okay, i was wrong...

i spent a lot of the last two years kicking dirt on the name of Devin Harris while he was playing for the Mavericks. i'm not stupid or anything... i saw that he sometimes played well against other team's guards. but he played point, and he didn't do a good job of managing the team, and didn't seem like he would ever become a good leader. when he was traded for Jason Kidd, i was happy to see him go. as recently as early December, i told a friend "He's talented, but he will never be a star in the league..." so now Harris is 6th in the league in scoring and may wind up on the all-star team.
so anyways, i admit he's better than i gave him credit for...

Yes, vindication!!! I do agree about the skills of pre-trade Harris, but he had two things that made me look twice at him: He's one of the 3 or 4 fastest guards in the league, and he kept learning and improving.

I still wouldn't say the trade was a mistake though. I still prefer the brainy over the physically gifted.

I hated the Harris/Kidd trade with a passion. It was stupid and shortsighted. Harris' problems could have been summed up in two words: Avery Johnson.
