Default Dino Radja......



Why did Dino quit? Was it that crappy trade that would've sent him to Philadelphia for Clarence Weatherspoon? He was pretty underrated playing for the Celtics, I don't know why they tried to trade him for that fat piece of crap.

16.7 ppg, 8.4 rpg. Radja was far from a stiff. Maybe you mistook him for Matt Wenstrom or Brad "Big Bird" Lo(l)haus.

And to answer the question, he was 37 with hurting knees when he retired. He could still play, but retiring was wiser for his health.

Thank you Psileas for defining the true meaning of stiff.

Dino had his time, but being 37 with bad wheels kind of makes you a stiff, some people (wrongfully so) compared Spoon to Barkley, why not take a chance, Dino wasnt going to be around much longer.

And I am sure he was a nice guy

No I was wondering why he left the NBA, he was pretty good.

He left the NBA at 29. Not 37. I'd rather a prime Dino than a garbage Spoon.

You obviously know a lot about Dino Radja

how many times did he play the full 82 games? Let say never.

how many times did he come close? Lets say never.

How many times did he play less than 65% of the Cs games? Lets say every year except one.

What would you call a guy who cant stay in shape or healthy?....

Then I'll take a "stiff" over many other players. Actually, I answered why Radja retired from basketball, not the NBA. Maybe the reason was that he could find better contracts in Europe (remember, the early to mid-90's NBA didn't offer the sums it does today). At 29, he was still pretty healthy.

TMAC?


Yet he played another 8 seasons in Europe. So he was healthy enough for that.

I like the Cs, and Dino, but the dude was injured a lot.

Probably why he went back to Europe because NBA squads werent willing to gamble on his health (no fat pay day), and wouldn't give him the kind of money that his celebrity status (I assume) would in Europe. Less of a grind in the Euro leagues too with shorter seasons.

I think he played like 25 games his last season in Boston.

Spoon had a pretty long career, it wasnt that bad a trade.

Yep cool analysis :)

But I'm still wondering what were the exact events of the situation? Did he refuse to report to the 76ers?
