    I like Downs

    I know he has no shot at all to make the team but I hope he catches on somewhere.  He has game.

    But his days are numbered, (according to some), because of his skin pigmentation..lol.

    He is certainly making it hard on Doc.  He is more athletic than he looks.  Makes great choices on the court.  Just has a good basketball IQ.  I find myself pulling for him also.

     

    On a side note, Joseph is looking pretty damn good also.

    +1 am on board on this one as well..guy can play. He moves his feet well on the defensive end. Can dribble, can pass..would be a good pick..I give him the edge over Kris Joseph at this moment..dunno in the long run though.

    Watching the Knicks/C's game last night I was moved to make a thread about Downs... glad to see one already here.

    Im liking what I see...hes quick, drives and rebounds.. also seems the hustler and can shoot.

     

    Dont know if Doc keeps him, who's he have to beat out for the last spot on the team?

    I would think it would have to be Joeseph.

     That behind the back move was a real eye opener! I really like his hustle and agility. Joseph is beefier and is also a great player but if MD puts on some weight he might be best overall. Both are better than Kurz at this point imo.

    I hear you,the more I see of the guy the more I like him. Even if he racks up 80 inactives for the season I hope he makes the final 15.

    Like Downs a lot... great hustle good defense athletic with good hops....the problem is Joseph gives you most of that but he also is a threat from outside so I would def give him the edge

    I would give him the edge too.  I see no way that Downs makes the team, just too bad because I think he can play in the NBA.  He has been in Europe since he graduated from Gonzaga, he is much better than I thought he was.

    Re: I like Downs

    Joseph gets my vote, hands down...but I so like both...the only way to make this team now is if you are a big that runs, blocks shots, and plays d, a true pt guard, a sf with AB like defense, or a spot up lights out shooter...he is neither...

    Re: I like Downs

    MD would be a nice addition but is he a nicer addition than others also trying to make the team?  There is a log jam at the 2 and small forward positions.  Unless there is an injury to someone, his chances are slim but I hope he catches on somewhere.  He deserves it.  Lets see how he and the others on the cut line do tonight.

    One thing for sure, if he does not make the team, it is because the roster is so deep.

    Im not sure of our roster situation but i thought he had a good shot of making the team. I thought we were at 16 players?? I dont know if thats counting Barbosa or not. I know kurz will definitely be cut,  hopefully we can keep both joseph and downs. I been rooting for downs for about 3-4 games now and hope he remains a Celtic.

    Ainge saw talent in Downs and Kurz, perhaps he's holding onto them until all trade possibilities are exhausted.  I see Ainge trading two-three quality reserves for one or two upgrades.
