"Rook, I am the best shooter in the league. In the league, understand? And you're up here trying to tell me something?" - Larry Bird to Reggie Miller, as Reggie tried to distract Bird between free throws.

   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired
2010-10-06

Palmer, the other training camp swingman option, impressed the team during summer league, at which time I wrote this about him:

Palmer is a 6'6 swingman from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, who averaged 19.7ppg, 5.4rpg, 2.8apg and 2.4spg in his senior season. This was enough to get him to the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, where he averaged 13 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and 4 steals per game. However, he also shot only 36% from the field in doing so, and 27% from downtown. Palmer is a stat sheet wonder, as can be seen above, and does most things except shoot threes. However, he's also extremely turnover prone, turning it over 4.3 times per game. The D stats and rebounds are nice from a guard, but if a guard can't shoot or prevent turnovers, then he's going to struggle.


Palmer averaged 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in only 17 minutes per game in summer league, shooting 57% from the field and even slashing in 50% of his threes.

One of the teams at the Portsmouth Invitational were called Norfolk Sports Club, and was coached by a pair called Mike Head and Mark Butts. You can be mature and still find that funny, right?
