hmm, what's the chance acie gets some playing time next game?

The expected treatment is at least 3 DNP-CDs.

Whenever we play the Hornets, the Hawks announcers wonder out loud what the Hawks would be if they'd taken Paul. I watch Acie and am forced to wonder what Chris Paul would be like under Mike Woodson.

Acie obviously is no CP3, but he's no Royal Ivey, and deserves a chance to prove it.

JDS said...

yep, just a chance before his confidence is totally destroyed.

If Acie Law were anything near a CP3, he would have proven it during the countless prior opportunities he's been given.

Law turns the ball over a lot for a point, he's generally afraid to shoot and his mind wanders on defense.

That said, it was nice to see him contribute during some signifigant minutes this evening.
