Roster Regrets (Specifically regarding James Jones)


Did anyone -- besides me -- watch the Heat/Celtics game yesterday or read the box score this morning and flinch when they saw James Jones' performance?  5-7 from three point range.  10 of 10 from the free throw line. 

I was sorry to see him go when he left Portland -- seemed like a good guy and a hard worker -- and I was thrilled when he won the three-point shooting contest (that was corrective justice, he should've been invited to compete the year he was a Blazer) -- but this morning in particular I am seriously feeling regretful about the Blazers' decision to let him go.  It seemed like a mutual and amicable parting of the ways... and hindsight is 20/20... but man...  just think what we could have done against the Mavs with Jones in the line up!

Seems like maybe part of the reason the Blazers didn't pursue him when he became a free agent was concerns about the road worthiness of his knees...?  But he played 28 minutes yesterday!  I guess it's next to impossible to predict what a knee is gonna do over time (understatement)...
