    Posters overblow the effect of this with players/coaches.

    Players hold out in sports all the time.... it's not personal it's just business. No reason to think D-Mo's messy contract situation would upset any players or coaches.

    So his back must be really messed up. DMo needs every penny out of this contract(his last) to survive.
    Poor sap..

    Come on, Dmo, get rid of your BJ. Dwight also fired his agent.

    Hypothetically, Utah could offer him more money, Rockets match and Dmo/BJ win. Its a lose/lose right now for both sides.

    This makes no sense...Rockets are just going to match again. BJ Armstrong doesn't know what he's doing!

    Please explain to me what is wrong with inflated stats? That sounds like career stats to me, inflated stats would be a scrub coming in and putting up stupid numbers which we have seen from such as Ennis and Brown come in and not be able to do so stop it with the "inflated" stats

    DMO if your agent would have got off his arse and found you a deal in the off season you would not be were you are. Get to work!!

    Just want to be clear, this is a backup power forward with a fairly serious injury we are hand wringing over, right?

    fighting for his rights? What rights? Doesn't he know how the collective bargaining agreement works? If you're a "restricted free agent".... you're like.... "restricted"

    To give an example of the NBPA power when Sanders decided after just signing a 11 mil extension to retire they still intervened multiple times with the help of his agent trying to get him his money. The team had a lot of dirt on Sanders drug issues but they still managed to get him $.

    LOL,

    players hold out because they are UNDERPAID or at least they are vital or valuable to their current team so they still have some kind of bargaining power.

    DMo?

    The guy who is jobless almost after a month into the season and the only offer is coming from the worse team of the league and not even with a fully one year guaranteed contract, and even that, he still believe playing in the Nets will be a better situation for him than playing in the Rockets.

    You will believe that's his bargaining power?

    LOL

    Utah doesn't want him they already have too many bigs. If dmo wants minutes Utah would not be his destination, it would be exactly like it is here

    Honest question: Is it even at all possible to fit more douche canoe into BJ Armstrong's twitter header photo? Seriously.

    Man, that is one helluva picture of 'that's what she said'.
