    Never draft those and if they turn alright (Metta) then trade for them but cautiously

    at least we know he isn't faking his mental disorder. What a shame a guy with so much physical talent wasted.

    Philly was keeping it real.... 'You are a talent but we don't want you at this point.'
    This was the way to go.

    Unemployed and looking for a team

    I'm tired of talking about this kid with great upside, and a tremendous backside.

    All that talent gone to waste. Wonder how long he keeps collecting an NBA salary based on potential?

    That so did not come out right. Downside would have been a better word choice. Heh

    I really don't think he will ever play again. We saw how little effort he made to stay in shape when he wasn't with the team. He is only going to keep losing what he had physically and teams will see that.

    Sigh ... I am not sure what more we could accommodate for him. The disorder aside ... it is kinda ... that "he wears the 'disorder' as badge of honor" and then talks about how NBA and basketball in general is not a career end. The attitude, is that a part of the disorder?
    After all, basketball is a team sport. Many professions just can't have people like that, maybe basketball is one of those professions.

    He's a con artist that never articulated exactly what his demands were, yet made them vague enough in an attempt to vilify the Rockets, Daryl Morey, and the entire NBA. He wanted to be off the hook for any behavior, have a get out of jail free card, and a blank check for his bad behavior.

    He's a dodgy, shady thief, a pretentious cretin with delusions of grandeur, and there's no way he'll play a minute in an NBA game.

    Only skimmed the article. Did the writer skip over the parts about baby mommas, mexican prostitutes, gangbangs, and drugs?
