But Orlando doesn’t have to pay the rest of the 35 million, just 7…and in Isaac’s defense, he was very good when he played…He didn’t just get paid for being tall.
He wasn't very good. He was slightly above "just being out there". But you're right about the financial downside, it's not killing the Magic.

Are you talking about this year? Or before his injuries? I’m talking about before his injuries..he was an early DPOY contender before he got hurt and was still putting up 15/9/2/2/3 per 36

Ah, my fault. I was talking about this year. Yes, he was good long ago when I had more hair on my head.

His rookie contract was supposed to paid for those “very good” games, now, even if the extension is valued on potential, when that potential never turns into actual production on the court, then is money wasted, because the guy is not (present day) very good, neither he is good, not even an end of the bench player, he is a nothing ON THE COURT, therefore my comment on him, as a tall guy who didn’t earn that money on the court.

Again, past performance leads to calculate future value but is not the real value, those 11 games are the value received for $45 millions, the next $7, would be for nothing

You’re not wrong…just saying that he was a good player, he didn’t just get that contract for being tall

Brooks got his 16 tech tonight in Denver and will have to miss his next game.

Gotta be careful what you share online as it's so easy to manipulate stuff and there are lots of fake accounts that make up stuff

I did a double take on this and it seems legit to me. The fact that it has gotten to the point where my immediate reaction wasn't What nonsense is this ?? and that it is actually possible because of his latest behaviour is just sadd

I just don't get this Ja Morant stuff. It seems like he is trying to act "tough" or "street" to get credibility or look cool or something like that. I really don't think he's really some kind of gangster on the inside. Maybe it's just boring in Memphis.

PTI is the only show I really watch so I reference it a lot...Wilbon said last week I think that the Grizz are missing a solid veteran on the team to keep those younger guys (Ja and Brooks mainly) in check. They're young and fun but also immature. I don't know what Ja's thinking lately but they may implode before they ever really get going.

Dillon is 27, he’s not exactly young. What about Steven Adams? Feels like he’s a solid vet. No real excuses for me for their behavior

This. They are all adults, zero excuse for all the fake thug nonsense.

Thought Brooks was younger. Either way, neither of those guys are listening to Steven Adams.

Is this the next Gilbert Arenas-esque gun scandal? Wonder if Ja has ever been packing heat in the locker room.

He's also Canadian, they aren't even legally allowed to be a dickhead.

They said he's going to sit out so he can work on his shooting.
