What happen to this guy? Was suppose to be know as the Keon Clark. Is this finally the year he gets back in the league and get quality minutes on a team say milkuakee? Thoughts?
He does not deserve a shot anytime soon. He should spend at least 3-4 years overseas to experience life and re-evaluate himself over the opportunity he let go from lack of ambition. Look how it turned around for Gerald Green once he had a reality check with himself.
Austin Daye is next to slip into the oblivion
at least he did it while grabbing an NBA championship ring
Being traded for Fab Melo says it all
He was actually casted as being the NEXT Carmelo in the strong class of 2007 They went to the same high school and he really had some of the same traits to a point. STrong in the post, could take his man of the dribble, smooth jumper and a lot of scouts considered him the most potent offense player out of 2007 EVEN with Rose and Beasley.
They talked about him toying with opponents in the summer camps and then he kept growing, and growing and growing. He was 6'7 or so going into his senior season and this was when he was judged as being elite. By the time he came out of Syracuse the next year he was between 6'10 and 6'11.
I have never seen a player grow 3 inches and get sorrier. (lol) I don't know what happened. Once he got to the league he just never went in the post or drove to the hole. It happens though. He was tearing up the summer league, but not the regular season. Maybe he figured he got the money and played soft and wound up played himself out of the league by just shooting jumpers.
