    He was playing vs Fredette's team. Luis Scola was in their front-court. No wonder DMo got so many boards. Scola is 38 years old at this point, and 3 inches shorter.

    Haha Luis and Dmo talking smack on Chinese turf......great globe trotters. Great Ex Rockets.

    Dmo is still 28 didn't even hit 30 yet. Scola is from another era.

    Plus Scola is DMo's idol. I wouldn't be surprised if he was going extra hard because of it.

    Shandong is 11th out of 20 in rebounds per game. So middle of the pack for team ratings. In all honesty, DMO fits this team better than Carmelo would ever have.... right @DaDakota?

    It's lower level, intensity Defense so the naked eye would see it as no defense as folks are used to NBA level of Defense.

    Also Fredette dropped 41 on the Rockets. :eek::p

    I thought he only liked ouster. He must have learned to appreciate some good food in China.

    Too bad Terrance Jones wasn't there. Or we'd have THREE Rockets legends.

    Technically, there was another Rocket legend, on DMo's team. His name is Andrew Goudelock.

    Ok, I'm flip flopping on this one. I want Morey to sign DMo for the same reasons Tosh wanted weed to be legal. If DM does so, then the DMo lovers will have nothing to talk about.
