    Ask Harden and the Rockets. Ask Wade and the Heat. Ask Kobe, who sat out because of "old age" because he knew he was about to get owned. Elfrid's not playing around.
    Not trying to hate on Elfrid. Because I definitely dont think he'll be a journeyman. But, I've seen journeymen who are nice sparks for their teams. Jarrett Jack comes to mind. Being a journeyman doesn't necessarily mean you suck. It often means you're a player that is decent enough that other teams want you (with a team friendly contract) but not essential enough to the success of a team that they make them the face of the franchise. Like I said, I dont think Elfrid will be a journeyman, but journeyman doesn't equal bad or ineffective.

    Austin Rivers says hello.


    But you are right. It does say a lot about the rest of his game that he gets the minutes he's getting. I would also credit the fact that he's a rookie that the Magic are trying to develop and the fact that the Magic are not very good to him getting a lot of PT. But he's making the most of it.

    That was good stuff. As a redditor, it is so cool to see someone from UL doing an AMA.

    damn I missed it..we could have asked him how Long's leadership skills are

    Seriously though Elfrid seems to get it..He will be very popular with the younger kids. I like the question about Dwight Howard.

    That Q/A was really funny.

    Don't know if this has been posted, but a good read on EP by basketball insiders.

    Default Elfrid Payton will play in the Rising Stars Challenge

    The NBA announced that second-year guard Victor Oladipo and rookie point guard Elfrid Payton will play in the Rising Stars Challenge on Feb. 13 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

    "I'm excited," Payton said shortly after he heard the news. "I'm blessed. I'm humbled and happy that the hard work has paid off, even more excited that my man gets to come with me, with Vic. I think he's having a great year, a pretty good year, and obviously it's being noticed."

    This puts a new twist on the rookie sleepover. I wonder if Elfrid was the lucky guy:
    http://www.sportsgrid.com/ncaa-baske...er-to-do-list/

    From the article:
    "She also insinuated that she slept with a contestant in one of the three NBA All-Star competitions who did “very well in a final round of one of their activities” over the weekend. She also suggested it was one of the younger players but not Zach Lavine. Put on your sleuth hats folks, because that leaves either Victor Oladipo, Michael Carter-Williams, Elfrid Payton, or Trey Burke."
