Murph Back in the Bay

Let's not get ahead of ourselves and assume that Troy Murphy will not produce for the Warriors. IF the Warriors do decide to buy out his contract, that would be pretty dumb. One reason is because I believe he still has some "umpf" in the tank. Let's remember what he contributed to the Warriors when he was here. 

He was one of the top Power Forwards and was considered a snub for the All-Star team in the04-05 season. He did average 15 points a game including the fact he averaged out to grab 11 rebounds per game. And let's remember, this guy can shoot! His signature step back jumper and his range from beyond the arch would be perfect in the "Nellie-System".  

He would be pretty good for being a role player just in case David Lee needs a sub, Murph is right there to fill in that roll. Having Murph sub in for Lee would be like Lee never left the court. They both have decent perimeter shooting, I give the edge to Murphy since he can shoot it from beyond the arch, they both can rebound and be physical in the paint. 

He is still young. His years in the Pacers organization didn't disappoint since he still kept producing the same averages out there till he signed with the New Jersey Nets. Unfortunately he caught them at the rebuilding stage and they drafted Brook Lopez and Derrick Favors. His career lows were this year as he averaged only 3 points a game. 

So what do you guys think? A good role player or even more interesting, have him start with Lee? Oh man, the playoff hunt just got interesting too with the latest trade deals having the Jazz and Nuggets deal their superstars. 

Do I hear a "We Believe Part 2" run for the Playoffs?
