Dump Collins for (Chris Andersen or Kenyon Martin.) They are both very good Rebounders & are available for very cheap.

Once more, trade him or Darko or Wilcox (add some fillers) and get Jason Smith from NO.

He's the Forward/Center we need.

Collins will not see the floor once Darko is healthy enough to play.

YES! Another Darko believer!

Though Collins was fantastic tonight for a 13th man.

Collins is horrific offensively, and poor at rebounding.  His only role on the team is to stop opposing post centers. 

Last night, his job was to slow down Brook Lopez.  He failed in that regard in the 1st quarter -- Lopez scored 6 points in about 3 minutes -- but played solid defense in the 2nd.

Or at least don't play him instead of Wilcox, honestly.

I think he'll definitely be the first to go if the C's need to open a roster spot for somebody.  But right now, who else is out there?  I guess Kenyon Martin still doesn't have a team, but I assume there's a reason for that.

Its his first game, i'll give him a break.
The whole team sucked on their first few games, so he deserves the same patience to get his act together.

Collins...ooh.

What did we expect from him again?  A defensive 7 footer?

Put me in there.  At 5'10, at least when I throw the elbows around they would've taken out Lopez' kidneys.  That's more likely to alter his shot than Collins standing motionless with his hands up while Lopez shot over or around him.

I cant believe Collins was the first big Doc used off the bench and not Darko.

Free Darko!
