He (Lopez) seems solid and plays hard. He also has upside potential. I on the other hand don't believe that the Suns should just without any reservations match any offer made to Lopez. He has not showed me that much.

That's one fine pic of Lopez.

They had to work hard to get it in the 14 MPG he's on the floor...

Don't understand why teams match offer sheets to guys that they don't use.

And Bill Cartwright will be fine... He'll be Coaching with Patrick in Charlotte.

His contract should be as good or better than Luke Walton's.

and your point is? as for cartwright's ring, he was just riding MJ's coat tails. Every player that played with MJ, Magic, or Bill Russel has a ring. Even the coaches got rings. LOL

Has anyone seen a team play with as much toughness and heart as the C's?

Even some haters gotta see that. GO KG!!!

Well said.

Also, don't like the way the article tries to hang it on Cartwright that it is his fault Lopez is not better. You can lead a horse to water ...
