Nets shot 34.2% from the field.
Portland shot 24.4%! Yipes!!!!
For a low scoring game like that, 5-10 50% shooting and 3 blocks is huge.

hope he can keep it going
he's the center of the Turbo Twellies after all...

I feel for this guy... He is having a good bit of pain due to his kidney and can't take ANYTHING for it due to his condition... Not even standard OTC stuff...
He is a trooper for getting out there when he could just accept the money and call it a career...

He will never play out his contract. Period.
Trooper? Maybe. I think he is trying to play long enough on one failing kidney to suck some team into a contract that will pay him past his ability to play. That kidney cannot physically hold up. Since I think he is doing that, I find it unethical and can therefore not give him any credit. I'm just glad he went to NJ and didn't sign the Mavs offer.

Slow down there Doc... The bottom line is that NJ signed him and he TRIED to play but his kidney failed... He has since fought back and, despite reports saying that he was going to retire and give NJ NOTHING for their money, he is now playing every game to make a HOPELESS team better... Now sure, he asked to be traded, but that is understandable in his position as he KNOWS that he has at best one more year and he wants to contend for that year... I know I would want to contend if I was playing one last year while in excruciating pain...
Regarding him trying to get one more payday, I don't buy it... He KNOWS that no team will sign him for anything other than a one year deal for low money... His career is over and he was a great player... I say he deserves credit for his efforts, but I guess I can understand your point too.

He accepted his horrible contract. I dont know if I can blame him for that. I know I could have blamed him if he hadnt cared but he's really putting in the effort and playing through a lot of pain
16pts, 9rebounds, 3blocks, 2ast, 1steal tonight.
