[QUOTE]Hey. Davis is Davis. For a bench power forward he is great for this team. He won't be a super star, thats for sure. But he is one of the best most consistent guys off the bench in this league. Im not against trading him, but he is worth something decent if we do trade him. With a fully healthy team, JO can play backup 4 with either Perk or Shaq at the 5 with him
. That would obviously only be for this year, and since the team will prob be in rebuilding mode b4 we know it, if we could get a prince or something equivalent for baby, then I say make the trade. Otherwise, he doesn't really hurt us. Just Remember his play in 09 during the playoffs. He helped us in a good number of those playoff wins as a starter, and he was just in his second year. Lets see what happens.

Egads man! hook line and sinker. you'd have to time travel to a different dimension where jerlame o'knee-l could ever be considered reliable. he just isn't. doesn't matter if he looks great for 10 games, 15 or even 20. he is porcelain.
so with the entire premise of your arguemnet being that JO could be healthy and we don't need davis, it falls apart right there. if we tried to run jerlames for 30 mins a game 20 games straight he'd be done for the year. he doesn't have it in him any more.
i am a big davis fan, masquerading as a cheap hater earlier in this thread. yeah i'm dismayed by his rebounding numbers but have to believe there is room for him to get to a servicable level. there is nobody out there who isn't making nearly 3 times davis' money who's worth having instead of davis.
people don't remember when they hate on the fat brother that he is the best help defender in the league. that wasn't a hamburger than richard gypperson ran into in the lane in the SEMINAL MOMENTS OF THE GAME LAST NIGHT, that was lovable old fatty glen davis. guys in this leauge increasingly just don't do that stuff any more! too selfish, too high paid, not enough desire to win.
