He looks lost out there, i dont think he really has much of a clue what he's doing....

this sucks though... two months ago we looked like a certainty for a finals appearance with the way we were playing.... now we're almost certainly going to go out to utah before the playoffs have even truly begun

Now that Melo is throwing the entire team under the bus, it's time to start wondering if the Nuggets can win with him. I have heard wild rumors of the Nuggets dealing Melo and trying to get into the Wade, James, and Bosh sweepstakes. Not that that will ever happen, but when stars get disgruntled and trade rumors start popping up, how much longer can the team (as constituted) really stay together? Well, I guess I will be like a Cubs fan......there is always next year.

It is so sad to see this team completely falling apart.

I don't really put the blame on Melo. They are fighting amongst each other and playing with zero heart.

We have been watching the demise of the Nuggets ever since coach Karl had to take his leave of absence. It's such a shame after such a great season.

Denver needs to get another Big in the draft, and there needs to be some kind of trade made, this team just doesn't have the chemistry it did last year. I love J.R. Smith when he has the hot hand, but I would like to see us get a player with a little more consistence who is a team player. This is sickening.

"I'm trying, I'm trying to beat them. I'm trying to do everything I can in my power to beat the Jazz," Anthony said Sunday. "But, at the end of the day, I need some help. I'm not sitting here pointing fingers or nothing. As a unit, we've got to do this together. I can't do this by myself."


I wouldn't call that throwing a team under the bus. And Melo is and should be a Nugg as long as he wants. He resurrected this franchise, and without him we would still be having 10 win seasons.

And by the way Dantley was the one throwing people under the bus. Melo never mentioned one person as not doing their job, Dantley called out Melo.

"I can't do this by myself" pretty much implies he is the only one doing his job. I know he was frustrated and had every right to be, but sayings like that will not go over well in the locker room or media. And yes, Dantley did not fare any better and needs to go away very soon. The imp[losion of this team is disgusting to watch.

It's time!!!
The Carmelo era needs to end in this fans perspective. The answer is no, if you think I mean just give the guy away. I'm thinking trade a superstar for a superstar.

Lol...I know this is blasphamous! Trade the only player we have who can put up 30-40 points on average a night. What the hell is the matter with me....
Im stupid...I dont know Basketball....ect..ect...

All I will say is, he has worn down this nugget team. I dont trust his Basketball I.Q. He does not know when to pass, or when he needs to drive to the whole, or when he needs to shoot that Broke ass jumper....

As for defense, well...um....talk about a pipe dream. He is a phenominal scorer. The problem is, is an pre school thinker in terms of basketball....in my opinion. Sure I will get flammed up for this. Yet I still type.

TRADE CARMELLO ANTHONY!!!

Sometimes people need to be humbled before they figure out that the way they were doing things was not the best way. Even look at his post game comments, he still doesnt get it! He is one of the leaders! Lead by example dude! Your defense was piss poor as it has been with the exception of most of the playoffs last year!

Bring me Dewayne Wade. I have a feeling he wants out of Miami...
I just dont think the kid is learning, and he is the face of the franchise!

Whole team needs to be, but i agree. He was the only one that tried sunday and still you have AD throwing him under the bus afterwards.

http://www.denverpost.com/commented/ci_14962072?source=commented-nuggets


It was the tweet re-tweeted 'round the hoop world.

After the Nuggets Game 4 loss at Utah, Nuggets guard J.R. Smith posted on Twitter: "You play selfish you lose selfish that's all I'm saying about the game!"

The Nuggets had only 13 assists in Sunday's Game 4 loss (Utah had 14 in the second half alone). Carmelo Anthony did attempt 26 shots, but he made half of them. And Smith, perhaps more than any other Nugget, is known for playing selfishly.

Nuggets guard Chauncey Billups was asked Monday about the tweet, and the team captain said: "It's frustrating to lose, and people can say what they want, but at any rate, when we win, we win together."

Asked about Smith's tweet, Nuggets acting coach Adrian Dantley
appeared visibly uncomfortable at the team's media availability Monday.

"I don't know what to say about that, there's always some comments made by a player. And usually when you lose a game, we're going to have that type of statements," said Dantley, who is filling in for George Karl, still recovering from throat and neck cancer.

