    I'm no stranger to talented guys having attitude and being tough to deal with.

    BUT

    from the beginning, I thought he was too slow for NBA standards. His best case scenario translated to a fat Boris Diaw.

    For his own sake, laying low and understanding his illness or playing in Europe for a few years then trying out for the NBA seems like the best step forward.

    I'd get banned if I expressed how I really feel about this guy.

    It's Micheal Ray Richardson all over again, with mental illness instead of drugs.

    Except Micheal Ray turned his life around.

    (and yes, that's how his name is spelled)

    He looks thinner in that picture than before. At least he's lost some weight. I hope it works out.

    Lulz. So your skill set is going to keep you in the league and on our team just because you have it, yet never plan to actually USE it?

    This guy is something else.

    This should reinforce one thought about not trusting McHale to make the final call on drafting players.

    just to play devil's advocate (or be stupidly optimistic) so what if he hasn't worked out at the Toyota Centre, why couldn't he be working really hard at another location, must have missed that detail in player contracts that they are required to work out at the team facility.

    Says he's doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing, staying out of trouble and being a good citizen.


    Well, I hope so. You've got kids that look up to you.
