He got caught trying to pull a Nigerian email scam on David Stern and is now blacklisted.

He did have some nice stretch when he played for the Clips. But defensively, he just can't cut it. Teams can easily dump his 6 points for some big who can spread the floor like Bonner or someone who can have defensive impact with 6 fouls like Kwame Brown or energy mascot like White Mamba.

He had some very big moments off the bench in LA not that long ago. Ike is a very gifted scorer and is able to score a lot of ways in the paint. He is clearly an NBA player but the way he plays combined with his lack of size and reach means he won't ever be a starter on a good team. He just loves contact and has skills but he is sort of what you get if Shaq and Z Bo had a handicapped baby together.

I still remember when he murdered Ben and Rasheed Wallace when the Pistons were a sick defensive team. I think Ike dropped 36 on them when he was only a rookie.

2 seasons ago when he played with the Clippers he did a great job. High energy. Lots of hustle. Could score inside. Not a bad player at all coming off the bench. He's had injury issues, but that last year with the Clippers he did a really solid job.

he was supposed to be the highlight of the trade the pacers did with the warriors years ago. he didn't do crap for us and his career went south from there.

So 6-8 in shoes, with a 7-4 wingspan, and 255 pounds is undersized for a PF?

Put down the crack pipe.

That's not undersized for the PF position in the NBA, and certainly is nothing close to being a "lack of reach".

Doesn't bring enough in any other area to cover for the fact that he couldn't guard a door with a machine gun.
