Memo to Memo: I'm sorry, your NBA playing days are over. Please stay in Turkey
or wherever. Thanks for your time and contributions in Utah; even though your
compensation was not comensurate with you contributions. Bye, bye.
I love you Mehmet.
Nice guy.Way over paid.But aren't they all?
I'd sure like to see more coverage of the overseas leagues in our newspapers.
It's time to let go of the NBA and move forward with our basketball lives.
Here's hoping he doesn't hurt something else while playing and not be able to
play when the NBA starts.
to be honest...at the time memo was offered the contract...heck even AK...they
are worth it...but injuries...changed them...i think the most and really...way
overpaid guy in the NBA is Joe Johnson...he isnt a superstar...but he gets
superstar money...I think memo would be a good asset in developing Kanter...i
just hope he doesnt teach Kanter Defense...
I agree that Memo would be help to Kanter on and off the court...I bet they have
already talked a lot. Memo has good court savvy, improved as a rebounder during
his career. At this time, he has better range than Kanter, too, but I'm guessing
that Kanter will be an outstanding 3-point shooter eventually. Enjoy Turkey,
Time for the NBA to get this situation fixed, both players and managers. Good
Memo should not be playing for anyone but the Jazz. He only has so many miles
left on his body and he owes those miles to the Jazz. He had no problem
collecting a paycheck all last year without playing but a few minutes.
Hey Jody,Us B-Ball fans are starving for more B-Ball news. I've
tried to catch some of the Euro league games (available on espn3) but not as
much as I like. Tried to catch Turkey to see Kanter he has made some plays.
Yesterday, in the game vs France they passed it to him with one second on the
shot clock and he drained the 18 ft rushed shot. He's made other impressive
plays but he's not starting on his team and gets limited minutes.Tell us more about other players in the Euro league:AK47Ante
TomicKanterNBA starsMore NBA news- like when Andrea
Bargnani drained a 3 with 5 seconds left to tie the game and then fouls the
guard accepting the inbound pass. What a boneheaded play which lost the game
for his Italian team.And - if Okur is healthy and so anxious to
play....Why isn't he playing in the Euroleague right now?
@huggyfaceFrom what I've seen. AK47 is back in form in Russia. He's
been doing 5 by 5s regularly and is easily their MVP. The difference between NBA
and Euro has a lot to do with that though. NBA is tougher, Euro is faster. Also,
Jazz don't utilize AK very well....You've seen Kanter. He's
got a great outside touch, but he prefers to bang in the post. His strength is
what I've noticed. There's this one play where he Shaqqed Marc Gasol.Surprisingly, Dirk is struggling in Germany. Parker is MVP of France. Fes
is........Fes.Tomic is doing very good. Try to catch his latest
youtube highlights.The video is called: "Ante Tomic 23 points
Eurobasket 2011"He's like a Pau Gasol type, but not as dominant
or strong. Still... 7'2''...I wish they could get him here. At the very least, a
great trade chip.
@AnonigmaThanks for the update, but you lose some credibility when
you say AK is regularly getting 5 by 5's. Do you know what a 5 by 5 is?
@JFFR5 pt, 5 assist, 5 reb, 5 stl, 5 blk? Ach, I should've
said near 5 by 5's.
No worries, 5 by 5's are extremely rare performances. AK's doing a great job
filling up the stat sheet, but he's not getting 5 by 5s!
@JFFR:Andrie's latest:14 points, 11 rebounds and 6
assists, 4 stls, 2 blks (Close)Man his team is unbeaten and he's the star
of the team.
Its kinda close, but not really. He only got 3 of the 5. Getting those last two
are what makes it so impressive. I'd say he's closer to a triple double then a
5 by 5.But I think your point is very valid. AK is playing really,
