07:48 AM ET 07.28 | Kirk Hinrich may serve as a steadying factor in Washington. Sons of coaches can go in two directions on the court: They can turn into obnoxious blowhards or floor generals. Hinrich, who played for his father from third grade through high school, went through Door No. 2. Father and son won the Iowa state championship in his senior season at Sioux City West High School. He then polished his game at Kansas under Roy Williams. That meant running the offense as well as hard-nosed hustling on defense. He took the Jayhawks to consecutive Final Fours; fans wept on Senior Night in 2003.

What else you gonna say about your new team and mates.....? That they stink and Agent Zero is borderline psychotic....?!

I'm clueless...????? as to why you're with the wiz

Kirk for the first time will be coming off the bench unless they trade Arenas. Kirk is a solid pg that when he is hot he can shoot the lights out but when he is cold he can build a huge house with all those bricks.

Hinrich and the 17th pick in this year draft, Kevin Seraphin traded by CHI to clear more CAP space for the FA Market of LBJ - Wade - Bosh, but got Boozer - Korver - Brewer

They traded him for nothing hoping they'd one of the top three guys but they ended up settling for Boozer...

Lmao, yea, some teams had to settle for giving Amare 100 million dollars. Not gonna say who though.

I am not sure why its bad to settle for Booze, whats the difference between him and Amare. Atleast Booze can average 20 10 for you every night and especially in the playoffs and actually plays defense. Plus he isn't over paid unlike Amare.

Lostwill point was, CHI had to settle for Boozer, after clearing CAP space for Two MAX FA,... talk.. rumors, was Wade - Bosh, or LBJ - Bosh, coming to CHI

I kno what point he was trying to prove, but my point is that the consolation prize they settled for is gonna be less productive and more expensive. So comparing the two, maybe NY should be quiet about Boozer and worry about what week Amare will hurt his knee and be at the end of the bench in a suit smiling his **** off.

You can knock Amare all you want. All I know is that his less talented team did better in the playoffs than the better team Boozer came from. Now the thing with the knee we've seen players come out of that successfully (Jason Kidd and Amare himself) and its also ended some careers - Tracy McGrady and Jamaal Mashburn. Given Amare made the all star team in the west and led his team to the western conference finals we can safely say it worked out for him. You look at Boozer and the team he had last year and you wonder what his excuse is. Any player can produce numbers but at the end of the day its the overall performance of the team that matters and that's what makes Amare better than Boozer.

Boozer has actually accomplished more than Bosh....but somehow Bosh was so much more coveted and considered as a better player during free agency. Boozer plays well against everybody except the lakers...they're just too long for him, but he scores and boards heavily on everybody else.

Yeah but how is getting a big man that runs the floor, plays defense and on every night average 20 10 consider settling. The Bulls should be blessed to be able to get him. Not too many teams have a player like Booze and Bosh

Well any pf in the league wouldn't dominate the Lakers but the fact is that Booze still played great during the series. He averaged 20pt 13reb against the Lakers twin towers. He had better stats against the Lakers compare to Amare and Garnett.

Lmao, so the fact that he had ana mazing PG in Nash feeding him the ball every play had nothing to do with it huh? You really think for a second the Felton will be able to handle the ball the way Nash can. Wake up Lost, he needs Nash to be a superstar.
