Fall back, MONBD

Note to Association: this won't work. Neglected, omni-positional black Frenchmen are not all created equal. Even if one who plans to "do a lot for the team" does have the last name "Diawara."

And while we're on this, y'all need to browbeat Brickowski into unleashing his MONMG on the FD community. It deserves a wider audience than just the people who read my incoming emails.

you're just mad because he might take j.r.'s spot at the 2.

I don't see how you can even have a MONMG. There will never be another player like Mickael Gelabale, no matter what Free Darko has to say about it.

Especially since Diaw had a reputation as a good passer since day 1, long before the trade to Phoenix.


Meanwhile, Diawara's Euroleague stats suggest he doesn't handle the ball much nor does he even look to pass when he DOES have the ball.

pietrus, as disappointing as he's been, should thank his golden hoops that he didn't enter the league with this sign in the sky

His form in that picture looks exactly like Artest's.

then again, pietrus was referred to as the french jordan, with diaw as his sidekick - the french pippen. i believe they were teamates in france. so is diawara the french scott williams?

The following was posted on this site a year ago:

"Diaw, Boris

BS: Came into this league touted as the French Scottie Pippen. Not a current All-Star—an all-timer. This was the beginning of the end of “tremendous upside” speculation.

THC: Will flourish with the Suns. Mark my words. WILL FLOURISH.

BR: People need to realize that French people can't play basketball. Tony Parker only gets by because his dad is an American."

1. scouting reports compared him to pippen, hawks nevertheless seemed to think that pg, rather than point forward, was his destiny.

2. you'll have to ask "THC" about his statement.

Is it a crime that when I saw MONBD I immediately became excited by the thought we would be getting a Bison Dele reference?

"MONMG" refers to Manu Ginobili? (I had to look up an alphabetical list of NBA players to figure that out.) Hmmm, skinny, quiet lefty swingman with a penchant for spectacular plays. Don't we already have that in Tayshaun Prince?

What's MON mean?

My powers of decoding betray me.

We need less ambiguity with the MONxx labels, I thought the "BD" stood for Baron Davis, since I'm still living in 2003. "MG" for Martell Green, as in highschoolers we've never seen play but are supposedly the future of the league even though they're just the last (desperate?) high-school entrants in NBA history. Are we allowed to start crying about what those folks and JR Smith could have been or is there still some kind of hope? It may just be circumstances around me, but the state of the NBA at this point just makes me want to break down and cry. I've only been interested for some five years but it's beginning to feel like an NBA Live 2004 team to me to which I've lost any emotional connection to.

I was personally hoping for the Myth of the Next Mike Gansey.

I have a soft spot in my heart for guys like him, who always get pimped a bit too much before the draft because they're white and you start thinking, "Maybe this one will be different. Maybe this one will actually crack a rotation somewhere."

Actually, I'm just excited about the Pittsnogle era in Boston.
