Just read this and was gonna post it. I had no idea it had escalated that far. I had no idea Javaris was a thug. That kid had 4.0 GPA in high school and was an excellent point guard. What a complete idiot to throw a high salary fun career over what? Ego?

I know man. I read that long article on him from awhile back and he didn't even join a street gang till after he got drafted by the Lakers.

I remember after he got traded to Memphis I kept my tabs. That current coach would play Mike Conely most minutes, then Kyle Lowery the most, then Javaris the most the following game and Javaris was holding his own stat wise up against those two point guards who are now stars in the league.

Makes you remember one bad decision can change your life. This dude is in prison most likely for life.
