J.J. Barea’s Time In The Spotlight

12.08.08 9 years ago

I’ve been watching Jose Juan Barea since his time at Northeastern, and I’ve always been a fan. The 6-foot Puerto Rican point guard plays hard, sometimes plays dirty, but is always a threat out on the floor.

Although Barea’s spot in the new “Three J’s” for the Mavericks alongside Jason Kidd and Jason Terry will most likely be short-lived, he’s loving every second of it.

“I just like to be out there,” Barea said. “J-Ho needs to get back so I can come off the bench again.” Barea is averaging 20 points and four assists in two consecutive starts with both Howard and Antoine Wright sidelined.

After writing them off, Dallas has won nine of their last 10 games and is back in the mix of the Western Conference playoff hunt.

While I was surprised to see him still on the roster during the preseason, do you think Barea has a spot in this League?
