Apparently Bucks efforted Camby last summer


According to Yahoo Sports, Bucks General Manager John Hammond made inquiries with the Denver Nuggets last summer regarding the availiability of Marcus Camby. Unfortunately, Yahoo's report doesn't explain what the Bucks offered, or why the Nuggets rejected the Bucks overtures and dealt Camby to the Clippers instead. They really got nothing in return from Los Angeles, so their motives are puzzling.

I almost wish I didn't read that. What a HUGE addition Camby would have been. Ohh!

But I'm glad I did read it, because it tells me something good about John Hammond. He's aware of what the team needs and he apparently tried to provide it with what would have been an enormous addition. The team is under adult leadership now.

But damn it. Can you imagine the lineup?

No, I'm just going to let it go.

Perhaps the biggest failing of Berri's methods and those using similar methodologies (you) is the notion that Camby is a top player in the NBA. He's good, not great. He's the king of weak-side help. He cheats too much and lets opposing centers go off.

Denver hasn't missed a beat. Clips are in the toilet. Individual defensive rebounds should not be weighed so heavily.

Clippers said they are looking to trade Camby by deadline. We might bite on it.

If this is true, obviously Hammond would want MC to play along side Bogut, not start in his place. And secondly, MC would fill the huge void of lack of shot blocking on this team and he'd make a quality complement to the Buck's interior. It's about shot blocking and interior defense!!!