Then, asked again about the Smith tweet, Dantley said: "What do you want me to say? That he shouldn't have made that comment? I don't know. He shouldn't have made that comment."

On Monday, Smith did not make himself available to the media. But after the backlash, Smith tweeted:

"yo i got the twiiter goons on my back!"

For the regular season, Denver averaged 20.9 assists per game. During the season, the Nuggets were 42-7 when they tallied 20 or more assists. The Nuggets had just 12 assists in the Game 3, also a loss.

"I don't think we've been specifically selfish, I think that the style that we play doesn't make us a high-assist volume team, like Utah is," Billups said. "The style they play, they're going to move it every time, they're going to have 25-30 assists most nights. Our system is not set for that; our system is kind of run-and-play and isolations.
You can't get a lot of assists that way."

Dantley added: "I don't know who was selfish. A lot of time it looks that way when we miss shots, when it's the same shot in the first game that we made. ...When you lose, you say some funny things, some negative things, but the main thing I told the guys (at Monday's film session) was: Stay together. I know they feel down. It felt like a funeral in there, or something like that. We just got to get their spirits up."

Numerous Twitter users posted their own tweets about Smith's "selfish" line, including one tweeter who made reference to the old phrase the pot calling the kettle black.

Smith was essential in Denver's Game 1 win, splashing four 3-pointers in the fourth quarter. But overall, he has shot 11-for-45 in the series, which Utah leads, 3-1. Game 5 is Wednesday at Pepsi Center.

Smith uses the Twitter handle @JR_Swish.


This says it all really, especially the bolded parts. His own player throws the rest of his teammates under the bus and he doesnt know what to say when asked about it? yet he's pretty quick to criticise melo for not doing a lebron james and carrying an entire team to a win by himself..

Refs make bad calls and AD does nothing, he mismanages the clock, not using timeouts that are there to break opponents momentum, his own players start criticising each other and he does basically nothing, instead throwing the best nuggets player this series under the bus.... i really dont think he's cut out for this coaching business...

This. If we don't have melo, who is going to score 30 points a game for us on a regular basis? We have been in the playoffs every year since he got here. People forget that before melo we were horrible. J.r. smith needs to go, funny to call people out for being selfish when you take 3 point shot after shot like you are in a 3 point competition. Its great when he is accurate but just look at his numbers all the games we have lost this series. Horrible.

You cant help somebody that doesnt want to be helped. I heard Sandy Clough today talking about Carmello was the only one playing hard. He said never mind the turn overs.........Can you believe that...lol...

I watch Carmello pretend to play. Maybe, and though snarkish, Maybe, just maybe the players got tired of cutting and running, while Carmello pretends to pass to them, and then pulls up for that stupid Jumper while gaurded!

I have never truly bought into Carmello. What I whitnessed in the play offs last year from him, is what I expect from him all the time now. I know he can do it, I just dont think he wants to do it! So therefore I say trade him. Its just this fans perspective. Again, Im not advocating giving him away for nothing!

Bottom line is this:

The Denver Nuggets are playing selfish basketball. They aren't getting teammates involved. I think this is the classic case of too many Chiefs, not enough Indians.

The sad reality is, we're such a good team. We'll never see it blossom until we get the "gonna get mine" and the "I'll do it myself" attitude out of the locker room.

When Chauncey waved off AD's play last week and jacked up that AWFUL shot, I thought the series might be over. When I heard the words come out of Chauncey's mouth that implied he's the best player and he should be taking the last shot, I KNEW it was over.

This team needs and misses coach Karl.

Period.

We may take game 5 at home but it will be over in 6.

Sad, unless this LR stops pointing fingers, Chantley just shuts the hell up and a miracle happens in 3 straight.

I'm tired of watching at this point. No heart. No teamwork. George knows how to work these guys and as I have already said, they have lost it since coach Karl had to leave.

So sad but true.

I don't blame Melo for saying what he said. I'm also not a Nuggets fan, so I am not as emotionally involved as a lot of you. I understand where he is coming from, from a basketball perspective. When you have guys on the court, who don't have to be defended, someone other than Melo has to step up and create scoring opportunities. Nene appears to struggle against bigger defenders, this is surprising to me (quickness). Kenyon and Birdman aren't making themselves hard to defend at all (I know you don't have a jumper, but get yourself into scoring position once in a while). JR Smith is great or terrible, this is par for the course with him, nothing new there. I think it comes down to Billups. I've never seen Billups get completely annihilated by the other teams point guard before. Not in the playoffs. It seems almost like he's becoming tentative at times now. Denver needs Billups in a bad way right now. Williams has got to be forced to work on defense.

