Jared Dudley recently responded to trolls on social media who were questioning his place in the NBA.

With the NBA suspending the 2019-20 season due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Los Angeles Lakers forward has had plenty of time on his hands to respond to haters on Twitter.

Dudley singled out one troll in particular and explained why teams still desire his services.

The 22nd pick in the first round of the 2007 NBA Draft, Dudley has been a valuable reserve and starter to various teams throughout his career.

His best season came in the 2011-12 campaign with the Phoenix Suns under coach Alvin Gentry when he averaged 12.7 points and 4.6 rebounds per game in 31.1 minutes of action.

With his minutes drastically lower this season than at any point in his career, Dudley is averaging a career-low 1.5 points in 7.5 minutes a night.

Nevertheless, he remains a three-point threat whenever he is on the floor for the Purple and Gold.

Currently, the 6-foot-6 forward is knocking down a career-high 47.1 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc.
