Exactly. Just taking a roster spot from somebody else basically.
And him being better than other big man says more about the league than it does about him.
His value was debatable IMO. 2 second round exits, 1 first round exit, and a missed playoffs in his last 4 seasons.... Lots of missed games.
He was a walking injury and out of shape player in the past couple seasons.
