Not so fast...looks like extra money grab didn't work in his favor

Just remember when it was first mentioned who his agent was. Never repped a basketball player before. Had some football players. Probably not the best decision.

From that article:

Shamorie Ponds will not join Virtus Roma.
As first reported by Superbasket and confirmed to Sportando, Ponds asked for more money and Virtus Roma gave up on signing him for the remainder of the season.


Yikes. Demanding too much money?

I hope that was after Italy fell through.
Otherwise 2nd is shaping up to be just like the 1st.

Hate to bring this up again. But saw Shamorie shouting Powell out on his senior night. Cant help but think he's kicking himself. He could of been having his day on Saturday, possibly in the running for National player of the year, tourney bound. Instead he's sitting at home not playing PRO BALL

Wasn’t as big a Ponds fan as many here but here’s hoping he is not sitting home lamenting what might have been but striving to succeed, whether it be in the US or wherever.

I always wonder what's going through their minds? Not judging him, I'm sure he had his advisers. There's a fine line between staying another year and getting better and staying and getting hurt. Who knows what would have been. In a selfish way, i was hoping he stayed.
