    I've never seen a guy try to block a shot with his forearm before. It seems you might try to jump if that were your plan.

    He hit him high and low. There probably haven't been 5 flagrant 2 calls this year that have been more legitimate.

    It was a typical BoT play. He always gets one of these fake tough guy calls. Had he done it to Cousins......I would have been impressed! Leave it to Chaz to get an embarrassing F-2

    Could be as good as Dre on defense, that's for sure

    Surround Charlie with high character guys like Jake Voshkuhl and he will soar. He's never had a mentor in Detroit.

    If given a chance to play, Charlie will play great this year; it's a contract year. The bigger question we all should be worrying about is not whether or not the turd will stain less this year; it is this: Will Dumars be seduced by the outbreak and give him an extension?

    So, what does the next season look like for BoT?

    I give him two years max in the NBA when his contract expires. And I would probably take the under.

    I see BoT and Collider taking their talents to Barcelona next season.
    ...or Belgrade.
    ...Istanbul.
    ...Milan.
    ...maybe Bamberg.

    All joking aside, I don't see either of those guys getting any playing time with another NBA team. Charlie may get another deal, since you can't teach 6'11" (look how much money Darko made over his 8 year career!), but I doubt he ever gets real minutes again. Dude just doesn't have any heart at all.

    The NBA team that signs Charlie will instantly become the laughing stock of the league. I honestly think that Charlie is done as an NBA player.
    Stuckey is going to have to take a huge pay cut to stay in the NBA. I don't see another team offering him more than 2.5 mil per year.
    I could see a situation where he takes 4.5 mil to play in Europe.

    I don't think so. CV if such a nobody, noone will even notice that he gets signed as someone's 15th player. Other than those hardcore types in 30 team fantasy leagues...

    If only he scored two more points in that game, CV would had surpassed Tony Delk as the worst player to score 50 in a game.
