He should go play in China to stick it to Morey.

I now thing that the Bulls scouting department doesn't have access to electricity or any devices that actually use it.

Bet the league forced the Rockets to waive him as punishment for the China fiasco

Perfunctory.

Disagree. His talent level was « lower end of the lottery in an average draft ». He was considered the 7th best prospect in what was considered one of the worst draft of all-time.

The Cavs being stupid doesn’t change the fact that many guys with his talent level are out of the league as fast as him.

If I pick my grandma with the number 1 pick and my grandma can’t make it into the NBA. It doesn’t mean my grandma is a bust, it means I was stupid to pick her there in the first place.

Isn't he injured?

So his play is not a factor here.
