All I can say is that if he won the B&f it doesn't say much for the GCS, he was horrible when he played for us, sometimes people have short memories
He was a powderpuff when he played for us.

Like most big guys it takes years to come good which he has now.

But winning GC B&F would be like finishing 12th in our B&F

None of us has a crystal ball, time waits for no one and he had been on the list for some time without realizing his true potential. At times you have to pull the plug and say enough.

No one can say before hand that it's the right or wrong call but players can't be left on the list perpetually on 'potential'.
It wasn't our call, Witts asked to be traded.

And he was always going to be a very good ruckman.

Always liked Witts and thought we got absolutely robbed in that trade. Its funny how things work out though.. suppose Witts comes on a little sooner in his development and we might have seen our ruck needs filled and overlooked Grundy. All worked out for the best though.

Well done Jarrod.

Has been awesome for the Suns. Exactly what they need more of.

And yes we got ripped on this trade, but in the end Grundy's an AA and Jarrod is now a bnf.

So for me win/win.

That is a Good Point and I had that Thought go in my head when Reading here. What Happened IF Witts came on Faster and did not get Injured.

Could we have Traded Grundy instead?
