Which makes me think....since they let that be known...to what extent are mgmt and Phil making Smush the fall guy? While Smush is clearly the weakest link, he is no "fall guy". No one who makes the minimum can be a fall guy.
i don't think they are making him the fall guy by any means, i'm sure it was just an anwer to a question, i read someplace else that smush had said he wouldn't be back...
it actually may be a blessing for smush that it's out because now teams can talk to his agent and not be tampering if that had been an issue, not sure how that works with free agents...
smush even said he didn't think things were bad between him and phil but he did notice a feeling in the locker room that things were different the last few weeks and that basketball was not fun anymore for him..
i'd give you the link but it's one that well you know...lol
