Could not produce for the life of him with us. Even was starting. Then he would turninto a black-hole on offense, miss passes with his stone hands too, and disrespected our organization.

Kings have loads of talent at the big position, there really wasn't a need for him.

He got PLENTY of time in Sac. He either hated being there and self-tanked for the season or just lost his game (I'm not convinced he has it back after one strong performance). Either way, they had no choice.

He had a chance with the Kings. He sucked. They tried like hell to trade him at the deadline Nobody wanted him.

And to think the Cavs could've have traded him to Phoenix for Amare when LeBron was in Cleveland. He definitely has some talent hopefully he can get his act together in Portland.

He dropped every pass and missed open layups. He got all the opportunity he needed. I'm glad he's finding success but it's his fault he wasn't succeeding on the Kings. He got more opportunities than he deserved honestly.

Yeah, he was terrible. The Blazers are without Lamarcus Aldridge and basically serving as Hicksons Cav's 2.0. As soon as the Blazers get some talent back and Hickson isn't their only option down low I expect him to be terrible again.

Pretty sure this isn't true. Both Kerr and Ferry have said so. It was just an online rumour that people picked up and ran with and got a life of its own.

He's shooting 65% in Portland, which is well above anything he did in Cleveland or Sacramento. That level of production is likely unsustainable. He shot 37% in Sacramento. And he's still a subpar rebounder, and non-existent defender. That's why he was cut.

He was misused in Sac cause he had to create his own offence in ISO situations.

He didn't have anyone who set him up in PNR etc.

Not that he's as good as he played cause he's not, he got brick hands and is horrible defensveily - but I said when he was cut, he's surely not as bad as he looked playing for us mostly cause of the situation he was put in.

Could you imagine if he had a 3 game stretch like that in New York?

This. Could have changed everything. Cleveland might have a championship and Lebron might still be there.

Super.
