Qyntel Woods Blotter Update: The Italians are aware that he will burn them, give him a half-million dollars

I know, I know. Blazer fans do not like thinking about Qyntel Woods, ever. (If you really need some background on why, peruse this.) Last time we paid attention he had signed that two-year deal with the Olympiacos in Greece. This blog said something about a change of scenery being a good thing and Woods possibly getting his career on track.

Funny stuff, considering Woods apparently has some sort of phobia of being on any sort of tracks. Career tracks, train tracks, Caribou tracks, these things are not for him. I thought I'd catch you all up to date on the man. From wikipedia:
Woods signed a two-year contract with Greek League team Olympiacos on July 16, 2007.In 10 appearances in the regular season, he averaged 12.5 points per game in 26.3 minutes per game.In 2007-08's playoffs, his numbers went down (8.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, in 20.7 minutes per game).

Woods was caught using marijuana during the Greek finals, and thus committed a breach of his contract, which led to Olympiacos terminating the final year of his deal. Subsequently, he signed with the Italian league's Fortitudo Pallacanestro Bologna after being released by Olympiacos.
What? Did you expect him to wait until after the finals to get high? He is a human being! And of course, he was quickly signed by another team. So I babelfished some Italian sites to see what the locals were thinking of this newly arrived talent. I'll post all the rough translations and original site links below. If it is only a tidy summary of the translations you want, meet me at the bottom of this post.

From here:

I have store clerk numerous errors within and outside of the field - it admits l' wing of 2,03, 27 years, been born to Memphis, coming dall' Olympiacos -. When they have arrived in the Nba me they are piovuti I lean too many money and I was too much young. I do not want to give to others colpe mine, but they are found to me in the wrong square. In that moment to Portland not c' it was nobody that could take to me under its wing or be a model to follow. Pippen has given many only technical councils to me but”. Woods has played to Portland, then Miami and New York. E' state been involved in ugly drug history and one, perhaps worse, than ill-treatment than dogs (trained to fight). The reputation has pushed Woods outside from the Nba not the talent. “I will not never say that in Europe I feel a step to of over of the adversaries but it is true that I have characteristics physical, athletic that are much rarer here to find that in America”. It pulls from outside with nature, it closes the contropiede as if it were Julius Erving, with elegance and coordination, plays from small wing or strong wing. But it does not have continuity and it has always the same face, l' intensity goes and comes. “E' true, of it I have spoken also with coach the Sakota. E' be before what that has said to me to Las Vegas where we are met quickly after the company. My objective quest' year is to maintain to the same level of concentration for all the 40 minuteren of every game”. Soon it will come caught up in Italy from the fianc2ee who to November will put to the world the first daughter, Queen, Queen. “I consider the Nba un' positive experience that has forged me but now not us task. In the Nba there are many money but often for players of medium level not there are the minuteren in order to play and this is the main reason for which they are happy for being here. In America people to the game applaude, ago the true tifo are involved and you here more. The tifosi of the Fortitudo are exceptional, will see to make them also to amuse

From here:
BOLOGNA - To the first from Bologna escape of its new career Qyntel Woods it has marked 26 points against Barcelona with a lot of two crushed executed receiving the ground-to-air passages of Strong Joseph. In those played c' it is all the extraordinary athleticism of Woods, un' wing at which the Fortitudo it has headed heavy in order to re-enter in the turn badge after two years of distance. “I have physical characteristics that in Europe are rare, it appeals to me to play in contropiede, I and Strong Joseph, than memory well from the times in which it played to North Carolina, we are an interesting brace. We want to win and also to make to amuse the tifosi. I was become attached to those dell' Olympiacos but in Greece from time to time exaggerates, warm but more is corrected here. In any case better thus that in the Nba where people come, applaude, it eats, it chats and it does not participate indeed ”. CAREER - Woods (contracted anniversary from 550.000 dollars) is one of the great innovationes of the championship, un' former before chosen still in the full load of the athletic resources, 27 years, with un' American experience of four seasons in which it has been to Portland, Miami and New York. To carry it in Greece it has been how much has arranged outside of the field, an arrest for drug detainment and an other for ill-treatment of animals (had entered in a stupid turn in which dogs trained themselves in order then to make to fight them in obviously clandestine encounter). To its credit it is necessary to say that Woods does not try to escape to own past. “The errors that I have store clerk make part of my history - it explains - say that they are a classic boy case who has found in hand too many money too soon. They have entered in the Nba to 19 years, renouncing to go all' university of Memphis. Portland chose me when the square did not have leadership. Rather than to find someone that it guided to me is happened the contrary. But saying this I do not want to be misinterpreted: I have mine colpe and me of it I assume the responsibility”. FORTITUDO - In Greece it has caught up the quarters of end of Eurolega and the end for the lost title Greek it with the Panathinaikos. E' state also Mvp dell' All- Star Game and has gained the contest of the crushed ones. The tifosi have made a petition in order to obtain of the confirmation, the fine club has not listened to them because to Woods season it had failed a private anti-drug control (marijuana) and not l' it has pardoned. “But to my place they have had to take Josh Childress from the Nba and it has characteristics similar to mine - he tells -. I found myself well to Atene, I would have intentional to make and to win more. I will try to make it with the Fortitudo. As soon as I have signed they have gone to Las Vegas to find coach the Sakota that it was there for the summer league. It has said to me that from me sarebe waited for continuity”. “I would not have never believed that it could come from we - says Sakota - but the circumstances of it have lowered the price. In spite of the voices he is Bravo boy who does not have costanza of yield. If l' it had would be in the Nba”. It uses it the Serb or from small wing that gives strong wing and l' it has experimented also like sixth man. Answers? Always positive: it marks, it takes the bounces, it jumps, elegant and it is coordinated. The Nba? “Not us task, many players stano making my same choice because it only gives them to the money to little stars and who earns little is not sure of the minutaggio. Some time before that the contract you want the possibility to go in field and to play”.
From here:

