Triangle and you don't have to wait for a new guy to learn it. I don't see what you're pointing out quoting these comments here.
As for Shannon, for all his flaws he helps balance the team out by providing some needed athleticism and the last 2 years have shown that he he's capable at filling a role like that on a championship team.
I like that he's staying, it shows he wants to win, that he likes the organization and his teammates, kudos.
Good pickup for cheap. I like Shannon and his athleticism really helps. Not a crucial signing by any means but Shannon is a solid player, adds to our depth and it's simply good to have him on the roster.
I like Shannon. I was open to moving him in the name of just trying something different but I have no regrets about re-signing him. For the purposes of our specific needs it might have been better to go with a more pure shooter but Shan definitely does a job.
