Javaris Crittenton will go to Bobcats camp

Thumbnail image for bobcats_logo.jpgJavaris Crittenton wants to go to back to being the point guard with so much promise. He wants to move beyond being the other guy in the Gilbert Arenas gun debacle.

The Charlotte Bobcats are giving him a chance — he has been given an invite to their training camp, according to the Washington Post.

That he got a chance is big. Everyone remembers that Crittenton was suspended because of the gun charge. What everyone forgets is that he was going to miss the season (or most of it) with a severe ankle injury anyway.

Now he has to prove that he is really back. Crittenton has some skills, he is very quick (he needs to show he still has that) with pretty good handles. He can get to the rim and finish. He needs to prove his game has matured, that he no longer is a turnover machine, that he can knock down a jumper.

The Bobcats could use another point guard. Crittenton needs to prove on the court and to Larry Brown that he can be that guy.

    Glad to see Javaris getting another team. He’s a great kid who just made a bad mistake. We all make mistakes, and nobody’s perfect. I’m just happy he’s getting a second chance. Basketball wise, he’s a very young and talented point guard. He’s a herky jerky guard who can be a scorer or pure playmaker. He’s got a nice confidence/swagger to his game. He’s got great leaping ability, quickness and strength to get to the rim. He’s also a very good ball-handler and passer. He’s like a poor man’s Steve Francis. He still needs to improve his jump shot, decision making and defense a little bit. Sky’s the Limit. Hope he makes the team, and good luck to him and Darius Miles, who are my two favorites to make the team.
