    Start him then take him out at the first dead ball.
    If I'm the Pelicans I try to keep him healthy while pissing him the **** off at the same time.

    JR and Melo were malcontents. I don't know Parsons deal but I don't think he was trying to play. AD is a superstar who insists on playing and the reason people attend games. Big difference

    Unless somewhere in the rulebook it states teams have to play their NBA stars if they're eligible, I don't see how the League are able to enforce anything. Sets the precedent that the NBA can really enforce any rule they want

    Don’t really understand the parallel. Those 3 guys didn’t want to play.

  15. Requesting a trade mid season is kind of malcontentish, maybe?

    So publicly demanding a trade midseason isn't an action of a malcontent?

    If you want to put what AD did (it wasn't public until the pelicans leaked it) on the same level as JR and melo's situations, feel free

    I mean, what exactly did Melo do that made him a malcontent?

    Dysfunctional or not. Team hasn’t gotten better 1 bit in 4 years, 3 of which he’s been the man

    He plays nothing like him, but it feels very Melo-ish. Amazing scorer, can put it in the bucket, but is he making the team that much better.

    I don't know bro. Yall can act like you don't understand the politics and the difference between Anthony Davis and Jr smith all you want. The fact that nobody noticed or cared about those guys until it happens to AD says everything. Those guys aren't helping teams and nobody wants them
