    Really though, he's vitally important. Without his salary, the trade doesn't work!! Although, you could accomplish the same thing with Layman, so I guess Pat isn't all that important after all...

    This guy... That photo he posted I hope is the final time we see him on the court. It's absolutely ridiculous that he posted that photo. Ye great man you got 10 rebs in 10 mins. Achievement unlocked, on to the next one which is being the highest paid player that doesn't see the court.

    Honestly embarrassing. Every time I get close to wanting to root for him he does some stupid dumb ass stuff like this. Instead of flexing in garbage time he should be more concerned about why he was in the game at that point to begin with.

    I was bored and whilst browsing through Instagram, I saw a funny Evan Turner jab on this exact photo from Meyers. I'll leave it here with no comment.

    Although it might be better suited for the Nurkic thread, I just noticed your profile picture prune...it struck me funny, Jusuf Christ...since I thought Jusuf is a Muslim.

    As a non-religious person, I didn't put much thought into that. However, Jesus Christ is a prophet to the Muslim faith, just not the messiah. Most of the major religions are so ridiculously simular and share 90% of the same basic ideas. Wars are started on that conflicting 10%.

    Back on topic. Meyers is lame. Nurk is beast. Good will to all man/womankind.

    Anything that can boost himself up. I noticed he didn't even play in the last game.

    He has some nice guns, but they are wasted on him.

    Meyers spent a lot of time in the gym, but he really should have been working on developing a post up game and ability to score in the paint. How are those muscles going to help him, the way he plays?

    FYI, @dviss1--the Meyers bandwagon is repaired and back on the road. Still drifts a bit, and has an unmistakable knock in the block, but we're cruising on undeterred, even if I have to do so alone.

    He'd better perform well against Haifa, or we're going to have issues.

    Ahh, that's the pernicious thing about the Biebswagon, it occasionally works giving some a glimmer of hope.

    Both statements show how little you know about either. Not trying to bash you, but you talk like you know, but obviously haven't read either. Jesus is the name, Christ is the title. Pretty sure any muslim would be offended by calling Jesus "Christ" (the anointed one, the Messiah). And yeah, if Nurk was a devout muslim then he probably wouldn't appreciate you placing that label on his body. You could always show him a picture of it in person and see what happens? #PrunetangDust

    Reports did verify that he spent a lot of time playing ball in LA this summer, which is good. I do agree that one good game compared to the rest doesn't give me any reasonable hope. Seems like his upside is a very poor man's Ryan Anderson, who Houston couldn't trade if they wanted to.

    Take our Ryan Anderson. He is half as good, but costs half as much.

    He should have spent a lot of time in the gym.

    He should have spent a lot of time working on his post game.

    He should have spent a lot of time in pickup games.

    According to reports, he did all three. He's trying. Results may vary.

    :cheers:

    I don't know one way or the other, but this site seems to indicate that while they consider him a messenger and not the son of God, he is also identified as the Messiah and referred to as "Christ the son of Mary" and "Christ Jesus the son of Mary" at various places in the Quran.
