i think the notion he didn't play hard is erroneous. I think the problem was he wouldn't take shots. he lacked killer instinct to take over games. He was comfortable in the role that left when they traded all the other roles away last year.

He was never built to be "the guy" from a scoring or leadership standpoint. I thought he would have been the perfect glue guy to retain going forward as the veteran presence of selflessness among all the young'ns trying to find their way, but silas definitely didn't see that.

square peg, round hole.

Agreed with the last comment.... Silas was looking for another "go to guy" and Boris couldn't fill that role due to his psychological makeup

I can't say I blame him, as a pro athlete he should have shot more in the games being a veteran and had various skills but when a team seems they are not interested in winning and trade away Jared Dudley, Jason Richardson, Gerald Wallace, and Steven Jackson, what do you think went thru Boris' mind? He probably felt if they traded everyone of these players and they played way more harder, what would they do for him so he didn't play to his potential b/c he didn't feel the Cats wanted to win but wanted to win on a budget.

I will say again what I said years ago. Diaw's basketball view is that of an artist versus an athlete/competitor. When inspired he was motivated, but Boris' inspiration was as inexplicable as his play. He had great skills but rarely chose to use them regularly. He admired his own passing above all other assets, perhaps due to his Mom's guidance about the value of passing versus scoring. His approach truly embraced the french phrase "C'est La Vie", which means "...such is life...". With Boris we had some fine moments, but more often than note we only caught glimpses. Fact is, when we needed him most, he chose to fade into a corner. Oh well, c'est la vie!

MJ has turned this franchise into a complete
joke and it is not funny. It is pathetic.

It is that Frenchy European attitude. I for one am glad he is gone. I can't stand dudes that do not play to their potential.

Nobody on this team plays to their full potential. Hell, most people don't even live to their full potential. WTH was his full potential? Does Silas coach to his full potential? Does management manage to their full freaking potential?

Good Morning,
Jordan should be totally embarrassed in the product HE HAS CHOSEN.
Does he pay ANY attention to what's going on?
Silas SHOULD be getting paid good money to corrall these individuals.
Can't even call them a TEAM.
Can call them a Joke.

What happened? Larry Brown left and Paul Silas came. Two good coaches who ask very different things out of their players. Diaw flourished under Brown and withered under Silas. Henderson did the opposite.

When that happens, you have to get rid of the player or the coach. This was the right decision.

What if somebody wanted to put down serious money on Sunday afternoon football, and he or she knew about the bounty program New Orleans has made famous?

If Team B's offense is good was because of its quarterback, and you know that Team A is trying to take that quarterback out of the game, might you be tempted to invest a few bucks on Team A?

If you were connected, and close to the team, you might even offer to enhance the bounty yourself.

I'm not saying this happened. But it is feasible.

What's not feasible is a locker room full of players accustomed to being treated like royalty keeping the story private.

People talk. Ask the NFL.

That's why it's tough to believe that Drew Brees, a gracious man I've spent a little time around, knew nothing about the bounties. While the offense and defense often socialize with their own kind, Brees is a leader, the guy doing the pre-game dance in the middle of the circle. He's everybody's Saint.
