I always used to feel sorry for Shelden Williams and late Juwan Howard.

Late Juwan Howard?  I just googled him to see if he had passed away (he hasn't).  Why bring up these two players?

Was that Shelden Williams? He only played 5 seasons IIRC

I used to also but Howard wound up with 2 rings and a coaching career.
If we can't get Davis, Gobert, Embiid, or any other All-NBA Big, I think it wise to have a player in a suit - and at practice - that can hold younger players in check. Sort of exactly like what Kyrie said. Someone (doesn't have to be Noah) to help develop Robert Williams. It's too bad we didn't get Tyson Chandler. I'd like it to be someone better than Noah that gives us minutes. But think about who the championship Centers were dating back to 2010. Bynum, Chandler, Splitter, Chris Anderson, Bogut, Thompson, Pachulia, and McGee. We're loaded with wings and guards. Center is thin. If we can't land a Star why not sign an established veteran?

LOL Alrighty then, I guess me suggesting taking a look at Noah didn't go over too well.

What's the hesitation to playing Williams? Throw him in there and let him make mistakes now. He's a jumping jack who can grab rebounds and change shots. I don't get it...so what if he fouls out. I think we should go to him before Yabo. Just saying

I'd rather pick Big Baby over Noah.

I don't feel sorry for Howard either.  He wasn't the same player late in his career, but good enough that teams kept him employed at age 39.  The guy played 19 NBA seasons earning $150 million.  I wish I had it so rough.

Why do people here dislike Noah so much?  I know he didn't play well a couple years ago, but he was also battling injuries. 

He's only 33 and should be healthy and well rested.




When he was healthy and playing well, I liked his game, he had a special passion. He hasn't been healthy in three years because his body is breaking down. Age doesn't matter. He can't stay healthy any longer.

Image updated to elaborate on his current skills on the defensive side.

A chef shouldn't be burning toast.   ;)

Seriously, how can people know he's toast when he hasn't played in so long and when he did he was batting injuries?

 Good question.  Can you trust the judgment of NBA coaches? GMís?

I myself havenít seen him even play in an NBA game in a long time,  so Iím only going on what teams think of him; and while I have a high opinion of my own scouting prowess (!), NBA teams actually do pretty much know what theyíre doing.  There doesnít appear to be any kind of market for him, and the Knicks simply gave up and paid him to go away. New York stretched him after taking a look this October, so they, at least, donít think that he could even make their roster. So itís likely, as I said before, that he doesnít have a lot to offer at this point.

He would have to replace someone else if he signed with the Celtics, so it doesnít make sense to bring him in for his wisdom and experience, or whatever. Boston has several bigs that can contribute now or have potential, given development; so I put the chances of this happening at zero.

GH is having hard time getting back in rhythm but yeah let's go try find out if Noah after 2 3 years of inactivity has anything left.

There are suggestions to bench GH or even send him to gleague after 10 games but they will show patience to Noah because 5 years ago he was a good player but since then he has played 9 games?
