    Thank you for being a consummate professional.

    Great cheer leader on the bench.

    Thanks KJ.

    I like the way you held down the end of the bench with that constant, bummed-out look.

    At no point in your tenure did I ever have an emotional response to anything you did.

    Thank KJ of your support of Miss Alabama's tweet saying the guy who killed all those police is a martyr. Class act.

    Mcfail and JB Nolongerstaff should have played you.

    Instead, you played you.

    Good luck, KJ - hope you get the opportunity to crack a rotation somewhere. #freeKJ

    I appreciate clutchfans.net's love of his potential.

    I never really understood why everyone was so high on him in the first place. Didn't Morey jump through a couple hopes just to sign him in the first place?

    Watch, in 3 years we will look back and say, "why did we trade him?". KJ will be DeMarre Carrol or Livingston watch.. always happens to the Rockets.

    A few of his dunks were cool. I watched him in a game in the cozy confines of RGV Vipers arena in which he completely failed to distinguish himself among the D-Leaguers. Fortunately Montrez was down also and was completely feasting on the D-Leaguers.

    So long, KJ McDaniels
    Though we never knew you at all
    You rode the bench well
    Keeping seats warm for other personnel


    And it seems to me
    that the coaches hated you
    'Cause you were low on the totem pole
    only playing when the game was in hand


    Would have liked to know you
    But you were near twelfth man
    Never getting in the game
    Only scoring when the pre-game set in


    Blah blah freaking blah lol

    I will miss the garbage time chase down blocks in transition.

    I had unrealistic expectations. I was disappointed he never became a top notch team defender. Then we could have waited a little longer for him to develop a 3 pt shot.

    There was praise for him before. He has a lot of potential and Morey saw it too, but if the coach won't play you then it's time to move on. He has the work ethic so he will be fine.
