Former NBA center Daniel Orton was released from his team in the Philippines after making fun of Manny Pacquiao's basketball ability.
"[Pacquiao playing] is a joke," said Orton. "Professional boxer? Yeah. Congressman? All right. But professional basketball player? Seriously? It's a joke." Pacquiao is a player-coach for Kia Carnival in the Philippines and he has scored just one point in four appearances. Having said that, Pacquiao is by far the most popular man in his country, and as humorous as this story is, it's not that surprising to see so much outrage over such comments. Orton might eventually return to the NBA at some point, but he is miles off the fantasy radar at the moment. Orton may want to consider laying low for a while, as this has got to be humiliating.
