Mikki never wanted to come to Boston

Mikki moore Apparently, leaving a last place disaster to come to Boston for a chance at a ring was very difficult for Mikki Moore. 

"It was tough," Moore said of the transition. "I had to leave Sac. To
this day, I still do feel like they're my brothers. I've never walked
out on anyone when the times get hard, and we were struggling.

Actually, that's honorable.  But he really makes it sound like he was never really into the move.

"It was very difficult," Moore countered. "But God works in mysterious
ways. It taught me a lot. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I'm
trying to bring forth that and what I've learned from that situation to
the Warriors."

Maybe this had something to do with it:

Moore signed a three-year, $18 million contract with the Kings in the
summer of 2007, by far the biggest contract he has received during his
NBA career. But the last year wasn't fully guaranteed. So when the
Kings waived him, there went $4 million.

Ah… bingo.  I'd be crying about the move too if it cost me $4 million. 

Can you imagine paying $4 mil. for the level of play we saw at the end of last year?  Wow.

    Mikki sucks.

  • JD

    Wow, this shows why Sacramento sucks, they manage to spend that amount of money on a player like Mikki Moore. Kings front office = dumbasses

  • NineSevenEight

    Classic case of someone just telling everyone what they want to hear. He did the same when he was here. Unfortunately, Mikki didn’t “earn his paycheck” enough to contribute much more than the bare minimum

  • Maybe he regrets it becuase he was completly exposed in his time in boston
    like, he was so bad it was embarrasing

  • thetitleisours

    Never wanted to leave Sac?
    He needs to grow a Sac

  • Lakerhater

    Wow, Nellie must be drunk again I wouldn’t sign Mikki five fouls to a $40.00 dollar contract.

  • JD

    Well, Nellie does like going against the grain. That includes signing players that no other team would touch.

  • Lee in Oregon

    Mikki Chick-Hair will enjoy the Cali greenbud needed to fathom Nellie’s infantile methods.

  • I cannot say I am gonna miss Mikki’s contributions. Afterall, he really only contributed 5 fouls in 5 minutes per game.
    Bye bye Mikki!
