    No player is going to say they're so washed that they got bought out... So washed they can't play switch defense against the worriers nor stand around and make open threes.

    Might be easier to admit some things with a contract

    The Big3 is a bunch of washed up retired nba players. Obviously he will look good against that level of competition. Do you not remember what he looked like his last season in the nba?

    PJ Tucker has never been a pure scorer though. He would be locking down all those other players though so you better believe nobody would be putting up more that 10 points on Tuck.
    If you’re a pure scorer and have lost your athleticism you can put up a lot of points against other players who have also lost their athleticism. There is nothing special about that.

    44 year old Cat Mobley with a heart condition has been tearing up the league for a few years now.

    Waived by the Pistons, a team that might not make the playoffs this year.

    Can we finally give IsoJoe the ClutchFans burial he earned with his sub-par play as a Rocket?

    I honestly thought that it was incredibly ridiculous that Joe Johnson was getting a look from any team due to his play in the Big 3 playing against retired vets with bad knees in 3 on 3 halfcourt

    I mean, really?

    There were actually "experts" on the radio stating things like "well, is it just a coincidence that Joe is playing so great and the Rockets can't seem to make Joe, Melo, etc. work in their system?" I was like where the hell have they "worked" recently? I'm sure Faried will be next. Speaking of which, he needs to go play in China. He'd average 60 and 30 there.

    Melo got a chance with us after stinking it up in OKC the season prior.

    To be fair to JJ, he apparently asked the Pistons to release him. The team is a complete train wreck. But yea, he's done.

    So the pistons should sign Melo with this logic? It would be the perfect ending for Melo. Go to the team that took Darko over you.
