    I thought Puerto Rico was destroyed by that bug rock from outer space in the documentary called Starship Troopers.

    Can someone explain – seriously – why a guy like him, who had respectable numbers, doesn’t get an NBA job? Didn’t he have some decent success? It’s like Dwight Howard…his numbers were great this year. Shouldn’t he get a big contact this offseason? I am not that educated on NBA contracts…never understood it.

      He had a bunch of injuries early in his career and never met expectations.

      I….howard was a productive player for the league champs. Jones didnt even play in the nba.

      I recall him in college as someone who liked to be the biggest baddest on the court. He probably likes the reduced competition in smaller countries… or maybe the climate!

      the dude sounds confounded lol

      although he can score, he is very limited defensively and is undersized at his position. he also likely lacks the work ethic that is needed improve as an nba player.
