    Shout out to @REEKO_HTOWN

    A tribute thread to the soup-throwing, half time street racing, Head Honcho. Now that he moves on to his new career in the Chris Brown Womens' Boxing League, let's remember all the good times KPJ brought us Rockets fans, shown below:

    I'll remember him in a positive way with the hilarious arguments from kpj stans:

    - if you look at his last 7 games ...
    - if you look at only the games where he scored efficiently, he is actually very efficient
    - he can't make assists because his teammates are very bad

    the list is long...

    This thing parallels the Mason Greenwood domestic violence on his girlfriend in the UK, he was a rising troubled star on Manchester United.

    The girl then drops the cooperation, the DA has no real case then, so drops the case, but the organization, despite have a desperate need at his position - forward - decided to cut ties and trade/loan him to another club - so he can start over.

    I suspect this will mirror that in some way, his GF will probably not want to cooperate at some point, the DA, will look at the case, and decide to proceed or not, and will adjust the charges up or down accordingly. Let's assume she just wants it over doesn't want to press charges, if the DA has a witness they might move forward, if that is the case they will take a plea deal to a lessor non - felony charge and he will get probation and try to ressurect his career ala Bridges.

    If she does cooperate - he will do jail time of some sort.....

    My GUESS is this gets pleaded down to misdemeanor and he tries to start over somewhere - but, may have to go to Europe or China first.

    KPJ is toast, beating on women ends careers… rightfully so.

    I actually expect KPJ to stay with the Rockets. I'll believe he's gone only when it's official.

    Sorry but too many problems stacked for that to happen.

    KPJ is long gone.

    If Porter isn't there to paint Green's nails. . . . Does that mean Green will have to go with the natural look?

    The fact that she's a WNBA player and John Lucas's Goddaughter is the career killer for him. Both in terms of morality and PR, this is a disaster of a situation. They will come down on him hard.

    My guess is he'll get suspended for half or full season plus he will get blackballed after that. I think he'll have to go play abroad like Marbury, but he's young enough to make it back to the NBA if he rehabs himself and his image.

    First offenses rarely get jail time, and it depends upon the injury and circumstances....if found guilty, he would get probation and community service.....

    This is his first real offense in NY - and unless he beat her before (He might have) they will treat it as such, IMHO.

    Thanks for leading the tank that led to Jalen, Sengun, Bari, Tari, Amen and Cam. It's been real.

    Well, reading the articles he's had several run-ins with law especially with assaulting women. Not to mention gun and mar1juana charges.

    Dude is probably going to see a little time.

    He'll probably settle with the gf so she won't press charges, but he'll still be cut from the Rockets. Either way, I don't see him playing this upcoming year unless a team really wants bad PR. Out of sight, out of mind for a year...and he'll go somewhere and start over. With his reputation even before this happened, no team in the NBA will sign him.

    Regardless of what he deserves, his several hours behind bars is all he'll see unless he decides to represent himself.
