    LOL, Bynum and Oden better come back. Guys are missing on some serious dough.
    Never wished an injury (not even on the C Bags) but now...
    I wonder how many clauses are in that contract (for Philly's sake).

    From what I heard --- a s***load. Called the most complex contract in NBA history.

    I don't think Philadelphia is considered a small market...?

    I recorded that game because it was on at 4am PST and watched its entirity of it later. That was extremely entertaining and I'm glad China got a front row seat to watch great basketball played at a high level. Both teams looked great.

    On another note anyone else catch that D. Wade thieved J.R. Smith's starting 2 guard position from him? I read it a couple days ago.

    I still like the kid's game. I'll take him once Philadelphia is done ruining him.

    Heck he might be cheaper than that. If things continue to devolve, he could end up just being a dump candidate.

    i liked okafor in the draft. think we dodged a bullet. he simply does not look interested in playing defense or playing without the ball on offense. and he's not good enough to be an offensive fulcrum. plus, i think he's got off-court issues.

    at best, he's a good backup 4/5, imo. you can get those in FA for MLE or below.

    On a sucky team with opportunity, he couldn't stand out. I can't see a place for him here, but I hope he has a healthy happy career. And maybe a couple more TMZ moments. Those are fun.

    Agreed. He just needs to be in a better environment.

    He would make a fine backup 4/5 anywhere. Greg Monroe is excelling as the 6th man for the Bucks. There's no reason Okafor couldn't do the same in a functional environment.
