I don't know that I would agree that Parham is just as good. For one, I think there's probably 15 pounds difference there. I think Parham is a very good player but I don't think he's Brooks.
The one thing I will agree with you on is that I don't like trouble waiting to happen. I don't know if Brooks is that yet or not. I haven't heard enough to know for sure how that really works. I know this, if there are issues, we'll know all there is to know about them. Same kind of stuff was said about Canty last year and we made what appears to be a golden choice on him. I like Brooks. We will see what comes out.
