Spurs big dude DeJuan Blair signs to play in Russia
 
He will have an out-clause to return to the Spurs/NBA when the lockout ends.

What do you think of Blair as a player? His current role on the Spurs? And how good he'll be a few years down the line?

Stupid stupid stupid.

Dejuan Blair has no anterior cruciate ligaments. You read that right: he has NO ACLs! That's the stuff that protects the bones in your knees from going 'bang' every time you make a step.

His health and durability is severely limited, he should not be doing anything that could potentially shorten his NBA career and thus his big pay day. He should spend his off-seasons riding around in wheelchairs to save his knees, not making a little side money in Russia playing hoops and hurting his knees.

:oldlol: Shut up. He hasn't had ACLs since high school. He's fine and he's doing what he wants.

So I'm guessing he is going to get paid worse in Russia than in the NBA? Because if the russian team is offering him good money, it makes perfect sense.

Anyway, I'm a fan of Dejuan. It was extremely frustrating see him fall so low in the draft, glad he proved many wrong. Hope the best for him in Russia (and back in the NBA whenever that is) :D
