    Maybe they begged Morey not to.

    Zhou Qi -> Noah Vonleh 1 Year / 1.6M with Knicks
    Carmelo Anthony -> Jeff Green 1 Year / 2.5M with Wizzards
    Marquese Chriss -> Nerlens Noel 2 year / 3.7M in total with Thunders
    Michael Carter-Williams -> Seth Curry 2 Year / 2.75M first year with Blazers.

    Want more cheap contract and better player?

    JaVale McGee -> 1 Year / 2.4M
    Vince Carter -> 1 Year / 2.4M
    Jonas Jerebko -> 1 Year / 2.17M
    Derrick Jones Jr. -> 1 Year / 1.5M
    Ed Davis -> 1 Year / 4.4M
    Brook Lopez -> 1 Year / 3.4M
    Greg Monroe -> 1 Year / 2.1M
    Elfrid Payton -> 1 Year / 3M

    All of them would be better than our four Scrubs.

    Morey messed up this summer, that's for sure.

    He looked pretty good, good rebounder, nice picks. What else do you want? He wasnt terible on defense and he's young. Not like they are playing him Ennis minutes.

    He does set poor picks, and play abysmal defense. He's lazy and stupid, a combo that rarely goes away. he has the physical tools to do almost everything Capela does. The low IQ you could tolerate with high effort (Gerald Green), but his lack of effort on the floor is obvious. I don't think playing hard is asking too much.

    He was just a contract we always knew that, nobody actually expected a productive player. I'm sure somebody will give him a chance due to his physical tools, but he flat out doesn't belong in the league right now. No way he is here past the deadline. If Morey can't find a way to dump him he will be waived.

    He's not an NBA player, and a lot of people contributed to this situation, but it's time to take the reins and decide if he wants to be an NBA player or not. Unfortunately it doesn't work out for most people like this, and when it does work out it requires some sort of eye opening experience. Maybe once the cheques run out he will live somewhere else and have a richer view of life. Or maybe it's just not what he wants and that's totally fine too. He just needs to decide for himself.

    I didn't watch the 4th quarter, did I miss any Clyde Drexler "NIGHT IN, AND NIGHT OUT!" quotes??

    There's a joke in there somewhere about the Indian shrine that banishes women who are menstruating. Chriss' shrine sounds like the opposite.

    I don't think so but he he did say about Chriss, "he has all the tools, he just needs to find a team." Lol. Drexler pretty much flat out said 'you don't belong on this damn team'

    I know, I was joking. He was playable for a few years there and then he fell off hard.

    The Fonde Recreation Center, often known simply as Fonde (pronounced "fon-DEE") or Fonde Rec, is a public gym near downtown Houston, Texas. Fonde is most well known for its basketball courts, which have been the proving ground for numerous NCAA and NBA basketball players during the summertime. Among the basketball legends that have played at Fonde are all-time greats such as Hakeem Olajuwon, Moses Malone and Clyde Drexler.

    The most surprising thing about this list is that Carter, Jones Jr and Payton are all former Suns players too so it’s hard to see Morey missing on them considering his obsession and admiration for Phoenix Suns cast-offs.

    Some of you are acting like we acquired Chriss because we thought he was gonna be good. He was just a contract we were forced to take back to break up Anderson's deal and create some salary matching flexibility. Maybe that ends up being a stupid move, we will see at the deadline, but we were well aware that he sucks.

    Melo and MCW are less defensible WTF signings. We added them thinking, for some reason, they would actually help on the floor. The MCW pickup still confuses the hell out of me

    I am sure that is not true, there are even bigger scrubs.
