    Thanks for posting this.

    Scola is a beast in FIBA. I think he had another 20+14 game or so in the previous match.

    Just like Chuck Hayes, Scola will always have a place in my roster.

    People act like 35 is 70. Also regardless of age he's still gotta have like a 8'6" standing reach meaning he only has to jump 18" to touch the rim. Of course he can still dunk

    35 is like 50-60. Normal standard

    You can still partake in jobs but you are not as effective as you were with 30 or 40.

    Olynyk is trying to out-scola Scola with that hair, and failed miserably.

    Would've loved him back, but definitely not as a starter. By the end of his tenure I became pretty annoyed with his deficiencies but we all know he can still ball. Weird how teams keep trading him. If the Spurs ever get him, I could see him making a huge impact.

    Scola is one of my favs. Heart and serious post savvy made up for lack of athleticism.

    Scola can keep on trucking since his game isnt centered around athleticism, but one thing thats is showing is his bad defense.

    Luis Scola is still my spirit animal.

    Man, as much as I love what the Rockets did this off season, the fact we didn't get Hayes or Scola makes me a little sad. I mean, we didn't need either one of them, and neither of them would have gotten many minutes -- but I irrationally love both of those players.
