Looking for a new job?
The longest tenured Warrior is now gone. Adonal Foyle, you will be missed, not for your basketball skills, but for the energy you brought back into the arena during blowouts. The game could be out of hand and people might be leaving for the exits, but you were always ready for those last 2 minutes of glory. With the crowd chanting "We want Foyle", the people in the aisles heading for the exits would stop and turn hoping to catch a glimpse of your skills. I've never seen a bench player consistently receive so much good will from the crowd. We all wanted you to do well and here's hoping that you do well in Boston, Orlando, or where ever it is you may go.
Foyle's patented move: Make your face look like the ball
Adonal was the man at Colgate U. So much so, that we picked him over some random high schooler whose name sounds like a McDonalds sandwich, McGravy. Looks like we made the right move, since over their careers, our guy has more blocks and a higher field goal percentage.
Is this true? Adonal Foyle has never attempted a 3 point shot in a regular season game? His Yahoo player profile shows him taking 0. I find that hard to believe since he works on that half court shot all the time. I just figured he shot out there because the three point line was too easy for him.
Anyways, our grades for the GOAT after the jump...
Even though 2 of the greatest centers battle each other on the court…
They’re still great friends off of it.
Overall Grade: D+

Goodbye Adonal. It was great having you on the team. Not because of your basketball skills, but because there was always someone to get excited about during blowouts.
What grade would you give Adonal Foyle?
