But he can't shoot, NEAR as well as Ben Gordon.

I'm not talking about skill, just role. Come off the bench and be the go to guy for 10 minutes at a clip. If he's hot, you run with him, if not, try again tomorrow. The problem is that it's not worth dealing with him to put him in that role. He doesn't defend well enough to play 2, and he can't run a team at all. So there aren't a whole lot of roles for him to fill.

yeah. Let's not get over-excited and think he can drop 67 on NBA cats. Cause he never got up over the 20's when he played. I see him in that Vinnie Johnson type mold.

If healthy and playing big Minutes Wagner WOULD score in the 20's in the League. He had a couple 30 point games a rookie.

It is a shame cause he should have been in Damon Jones Role if he still was with the Cav's. Wagner is just flat out better offensively than Damon and they defend about the same but Wags could get better with his terrific strength and proper coaching.

Didnt he have 32 or something in his first game or against AI(or was it both at the same time). I remember him lighting it up for a few games but he flat out couldnt stay healthy.

Yeah He did. He also had a 30 and 10 game against the knicks. He couldn't stay healthy partially because his body was breaking down from the disease he had. If he is 100% cured like they said he is I expect him to stay healthy because he is built like a football player and is in great shape.

Wags can score, he is a scorer. Getting 20 aint nothing to him in the league. Efficientcy is a problem.

If he were on the Wiz, they'd be able to cut off every front court players' fingers, and it would be 4 weeks before anyone noticed.

That would make Ty Lue the best third string PG in the history of the sport.
