Re: Mehmet Okur signs with Turkish team, with NBA out-clause
I sort of lost touch with Memo after his injury plagued season. Historically, he's one of my favorite Pistons of all-time. Memo and Zeljko Rebraca came to Detroit within a season or two of one another, both with a small amount of support and hype. Zelly was largely a disappointment and limited. Memo, however, ended up being awesome.
Even though he did not put up spectacular statistics (playing behind the Wallaces, Corliss Wiliiamson, Elden Campbell, and even Cliff Robinson) Okur still did great and unique things with his minutes. I was sad to see him leave Detroit, but happy to see him achieve such success in Utah. I hope his career continues to be fruitful.
