    I thought we got rid of Andrei

    What is it about Gordon Kirilenko that makes me cringe half the time? When he shoots the ball I have no confidence he will make it. When he drives I'm sure he will lose the ball. He does make some nice off the ball blocks and seems to be a better one on one defender than he gets credit for. Sounds a lot like Andrei. I realize Gordon is young but let's hope he continues to develop. At least we can say we aren't paying him 17M.

    That's the only part I had a problem with regarding AK.

    If Gordon could be anywhere near the defensive player AK was I would be very excited. I like Hayward but while he is probably as good at man to man defense than Andrei he's not close to as good at help defense.

    If Hayward were putting up these stats this year he'd get a max

    You mean AK in the early years right? I really wasn't impressed with his every day performance later in his career with us.

    Please don't compare Hayward to AK. He is not even close to his level and never be as good as AK was or is.
    People should stop with unrealistic expectations for Hayward to turn into Ginobili, Hornacek or AK. Forget about it.
    Learning begins when you do not know the answer.

    Nope I meant all of Ak. The only real problem I ever had with AK was the salary.

    No he wouldn't. That's not max player stats. It wasn't when AK signed his either. I never liked that contract and I was very disappointed when they signed it.

    Hayward needs to start missing half of every season, crying to the media, complaining about his role, and disrespecting his hall of fame coach in public (or saying some no name coach in Europe would be better). Then we can compare him to AK.

    Ah, Hayward just plays video games instead of reading Russian novels. Effect is the same.
