    Well I guess that's what happens when you play on the worst team in the NBA. You have a lot more time for Twitter I imagine.

    Wow. I didn't know I could hate Bogut even more.
    Almost makes me wish he had another elbow dislocation.

    The problem is that we would drive up his value in our offense at the cost of our assets. I would hate to lose him after this season, Id rather pick Bogut up on a friendly contract as a free agent.

    Thanks for this, Balldon'tlie. I hadn't known. I don't care how good a player is. Now that I've seen what an appalling human being he is, I don't want him on our team. No talent is so great we should pursue a lunatic racist. I'm glad he chose Dallas. He belongs there.

    No way I'm giving up Harrell for this guy. I never coveted Stockton or Malone and if we'd signed them I'd have found another team to root for. The same is true of Bogut, who is less talented and more offensive as a human being. Our chemistry is amazing right now. We don't need to drop an alt-right guy into the mix no matter how talented he is. One can't align oneself with bigots and expect to get along with mostly black players. And his talent pales next to Stockton or Malone, two players I found so disdainful I didn't want them even if it meant our team might have become a dynasty. I don't want to win that badly.

    Not playing tonight; he got kicked in the calf in Orlando and mavs hope he can practice. Might be signs that he's getting traded; that's the speculation on mavs forums

    I lean to the right but I wouldn't touch him after those tweets. Alt-right people are the crackpots of the right. I did find the Mavs tweet funny.

    I don't want him on this team. Just cause he won a ring don't make him good. I'd rather see what Capella develops into 5 yrs from now

    Sometimes you need to keep things to yourself.

    I always forget Bogut was a number 1 overall pick got picked over CP3 (whoops!).

    Hopefully he ends up out East for peanuts

    It used to bug me that he never got more crap for being a role player who was drafted 1st overall. Then I looked at the 05 draft. Yikes.
