What a pickup Barbosa has been
« on: February 01, 2013, 11:02:20 PM »
No cr for the Brazilian blurr. He was on fire tonight. He is just ultra hard to guard. He looks to score quite a bit of times but he will make some really decent passes every other possession. I liked the way he ran across the offensive zone and made a quick pass on top of the key for Terry to shoot. He was wide open, and too bad he missed.

Barbosa has been lights out on defense. I've never seen him defend this good before. Just too fast out there.

I'm waiting for a crazy unproductive game sooner or later but for now he has been the best cheapest pickup, any team has made. Its crazy how alot of teams gave up on him

i think the pitbulls have taught him how to play defense. he's beating the opponent to the spot with his body and speed. im really loving the blur right now

TP.  Definitely not enough finger rolls in today's game.  I like the Blur's style.

he's been solid whenever he played...I hope he continues producing the same stats for us...

if we can keep this bench production, I think we can seriously make some noise in the playoffs

Barbosas speed is insane he gets to the hoop as easily as superstars in this league, his problem is he needs to finish and pass out a little more, he should be coming off bench before Jet at this point

also, idk, but since Rondo went down, I think our bench production has been more consistent?

Definitely an above average bench scorer per minute.  I'm not sure how much else he does for a team.  But scoring he can do.

Always been one of my favorite players in the league.  And our team has desperately needing a player that will just put his head down and commit to getting the rim.  Yet at the same time, he'll always make the pass if it's the right move.

I saw no reason for Doc to go with a 3 guard rotation with Rondo, Terry, and Lee the way he did.  I understand the two of them needed some extreme help getting comfortable, but we need his aggression and shooting more.  He's been our 3rd leading scorer per 36 the entire season.
Philly:

Anderson Varejao    Tiago Splitter    Matt Bonner
David West    Kenyon Martin    Brad Miller
Andre Iguodala    Josh Childress    Marquis Daniels
Dwyane Wade    Leandro Barbosa
Kirk Hinrich    Toney Douglas   + the legendary Kevin McHale
