The Post-Duke Career of Josh McRoberts

Ah, the journey of Josh McRoberts. When he was at Duke, people naturally hated the guy. But being hated isn't so bad, it is acknowledgment of existence and probably relevance.

Then, after getting drafted in the second round, Josh McRoberts entered a new and exciting phase of his life: irrelevance. The guy had been known on the basketball scene since high school, so the sudden relative anonymity must have been strange.

Little NBA playing time, little D-League dominance. (Role player for D-League Champion just doesn't seem to grab people, wadayagonadooo?) Now you can't really discount the argument that his most positive contribution to the team is being Greg Oden's friend. Although I still like some of his potential as a player (remember all these nice things I said?), the basketball universe has seemingly made its final judgment that he doesn't matter after all. Its up to him to battle that.

All of this is brought home in Oden's recent workout clip for ESPN. Here, McRoberts plays the role of anonymous workout partner to perfection. Watching the first couple scenes, I actually was wondering who that white guy was working out with Greg. He looked kinda tall, I wonder if he plays basketball? I believe this is a sign that Josh should do all he can to maintain this friendship.

Right...If he's lucky, McRoberts might score a spot on Oden's payroll as offseason pickup game buddy at 24 Hour Fitness.

Josh McRoberts totally averages a double double at 24 Hour Fitness noon-ball.

...and a near double double in 24 Hour's league play.
