good for Griff. He's a good guy and does bring some intangibles. Though his lack of a shot hurt them at times. It allowed the other team to cheat on defense. And the Mavs did replace him with Buckner.

i hate stackhouse, griffin play much better than him, the only the that stack got on griff is three point range, which is still mediocore to say the least. Griffin was a much better defender and shot around 47 percent and didnt turn the ball over that much. Meanwhile stackhouse is proned to making bonehead mistakes and he shoots a horrid 41 percent. So i dont know y any one would like stackhouse. Griffin fits in with dallas better.

Considering Griff was unsigned last year and home on the couch, a lot of teams might be guilty of that. They signed Buckner, who is basically the same player as Griffin but with a better shot. So it's not like he left for nothing. Besides Nash, what good player has left? Finley was waved as a luxury tax casualty, so don't say he left. Griffin is a good team guy but don't let your hate for Stack blind you to the fact he is a better player. VERY few people would take Griffin over Stack.

i love it when people comment on stuff without thinking. Look at why griffin shot a high percentage, no one ever guarded him, he wasn't an offensive threat. Any player in the nba should be able to shoot 47% when wide open 7-10 ft from the basket. I agree stackhouse shoots too much, but he also lights a fire under the team at times and wakes them up.

I will miss everything that griff did (mainly the 3 offensive boards a game), but you can hardly compare griffin to to stack.

How much playing time did griff get in the playoffs?

Buck is a younger, more athletic, version of griff, and he's a better shooter to boot (dont throw mis leading stats back out to refute that, he's a better shooter, period). Lay off the crack and dont believe something just cause your hometown sports columnist is digging for some nba news right now.
