How much do you miss Jason Richardson??

on a scale of 1-10. Every time I see the Suns play I think about Richardson in being in Charlotte

The problem is that Richardson never was a #1 go-to type of player that the Bobcats needed (and still need IMO) and still isn't known for his defense. He is fantastic as a 3rd option behind Nash/Amare in a high octane offense. I think the Cats have the right guys as a 2 + 3 option (Wallace and Jack) but they've got to find that #1 guy. The problem is, where do you find him with one of the highest profile free agent years in history where lots of teams are going to be competing for the Wades, Lebrons, Johnsons, and Bosh's of the world, and no draft picks?

I don't particularly miss him, he wasn't all that special in Charlotte. Of course with a different set of events, starting with the '08 draft, I think he could have been a piece to the puzzle that would have still gotten us to the playoffs this year.

Yeah, he wilted when the team was laid on his shoulders.

He plays with Steve Nash now who gets his guys great looks at the basket and jumpshots in their sweet spots. Different set of circumstances here than what they got in Phoenix. Add on that he never really seemed to really want to be here, I'd say no. I'm happy with Jax.

He's a terrific athlete, but like many have said, not a number one option. He plays with one of the best PG's in the leage in a fastbreak offense. Athletes like him can put up numbers in situations like that. It's a great fit for him. He's still very streaky though, and that was the main problem I had with him at Charlotte. He'll go for 40 one night and then shoot 3-20 the next.

With the Los Suns, he has Steve Nash.

@ the Cats he had Raymond Felton....

That was the distinguishing difference.
