    UPDATE: Video highlights...

    Go off, Gary Payton II!
    [​IMG]
    The @RGVVipers prospect drops 51 POINTS with his dad, @GaryPayton_20, in attendance in L.A. Rockets need to sign him NOW. Bobby Brown and Tyler Ennis need to go. Don't let this become Hassan Whiteside all over again.

    For comparison's sake, Isaiah Taylor (who didn't play in this game) is averaging 25.7ppg and 7.3apg for the Vipers with a .546 FG% and .448 3P%. As far as I know this is GPII's first big night for RGV, where he had been averaging 11.4/7.6/2.4 until tonight. It's still the D-League.

    That said, Ennis sucks. So I'd be all for giving Gary II a contract.

    We should cut Brown and sign him before the desperate Nets are going to offer him a 40x3 contract lol

    Right. They said the same thing about Kawhi Leonard coming out of college. GPII has elite defense already. We need to sign him immediately and develop him.

    No exaggeration.... my middle school gym had more seating than that "arena".

    I didn't know GP2 played in a church league.

    I didn't realize the Vipers had picked him up either. 51 points is gonna make a lot of teams take notice. The name helps too. Is he essentially a free agent that any team can pick up or do the Rockets have some level of control over his contract?

    Corey Brewer scored 51 points on the Rockets back in April of 2014. We need to sign Brewer!!

    The fake Fakers suck bad, but still pretty impressive shooting by GPII...if he's able to become consistent with his shot he could become the next Beverley :cool:

    Still can't believe a guy so limited offensively scored 51. He might be the worst player ever to score 50.

    GPII is a free agent. We have zero control if another team wishes to sign him to a NBA contract. Similar to former Vipers / current Miami Heat Hassan Whiteside and James Johnson.

    And he did it in The League. Go figure. Brings to mind a saying about dogs and days. How did that go?

    Thanks for clarifying. Rockets might be making some changes soon.
