    Uh oh, Collison shouldn’t have said that, put some much regard and light on a Christmas game, he’s going to get a talking to and have to make a huge donation to say out of trouble, ala Prince and Michael Jackson.

    Shot is done. D is worse. The back to back 4 point plays he allowed was enough to send him packing. I'll take Rondo over that any night

    playing professional ball after a 2 year layoff at an older age, he was never an elite player, figures he wouldn't be ready

    Fits in very well. Another retirement prospect who is over the hill, trying to hang around.

    Sheesh he looked horrible. Maybe we go after some young guys instead of trying to resurrect washed up players

    He set a bar that's underwater after that first game, so it didn't take much to look better after the Nets game. But he looked like he didn't wander in off the street and like he belonged on a court with other professional athletes. I don't think he can shake off the rust, get his legs and timing with only a week left. Hopefully he continues to move that needle a fraction of a point a game until our guys get back.

    He’s got a good build for a PG and still seems pretty quick? Supposed also to have been a good defender isn’t he? All of a sudden we have some decent defenders especially when Ariza and Reaves come back.

    He was a really good defender back in the day. I mean TJ Mcconnell is a pretty good comp for him. Kind of one of those average starters to really good backup type of dude.
    Not much of a shooter off the dribble but definitely had a reliable 3 pt shot if left open, quick both on offense and defense and a good playmaker.

    Not enough size or shooting off the dribble to be a star but a guy who could win you a game

    If we're gonna revisit the idea of Lebron at C and going small quite often, I'd rather keep Collison for the rest of the year.
