    Shows how much I follow the NBA, I had no idea that Wesley Johnson and Diante Garrett are back on the same team together.

    Very cool. To think, if the McDoormat departure/Freddy return had happened a year later, we might not be talking about this at all.

    Congrats to DG

    I could probably see where the confusion happened. WJ and DG are chatting it up like old friends, someone from marketing/management or whoever is in charge of the website roster asks "Do you two know each other?" and they say "Yeah, we went to the same university"... oh, okay, he must know him from Syracuse then.

    I could see that if they didn't have DG listed at 6'7''....just laziness.

    Kid put in a growth spurt. He will be deadly at 6'7".

    I emailed a friend of mine that works for the Suns and he was able to get DGs profile fixed

    Re: Diante getting opportunity to play for Pheonix

    Some of you may know that I collect ISU player sports cards, and I just found this one searching for DG: 2012 13 Donruss Elite Diante Garrett Rookie 599 | eBay

    Glad to see he has one, and is a testament to him sticking around the league.

    Re: Diante getting opportunity to play for Pheonix

    I hope he makes it.

    It is really difficult for players to establish a long career in the NBA - I'm thinking Wiloughby, Shirley, Blalock, Brackins.

    I read somewhere that 50% of the players who make 1 year of seniority in MLB, never make to 2 years. I'm guessing the NBA might even be harder than that.
