    Default Do You Believe Hedo Will Make This List?

    When its all said and done, and what place would you put him on the list if his play continues to deteriorate?!

    This list of the worst signing of the decade was written last year (I wonder why Elton Brand didn't make the list?)

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/blog/bal...urn=nba,185489

    Anyone want to make a list of the top 10 worst contracts given out by Raptors managment in history? (i'm thinking of Michael Stewert, Hakeem The dream, Jose Calderon, TJ Ford and of coarse Hedo)

    I can't really argue with anyone on that list but I wouldn't list the Jared Jefferies signing(5 yrs $30 mil) as third worst. Some of those guys make Hedo seem like a bargain! Jerome James? Erick Dampier? WTF were they thinking?

    As far as the Raps bad signings, you can add JYD and A Dub to the list(even though I liked them at the time).

    Anyone remember when the Wizards gave Juan Howard the first $100M contract in NBA history. It was the equivalent of the Magic giving Rashard Lewis full-max money.

    I remember when Dampier was suggesting he was the second best center in the game... Can't find the exact Shaq diss quote as a response to the statement but I did find these:

    “On the plane back to #PHX, another Suns W. Bogut is Erika Dampier with a beard.”
    DimeMag.com
    "I'm playing like Eric Dampier." (Referring to struggling with a thigh injury.)
    "Damp is soft. Quote it, write it, tape it and send it to him. I tell you, there's nothing there."
    "Who? Erica Dampier?" (Responding to a question about Erick Dampier.)
    "He could be dominant -- if he played in the WNBA." (Referring to Erick Dampier.)
    BSO

    EDIT: Just realized something. Zeke is responsible for the top three and he went out and traded for number #4 to secure his position as worst GM of All-time.

    Its sad that Kwame Brown is known for being one of the biggest busts ever as well as his name now being synonyms with throwing a birthday cake at someone's face.

    Maaaaaaybe....but Lewis has a better perimeter and a better drive game. I always felt Howard was too physically weak to content with primetime PFs.

    Considering the charge against LT has yet to be proven then Kwame Brown did in fact pull an LT because he too was once accused of sexual assualt before but charges were later dropped *cough.. deal under the table cough"
