NBA Orange (Dec. 25-Dec. 31)

This NBA season almost didn't happen, but now that they've taken the court it's a little dissapointing how the former Syracuse guys are doing after 7 days this season. As we know Andy Rautins was a trade casualty & is now overseas, Etan Thomas got more face-time standing behind Derek Fisher during all the press conferences than he did in his entire NBA career yet no one has signed the former block king (all hail Fab Melo).

  • Carmelo Anthony - New York Knicks
  • Jonny Flynn - Houston Rockets
  • Donté Greene - Sacramento Kings
  • Wesley Johnson - Minnesota Timberwolves
  • Hakim Warrick - Phoenix Suns
