    I find it ludicrous to bad-mouth AK.....The guy is a fine basketball player and always has been. Injuries are part of the game....While in Utah, the guy was overpaid, misused, and abused; and he had a personality conflict with Sloan....but he's still one heckuva ball player.

    Can't blame him, at his age, for wanting a shot at the title, but he's not going to get it with the Nets. And there was a time when he assured all of us that he wanted to end his career in Utah. After he broke the Jazz financially with the max contract, he just wasn't willing to stick around for what the Jazz then offered. A case could be made that he had already been paid a whole career's worth of salary by the Jazz.

    So, he didn't really care about winning a title at all for the first 12 years of his career?

    Only a Russian who left Russia and became Americanized could possibly say $3 million was "not that great."
