the kings aren't going to put a 20 year old in their starting line up to develop his potential. he can develop on the bench and in trash minutes. they are trying to win the title now, they don't have time for that crap.
Gerald Wallace can do it all and these boys who are talking trash obviously haven't seen G-Wallace play more then 2 or 3 games and that's why they would dare bash him. The kid's athetlism alone can make him an instant contributer to the Kings even as a starter but as a shooting guard I think Christie's balance on defense and offense is too much to let go.
I disagree with the Wallace bashers though, he can do it all from creating his own shot to rebounding and blocking. For christ sake he can even hit some nice jumpers what more can you ask for? haters..
If they're not going to play him they should trade him
His contract will be up in a year or two, and by then he'll be ready to step in and contribute for someone. If they don't give him some minutes now he will be less likely to resign with them, so they should get something to help them win now while they can.
His trade value isn't high right now because he only played 8 minutes a game. If you look at the Kings lineup, Christie is the weakest link. I like Christie more coming off of the bench. Maybe move Turkoglu and pollard for a big man.
