    This is the best wake up I've had, ever.

    So long clown.

    What a joyous f*cking occasion. The wicked witch is dead!

    I bet his stupid f*cking face looked exactly like my profile picture when he heard the news.

    I will always remember :

    Prior to paying him early for no reason : “A bargain at 20–25 million! Pay him now or pay him more in a year!”

    After signing him to the most team friendly deal any one had ever seen : “You’re an idiot if you think he’s not going to get every penny of that contract”

    Talent was never an issue, he was just a moron and now he's getting what he deserves.

    I always thought if kpj played in the right role (6th man off the bench) he could have had a important role on the team

    Even more important than that was keeping the immaturity at bay which looks like he just never got controlled. Unfortunate that it didn't work out but glad he is gone and the locker room just became more professional.

    Just looking back at the last few years it's crazy how chaotic the locker room was with such a young team. Biggest failure of the management team in my opinion. Glad it's finally getting cleaned up

    He was a very good young NBA player with major mental health issues, it is a shame that the Rockets enabled him instead of did what was needed by giving him accountability.

    He was developing very nicely as a player but clearly not as a person off the court.

    He blew it, now he has to go do what was always necessary and work on himself before he gets a chance in another league or the NBA.

    I will always appreciate his abilities and wish we could have seen him under a real disciplinarian - but that ship sailed - and he needs to work on himself.

    I am also glad he gets his full salary this year, so that if there is a settlement that Kyrse can get paid as she deserves it.
