When we needed him the most, he didn't show up, literally. He was supposed to be a big piece to our puzzle, an experienced big man who could defend and shoot from the outside, but he played like a rookie last year.
I know he's old, but Come on. If you don't want to play, then retire, and quit playing this game of "I want to be the oldest NBA player ever." Otherwise, don't wear a Nets uniform, and take your silly games elsewhere.
