More I watch this guy the more I'm starting not to like him. He does try to play hard, he tries to play strong defense but I think he's undersized, even for a SG and then, isn't a shooting guard supposed to be able to shoot?
Do the Knicks keep him on the bench when Shuppert returns, or does he leave? I'm tired of him launching 3-pointers and missing and can't figure out how a guy who can't hit a free throw has the guts to keep launching 3's. Why isn't Woodson talking to him about that nonsense?
Brewer is not an undersized SG. He's a 6'7 SF who plays very good D. Yes, he's not shooting the ball too well so far this season but he's pretty much a .500 shooter for his career and mostly a role player.
Loved the way he was playing earlier in the year but he has become an offense liability as of late. Sort of like playing with Jared Jeffries out there last year, its 4 on 5 when we are on offense with him on the floor. I'm honestly not expecting him to get any playing time when Shumpert is healthy again.
I think he has shown himself to be a good fit in the system with lots of back door cuts, and put back scores. He rebounds decent, and is a solid defender. I think his tailing offensive play of late strengthens my previous argument for Stat being the starter when he returns, but I love the idea of Brewer off the bench with Kidd, Novak, Smith, and Wallace/Thomas/or Camby.
As a Thunder fan, I appreciate hearing your comments about Ronnie Brewer. He saw his first action tonight as a member of the Thunder. Your comments are why I see why we got him. A good physical defender. We can get points from the other guys. He sure seems like a big man for a point guard though. He will probably be third string for the Thunder, perhaps fourth behind Westbrook, Reggie Jackson, and even Derek Fisher (He brought his AARP card back to OKC).
LOL.....whats up skibum. Brewer is probably even more of a SF than anything but his position will likely be determined by who he's defending. He's not much of an offensive threat although he has his moments.
