I seem to recall Shelley's last career year being six years ago, when he scored 10 points.
RJ's was last year, for 57 points.
Peca, yes. Manny, no.
You completely missed the point w.r.t Umberger and Shelley, which is downright hilarious. Fans see a good teammate, a hard worker and an all around good guy. This makes them tend to forget the negative aspects of said player (granted there's a lot more of those with Jody than with RJ).
It was a comparison of their relationship with fans. Tell me you can't see people begging for us to bring RJ in as a color commentator?
Let me say that I love having RJ on this team, and I love his production. I don't love his contract.
