Lamar Odom. A guy who maybe wasn't as serious as he should have been, but just the ultimate teammate.


Image

Kwame Brown.

A guy who got relentlessly, and rightfully criticized by great players for underachieving and being soft (Kobe, MJ), and someone who didn't handle that criticism well.


Image


Pau Gasol. Just a damn beast. This picture,especially considering how that series's ended, just defines Pau and arguably one of the best redemption arcs in NBA history after what he went through after 08.

This season probably defines his career so you might be on to something.

Haha those pics turned out to be photoshopped and the NBA is drug testing Caruso because they fell for the joke.

Edit: My bad I thought as a Laker. Kaman was solid prior to this season though.


And not too long ago...

Rooting for him. He did put in the work. I hope to see him in the Conference Finals.

Nah he didn’t do it. The Lakers released the pics on their official web page of a normal looking Caruso working out and some jackass photoshopped them and tweeted them and they went viral, the NBA decided that he looked like he was taking steroids and sent somebody to Caruso home to give him an unannounced drug test.

Not a pic and not career-defining but still:

Slava Medvedenko didn't make the trip to Toronto becaue of visa issues.
This is the second straight time Atlanta has had to leave town without him. Medvedenko couldn't get into Canada on the weekend because of visa problems (which is fine, because he forgot his parka anyways). This signing hasn't exactly paid dividends yet.
