The board collective was interested in him pre-draft, some more than others.

I liked Patton pre-draft. We're all wrong sometimes

Gotta develop to stay in the league. We're about to find out if he didn't because he was hurt or because of his personality. Tools are there.

Pretty sure in dating apps it's probably called DM, not texting.

How unlucky. Situations like this is why guys don’t “bet on themselves” more and take the money when it’s there.

That might be a career-ender. Horrible luck and such a shame that we got to see a Hall-of-Fame career cut short by such devastating injuries, all within the past what? 500 days?

Man that sucks. Saw Cousins a few weeks ago at the TBT in Chicago and he already seemed depressed as hell. He’s gotta really be hurting.

For personal reasons I really hope the Lakers restock with Zaza Pachulia.

That's brutal. He's done pretty well for himself earnings-wise in his career but he never did get that one big payday and now he never will. Take the money when it's there and demand a trade later is the lesson here.

I think he really wanted to take the Kings money but they didn’t share his enthusiasm. He’ll still have made about $90 million over 10 years plus sneaker/endorsement money. Definitely missed out on the big one though.
