What's the point staying on a team that won't even play you in garbage mins.

I mean, if he really is heading home to be with his Mom, can't fault that.

But even if he wasen't, it's clear Doc considers him a DNP every night despite getting murdered by big lineups, so Can't really blame him for asking "what am I doing here?"

Doesn't surprise me at all. Even if he has underwhelmed in his career, he is good enough for 5-10 minutes per. I'd want to leave too if I were him.

One can only hope Fab Melo doesn't have this attitude.

I think Melo realizes he's only played the sport for 5 (?) years and has some improving to do. Hopefully in a year or two he'll break into the rotation and be happy with that.

Darko is a different situation, I think. He's NBA-capable, and has zero minutes. I see where he's coming from.

Perhaps he shouldn't be overweight the past two years then?

The idea that if you're not getting minutes its understandable to quit on your team is a strange one.

Obviously you don't because he is leaving for personal reasons and to be with family not because of a lack of playing time.

So says Wojo, which could be the cover story leaked by his agent.

I'm cynical about this in large part because of wojo's article mentions his lack of playing time as a factor.
