He doesn't deserve to be on a good team.

Didn't someone claim that Troy Murphy never wanted to be in the playoffs because he liked having his summer vacation start in mid April? Guess that was incorrect.

I can't wait to watch the softest big guys in the NBA playing together, :laugh: jump shot after jump shot, the matador defense is going to be beautiful to watch.

Why not?

He complained his way out of New Jersey and never worked hard on defense. He isn't a winning player.. No one wanted him and NJ had to give up a second round pick just to lose him.

Because he's never been on a winning team? We've got a whole roster full of guys who aren't "winning players" then.

And several teams wanted him, they just didn't want to pay his salary.

Didn't Murphy have a verified account when he was with the Pacers?

BringJackBack

What I mean when I say that "He's not a winning player," is that if he is playing big minutes on a team than that team is not any good.

His best role is that of David Anderson in Orlando.

@troy_murphy good luck with this process. Never thought we would be in this situation together.. Lol

Is a buyout really coming and Ford will go to Heat?

I'm not sure that he's implying he'll sign with the Heat, but gl to them if they are. I can't think of two worse fits for that team.

Well, I hope he enjoys getting glares from James when he has the audacity to actually shoot the ball. Of course, if it goes in, James won't complain too much, but will still probably tell Troy that he had a better shot and to pass him the ball next time.

I think Ford is just saying that he never would have thought they would both be in the same situation, looking for a buyout so that they could go play elsewhere. But that's just my assumption.

Poor TJ, he just lost his leverage... not that he had much to start with, I suppose.

As fans, we've all seen Murphy's game. Hang out by the 3 point line, jack up long shots and rebound the long misses while playing that matador defense. Now, I ask: What team (in a championship hunt) would want that kind of disruption? Just taking away from what they already have.
I think it's all fake.

Boy, that will be bad. If Troy goes to Miami that will cut LeBron's minutes down to 20 or so a game!

The Warriors were expected to waive Murphy after acquiring him from the New Jersey Nets, but one source said the team is now considering keeping the 6-foot-11 forward because it needs size. Murphy hasnít played since Jan. 7 after Nets coach Avery Johnson said he didnít plan to include him in his regular rotation. Yahoo! Sports

Judging from the comments, I'm guessing that the person pretending to be Troy is either a very nerdy 13-15 year old kid, or a very alone and pathetic adult male that still lives in his parent's basement.

There's someone who has a little too much time on their hands.

It's funny to see TJ tweeting him.

I don't get Warrior fans.

They sellout every game and they still boo at Mike Dunleavy after 4 years after being traded.

I remember we played them this season and even Stacy Paetz was saying they need to let it go already.

I did a quick research about it and found this article from 2006, some of the fans are talking about the same stuff we see here, it looks like the are booing him for been such a high pick, not been that good and because I think he trew BD under the buss one time.

He's a nice guy and I hope he gets time where ever he signs.

I do believe the fake Troy Murphy that TJ sent him a private message saying he also was thinking of going to Miami. Hilarious he was able to get that out of him.

Miami would become the world's softest frontcourts, and Boston would suffer the biggest defensive downgrade in league history going from Perkins to Murphy.

Just because Troy was a sub par frontline player for us, doesn't mean he doesn't have value to a contender.

I agree, I actually think he could be amazing as a stretch 4 for a team like Miami. Wade and LeBron draw most of the defense on them when they drive, and it would be so destructive to have a stretch 4 like Murphy hanging out behind the 3, drawing a defender out there to open up the lane. And if they collapse, then LBJ/DWade could drive and kick out to Murphy for the 3.

Would be very interesting to say the least. Murphy's style could work if you have 2 other superstars who like to hang out around the rim.

That will last about as long as Dunleavy v DWade.

I would love to see Tyler posterize Murphy.
