    Thank you for the last two years of being a consummate pro and representing the Purple and Gold. Best of luck just not against us.

    McGee was very solid for us. Great teammate, even better cheerleader and vlogger. Going to miss him the most out of the guys we've moved on from.

    Dude was great for us the entire time here. Never pouted and became the soul of the team this year. Became unplayable in the playoffs but man he was a good anchor in the regular season.

    Nothing but love and respect for McGee, came to us in a time in transition, was an amazing teammate and never caused issues even when his role probably wasn’t what he expected it to be.

    Got a ring as well, wish him all the best.

    Damn, more new emojis to make

    :Dannygreenonfire3::Dmcdisbelieveyou::Dmcpphhtttt::Rondonod::Javalebarfbag::Javaleidontknow2:

    still hoping we keep Dudley. I’d offer DMC a min contract ASAP too. Cacok is in our mix. Looking very solid this year on paper.

    Alas, the last of the original meme team has departed. He was solid for us for 2 years. I'm kinda sad to see him go. :dwightcrying:

    I think we're fine and we'll be OK. This isn't about the overreaction of us being smaller.



    But I do miss this guy. He was easy to cheer for.

    He's already made as many 3s as he made last season. Steph Curry who?

    Good for him. I always felt he had some moves but in our schemes, and with the personnel we had, was not encouraged to really use them much.

    as a young player, he looked like he had the tools to be a monster. handled ok for such a big guy, moved great, showed some range on the jumper. but he was so bad and so focused on honing those skills that he basically played himself out of a couple spots. he found his way as a lob catcher/shot blocker and won in smaller roles. but this stuff has always been there, i think.

    same is true for dwight and lots of other bigs: can they shoot/dribble? sure, maybe. can any of them do it well enough to justify it as part of their role (and to take it off of other, more skilled players's plates)? almost never. save that s*** for ymca, bros.

    it took dwight more than a dozen years to accept that although he could post up, he probably shouldn't if he wanted to win.

    He can be the PG in their big lineup.


    I like Javale, I'd hate for that to end. I know it's not his call, but I can't support anyone on that abomination of a team up.

    LOL. They got destroyed in the paint twice by the Cavs and now all of a sudden it's Javale to the rescue :D
    Mike getting smarter with age?
