    He played 31 minutes per game in the playoffs on a team that made the finals and you don't think he is good enough to be on our team?

    Also box scores don't capture his full impact. He is a hard nosed defensive player and I expect that is what he will bring to this team more than anything.

    They're basically the same player at this point.

    His defense has fallen off a cliff, much like PJ Tucker's. There is a reason Pat Riley (one of the best all-time GMs) didn't want him back unless it was for the veteran minimum.

    As I said in the other thread, this is a solid signing and one that needed to be made after trading for CP3.

    Three years is longer than I would have liked but you can always trade him in the third year as we clearly saw that he had several teams that were interested in him this off-season.

    Good Signing. I like his experience, toughness, and can give us some 3 & D here and there.

    Comes down to if that 3rd year is a TO or not. If so good deal, if not it's pretty bleh.

    So he’s petty reliable which is important with Cam’s hip problems. I’d probably take him over Millsap at this price for that reason alone.

    I like it. We are on the verge of being an elite defensive team.

    The Phoenix Suns.

    Elite.

    Defense.

    Pigs are definitely flying.

    I agree! For weeks now I keep reading we need more defense, more athleticism, etc. We sign Crowder after people were bitching Sarver was too cheap to spend money. Then everyone is bitching we spent too much money on Crowder? Spending too much of Sarver's money? I can't keep up. We don't spend money. Blame Sarver. We spend too much money, blame Sarver!

    Dude, he started every playoff game for a team that went to the finals last year. Think people might take you more seriously if your takes weren't so extreme.

    If these are the HIGHLIGHTS, it's even worse than I thought. Yes, Crowder took a charge and made a nice play here and there, but on most of these plays, Crowder was slow to switch or switched to the wrong man, or simply got abused by Giannis, who either shot right over him or just backed him down in the paint with ease. Try again.
