Wouldn’t trust him even in that league, I still remember Ainge throwing shade at him when he ‘beat out’ RJ for the last roster spot a few years back...this is the first and only time I heard him use negative language about a current and former player so I’d hate to think what his attitude was like behind closed doors.

hard to believe he's only 23.  seems like he's been a disappointment for so much longer
