Default trenton hassel sucks

..im getting scared by some of the positive comments about him in the other thread. have any of you seen him play? SAKF obviously relates to him as a gritty, scrappy player...but that doesnt mean hes any good....and hes hidiously ovepaid.

this cat has been in the L since 01 and has ONE good season (03-04), where he was playing next to a leader who wanted the ball on offense in sammy, and respected by defensive-minded teammates spree and KG. this guy is trash. he has value only as a poor man's Bowen on a contendor who can play 15 a night off the bench.

He's good. Just leave it at that, stats don't mean anything. He's a great perimeter defender with average offense.

A combo of those two things don't suck.

Agreed, from what I've seen, but if he is this supposed shut down defender, we could use him, that's something we weren't to **** hot at last year.

AVERAGE OFFENSE? hahahahah...please...hahahah. he does not have AVERAGE offense for even an nba rotation player, let alone a guy who is making the full MLE.

he is DEFINATELY below average on offense. NO QUESTION.

Hassell DOES have average offense, he just doesn't have three-point range. He's above average at a few things inside the arc to make up for that. Also, what Hassell signed for was not the full MLE at the time and is even smaller compared to the current MLE.

What you thinks doesn't matter because you don't know anything.

He's not hideously overpaid. He makes $4.35 million per year. There are players rotting on half the teams' benches that make more than that. Hassell makes meaningful impact.

Also, he's had THREE good seasons, all of them with Minnesota. He just got a lot more attention in that one season because of the team's success, which is normal. When a team is successful, a player gets praised. When the team isn't successful, the player, even when doing the same things, gets called "hideously overpaid," which is not at all accurate.

Hassell doesn't suck... dang. by what standard does he suck? All star standard? Sure. But as far as roleplayer, you can't ask for too much more.
