Lets see a seven footer, fantastic rebounder and league leading offensive player. And the NBA doesn't draft the guy because he was a little chubby in college. Nice move GMs.
But let's give Kurt Thomas another contract at 40. And Juan Howard is going to play in the playoffs this year.
Lob city should invite him to the summer league team, give him a shot. He could be a good back up center for them
John Bryant is no man's backup
He's just so unbelievably unathletic looking it blows my mind...
Hey, Tyrese Rice! There's a guy who was pretty good in college.