Good win last night, can the Nuggets hang on and beat the odds?

About 60% of teams that have fallen into the 3-1 hole have lost in 5 games.

20% lose the series in 6, 15% lose in 7, and about 5% win the series.

Most Recent Examples:
2006: Phoenix over Los Angeles Lakers, 1st Round (ouch!)
1997: Miami over New York: Conference Semifinals
1995: Houston over Phoenix: Conference Semifinals

Call the damn game square. If a guy is trying to drive past with his LEFT hand and he's a right handed shooter, and he LOSES THE BALL, how is that a foul in the act of shooting? Like Scott said last night, "I guess he's gonna lay it up left handed from 19 feet away." and then the offensive foul on JR when he had his legs taken out from under him on a shot. Really?

DENVER -- Medical tests have revealed that Nuggets center Nene Hilario only hyperextended his left knee and didn't tear his ACL as feared when he went down in the first half of Denver's Game 5 win over the Utah Jazz.

An MRI on Thursday revealed no ligament or meniscus damage in his sprained knee, the team said.

Nene didn't make the team's trip to Salt Lake City for Game 6 on Friday night, but if the Nuggets win that game, there's a possibility Nene could return to action Sunday night back in Denver.

I dont see it going anymore then 5 if Deron will play. If he's out, they get sweeped. Lakers are so lucky, avoid the Mavs and Nuggets in the West, now Deron Williams may be out.. They get the Spurs or Suns in WCF, how much easier path does it get.

I am so over this force/hump/god/whatever that is keeping the Nuggets down and from succeeding. First it was George Karl our leader going down, then it was Nene getting hurt, and overall it was like the season toyed with our hearts. Giving us false hope at the beginning with the challenge for the #2 seed in the conference. The slide was unexpected with early play, but it is what we expect in Denver with all of our teams. I am tired of the other teams who have won in the past always beating us in the playoffs (Spurs, Lakers, and now the Jazz). When is our turn? It has been a long time and I am tired of waiting.

I am so proud of you boys though! Lets hope Martin can restructure his contract so we can bring in answers as this current team doesn't have the tools to succeed. Something new needs to happen and fast, we don't deserve this and I hope the Nuggets rise above this and make themselves better because of it.

I am tired of saying it every year at the end of the postseason, but...

I actually cannot believe their luck, they win the series on a last second shot (as they do)... although i'll put that down to being clutch i suppose...
mavs in one of their most promising seasons ever choke, we lose karl and do the same, Deron Williams plays the series of his life against us and hurts his arm at the very end just in time for an upcoming trip to staples... and after they dispatch Utah they either get suns who they generally own or 7th seeded San Antonio...

3 things need to happen in the offseason...

1. Kenyon MUST restructure to allow us to sign some high named FA (cough cough Bosh or maybe Wade).

2. Deal JR Smith, his childish attitude must go and we need someone more team oriented.

3. Sign Carmelo to a long term contract. He has a player option for 2011-2012 and unless you give him a good nucleus is surely gone.

and

4. Bring in some proven defenders as the high powered offense we have now doesn't seem to want to play D.

Okay that was 4, but who cares? LOL

How exactly, Orlando is better then last year, better starters, better bench, more experienced. Ariza killed Orlando in the Finals, Artest has been MIA so far in the playoffs. There bench outside of Odom is inconsistent. Jameer has been the X Factor so far and Dwight hasnt even played much yet due to the refs, we still sweep.

How many teams can sweep a team with there best player in foul trouble in all 4 games. We'll see though, i still think the Cavs/Magic if both get there goes 7 games. It would be one heck of a series.

I just find it hard to go against a Laker team as experienced and clutch as they are when the finals come around. Would love if Orlando proved me wrong, of course they can do it, one worry id have is that a series against the cavs could take a lot out of them while i expect LA to cruise through their remaining playoff games

It's down to Dantley. Dont mean to be getting on the man's back, but he really was in over his head. He may have a future in coaching yet but this team is one full of egos and prima donnas (hate to say it, but everyone here knows it) and only the very best at coaching can get it to reach its potential. Dantley is not, and just to make it more difficult he was up against one of the very best coaches in the game in Jerry Sloan. IMO this advantage Utah had in coaching far outweighed our advantage on the court when Okur and AK-47 went down.

