Before Lebron, this guy was supposed to save the Cavs franchise.

Where the hell is he now?

Probably with some rare infection in some odd part of his body.

Guy has the craziest health problems. He never really got a good shot at a career becaues of them.

He's pretty much done for.

He's a headcase that never delevoped a solid jumper (a sin for a 6 foot tall shooting guard). He tried to play like AI but doesn't have the heart for it nor the talent to take the game over like AI. He is on the injured list with the Cavs. He played 11 games this season with a season high 9 points in one game....

Hard to be successful in the league if you never learned to drive left or finish with you're left hand.

He's got some talent but he's got to get over all these health problems and patch up some holes that he has in his game

He had a few good games back in the day. But I remember him being extremely inconsistent.

A nice talented player IMO, but just can't seem to stay healthy.

I think he's going to make people eat there words, and still turn into a special player down the road.

I think he has Ulcerative colitis which is an inflammatory bowel disease. My mom has the same thing.

He's also had a plethora of other injuries, most of which was in the stomach area. Could be back one day, but doesn't look likely at the moment.

He had like a urinary infection earlier as well.. I've heard hes lost 50 pounds, I saw him play this summer and he looked good. It is real sad what has happened to him because i think if he played for atlanta or charlotte hed be a 20ppg scorer on 43-44% fg

I have to agree, anybody that scores 100 points in one game has got to be worth more than what he's shown so far, I don't care who you are. I really hope Dajuan makes a great comeback, it would be a waste if he didn't...

That 100 point game is so overrated. He was playing one of the worst teams in the area, it was a technical school, and Camden full court pressed the entire game just to force turnovers and feed him 100 points.

Dajuan Wagner might be able put up 20 points on a terrible team that gives him the green light (Tyronn Lue's scoring tons), but that doesn't necessarily mean that he's a good player. He'd chuck up shots and breakdown the offense, going for his own. To be perfectly honest, he's not a better player than Eddie House, really it's not even close.

People saying that game was overrated, is overrated.
