Dragons to dump Horvath for Hendrix

Heard last night and then read this morning that the South Dragons are looking to swap out Nick Horvath for Bakari Hendrix, a PF who played in the NZ NBL with Horvath last season.

One story went that Horvath had a game left to prove himself, but the article in the Herald Sun suggests the swap is being done regardless and may be in place for the Dragons game against the Breakers.

No doubt the image of the measuring tape behind him and prison number he was given has been cropped out of that pic.

Damn there are some derogatory remarks coming people around this forum. All in fun I know... but c'mon.

He has massive lips. Why is that derogatory? It's like saying "that's a really square jaw."

And it does look like a mug shot

thedoctor, not surprised that it could make some people feel a bit uncomfortable. Compare it with "those are some slanty-ass eyes".

Which of course reminds me of XKCD:

Ha. Nice one.

I think Lockstock might be an Eddie Murphy fan. Nothing derogatory in it IMO

while the picture is semi amusing - that segue was terrible!

How long have you been hanging onto that pic waiting to get it out there?

Cat Man, we belong to the Cult of Boti.

There should be a time line.

- Smyth/Breheny go overseas to find fresh talent
- end up recruiting talent previously seen in the league, saying "had no idea he had that range on his shot, sweet!"
- Boti heads off vibe that Horvath is injury-prone
- Horvath mostly scores inside despite hitting from outside at a decent rate; rarely is spotted outside the paint
- becomes evident that Horvath can't defend and throws away fouls
- fans still see value, cry that Horvath is underused
- Boti hops off the H-train
- new season breaks, and with Horvath playing under enemy Heal, Boti does not let up

horvath will re main with the team and practice until his NZ citizenship comes through in which place he will play again.

Cat Man, not everyone was impressed with the Horvath signing. However, I think a whole season of underwhelming performaces from him is a good enough reason to change ones mind from being initially optimistic about his signing to coming to the conclusion he isn't an impressive import. You're a tool.
