"A couple days ago on Twitter, David Thorpe asked: 'How's it gonna look when NBA players playing overseas get sent home because they are just not worth what they were being paid?' Since then, DeJuan Blair -- a starter on one of the league's best teams in San Antonio -- was let go by his Russian team. It's not that Blair didn't play well. His numbers were solid. It's also not that he has a big attitude -- quite the opposite. The problem appears to have been simply that they could get similar production for less from any number of other players. He was good, but the amount they paid him, in that league, is reserved for greatness."ESPN's Henry Abbott on money drying up overseas.
