To be perfectly honest, I would like to convey a quick message.
This concerns Peja, and I'm sure that many Mavericks fans agree with em when I say this.
Lately, I haven't been shy to voice my outrage at Peja wearing a Mavs uniform, and I have had several people agree with me on this site and via e-mail conversations and such. The truth is, I am ready to be mature and eat my words, granted Carslile is able to keep his nerve and continue to do what he does.
Peja is instant offense. However, he can't play defense, hurting us long run. If all Peja is going to do is play 6-8 minutes in the first quarter, maybe a few here and there in the 2nd, and another 6 in the 3rd, I'm ready to accept him. So, if he is to be a 12-14 minute a game* player, I am very okay having him here.
However, I am predicting this: Peja will have a few good games, and thus will make Carslile want to play him in the 20's consistently, and maybe later on in the season get a few 30 minute a game days. If that starts to be consistent, I can say I will put back on my Peja-hate hat.
That's all I have to say. I am aware that nobody cares about my opinion, but surprisingly I have several people who think the exact same way, so don't be too quick to criticize.
Now, as always,
*If he has games like he did recently, then heck play the guy 25 minutes, just not on a consistent basis, only when he hits several shots early without several misses.