Disappointing season for Denver. Too much talent not too get deep in the playoffs. To much to get over with K-Mart playing on one knee and Karl out. I hope this makes all the GK haters realize how good of a coach he really is. Dantley is a very good assistant coach. He can be a very good HC if he steps up and demands accountability from the players and gets a little angry once and a while. The team really is a mess right now. I hope this shows the FO that they need a true C. Nene isn't cutting it. Petro is better and has the ability to be that guy. IMO it is time to cut ties with Nene. It will be hard to find a team to deal him to because of his ridiculous contract. But it is time for him to go..... There are great pieces already in place on this team as far as Chauncey and Melo. Smith needs to step up. AA was a great addition and Lawson is the future. Petro IMO is the missing piece. We need another banger off the bench as well. If the team doesn't do demonstrably better next year then it is time to blow things up.

"SALT LAKE CITY — In the biggest moments of the most critical game of the Nuggets' season, veteran guard J.R. Smith sat on the bench and pouted Friday night.

In another display of no regard to authority that has peppered Smith's time in Denver, he sat on the very end of the bench and pretty much remained there from 2:35 in the third quarter to 4:23 in the fourth quarter, when Nuggets acting head coach Adrian Dantley put him in the game as the team searched for any kind of a quick offensive spark.

Smith sat on the end of the bench during every timeout during that time — at 8:23 in the fourth quarter and at 6:00 in the fourth as well.

He did not get up and participate in huddles. He didn't respond when teammates and assistant coach Jamahl Mosley went over to get him engaged in the game.

Asked why he acted in that manner, Smith said, "I'm not really sure." Asked what frustrated him that much, Smith said, "The whole game, pretty much."

He did get up once to yell observations to Chauncey Billups at one point during the fourth quarter.

Then he resumed his seat at the end of the bench. Even when he was put back in the game, on the next timeout Smith barely listened, instead choosing to stay on the outskirts of the huddle, while the other four who were in the game sat within earshot of Dantley.

Dantley said he was unaware of Smith's sulking.

"I didn't see what happened with J.R.," Dantley said. "He didn't get in an argument with me."

Smith finished Game 6 of the Jazz series with three points. He hit 1-of-4 shots. He missed all three of his 3-point attempts. He is going into the last year of a three-year contract next season and said he still wants to be part of the core of the Nuggets.

"Yeah," Smith said. "I don't want to go anywhere."

My top 8 in the west WAS BEFORE THE PLAYOFFS STARTED, and I passed the comment that I would not make any changes at this point of the playoffs to the list. I gave the Spurs the top seat due to how they finished the season and how Ginobili & Parker impacted their line ups going into the play-offs

Knicks really putting their eggs in the one basket with LeBron.... what are they gonna do if he decides he'll stay with the Cavs?

Bosh wont be a Laker unless he signs for less then he's worth. The lakers will already have problems unloading expiring contracts such as

Morrison,Farmar,Sasha,Luke

I expect the lakers to over hall the bench completely next year and some how have a hard time thinking Bosh will fit as one of the pieces

The way Farmar talks and the type of satellite signal his ears get cracks me up!

Dude is a clown!

I talked with my buddy Scott Hastings today and we talked about the Nuggets bench...

He pretty much said, "Before the team does anything they need to sit down and think about where they are at right now, what kind of team they want to be." They need to get the right pieces to become a great team!

Starting with bench:

Last year the Nuggets bench was so amazing!

I miss LK!

So here is what I think:

Trade/Dump:
JR,Birdman, Malik, Nene, AC

Get:
Bosh/Stoudemire?

Keep:
Lawson,Afflalo,Melo,Billups,Petro,Graham, Kenyon, Koby Karl.

Starters:
Billups/Lawson
Afflalo/Karl
Carmelo/Graham
Stoudemire/Kenyon
Bosh/Petro

Projected Bench:
Lawson,Karl,Graham,Kenyon,Petro

Also would like LK back...

