    30 years ago, Rod Strickland exposed himself in a hotel room and it was news, but the Spurs didn't cut him over it. Shows how times have changed (for the better) in the last 30 years.

    internet helps,tbh

    A lot of people in this thread are saying that Primo sucked at basketball and that he’s damaged goods that the team is not going to bring back. I don’t necessarily disagree.

    However, I will remind these people that the front office (Brian Wright in particular) held Primo in very high regard and viewed him as a potential franchise player. If this is true, don’t you think that given all they’ve invested in him, they would like to at least explore the option of bringing him back in the future, assuming he clears investigations and successfully completes his mental rehabilitation?

    Since weíre contemplating prior scandals, I still want more info on the Walter Berry vs Alvin Robertson ďknife fightĒÖ


    Yet it wasnít long into his NBA career when Robertsonís temper and destructive side began to surface. In the '86-87 preseason, he and teammate Walter Berry, the streetball player from New York, got into a heated argument that was part frightening and part comical. Frank Brickowski, the Spursí center, recalls returning to the Red Lion hotel to find Robertson and Berry squaring off.

    "Walter starts talking s--t to Alvin, who told him to shut up," Brickowski said. "Walter kept talking, and Alvin put him on his back. Alvin let him up, then Walter pops Alvin in the eye. Everyone broke it up, but Alvin had a mouse under his eye. I thought it was over, and so I go take a shower.

    "I hear a crash in the next room, hurry over there and Alvin and Walter are going at it again. It spills into the hallway, and somehow Walter grabs a butter knife. I think he got it from the housecleaning cart. He starts going after Alvin. Heís chasing him. I go, 'Walter, wait, thatís a butter knife. What the you gonna do with that?' Walter looks at it, tosses it aside and gets a fork."

    Rod was a talented NBA player, but I think the Spurs were okay with letting him go precisely because of his conduct. He went on to be a good NBA player, but never an all-star. He could've been great on the Spurs with the talent that was there, but he screwed it up by late night bar fights and wild conduct off the court.

    The last hey day was probably the Tarkanian Experiment where we had three players who all had problems going through metal detectors because of too much bullet shrapnel: Lloyd Daniels, Sam Mack, and…David Wingate?

    iirc that was the source of the line "Tark has options off the bench, he can go leaded or unleaded." I forgot the exact wording and which commentator said it, though.

    a) gilbert arenas also had the history of being a multiple time all star and all-nba player. teams are only willing to put up with headaches if the on-court play justifies it

    b) when arenas came back from his suspension, he was traded a couple of months into the season to the magic and amnestied less than a year after that. not the best example of a successful comeback story tbh
    Iím not talking about the fact it was a successful come back, Iím talking about the fact it was a come back after the guy did something very wrong too. But Iím sure you understood that.

    Lol comparing that scrub Primo to Gilbert Arenas. Primo wasnít even better than guys like Nando de Colo. no one would be racing to sign him.
    Well, if I follow all of you guys, you can forgive a player after he makes a major, and for Arenas a dangerous, thing, just because heís good. If heís not then heís ed ? Thatís probably the case, but laughing at the fact that I compared him to Primo while you know morality says they should be treated equally makes you as weirdos.
    And nobody knows if Primo would have been a scrub.

    Good players come back from anything even if there are significant amounts of risks:
    - kobe (later somehow became a women’s rights icon )
    - pedo
    - Strickland
    - rodman
    - arenas
    - Alvin Robertson
    - Jason Kidd
    - bonzi wells
    - Ruben Patterson

    Bridges is likely going to come back as well.

    Point is, if there is talent, some team will take the risk, every time.

    The question is does primo have the talent to pique someone’s interest.

    The question actually is (look at the thread le), will he return to the Spurs, and the answer is never. They already paid a settlement to the psychologist, admitting legal liability. If he were to return and do it again, it could financially ruin the franchise.

    Allegedly, a bunch of organizations were interested when he was cut loose, but none after they did their due diligence.

    Not saying it's OK to show your around, but let's not make Primo some major criminal. It's more a mental health than a criminal issue.

    And would that psychologist had done her job, she would have told him to pull the monster back in the very first time and try to see what was obviously wrong here... And nobody would have heard about it.

    It's still fresh. no one was signing him right out of the bat considering the situation anyway, nor probalby this season.

    disturbing how some of y'all think whipping your out repeatedly isn't that big of a deal... and it's funny how stupid you have to be to think the spurs didn't nip this before more details came out.

    and the organization would be seen as not giving a about women's safety in the workplace on top of it all, he's never coming back
