Eddie Jones vs. Latrell Sprewell

Jones:
18.3 PPG
4.7 RPG*
3.2 APG
1.44 SPG*
0.95 BPG*
.432 FG%*
.837 FT%*
.390 3P%*
39.0 MPG

Sprewell:
19.4 PPG*
3.7 RPG
3.9 APG*
1.16 SPG
0.17 BPG
.404 FG%
.821 FT%
.360 3P%
41.1 MPG*

Eddie Jones had higher %s, and had more blocks, steals, and rebounds while playing LESS minutes. He's better.

I like Eddie Jones game, he also has more trade value when you want to part with him. Nethier Eddie Jones or Spre are keepers at this point in their careers.

I would take Spree over Eddie. Spree is a bright spot on an otherwise undertalented team, while Eddie is in a playoff contending team that has been underwhelming. Similar athleticism, but Spree seems to have more drive.

I would pick Spree. I have always been a Eddie Jones fan since his days in L.A., but he always faded in the playoffs. Spree seems to step up his game in the playoffs, and seems to be a better go to player than Eddie. Eddie is a very good complimentary player, but Spree is a superstar type player stuck on a sorry a$$ franchise.

I think Spre lights it up durin the playoffs cause he takes way more shots... part of why Houston's shots were down is cause those shots must have gone to someone, I think to Spre...

I would take Eddie, simply because it is too close to say and I like Eddie more.

Eddie wins in a walk in my mind. Eddie puts up a higher field goal percentage despite defending the opposing team's best perimeter player each and every night. Eddie makes the Heat tick in those long periods of scorelessness when Brian Grant and Anthony Carter aren't getting any open looks because they are not going to ZO enough in the post.

Not to mention, I think Eddie can actually shut Spree down for long stretches in a game. Spree defending Eddie, on the other hand, is a mismatch.

I agree with this opinion. Eddie is a very good player, but he is not as "competitive" in the playoffs as Spree has always shown. They both gamble on defense, going for steals when there isn't one and have gotten burned many times doing that. But, I would say that Eddie is a better team defender, imho.

If I had a team in the playoffs - I would want Spree because he can and has taken over games in the playoffs, Eddie never has - that I can recall.

Interesting question. I'd view it this way. On a good team, I'd rather have Jones. He brings superb complimentary skills and a great attitude to the table. If a team is struggling, Sprewell's aggresive (obviously too aggresive at times) style and personality and give that team a big lift. He could play with a winner, but my pick would be Jones.

I think Eddie will be solid as usual. 18-22ppg, 3-4 assists, and 2 steals a game.

They traded Eddie to make time for Kobe, with Eddie on the team, it's possible he would have stunted Kobe's career.
