    He was a great passer for his position. If his shot improves, he's going to be in someone's rotation for a long while.

    He was ahead of the Power Dancers when it came to rooting his team on from the sidelines.

    He played really well to the start of the season.

    Maybe he knew what was coming.

    One of the worst scrubs to even put on a Rockets shirt.

    I called this fake right at the start when people where going gung ho over him. Grade A scrub.

    Thanks for towel waiving and warming the bench seats

    K Pap, you the real MVP. I hope Denver waives your contract and we bring you back on! :,)

    He couldn't adjust to the 3 point line, and then he got hurt. He has a good IQ, he needs experience. I hope he will do well in Denver. I like him. I felt somewhat hurt, that he had to be traded. His non guaranteed contract helped us out. He is part of the RedNation.

    I understand Denver is keeping K-Papa. At least he is getting paid now, which was up in the air with his contract being unguaranteed.

    I think this account is fake.

    I hope another team gives him a chance after Denver waives him.

    Very tricky player, got lots of moves up his sleeves, and has terrific court vision.

    He will find a home in the NBA, hopefully back in Houston in the near future.

    I'm gonna miss him. Also, I'm slightly upset that I finally learned to spell his name without looking it up. BOL, Papanikaoeluaou

    I knew him from Euroleague, didn't think he was NBA worthy, but last year he surprised me, showed he belongs in the league. Best of luck. Very nice guy

    Seriously stop hating this guy and be appreciate he got a 5 mil per contract from the Rockets,

    otherwise this deal can not work and the Rockets may need to part away with D-Mo and TJ.

    Be thankful to life, even a scrub can contribute for the Rockets, unlike Lin.