Qyntel Woods plays in the Fortitudo Bologna. If it is not l' more hard arrived American in Italy (will be the parquet to say it), is without a doubt an only personage. Indicted in USA because guilty to organize “encounter” between dogs, 80 hours of social services more a sum cospicua to assign in beneficence, also in its first European experience, in Greece, is not unnoticed past. As soon as arrived to Bologna, it has found the way to discuss, eufemismo, with a taxista. Here like alive l' uncertainty of not knowing when the championship of basket will leave. Woods is felt landed on Mars? “I do not understand the question well and this could carry to me to innervosirmi”. How lives an American this situation of a championship that it is unknown when he begins and with which squares? “For we it is not easiest to understand this situation and what is really happening. Introduced indeed not, true documents or less, we are not understood a lot. From that they tell to me there are pazzeschi aspects that I had not never felt before d' now. I hope comes made clarity for the good of yours basket. And also for me. Because I guarantee to you that it is hard to wait for, not to understand, not to know when it can be begun. I have wish to begin this championship. I feel the need to play seriously”. In America never it has been found in a similar situation? “Memory some year makes the lock out of the Nba, the lock out, but it was indeed an other type of battle”. How it is found to Bologna? “I am discovering and appreciating the city also through the pages of the book of Grisham " The Broker" that it is acclimatized in this city”. The problem with the taxista of some week makes? Perhaps “an error of the navigator of my Mercedes or I had typed Mars and me they are consequently imbattuto in a Martian. All resolving: I only have wants of basket and winning together to the Fortitudo. Tasks that to November my companion will render me father for the first time, of a child. And as soon as possible they will catch up to me here in Italy. If the life is made cycles, now I feel that of a new one is beginning completely. Creed is that best one”. Even, for November, a game in championship has not still played not even. “I hope or striking, because with what I am feeling in these days I could also believe to us”. In Greece the tifosi dell' Olympiacos is come down in public square in order to protest against its not reaffirmation. “The Greek tifosi are indeed outside from the world. Warm, pazzeschi, to the point to exaggerate and to go also beyond, as it happens above all in the challenges between l' Olympiacos and the Panathi-naikos. Me they are however found well to Atene but by now it is a chapter closed it, not me interessaparlarne”. It will return in Nba? “Today alive every game like a challenge, as if it were that decisive one. E' my lifestyle basket and the plan of the Fortitudo are suited to me: c' it is all to reconquer, leaving again nearly from zero. My Nba now is here. But sooner or later I would want to begin this challenge because this wait is indeed a difficult game. For we Americans the one which is happening in Italy it is own difficult one to understand”. Emanuele Righi ”. CAREER - Woods (contracted anniversary from 550.000 dollars) is one of the great innovationes of the championship, un' former before chosen still in the full load of the athletic resources, 27 years, with un' American experience of four seasons in which it has been to Portland, Miami and New York.

Whew. That was exhausting. And to think, all of that can be summarized into four bullets. What a waste of time. I hope you didn't actually read all that garbage.
  • He now has a daughter (Congratulations)
  • He is being paid $550,000 (Congratulations!)
  • The Italians know he will at some point let them down, but are OK with it because he's like, really athletic.
  • Woods blames the Blazers for his problems, because they didn't have good leadership in place when he was drafted. Then he adds that he takes responsibility for his actions. Awesome.
So let the predictions begin! What will Woods be kicked off of this team for? What team will sign him next? I am hoping he somehow ends up in Finland with the famed Honka Playboys.
