He was stupid to leave Phoenix.

What a dumb decision.
Though the NBA should have investigated Denver for tampering. And when McDyess called Kidd and Chapman that he doesn't really want to sign with Denver, Chap and Kidd got on the airplane to Denver but the security guards were told not to let them in the arena.

Nobody showed up and Dice signed with Denver because he was pressured into it by Van Exel and others.

They even showed footage of Chapman and Kidd trying to get into the arena on the TV broadcast.

He'd be a definite All-Star in the East if 100%. Borderline All-Star in the West since there are already so many good ones there.

he was on his way to be a better version of KMART where he used to use his explosiveness as his skill ..... i think he would have been the 3rd best PF next to Duncan and KG ... IF he dind't get hurt

I think the best comparison for McDyess was Kemp. He wasn't quite the competitor that Kemp was but he was equally skilled. The athleticism he had at that size was astonishing. The man was a physical marvel. He had everything you could ever want in a basketball player. The only thing that was lacking was that killer instinct that defines great players.

Oh man. McDyess was so money. good comparison with Kemp. McD averaged 20 10.

behind Grant Hill, he's no.3 on the "I wish he didn't get injured cuz he would have had an AWESOME career" list

Well if McDyess didnt leave Suns, Kidd would still probably be playing for us. We would of also added another big time player.


So McDyess leaving made a huge impact...

If we managed to keep Kidd and McDyess and we still drafted Marion... Suns would still be playoff participants...2nd rounder atleast.
