Player-by-Player: Dan Dickau

New, comments

Today's debate subject is Dan Dickau.  Dan's flying a little below the radar so we couldn't get true celebrity guests to come in.  We're making due with quasi celebrities from right here at Blazersedge.  To start things off it's not other than...that's right...your friendly blogger DAVE!

                            

I'm not even going to try to be funny like the guest commentators we've had.  That's not my strength.  I'm supposed to argue the "pro" side and admittedly that's a little hard to do given Dan's production this year.  There are a lot of things I'm not in love with.  I'm not in love with his .358 overall field goal percentage or his .262 clip from beyond the arc.  Neither his height nor his defense make me swoon.  And I especially don't like how we signed him up to be a point guard but the whole second half of the season he came in and started jacking up shots.  However you have to say this for him...he does make stuff happen.  I mean, what else is he going to do?  A lot of guys who get such limited, sporadic minutes fade into the hardwood when they do get a chance to play.  Dan knows how to play, how to push it, and where to get his shots up (even if they sometimes come more frequently than I'd like to see).  If he's going down he's not going to go down quietly.  He's going to make an imprint.  More people should have that kind of heart and drive.  I can absolutely respect that.  Also you have to admit that when he's on Danger Dan can really light it up.  If he were a little bit taller or a better defender he might be able to fill an instant offense role.  Alas I doubt that's in the cards.  My guess is if he got more minutes we'd see more good things from him but I don't think there's going to be a ton of minutes for him on this team, which probably makes him unhappy.  It wouldn't hurt a bit to keep him on the team but a change of scenery may leave everybody more satisfied.

And now with the con side...Fatty!!!
