Damn, this guy can still get better, but his body seems to not want to work for him. With his face and body, you would think he was 35 years old. I remember him at UCLA, but it seemed like such a long time ago.

Yeah he is still pretty young, it seems like hes been around a lot longer though.. its almost like all those injuries have dragged his career on.

why should he change his ways when his team usually wins? Anyway....he would be playing much differently if he was indeed 100% healthy and didnt have to worry about future injuries. Then he would be able to revert back to his take-it-to-the-hole-and-finish-in-your-face style.

His team usually wins? Not really. He hasn't won a whole lot. There is no excuse for the number of threes he takes at the horrid percentage he hits them. Whether he is injured or not.

His teams have always made the playoffs, and he has turned the Warriors around.

As for there being no no excuse to take threes - he shoots only .456 on twos for his career and .328 on threes, which is the equivalent of .492.

What do you mean he usually doesn't win? The only exception to him winning might be this year, where he wasn't even playing with his team for most of the season.

His injuries add 8 years. I don't know if it's even possible for him to ever be healthy for a whole year. So many things wrong. Bad back, bad knees.......he is probably in constant pain.

He would be a great player if he ever could stay healthy. Best of wishes to him though. Love to watch him play.

Baron is more of a "winner" than Marbury has ever been. The Hornets had some very solid teams 3-4 years ago, and Baron was a big part of those teams.




It's not completely to Baron's credit, but look at how good the Warriors are playing now. Whether or not Baron is a chucker, he is an impact player. Even when I watched him play limited minutes with the Hornets this year, you could tell he just had a positive impact on the team. The reality is that he's a score-first pass second PG, and guys like that will always have the "chucker" label on them.

Agreed that Baron is a winning pg. Only Nash is above him in that regard among elite points. Marbury, Kidd, Franchise, Iverson, Bibby all have had plenty of losing seasons, Baron hasn't.

It's a pity he is so injury-prone.

Chucker or not, he is a terrific player.
