Follow me on this one.
It was Mad Ants guard Oliver Lafayette who got called up to the Boston Celtics late last season, and even played a game, and practiced with the team during its playoff run.
So you'd think that Lafayette - back with the Ants - would want to show the Celtics' D-League affiliate, Maine, what he's got in this two-game series in Fort Wayne.
Instead, Lafayette has been a no-show.
He didn't start today's game (reportedly because of disciplinary reasons), and once he got in, hasn't done much since.
It's halftime, and the Red Claws are ripping apart the Ants, 64-49, and Lafayette has shown zero emotion in his 14:48 of playing time. This is supposed to be one of the team's best players, but he has 4 points, an assist, a turnover, and is getting beat defensively.
If the Ants are to get better this season, and if Lafayette is to remain with the team, the 6-2 guard has to show leadership and emotion. Otherwise, one of the best players on the floor might be one of the worst on the bench.
We'll see what he's got the next 24 minutes of the second half.
