He concluded the streak of posts with a scenario in which he just says ‘bye,’ while holding an NBA microphone in front of him.

He made it plain that he would behave better on and off the court after failing to lead his Memphis Grizzlies to the NBA Finals this season. He appeared in another contentious scene a few weeks later, and it’s unknown what’s going on with him at the present.
