Default What is Doug Smith smoking?

You've got to be kidding me.

($10 mill IS quite a bit). Or is it a lack of potential?

Doug: Money has almost everything to do with it, heís got a huge ticket. And heís good, no question, but heís on a bad team and you shouldnít get fooled by guys who put up big numbers on bad teams. Does he start over Bargnani here? Are they ready to give up on the kid yet? Nope. Does that mean Dalembertís a backup here? Probably. And thatís waaaaaaay too much money over too many years to pay a backup.
I don't know why I'm getting worked up because it likely won't happen because of his contract which Doug alluded too, but come'on .... Dalembert backing up Bargnani? LMAO

He's playing on a bad team yes, but a bad team that's playing competitive basketball and not just rolling over and giving up like some bad teams. :mad:
