He's right there with some of my least favorite Celtics of all-time.

Jermaine immediately reported severe pain in his shouting wrist, and will be out for 6-8 paychecks.

Let him collect his few remaining NBA paychecks from the Maricopa County Jail.
The NBA is a very stupid, corrupt, and unethical league

No sympathy for the Phoenix organization whatsoever.

Not sure what their aim is right now.

Trotting out a bunch of sloppy-bodied basketball players isn't a good look to me. Everyone in that team bar Shannon brown and Gortat needs to find the weights room.

This situation is funny to me because I hung out with Jermaine Saturday & he was very candid while talking about alot of things. He says he absolutely loved the playing for the Celtics & wouldn't mind playing there again. He says the injury that kept him out was overblown just to keep him away from the team because he & Doc got into a physical altercation & that Doc wanted no more parts of him. He says he was sorry about it & he & Doc has since appologized to each other. But the player & coach relationship had soured enough to where he could no longer be a member in that locker room. But what I think is the funniest thing is that he also said "I will only be in Phoenix another week maybe if things go right" so I asked "Are you hearing your name in trades or something?" He said "Not really that but I got some things in play if things go right" and of course me not wanting to beat a dead horse I tried to figure those things out myself. But starting a profanity laced tirade at the front office escaped my imagination! Jermaine is such a nice guy, very polite & approachable guy, that I'm assuming he went in & asked for his release & the Suns frontmen said no we are not going to do that & he then got angry & his temper got the best of him. Maybe I'm being biased because he liked me enough to wanna be my friend & hangout away from the ballcourt but I have encountered many NBA cats & he's the 2nd coolest guy I've ever met only behind Shawn Marion. Very down to earth superstars or former how ever you wanna look at it. He really wants a title before he retires & he said as much & he was only using Phoenix to show he was healthy again & they were supposed to be his stepping stone to flip to a contender later. Looks like I may get to keep a friend for a year though now that Phoenix may not accommodate him. :)

If this is actually for real and a true account then that is pretty cool.

So he's a nice guy even though he physically assualted his teams head coach and by your own accounts just created a situation (expletive laced tirade) to get out from the contract he signed, to play for a contender? Sounds about right...     ::)
