    Very interesting. Some individuals can't make the adjustment, it seems.

    Thamel's piece in the Sunday Times. The kid seems like a disaster waiting to happen.

    He's actually telling his professional coach that he knows nothing about basketball? Oy, vey.

    Sounds like the kid really needed that senior year in high school. It's hard enough being 16 or 17 in high school, much less being expected to be a grown man in a professional job.

    Sure, it's always Israel's fault.

    I honestly don't care about these articles, considering it's in the best interest of these writers to paint a negative picture about him.

    His success puts the jobs of college basketball writers in jeopardy because no newspaper or online magazine will bother sending a writer to Israel, Italy, Greece or some European country to cover players who've made the leap from HS to overseas.

    We saw this with Brandon Jennings who is proving a lot of bad wishers otherwise.

    I'll take it with a grain of salt and let this thing play out.

    Most do. And by most, I mean all.

    I see no problem with him playing overseas professionally at that age. It's no different than the experiences that faced Tony Parker and Ricky Rubio.

    I blame the Jews for ruining my NBA career, as well.

    Supposedly Jennings could barely walk and chew gum over in Italy last year, and he's been close to a sensation in the NBA this year. Which tells me that the Euro leagues are a lot closer in talent to the NBA, or these articles are full of shit.

    I'll withhold judgment as well on this guy, until the dude is (or is not) playing in the NBA.
