2nd Cyclone to win the award (Fizer, 2006).
I can't believe that there isn't a team in the NBA that could use him.
Here's to hoping he gets a shot in the NBA... That's what the D-League was originally supposed to be for, but has never panned out to do that.
that is kind of like banging the girl at the bar that is by herself at 3 a.m. it's alright i guess, but not something you are going to brag about to your friends.
@draftexpress had a few tweets about Stinson/NBA today:
What does Curtis Stinson--a guy no team in the NBA or Europe has any interest in--winning MVP of the D-League, say about the D-League?
Stinson played in Europe a couple of times but couldn't adjust his game, or mentality enough, so he was cut. This summer had zero offers.
Wasn't trying to bag on Stinson. Just pointing out how little the stats & style that's played in the D-League translates to real basketball.
Was at the game tonight and he got his award before the game, but seemed like the lower tier refs were out to prove they were "in charge"!! He got absolutely no calls all night. And for the record, I love Curtis to death but..... he plays no defense and it really showed tonight. Didn't really hustle back on D after no calls either, and I think that is why he's not in the pros now.
Undisciplined, no defense...sounds like he'd work well for the Knicks with Billups out.
People can say there is no defense, but I'd love to see that person draw up a defense that can stop a team with at least two guys that probably should be double teamed every touch and three more guys that can hit an open shot when given to them.
