We all complain about the way Scott handled Zoran, how he had problems with rotations.

Would he had been like Jefferson or more like Zoran under Scott?

I think he would had never seen time as a Net, it's the only way I take solace about selling him off to the 76ers.

Maybe Korver wouldn't have been noticed at first, but after a nice game by him the coach will pay more attention and have played him more.

I think Byron's problem with Zoran is the language barrier. Byron is so stupid and not patient enough to spend more time teaching the rookie.

If we had Korver, I think he'd be successful and blossomed under Byron.

What is his excuse with Stephan Jackson then?

Scott didn't give much leeway for rookies, so doubtful, but this is what Korver's 2nd season? I think Kidd would have used him well. I mean he would have been the only spot up shooter we have, aside from inconsistent Rogers and Harris. But Scott's leash would have been very short. I mean 2 misses, your out.

jackson had bad shot selection that pissed the coaching staff off. he hasnt seen a shot he didnt like.

byron was very selfish in a way. he wanted to play the players who have some idea of what to do. korver would have only gotten garbage time or blowout time. you see what he is doing in philly...another one that got away. i would love to get him back, but he would be coming off the bench and i doubt he would want that over philly, yet maybe he would rather play with jason/vince/rj than iverson...i think people would take jason/vince/rj more often than ai

Jackson has gotten better, but I still don't think he deserves that contract.

A good question. When I watch Korver now, there's no coach in the league who wouldn't play him. Not only is he a great shooter, he's got tremendous basketball instincts, esp. seen w/ his passing. I wonder if he would have gotten a chance to develop under Scott, though. If you couldn't come in and produce right away, Scott didn't want anything to do w/ you. Anyone know how Korver played when he first started getting time in Philly? Did he break out right away? Or was it a slower progression?

In between. He didnt stink it up but he didnt light it up either. Anyway the confidence factor and this past summer of working out as far as him lifting weights has done wonders for him. His basketball smarts were never not in question. I like Korver and hope he has a nice long career in Philly

Korver seems like a great guy, I wish he was a Net, but he looks like he's enjoying Philly. I'm not sure how much playing time he would have gotten here. Doesn't he play small forward? He and RJ may have been too much alike for him to have gotten much playing time here. But in Philly, he can fill the role.

I was so mad when the Nets sold Korver.

Still am a little mad about it to be honest. :curse:
You remember us all complaining on the board? We were so happy the best shooter in the draft fell to us in the late second round.
