Good signing was hoping he would stay as one 1. He's no longer a rookie and has that experience of the league 2. Had a full pre season so could hit the ground running!! But I wish him all the best got himself a deal in a competitive market!
I must confess that when I saw the Header that Mr.Tall used, I was hoping for Donte Nicholas! Payne didn't make a huge impression from what I saw of him live and on LBTV. But I'm encouraged the Raiders faithful seem to like him. What would Raiders fans describe as his strengths, and his style of play?
I rated him as a player. He got stronger / better as the season went on. He bailed us out of the **** in a few games and I would’ve liked to see him re-sign at Plymouth. Hopefully PJ has replaced him with an upgrade. Did PJ want him back but Rocks offered a better deal / more cash? Maybe Payne didn’t enjoy his time at Plymouth and didn’t want to return? Guess we will never know.
At first i was a bit meh with this one. Then i thought he was 3rd option on a raiders team whos offence focused on hassan and nicholas. Hes our final import ans im still a bit perplexed by the mix of our squad. Im guessing coach will utlise his euro slots but will have to wait and see. If he averages 12pts again he will be an improvement on last years 2 guard.
Personally though I found him streaky too capable of getting really hot and his shot would fall but could really struggle but did contribute other things ie rebounds when the shots weren't falling, I think they've seen enough to suggest he's going to make that leap year two!

chickenbroncitis: a good result to beat the sharks. Hopefully Lions getting rid of that coach will give us a good play off push and put us in the mix with the Eagles and Riders where we should be

ballerman: And there's our problem. You really only care about your own club. The Leicester cheer leader only cares about the competition his team plays in.

Solly: "I thought it was a great day out, and it appeared like those around me (basketball fans new and old) did too. And for the haters, it’s back to proper basketball now… and everything that comes with it… smaller crowds, no television coverage etc. etc."
