Oh how I miss Wang...NOT!!!!!

Give it a rest, if he don't play he can't produce. No need to take shots at the guy just because he signed elsewhere and not the Mavs. It's ok to sign with another team guys, look at Greg Buckner.

Looks like Wang is getting &quot;0&quot; chance to play.

The Mavs were down to (lol) Shawn Bradley as their only healthy center last night. One more body, who can play, would sure help.

In which situation would getting minutes be more difficult:

playing behind All-Star Brand and FA-to-be Kandi, who each played 47 minutes in a hard-fought 2-point loss v. the Sixers;


playing behind LaF (Injured list) and Mantis (32 solid minutes v. Raps)?

If reports are correct about an injury to Esch, the Mavericks' frontcourt depth is down to 6.8 N&aacute;jera, and if/when he returns from the injured list, 6.8 Popeye Jones.

Where is that mystery 7-footer when you need him?

wang doesn't get playing time and the clips lose. again.

Right now, Walt Williams looks like the Wang that Wang never was.

11-07-2002, 09:56 AM
Wang is getting all the playing time he deserves.

11-07-2002, 02:49 PM
Let me rephrase: People, earlier, were making comments that Wang did not improve because he didn't get enough playing time with the Mavs. A couple of people even hinted that this was unfair on the Nelsons' part. Also, some commented that Wang would flourish in another system.

Wang, although it is too early to tell for sure, is not thriving with the Clippers; a team that quite possibly will not make the playoffs yet again. If Wang were actually half as good as some on this board think he is, this would not be happening.

Face facts; Wang is a limited role-player; nothing more and nothing less; now and forever.

<< and your point? >>

I think his point is that Wang sucks balls and Buckner doesn't since he actually contributes.

But I don't want to speak for him.

another entry in the 'what is madape thinking' game:

I thought his point was that buckner's sucking it up, too.
those numbers aren't much of a contribution. Why he would make that point in this thread, only the mad one knows (and sometimes I think even he doesn't)

<< Right now, Walt Williams looks like the Wang that Wang never was. >>

Yeah!!!!!!!! I AGREE WITH madape !!!

This is a good, very good conclusion.

Im very serious about this. Walt is years ahead Wang, producing, helping, scoring, cheering, whatever!

11-07-2002, 07:52 PM
Difference is that Williams' best years are 6-10 years behind him, and Wang's are 3-5 years ahead of him.

That's all.

<< Wang's are 3-5 years ahead of him. >>

Wang hasn't showed anything yet and there's a good chance he never will. He might be out of the league by 4 years if he keeps playing like he is. Walt is way better for the mavs than Wang. The wizard can play a little D unlike Wang.
