BLESS GOD!

Obviously this is to supplant the injury to Joe JOhnson, but the son of the Great Dominique Wilkins is finally playing for this franchise! And he is not half-bad as a player!

While Joe is out Mo Evans starts at the 2. Jamal still come off the bench, so Damien will be Marvins backup..

Not to burst your bubble, but Damien is Dominique Wilkins' nephew, not his son. Damien's father is Gerald Wilkins.

^ true.

back in like '05, Damien dropped 40 for the Sonics in ATL when he was starting for an injured Ray Allen. Usually he's not that great.

I remember that game. I was sooo pumped on Damien after the game. He came into my work and acted real stuck up. I wanted him traded after that

All bias and jokes aside, he has a lot of talent but is too inconsistent. At times he reminds me of JR Smith...taking unecessary shots just because he can.

Well he'll give us some depth while Joe is out, and he isn't a bad player from what I've seen from him. A streaky 3 point shooter like him is good to have off the bench.

We are short on depth on the wings so Damien is probably as good a player as we could have picked up on short notice.
