Yeah, people will point to his "super high %" but the guy is so trash if you just watch him play on both ends. I can def. see why a team who's biggest weakness is a rim protecting big happily released him even though he was great friends with there best player.. That kind of speaks volumes and i'm seeing why the Nets did it.

Kind of sad when we think a guy sitting at the end of the Kings bench would be a clear improvement over him.

If DJ just sat at the end of our bench and was here for pure insurance or spot rest management help i'd get it but starting is kind of pathetic tbh. I'm hoping once Bron returns or even Ariza they give DJ tons of "games off" going forward. They are pretty thin up front and are going to have to either make a tough decision on releasing a guard or making a trade because they clearly need at least one more front court guy pretty badly.

I wouldn't even mind seeing Sekou get some chances with our actual rotation guys in non garbage time minutes here and there. I'm having a hard time seeing it be much worse then playing DJ and at least there's some potential upside there.

After rewatching the LBJ and Stewart incident, I was amused at De Andre Jordan's defensive stance when Steward was charging towards LBJ. That moment where he bulldozed those coaches people restraining him just to reach to the Lakers side.

he shouldn't be starting. And we should have tried harder to keep Drummond, if we were just gonna let Gasol stay in Spain.

That said, I wonder who we'd have to package him with to try to get Myles Turner from Indiana.
