    He only has two moves

  • KingBenjamin

    Never understood why he couldn’t maintain a roster spot, hopefully he can find minutes as a backup to Gerald Henderson.

    Not following….

    his game at memphis was a lot like Shawn Marions’. Shot threes, played good defense ran up and down the floor but not a ball handler, a go to option but a glue guy

  • LakeShow

    Still not following lol.

    He’s more like Paul Pierce than Shawn Marion IMO.

  • pposse

    Really? idk he didnt get much burn in the NBA but i dont see him isolating any defenders in the league..i thought he was pure hustle out in Memphis.

  • brothasdontsurf

    he has a name like a wnba player

    You all need to watch CDR highlights. He definitely has an iso game, which is actually what his game revolves around. He is a scorer. At Memphis he was the primary option on a team that had D Rose. In his best game as a pro he had 30 points with Lebron guarding him. His opportunity is well over due. He should have been on some teams bench long ago.

    nah but why isnt jesse dunn in the league. nike give him his own brand dunnba

  • JL

    No in the NBA he was more of a ISO guy. He’s not much of a rebounder or defender, of which the Matrix excelled at in his prime. Not to mention the quirkily accurate shooting. Fastest double jumper for a while. He’s basically a poor man’s… I don’t know. The type of player he is doesn’t make the NBA. He’s like a bankrupt Kobe.

    Well said.

    Inconsistent, but skilled.

  • LakeShow

    I’m sticking with poor man’s Paul Pierce haha.

    He’s more of a scorer than anything else.

    At the NBA level he is mediocre to poor at everything. Multi-talented, but not very good at anything.
