if the mavs sign him for a large contract and he reaches his "potential" then great, i just dont want them to lock up their money in another KVH, Croshere, Damp type contract, all good players that weren't, aren't, or won't be worth the 2 or so years of their contract. But hey, that's the risk they weren't willing to take with stevie nash, and look what happened to him.
The main reason I would pay 10 mill to keep Howard is the toughness he provides. He is definately a gritty player that the Mav's need. George and Stackhouse aren't exactley in their prime anymore, and Griffin isn't that great of a scorer. He still hasen't even reached his primeyet . Anyways, being a Bucks fan, we're paying Bobby Simmons about the same and I'd trade him for Howard any day of the week..
he's good, and im a big fan, but personally i think he's overrated... he's less important to this team then you will ever realize
pay more attention to the games and less attention to meaningless stats tv channels come up with to add hype to a game. He's good, but at this point he has rarely served as more than a good role player, and too often disappears on the court.
If he keeps developing i could see him becoming another franchise cornerstone like finley once was, but he's not there yet.
well hes a very good player to be chosed like 29th in the draft, well atleast u guys have a good GM the lakers are horrible at choosing prospects, they chose luke walton over josh howard..very hard to be a laker fan besides watching kobe carry the **** other players like odom dont do
Prince is a better shot blocker and defender. But Josh has the all around game, I really enjoy watching him play. I wouldn't be suprised if he finished next season with a few triple doubles. Josh is worth 7-9 million per year, and Cuban should sign him to a long contract.
I'd like to see Josh embrace the role of "ultimate role player" Every successful team needs one of those guys. No shame in being called that. I just wonder if he will settle for that. I'm already worried that last year he was settling for the jumper more than taking it in or getting hustle buckets. He still has some upside. Let's just hope his ego doesn't.
Close to all star level is about what he will be. With the forwards in the west, unless someone is injuried, starts to tail off as he gets older, gets traded to the east, or Josh really busts out. I don't see him making an all star team.
