From what I can gather from the game thread, a few people were clamoring for his return to the court after he proved he could play some defense against the Hawks tonight. He had a couple of nice blocks and seemed to bother Joe Johnson a little bit.
In my opinion, I always liked JJ, even when he was playing way to fast for his own good (and sucking). Maybe it's because I like point-forwards.. and JJ looks like he could be a decent one. He has shown to have adept passing skills. He works hard on the defensive end, or he did tonight anyway. He can shoot threes (and has shown a general willingness to do so, unlike foot-on-the-line Luol, who don't get me wrong, I like[him, not the foot... blahblahblah]) and runs the floor well.
If I were Vinny (thankfully, I'm not), I would take all of ParD'oh!'s minutes and give them to JJ to allow him to develop on his own, on the court, playing through his mistakes while everyone begins to fall in love with him.
What do you think? Did you warm up a little bit to the seemingly forgotten 1st rounder?
