    Dorsey isn't even remotely as bad as people make him out to be. I really don't get the overwhelming despise for a guy, though not talent, hustles for blocks and rebounds.

    He looked small on the court. Played small. And that's too bad.

    I'm with ^^^this^^^. I don't get it. All the hate on here for him. He is a role player who gives everything he has to play that role. The "Chuckwagon" was beloved in Houston for playing the same role...but Dorsey gets all hate.

    Slightly more athletic Terrence Jones with even less shooting ability. He would have been a decent pickup if we had traded Jones away.

    Joey Dorsey plays good minutes for us. He defends, rebounds, blocks shots from time to time, and also smokes hookah at one of my favorite hangouts! Leave him alone!

    I believe TRob has mutually agreed to sign with the Brooklyn Nets. No room for him here, but I do enjoy watching his effort.

    It'd be interesting to see what the Texans could do with Joey and TRob.

    I realized I hate on Dorsey too much after watching DMo go for a whopping 3 rebounds last night.

    Pretty rotten trick by Philly just to exceed the salary floor.

    I still think his nickname should be ThRob.

    Hinkie making enemies

    Reminds me of back in the 2000s when a team claimed a player (for a few meaningless days) who was supposed to be medically retired and ended up costing his former team a serious chunk of change. Someone help me out, I can't remember who it was

    Good going Philly. TRob still has something to prove.

    I too dont understand the hate on Dorsey. He is a role player. what does everyone want! An all star warming the bench?