You gotta remember with Bosh, his natural position is Power Foward. You gotta keep Nene for the center position. Stoudemire is a "need to win now" type of player. Not sure how much he has left after this year and another 82 games next season. I would much rather see K-Mart get his walking papers and have a Bosh or a Stoudemire in the starting line up. (how much does he put against the cap?)

I think its time for the nuggets to make a decision on if they can compete for a title with what they have now, if not its time to get remaining value for the older vets like Billups. Im sure he has some good trade value left in him and Lawson would make a solid starter.

Again, size is the problem in the west. Who can match up with the lakers? Teams need to go big and at this point the FA center situation is very meek.

I like your moves but the team still needs size and a true center.

I agree there!

Billups is questionable at best. He seemed to have lost his legs and overall smartness of the game of basketball towards the end of the year. Instead of playing like a leader he played like a rookie and made rookie mistakes. Team has to start from scratch, keep players that will bloom this franchise: Carmelo,Afflalo,Lawson,Petro,Graham,Nene.

I like JR but I despise him too. You know what I mean. He is a question mark.

Birdman is as good as gone, Malik Allen/AC/Balkman are 0 contributors.

Keep: Melo/Billups/Lawson/Petro/Graham/Nene/Afflalo

Starters: Billups/Afflalo/Melo/Nene/Petro

Bench: Lawson/Karl/Graham

PF/C positions for bench need filled in... Hopefully Denver does well with offseason moves!

Dantley can be a great HC when he figures out how to become a HC instead of an assistant.

I hate Jeff Van Gundy, I don't want him anywhere near the Nuggets. I would really like Scott though. Maybe if the Cavs don't win a title and Mike Brown gets fired then I would definitely like him. Sam Mitchell and Terry Porter would be good choices as well. I heard in the Post that Larry Brown may be out in Charlotte as well.

Denver's too small of a basketball Market for those two. Nugget season ticket holders would also have a major problem seeing a 20% - 30% ticket increase.

James needs to go where the moneys at. Under the current bargaining agreement, the max amount he can make is 16mil a year for his services. Denver does not have the marketing opportunities like Miami,Los Angeles or New York to keep James financially interested due to the cap on his sallary.

didnt we sign Kenyon Martin to a $90 something million dollar contract at one point....

Denver Absolutely has a market for players. Only, Wade and Carmelo probably wont be on the same team. Personaly, I dont think Melo could handle another scorer on this team that plays a similar role as him, but thats just me and my own bias I guess!

I am advocating us going after Wade in a trade player for player. Melo for Wade. Do I think it would happen, ummm no. I wanted Wade out of the draft that year, just to show you how much I admire him!

DENVER (AP) -- Nuggets coach George Karl has started showing up at work on occasion and getting out more as he slowly recovers from throat cancer and its complications.

Kim Van Deraa, Karl's life partner and mother of their 5-year-old daughter, wrote in her blog Tuesday that Karl's energy level is slowly rising and that he is still using a feeding tube for most of his nutrition but occasionally eats peaches.

"He has tried a few other things which usually ended with - I'm not ready for that!" Van Deraa wrote.

Van Deraa wrote that Karl is getting out to more places than just his doctor's office, where he frequently has to go to make sure his blood-thinning medication levels are right. Karl has twice been hospitalized with blood clots in his legs or lungs following his six-week radiation and chemotherapy treatment.

"He is in good spirits which is the most important thing!!!" Van Deraa wrote. "He also lost approximately 40 lbs which might not be great for his recovery process right now but once he is feeling better this will help his energy and activity level."

Karl, who turned 59 last week, has said he intends to return to coaching later this summer, health permitting.

Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke said Karl's health is the organization's No. 1 priority this offseason. The Nuggets, under acting coach Adrian Dantley, were eliminated by the Utah Jazz in the first round of the playoffs. The Nuggets were 42-21 under Karl, 13-12 under Dantley.

This is Karl's second bout with cancer. He beat prostate cancer several years ago. His son, Coby, who plays for the Nuggets, is a thyroid cancer survivor."

I think Amare Stoudemire will be VERY available at MLE after the Lakers/Suns series is over. Amare has shown he is not worth more then then 7mil a year and will be a steal with his media comments and lack of effort on the defensive end. (You cant blame the guy, Run and Gun for 82 games plus 2 rounds of the playoffs. I would be quite angry running up and down the court, not getting the touches I need for my team to win)

I honestly believe in any other organized system then the Suns "Gimmick Offense" he will excel and become an impact player for another 3 years in the CORRECT SYSTEM. (Inside out basketball)

Why im posting this is I feel Denver is the perfect fit. Let Anderson and Smith walk, pick up Amare. Denver now has another big to compete.I was hoping Cory/Atwn or another Die Hard could work out the numbers since you guys know your teams salary. Would this work with your current cap?

