Andrei Kirilenko: Overrated

onthebuzzer.com ak47After an offseason of turmoil and unhappiness, Andrei Kirilenko, AK-47, returned to his “beloved” Jazz for the start of the season and call me a cynic, but I am very unimpressed by the numbers he’s put up. Maybe I caught him on a bad night but on Wednesday night, AK -47 was misfiring all game, going 1-6 for 6 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and 1 block in 33 minutes. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been following this guy for years, he’s a stat filler and a fantasy owner’s dream, or at least he used to be. But I guess I’m just not impressed anymore. At 26 years of age, this guy has a world of potential but something tells me he’s not going to reach it in Utah.  He needs a change of scenery, maybe LA, maybe Chicago?  This guy’s been battling with management for a while now and while the bickering has subsided, it just might be the time to trade him before his stock plummets even more… Just a thought.

And if you need more proof, check out the post on the Cavs/Pistons game. (S)he goes on to rip the Cavs, but don’t play the injured card. They were without LeBron. Amazing. […]
