What players do you think could be stars if they got the minutes . If you asked me 2 weeks ago I would of said Darius Miles and Tim Thomas, but now they'll get minutes and WATCH OUT!!! Now I think, Corliss Williamson he averaged almost as many points as minutes played. Imagine if he was given 35 a night he'd be pretty darned good. Who do you guys think?

Yeah, I definately think Richard Jefferson would be a star with starter minutes.

He schooled the Summer league getting like 25/5/5 and he was getting 15ppg as a starter when Kenyon was suspended as a rookie. And he plays great defense and rebounds. RJ is definately one of my favorite players. :D

I'm not sure about Postell being a star. I could se him being a solid contributer, 13-14 points per game, but never 20 or above. Plus he was drafted by the Knicks so he can't turn out to be good.

jeryl sasser

I'd have to say jeryl sasser. The man was a great college basketball player. Was taken 22nd overall, when everyone doubted him. Sasser is a 6'6 point guard who lead the WAC in rebounding. Sasser was called a "dissapointment" for the Magic. But it's kind of hard when the most he played was 15 minutes. Sasser could be a good player, maybe not a star but a player alot of team would kill for.

Strenghts: 6'6 guy who is a point guard. Tremendous height advantages than many other point guards. Pretty good handling the ball, and can see the floor. A very unselfish player. Very good defensive player. Also can rebound both ways. I mean he can grab offensive rebounds. How many players can do both, you have trouble finding big guys that can do both. Also how many point guards can pull 6 to 8 rebounds a night?

Weaknesses: The only one that comes to my mind is his shooting. Sasser was never a great shooter, but still averaged about 18 points a game in college. Shots a low percentage and may have poor shooting selections at times. But was sent to camp to improve his shooting and he's made great changes. Orlando's coaching staff are said to be satisfied with his new shooting. Now has become an average shooter.

OMAR? He was JUST cut by the Celtics(outplayed in the summer league by a country mile - again - by JR Bremer - who you ask?). He has been cut by every team who has tried to find a place for him.

He cannot shoot, distribute, or defend.

He shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as Eddie, Jefferson, Davis, or Darius.
