Thumbs up Good luck to Devin Harris

While most of us Dallas fans agree that he hasn't lived up to the expectations you have for a No. 5 pick, he still improved in every season, he is a tremendous defender against speedy point guards who aren't built like a tank, he can get to the basket whenever he wants to, his jumpshot has come a long way and can now be considered decent, he can be a one man fastbreak and he is also a good guy.

I wish him all the best, hopefully he will get more freedom to be the player he can be, not the player the coach wants him to be. If this is the case he has a chance to become a similar version of Tony Parker.

good to know

that should give us 3 guards/forwards who can get to the rim...some slash and dish type game should be involved...I'm excited

what do u know about Ager?

and Kidd will be fine...not sure what Allen will do for u guys but Wright can defend the west guards pretty well.

Re: Good luck to Devin Harris

If Miller lands in NJ that is a lot of passing back to the arc.

I'm hoping Harris takes it up a notch in Jersey.

To be honest Ager hasn't shown anything and he is already 24, I think he could become a decent role player if he learns to make better decision. He has never gotten minutes, but he also didn't seem to improve much or put enough effort into improving, hard to tell. He can shoot a bit, however there is a bigger chance that he won't be in the league in two years than actually becoming a part of the rotation.

Re: Good luck to Devin Harris

I'm just hoping Harris makes my username valid again.

But all "kidd"ing aside, I'm going to miss Jason. If it had been up to me, the trade wouldn't have happened. But these are the players we've been delt, and I'm going to do my best to cheer the Nets on. I'm excited to see how Harris does. I hope he gets to play his game here. It would be awesome to get some fast-breaking going again.

Devin Harris has gotten better every year since he was in High School... that's going to continue.

Re: Good luck to Devin Harris

Devin has a ton of skill and was one of the fans favorites his entire time here. We had very lofty expectations for him, which he never lived up to. I wish him nothing but the best as a Net. I have this feeling that he will bring his A game every time he plays us for the rest of his career.

Re: Good luck to Devin Harris

croco, do you think that Devin can play well with the athletic big man like Sean Williams, Josh Boone, and Stro-Swift?

Does he know how to lob the pass to those big men? I hope Devin would play great for the Nets,we need a young, explosive, quick, and killer instinct PG.

it's time to move on, it's a new era.

Yeah, he did and I have to agree that his skillset is not very high. Keep your expectations for him as low as possible, otherwise he will probably disappoint.

Re: Good luck to Devin Harris

I think one thing is certain, there will never be a point guard that plays for New Jersey that will ever surpass what Kidd has done for the team. In that aspect, Harris might be doomed from the start, because some will try and compare everything he does to Kidd
