First Kobe, then Duncan and Stoudamire, and now Andrea. NBA losing talent on fly.

Super team trend spreading to Europe. Adam Silver needs to make a decision.

He won't be missed by any team he's played for.

He averaged 14.3 and 4.6 in 28 minutes in the NBA. Not first selection material but not that bad, I thought he can be given another chance in the NBA nut injuries really slowed him down the last years. I always thought he can be a very impactful player in europe, it's time to ball now, no excuses.

FUN FACTS:
- Teams don't win rings; teams win titles-- players win rings
- There are only 8 seeds in each conference; the team that finishes 10th isn't the '10th seed'-- it's just the 10th-place team
- Sammy is admittedly a bit of a pedant

This is a sign of how euro basketball is changing. All these players have played for Baskonia in their primes: Prigioni, young Calderon, young Dragic, Huertas, Nocioni, Scola, Splitter, Oberto...

A couple of years ago they signed a washed up Odom and now this. Oh Lord....

Injuries weren't his biggest issue. It really seemed like he just stopped caring.

Yes he was like fased out, but he was playing decent basketball with the Knicks until that stupid flying dunk break him up.

he is not as bad as people say, his biggest problem was he was a #1 pick and could never live up to it
