Mickael Pietrus is up next. Air France never tookoff this year and now his future with the Warriors is in question as he's been rumored to be included in numerous trades. It will be an interesting summer for MP2.
At least he's not camping out on the 3 point line here. (Photo: unlimited.nba.free.fr)

Coast to Coast to finish on softie Brad Miller
MP shows us what he can do as he shakes Devin Harris with a crossover then crams in Diggler's grill:
Overall Grade: C-
Atma Brother #1 (Grade: C-)
We all had high hopes for Air France, but he struggled with injuries, the absence of Baron Davis, and poor knowledge of the game. Let's hope Mickael spends hours this offseason watching old games on NBATV and ESPN Classic. You gotta love his energy and his post game interviews though!
DJ Fuzzylogic (Grade: C)
MP2 reminds me a little of Gerald Wallace. High intensity, defensive minded, "nuclear-athleticism" and totally injury prone. However, unlike Gerald Wallace, MP2's game hasn't really improved over the last few seasons. The Bruce Bowen comparisons are even becoming a stretch after all the hype about being the French Jordan.
Fantasy Junkie (Grade: D)
Did he work on anything last offseason? I think he regressed as he spent more time outside the 3 point line and less time driving the ball to the basket. I just could not understand why he didn't use his athleticism to get by people and finish. Maybe he'll decide to work on his game this summer.
Hash (Grade: C-)
What to say about MP2... Throughout the season there were glimpses of brilliance, but at the end of the day, he seemed to only play well with Baron. Even then, peak performances were selective at best. There is potential in him for sure, however I'm afraid this season we just didn't enough of it.
YaoButtaMing (Grade: C)
What I thought would be his breakout season, just turned into a bunch of mush. No consistency or heart. Very disappointing. We didn't even get much of a trade value out of him. I'm hoping he turns it on next year. Air France was grounded like the concord!
What's your grade for MP2?
