    He would get cut from China; that's how bad he is.

    How is three years or however long it's been a small sample size, but whatever he's doing this season isn't?

    This convo is stale anyways. Hopefully today was the last of Leonard in a Blazers uniform. he's had enough chances. He's blown every single one of them. Goodbye

    No we are stuck with his ass three more years because nobody is going to want to trade for him even if we included all of our picks

    You know what annoys the fuck out of me about that? That he endures himself to children; who don't know any better.

    Whereas the rest of us who are adults see him for the truly terrible player that he is.

    But no....the FO will use him as a media puppet to give smiles to children and pose with the mascot. I want someone with SKILL doing that job...not Meyers.

    Or hell...just have a cheerleader do it. They have fantastic tits, and they're far cheaper than Meyers. Not to mention better looking overall.

    Players like him are the reason there needs to be a special clause in contracts that states that if players don't hold up their end of the deal, their contract gets voided. NO gambled on this one and lost all his chips.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Then players should also have a clause that if they feel they're underpaid because they overperformed, the contract gets voided.

    Which basically means, no guaranteed contracts--every player is a free agent every year. That would be interesting.

    I fail to see how he gambled. He knew what kind of player he was before he signed Meyers.

    someone please remind me again why he was re-signed?

    does anyone even know besides Neil?

    he's about as close to a 'Subtraction by Addition' player as there has ever been in the history of this franchise, league and universe.

    and, nothing makes me dislike him more than listening to him being interviewed and his belief in himself.

    fuck
    him

    Dude is getting paid 40 million for 5 points a game? I could do better than that

    Meyers Leonard + Cle pick for Kyle O'Quinn and Lance Thomas.

    Only thing keeping me from doing it would be Kyle's team option for 18-19. Also kinda like our chances to find a piece with that first but not sure a future first would be enough to unload meyers.

    I'd
    If the knicks really want to be bad, I think this is a pretty good trade for them.

    No gambling on Meyers contract - it was UTTER STUPIDITY, simply moronic

    If Jackson trades for him, he should be fired, and the trade rescinded by the NBA

    He's gonna play like shot for 2 more years, then the final year of his contract play at all star level, then walk away and sign elsewhere. He got paid, he has nothing to prove till then

    Not really. It's easy to say this in hindsight, but look at his numbers before this season. One of the best shooting 7 footers in the league. 24 years old. That's worth an 8th players salary. It was one of the few moves that Neil missed on. Get over it.

    Has nothing to do with hindsight. I always thought of Meyers as a terrible player especially on defense.

    Bench players have weaknessess. That's why they're bench players. That's why they make $10 million. But they also do valuable things. A center forcing another center out of the paint is one of them.
