Daniel Gibson on Mike Brown: ‘I Didn’t Get a Fair Chance’

Boobie Gibson hopes he’ll get a chance to show what he’s made of under his new coach, Byron Scott. From the Plain Dealer: “With less than a month before the Sept. 28 start of training camp, Gibson is looking forward to erasing the memory of last season and making his mark in Scott’s up-tempo offense. Although he usually responded when called upon, he couldn’t seem to find a regular spot in Mike Brown’s rotation last year. ‘I definitely feel like I didn’t get a fair chance,’ Gibson said of last season. ‘But as a person and a player I continue to work and have faith in God and the system we’ve put in that it will turn. That’s what I tried to do — continue to stay positive. I’m still continuing to work and hoping this year things will be different. I’m ready to play and ready to help.’ Gibson said he has altered his workouts to prepare for the new system. ‘That’s one of the things I’ve been doing all summer — getting my body in good shape, knowing that we’re going to be an up and down team,” Gibson said. “I think this summer I did a lot more cardio. Normally I don’t do cardio because I’m already frail as it is. I try to stay away from a whole lot of running because I lose a lot of weight. But this summer I did both. I did a lot of strength training, so I’m very strong right now. I combined it with a lot of calestenics, running hills, running on the beach, different things to build endurance.’”

    you just told us you never really worked out. your defense is questionable, as are your point guard skills, meaning you were basically a six foot shooting guard. it’s fun to blame the coach who isn’t there anymore, but keep it real with yourself. your skills didn’t give you a fair chance.

    You have Keyshia Cole so quit whining. You can’t have it all!!!

    chiqo you’re an idiot. watch the games. boobie was always ready when he was called upon. Sure he’s not a great defender but he’s a better defender than Mo. Gibson was one of the top in the league in what he does best.. He’s always ready even with the smallest role.. Buried behind mo/redz/parker, Boobie (like JJ) sacrificed a lot of their own improvement for the good of the team.

  • JTaylor21

    Having Keyshia Cole fine a** should be more than enough but some people are just too GREEDY, sike.

    gibson shoots very well. what else does he do so well that makes his “i didn’t get a fair chance” argument hold water? i’m glad you think you’re good enough to call me names, but what about your post is so different than mine? you admitted that his defense isn’t great and then you go on about his shooting, which i never questioned. then you mention the players ahead of him who are all better all-around players. to reiterate: what does he do so well that he deserved more than 20 minutes per game? because that’s just about right for a shooter who is playing behind an all-star.

    Damon Jones 2.0

  • Donovan

    Boobie Gibson is Mo Williams 2.0 No Defense, can’t create own shot, soft, doesn’t take it to the hole, can’t pass and is only a jump shooter..Coach Brown already had enough trash to work with why add more…No wonder Lebron left..

  • drosefan

    He’s a point guard who can’t really handle the ball….he had his chances. Does he think he’s a starting point guard? He built his name in the league as a shooter. If you stop making shots, you stop getting playing time. Simple as that. I may would stop playing well too if my girl was Keyshia Cole lol. Forget basketball.

  • The Philosopher

    Keyshia Cole is overrated.

    Y’all are high. The only problems with Keyshia Cole are her hideous tattoos, possibly high drama attitude and crazy family.
    She is fine as hell, look at the old videos when she was searching for her big break and was gyrating around half-naked. Stacked. Lol.

  • tavoris

    Keyshia Cole is underrated. Gibson definitely lucked out with that one.

    At any rate, he’s Eddie House without the moxie. Ergo, a bench player.

  • LA Huey

    Gibson’s got no handle. Remember when opposing PGs would pressure him, he’d get the ball to the top of the key with 14 seconds left on the shot clock. “Damon Jones 2.0″ is right. When his contracts up we’ll see him in endorsing Li-Ning/Peak kicks and balling in China.

    @Allenp, rare that I disagree with you but “possibly high drama attitude and crazy family” is enough reason for anyone to be considered a bad choice.

    I never liked Mike Browns rotations but Boobie did have enough playing time to prove himself. And what he proved that he could shoot a wide open 3 but not much else. Not a great defender, ball handler, passer and c/wouldn’t take it to the rim. Nor could he manage the team with or without LeBron on the court. At 6’2″ and nothing really outstanding in your game, he should shut-up and feel bleseed to have a fine a@@ wife and a spot on the bench.

    Remember this guy was tearing it up against the Pistons the year Cavs made the Finals? Then not much after that

  • ClydeSays

    He looked good when LeBron was getting quadruple teamed and left him open from 3. Otherwise, not so much. Also, this is hilarious: ” Normally I don’t do cardio because I’m already frail as it is. “

  • tavoris

    so, he wasn’t EVER building up his endurance, yet expected to get more than spot minutes in the Cav’s rotation? Does he realize that he’s still behind two other point guards on the Cav’s depth chart?

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    LA Huey
    Bad choice for a relationships, yes. That doesn’t mean she isn’t finer than a motha. Correct?
    We all know that most really fine chicks have all kinds of addtional drama. They skate by on being fine.

  • http://slamonline.com Kap

    Whoever said Keyshia Cole is overrated and not that fine should be exiled from life and castrated.

  • LA Huey

    @Allenp, true dat. I guess without a DeLorean she’s baby mama forever

  • Young C

    He had his chance, he just shot it away (get it?)

  • tavoris

    What drama does Keyshia Cole have? a drug addicted momma? Hell, that’s not all that unique. Plus, she has her own career.

    As I said before…he lucked out BIG TIME…and that would be true even if she was 72% less attractive than she is.

  • b

    These dudes must be gay if dey sayin keshia cole is underrated

  • JTaylor21

    The Philosopher you must have lost your DAMN mind thinking that K.Cole is overrated. Shorty is the sexiest black singer in my opinion, Beyonce WHO? There’s just something about when a girl can pull of tattoos and still look hella sexy with them. Shawty has me all gigidy gigidy goo like Quagmire.

    This thread should have ended after the first comment. Chiqo FTW.

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    JTaylor – sexiest has to be Keys.

  • JTaylor21

    Dacre, Keys is cool and all but she ain’t fu*king with KCole. Keys is a full fledged member of the Lickher license club.

  • The Philosopher

    Nia Long.

  • Bdub

    JTaylor, Up there for sexist singer def. Always liked Kerry Washington (Actress) myself.

  • Ali

    Ya’ll got me crackin up! Hahaha….Ed Lover clowned the he** outta Keyisha Cole & Gibson one of his older C’mon Son episodes too…

  • ConeyIslander

    You guys are hilarious! lol

  • Love The Game

    I guess Gibson didn’t have much of an impact at all with his game…Since the discussion changed from being about him to being about K Cole. That says it all for me.
