Look here, NOBODY saw this coming. But to say a player will be out of the league in 2 years MAX with no solid backing is just plain stupid because dude is balling. And why are people bringing up AVERAGES at this point of his career? Dude has started 7 games, the averages will definitely be inflated, or are you too bird-brained to understand that?

Turnovers just come with the territory when you're just starting to get the insane amount of playing time he's currently getting and play the role of floor general; not to mention him driving to the bucket all the time. Let's not act like dude hasn't been getting double teamed off the pick, as well. Dude is a playmaker and he's gonna be out of the league in 2 years? Making stupid comments like that...YOU go sit down somewhere, LOL.
floor general who's turnovers have been because of terrible decision making? whats the point of havin 8 a.ssists when you gon have 6-7 turnovers...but iight youll see...n*gga gonna start gettin cooked night in and night out and i wont even say i told you so

You're dumb. This is bigger than just a headline. He's the first Asian American of his kind. This is marketing, racism allegations, image issues, global ties, etc. Also, that term was derogatory. Period. We should be embracing and accepting this nice change, not putting it down. That goes for the other little sh*ts who agreed with you too.

Exactly, if you're running a business why the fu*k would you want to offend anyone who supports you? I hope none of you that back this sh*t own business you'd be out of it quick if you let sh*t like this slide. You'd lose a lot of money.

I'm not asian so I can't really answer that question but one of my friends growing up was the son of 2 Chinese immigrants. I remember one day this kid called him a chink. My boy LOST IT and beat the hell out of dude. Rage like I've never seen

Another idiot. Looking at your avy, it doesn't surprise me. It's usually the racially sensitive negros who have sh*t like that.

I remember the article about the black guy who made a racist comment to an Asian store owner, telling him to go back to his country...all because he had an issue with the price of gas. Then the Asian man told him to go back to Africa. Next thing you know, the whole ignorant part of the community began to protest the man's store. Can you say double standard?

I point that out on here all the time, but according to these coons on here, I'm an "Uncle Tom" for speaking the truth.
so you agree with a white coward that wants all black people to die and burn but other black men are the coons and you are not a uncle tom
