    Ah, is this the G-mac hate page??? Seventh all time scorer in Pennsylvania history! Wow, all the people with little to no information will say who is from PA.? Are people this uninformed out in the West? I wouldn't want him playing out there with so many hate mongers ( unwarranted hatred). No, sorry, your not talking about his skill. I live two miles from him and know of his career. Obviously nobody here knows of his abilities but will try to write something convincingly backwards. I am a little more than shocked and surprised at the lack of stats to back up anyone's claim of his abilities. Anyone here know of all the records G -Mac broke at Syracuse? I know, who ever played at Syracuse right? Forget it.

    How Gerry has not made an NBA roster is unreal to me. His career he avg. 16pts 5.9assts 3turnovers and 2 steals per game in one of, if not the toughest college conference. I love Johnny Flynn to death, but I think Gerry is every bit as solid a player, a natural born leader and plays with more heart that 90% of todays NBA players. Its such a shame that he can't even land as a back-up point guard for a team. He is probably more talented than 40-50% of the guards sitting on the bench in the NBA today. Being from Maryland I would love to see the wizards sign him. Other than the always injured Gilbert Arenas, Gerry is better than any other gaurd they have. Its obsurd he can't sign on with a team.

    I totally agree with Jeff Gerry is a great player and any team would be lucky to have him. Move on is stuped and he doesn't know what he is talking about.

    PS: Lets go Syracuse lets win it all this year just like Gerry and the rest of the 2003 Syracuse team.

    Gerry is all heart and there isn't a team out there that couldn't use more of that. He was able to inspire passion in both fans and teammates when he was at Syracuse and responds to adversity as well any player I've seen play. Never will I ever stop cheering for Gerry Mcnamara.

    Time to get a real job like everyone else in the world and start a family. Move on with your life. It's not working out...I know its a dream but it's the same dream for a million other guys in the world...It was a good run....

    g-mac is a welcome addition to any nba roster. His ability and loyal following would be great boost to a norteast team which needs it like the 76 sixers.

  • any team in the nba
    Oct. 16, 2008 9:49 a.m.

    we could use gerry on our squad

  • Someone who knows
    Oct. 13, 2008 10:17 a.m.

    If not the Jazz, some NBA team could use him at backup point to run an offense, hit some shots, play 5-7 minutes a game and no doubt he is better than a lot of players at the end of the bench currently in the NBA!

    Gerry scored 35 in a game last year in Serbia, and his passing rivals Steve Nash-- nobody is a winner like him-- 55 in hs state semi(41 in first half) vs. undefeated defending state champ--6 3pters in first half against no.1-Kansas--- 43 vs. BYU in NCAA game-- 2006 Big East says it all--- He would scrap in the NBA, shoot the clutch shot and win just like Jerry Sloan did--- give him a chance!

  • 41 first half
    Oct. 2, 2008 6:58 a.m.

    41 in the first half

    43 BYU

    2006 Big East Tournament

    Just a few high highlights of the greatness that is Gerry McNamara

    GMAC deserves to get what he is working so hard for. It's a shame that there are people who wish a person failure, because of their own jealousy. Gerry has brought a lot of great times and is a great kid too!!!

    Sept. 30, 2008 6:59 p.m.

    It is a step up from playing against John Marhefka and Willie Lloyd

    I didn't know Gerry was 6 foot 2?

    Excellent Player will never make to the NBA, sorry.

    Keep trying but stay true to your roots.

  • No need for a PF
    Sept. 19, 2008 2:21 p.m.

    The Jazz do not need a new PF. Boozer is a great rebounder and a good scorer but what they need is a shot blocking center. I like Memo but come on he is terrible when it comes to interior defense. Get a shot blocker that controls the paint since that is the role of the center not the power forward. How come no one got mad when Memo disappeared in the playoffs and Booz didn't but now that Booz had a bad playoffs everyone wants him off the team. He is a very good player but not a shot blocking center and that is what the jazz lack and that is what will put them over the top.

    I didn't know Carmelo Anthony was from Utah.

    A decent power forward would be good to bring to camp!

    for the record, the jazz already have 15 guys with guaranteed contracts, son it's next to nothing on his chances on making the team

    you're not funny or witty so head out

    Sept. 18, 2008 2:16 p.m.

    What are you reading? Let me quote it for you"The 6-foot-2 McNamara was a teammate of Denver's Carmelo Anthony on Syracuse's 2003 national championship squad and finished his college career as one of Syracuse's all-time bests."

    That very clearly makes a reference to COLLEGE!!!! It does say his COLLEGE CAREER at Syracuse. Please learn how to read before you post anything.
    And if anyone has watched him they know he is a very dangerous player. He hustles and some how makes plays. Too bad he isn't bigger. I wish he was like 6-6 or so then he could play the 2-3 and that would be awesome. Too bad though.

    I think he played for Syracuse High Girls team, Richard.

    Syracuse High School didn't even exist when this article says he played for Syracuse. And they'd never match up a boys high school team against BYU's team. The author obviously doesn't know what he's talking about.

    Gerry is a better player than Ronnie Price hands down he shoots better, plays better defense, and is a hustle player

  • get a real job
    Sept. 18, 2008 10:23 a.m.

    Gerry, I hope you have a degree, you will not make the Jazz. Walmart is hiring right now. DO you look good in a blue vest?

  • John Crotty?
    Sept. 18, 2008 9:58 a.m.

    He may be the next John Crotty? How is that a good thing?

    We know he is a scrappy player, hustles and can shoot. IF he can defend other guards in the league he has a shot at making the team. But's he is only 6'2" so he'll be likely guarding the point. He is just like Jaycee Carroll. If either were a few inches taller they could be a better version of Korver.

  • He beat BYU?
    Sept. 18, 2008 9:39 a.m.

    WOW!!! What a big feat he's accomplished seeing as BYU has never advanced in the NCAA tourney since I can remeber

  • Re: Jazz Critera
    Sept. 18, 2008 12:55 a.m.

    You're an idiot. He is just there for a practice body and to play in the pre-season...who cares about his "critera." Who would you prefer by our 4th string pre-season only PG?

    After BYU took their zone defense to task, Gerry was their only chance to win and he did. Coaches use tape from that game when playing Jim Boeheim or the zone.

    I've always thought he was a late round gem that would work in the Jazz system. Runs the play, shoots the lights out and doesn't complain. Good safe option to have in your back pocket. However, his teammate Hakim Warrick is another player that would work well in the Jazz system.

    One of the best basketball players to come out of my native Northeast PA. Hope he does well.

    Let him play before being a critic. He may be the next John Crotty;)

    Sept. 17, 2008 9:30 p.m.

    He at least torched BYU and that is always a good thing. Bring him to camp!

  • Jazz Critera
    Sept. 17, 2008 9:06 p.m.

    He meets the criteria.

    Whiteness - CHECK
    Nobody else wants him - CHECK
    Plays a position we don't need help with - CHECK
    Had ONE big game against a team from Utah - CHECK

    Gimme a break. This dude is a scrub. He should be a backup in Greece or Turkey.