What do you think? Do you also agree that Amare (because of the Laker Series) is worth no more the MLE?

If we signed Amare for 7-9 mill it would work. JR is slated to get 6 million next year and Birdman is slated to get 4 million. Plus we get 3 million freed up from Antonio McDyess, and we have our MLE.

So letting JR and Birdman walk would free up about 9 million, and with McDyess and the MLE we will have about 18 million to spend on our roster. (Unless Kroenke allows us to spend more).

We will probably resign Petro and Graham. But with them plus Amare that would spend around 13-15 million. So we would need the remaining 3 million to fill the roster.

However if we sign Amare we probably could trade off Nene for some sort of reserve scoring guard and some cash. Then use that 11 million freed by Nene to go sign Brendon Haywood, or some other Defensive Center.

But honestly Amare is out of our price range. If we unload Nene I'd like to take a look at Amare and Boozer.



On a side note



Report: Nuggets in talks to extend Carmelo Anthony
By Matt Moore
The Denver Nuggets aren't going to wait around to find out if they're going to be Cleveland'd or Toronto'd next summer when Carmelo Anthony hits the free agent market a year behind his famous friends.

Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that the Nuggets have scheduled face to face meetings with Melo's representatives in the next few weeks to begin preliminary discussions of a contract extension for the All-Star Forward The move symbolizes an aggressive maneuver on the part of the Nuggets to avoid Melo departing in free agency if things with the Nuggets were to go south.

It'll be interesting to see how this unfolds from two angles. First, it'll be telling to see how Melo handles this, with Washington's acquisition of the number one overall pick and interest in the town he grew up in picking back up. Additionally, Melo's agent is Leon Rose, who you may have heard also represents LeBron James. So Rose is likely to be preoccupied the next few weeks managing the biggest free agent contract in the history of the NBA.

Still, good for the Nuggets seeking to avoid this disaster. Melo's been willing in the past to forsake his options in pursuit of financial stability. Signing another long-term extension would further that approach and create a safety net for the Nuggets going forward. Melo's not looking to be a global icon. He just wants to make money and play basketball, it would seem.

And the Nuggets want to be the ones paying him to play basketball. They're reaching out early to keep that position.

I do agree that Denver isn't too small of a market for Lebron, but Denver won't trade Melo. He is definitely staying here.

And in my opinion, that's to bad. I just keep re living the fakeness of him in my opinion. In my opinion, and it I admit its only this fans perspective, I have grown tired of his attitude. When I say attitude, I mean him not knowing when to shoot, when to pass, when to foul ect..ect....

Im tired of what I perceive the fake defense. The fake pass. Most of all, that ridiculous jumper at ill advised times. It sucks too, because when he's on, its mostly good. Still, I dont even get happy when he is on, as I think it perpetuates his not so smart play, or lazy play.

Just being honest. If he is on with that jumper, to me it can be even worse. Its just lazy sometimes. Like he just doesnt want to do the mental work. Which is fine, but the anticipation I have for him growing into what I think he can be if he applied himself....well lets just say, it's gone.

I don't think he will ever realize how good he can be. Well, I dont think he will relize that in DENVER! Sometimes change is good! My pops used to always talk about wasted talent. Tragically, I see a little bit of that in Melo.

Just how I see it. While he is a Nugget, I will support him, it's only I want more tho! I think its time!

I think its time!Wouldn't it suck for us to trade Melo away for him only to go out on another team with a chip on his shoulder and lead them to a championship? I have my frustrations with Melo too but he has grown up a bit, and I still think he can develop into that complete player to take us to that next level.

I also tend to think much of his decision making might be in part because he doesn't trust a lot of his supporting cast. I would be more down for changing some of the pieces around Melo and giving him another few years (like they appear to be trying to do) to show us if he really can develop into that player to win us a championship. It was just a year ago that he was playing great in the WCF finals against Kobe... he is a Super Star and the face of the franchise, don't give up on him, yet.
