    I get that the Rox decided to make the move to allow them the freedom to make a trade, as court cases drag out, it was in their interest to do so, but we lost 6.5m in contract value to trade.

    Let's hope it works out for the Rox.

    I think that is partly on the Front Office part, while I do not think they had DV in mind structuring his contract, I was at least dead certain that he would slap somebody on the court or another assistant coach again.....

    • That was always at the back of my mind.....I would have cut him when he left the arena....it was the best thing to do.
    • Business aspect included.
    • Going forward, we should not pay somebody because of their talent lvl alone but someone who is mature enough off the court....leadership and such.
    • In retrospect 16 million was too much for him......I would have given him 9 million partially guaranteed in the first place.
    • (Just because the world of collateral that he is)
    • Overall Rox did okay but not brilliantly.

    Well, in KPJ's case it's rather this one:

    He will be back in the league before too long. All of this is always so predictable.

    KPJ was already going to be coming off the bench and the "know ball" crew still had it out for him. The loudest MFers on this topic seem to have a more sympathetic view for Josh Giddey. I wonder why :rolleyes:.

    Not at all. Im loving the new team concept and how the moving parts work well together. Im laughing at all of you pearl clutchers that ran into this topic with your pitchforks and torches because it satisfied your predispositions only to be shown wrong and vindictive in an effort to nurture your BS egos.

    Wrong about what?

    All I care about is that we are doing much better as a team without the cancer KPJ. It wasn't all only his fault (Silassssssss), but he is not a good guy, and not a good team player.

    Shout out to the NYPD and Manhattan DA for engaging in a conspiracy to bring Victor Oladipo back to Houston. Pray for Victor indeed.

    Of course because praying for a Winner which Victor stands in Latin for always works.

    Good! Then we agree that the new team concepts are better than the tanking "Go Suck" edict. Simiarly in a mutually exclusive way you should be able to say that KPJ was not shown to be guilty of the level of crimes that you and your cohorts accused him of, but instead yall want to meme it out and pretend it never happened.

    "Well he might not be a criminal, but he was going to be a cancer on this team with his 40% 3pt shooting coming off the bench" LOL

    I'd try to make light of the issue as well If I was shown to be an overreacting blowhard because it aligned with my amatuer basketball takes.

    Of course, the moment it happened you knew she was going to come out and defend him. It’s what victims do roughly 100% of the time with these rich dudes
