Wow obviously you don't know Damien Wilkins


He's actually pretty good. Has all the scoring instincts. And now this year is getting the chance to show how good he is. He was solid last year too.

And did you watch the game? All the shots he was making? There were a lot of tough shots he made, and he made some great moves at times too. And his jump shot is becoming pretty reliable.


Damien Wilkins is a pretty good player.

Damien Wilkins is a pretty good player.

Most any player given the minutes can produce the same numbers that Damin Wilkins produces. I saw what he did, but I've seen mediocre player after mediocre player have career games against Atlanta. It's been this way for 7-8 years.

If he was pretty good he wouldn't have the mediocre career numbers that he has. A 6'6 guard that averages 2 rebounds per game? Not all that impressive.

Ok tell me how many weak players have scored 40pts in a game then.

And why do you keep saying he averages 2rpg? He averages 5rpg now, and thats good for a 6"6 player. Careerwise he still might be weak, but right now he is solid to good. And right now he is averaging 5rpg. And I've seen him play a lot, he has the scorers instinct and is pretty good. He can shoot too now.
Solid defender as well

When Damien Wilkins sniffs 40 points against another team I will give him due. The Hawks are the worst franchise in the NBA and possibly in sports. Sure he has some bloated numbers now. Who is going to get playing time over him? Ray and RL are gone.

If you would have spent the last decade watching Hawk games like I have, you would too be in disbelief about how many career nights the Hawks allow.

Oh boo hoo. The Kings always gave up many points to certain players because they didn't play enough D. At least Atlanta has a reason... they suck. The Kings of 2002 were just bad at D.

You know how many people have had career nights against Sacramento? MILLIONS. Even the opposing fans score against Sacramento.
