good stuff. Quisy still has it. I still cringe thinking about that injury he had with us.

For comparison, Jeff Green is averaging 9.4 / 3.0 / 0.6 (both green and quisy are playing about 20 min per game)

I always liked Quisy.  He was a bit up and down with us.  He gave us some good games in the playoffs last year, and I always liked his game.  I wish he was still on the team.  Change of pace from Green / C Lee on the wing.  I am glad to see that he is playing well.

Is this thread insinuating that we could have gotten a hair less than Green's productivity at 1/7th cost, and no long term commitment? From a better defender who knows the system here and accepts a bench role well?

If so, count me in.

This guy would have worked out nicely too:

And I'm just gonna say "I told you so," because I rarely get that opportunity.

hindsight is 20/20.  at the end of last year Marq. looked pretty well cooked.  Can't blame DA for moving on.  Sometimes a change in venue had a really positive impact on the player.  It seems like it was in this case.

I'll always root for 'Quis--a good guy and a smart ball player.

He didn't just give good games he pretty much came as close to any one player "winning" a game for us... he made his shots, hustled, and "shut down" Wade and Bron in that game for a stretch. I mean it was amazing considering the amount he played (DNP) before that. Who knows what he would have given us all year had Doc given him a bit more PT and trusted him through his slump, after-all the guy just came back after he was almost never able to play again! I think the regular season is when you are suppose to give everyone a chance a few times... especially for a team that always has a period of coasting, why not give those players ample opportunity through struggles b/c like AB, it may turn out to be huge for you... I mean, we are losing anyway, let the scrubs or "diamonds in the rough" get their shot (KJ and Fab *cough*)!

I'm happy for him!

Marquis has always been one of those guys that gives you pretty much nothing unless he has the ball in his hands.  Never would've worked and I don't know why he lasted here so long (we wouldn't even give him the ball when Eddie House and Nate Robinson were our PGs).

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner

Marquis was a fantastic off the ball player as a cutter.  Rondo called him the best cutter he's ever played with.  Obviously he wasn't much of a spot up shooter, though.

Yeah because he's left alone so often.  I'm pretty sure Rondo would rather play with someone that commands more honest attention.
