His name sounds like a snack you might be offered at a German guys house...as in "Velcome. You want von wafer? Is delicious."

Nobody; he's been in the league 4 years, and nobody has heard of him.

Lmao, so he's nothing special

Who is this guy? And I just love how the Celtics and the Heat are starting up a rivalry and the season hasn't even started. Maybe when they play in the playoffs, James will give up like he did in Cleveland!(:
